Color Blocked | The Creative Closet

Is it too late in the season to wear bright colors? I think not. Not ever.

Today's prompt for the Creative Closet was color blocking. It was something I have never done before - usually I'm the type to do a pop of color with neutrals. However, that is what the Creative Closet is all about, trying something you wouldn't have before, right out of your own closet.

Senior picture anyone? Pretty sure I have one that looks exactly like this...
I'll be honest, I mulled over this prompt for weeks.  I Pinterested it. I Googled it. I went through options in my head over and over. I tried on 3 different combinations. Finally I arrived at this.

I bought these bright green pants for Saint Patrick's Day. They were perfect with a flowy black top and black boots, but I haven't really worn them since.

Green Crop Pants : JC Penney | Blue Boatneck Top : American Eagle (old) | Belt : Target | Shoes : T.J. Maxx | Necklace : Our World Boutique

They were the perfect thing for color blocking! I added a solid blue top and ta-da, color block perfection.

Plus it was the perfect outfit to wear these shoes with. I mean LOOK at these wedges.
