Curves Around the World: Color Blocking

Hey Everyone! It's that time again for another "Curve's Around the World" theme and this weeks theme is Color Blocking! I really like this trend because I love color and I like mixing different colors together. So I was excited for this weeks challenge because if you haven't noticed for the past few challenges I've been wearing a lot of black and white. Don't get me wrong I love wearing black and white but since it's summer I think that this is a great to wear color too. 
So when I was picking out my outfit for this weeks theme, I had another outfit in mind that I wanted to wear. But this past weekend California had this heat wave going on and man do I hate when the weather is like in the 100's! So when I went to wear the outfit I originally wanted to wear, I felt like I would be so uncomfortable and hot in it. (I originally wanted to wear colored skinny jeans) So since I wanted something more comfortable I pulled out this blue hi-lo skirt that I've worn before on the blog. But I really like this skirt because it's really airy and comfortable to wear. 
So when I chose the skirt I wanted to pair it with something that was lighter so I went with this mint colored top and my light yellow sweater. So the fact that my top was a spaghetti strap I wasn't comfortable wearing it alone, so I wore the sweater. I know I was doing so well with wearing sleeveless but I guess this day the insecurities won over. But I guess you always have good days and bad day, but hey at least the yellow looks cute with the rest of the outfit! :)

Since the challenge was to color block I wanted to keep my accessories neutral, that's why I chose to wear a neutral bag and sandals. By the way this is my first time I took pictures with the bag that I wore that day. I usually forget my bag or I don't really show it in my pictures, so I decided I would try out holding my bag in the pictures. What do you guys think? Is it better with or without the bag in the pictures?

  3. Great look! I love the colors you chose. They're kind of unexpected together but work so well. This is just such a cute outfit all around! xo

    1. Thanks Michelle, I'm glad to hear that the colors look good together! :)

  4. Royal blue is the colour, yey!!! you should stop having insecurities with your arm because they are ok, but I guess taking baby steps to get there helps ... really loved the mix of royal blue and mint jazzed up with that neutral colour - perfect!!! You should carry your bag with outfit, it does make a difference. your neck piece is to die for - I see myself rockin it if I were to get it ofcoz. Fab fab fab colour blockin post, simple but chic


    1. Thanks Thulie, yeah I know I shouldn't but I used to get teased about them so that's why i still have insecurities about it. But yeah thanks, I will try to have bags in my pictures now! :)

  5. love the color blocking! you picked some of my fave colors.

  6. Love the blue, green, and yellow together. I personally like layering because I like to cover my arms too, but I also don't like my bra straps to show if I'm wearing a spaghetti strap top.

    The neutral accessories are perfect with the look!

    I like that you show the purse - it gives the reader a view of the complete look! :-)


    1. Thanks Cassie and yeah that's a good point about the strap showing! And yeah I will try to take more pictures with a bag now! :)

  7. Your outfit is adorable, and that necklace is gorgeous.
    And seriously, can this weather just stop? I'm actually legitimately pleased that it's only 98* today/

    1. Thanks Sarah and I know what you mean I'm happy when the weather isn't in the 100's! hehe
