Welcome back!! Feeling a bit better this week. If I can be transparent with you guys, my career or lack thereof is really one of my biggest pains right now. After being unemployed for about 6 months and losing my baby, it’s been hard to pick up the pieces of my shattered life and keep going. Taking a giant step down from my previous position has been such a tough adjustment, especially financially. I have so many plans and such an extensive vision for my career path, that I’m trying my best to stay motivated and keep moving. I hope your week is going well and you guys are killing and smashing the hell out of your goals this year! One of my goals is to be a full-time blogger. I have no idea how I’m going to make that happen, but hopefully, God will give me the plan. Until then, I hope you guys are happy with your weekly dose of fashion inspiration. Now, let’s get into this look!
I’ve always been a fan of color blocking. I love the idea of colors being paired together without an obvious rhythm or rhyme. In my opinion, red and purple look phenomenal together! With both colors sharing similarities in the warm tone family and also being very close on the color wheel, the hues easily mesh without appearing as if the look was forced. Believe it or not, there’s actually a science to color-blocking, so if you guys want more information on how to pair different color pieces together, just let me know! I’ll be happy to create a post dedicated to that topic.
As the days are heating up, skin is definitely in. With my love for exposed shoulders, I thought this top was the perfect choice to combat the weather, while simultaneously offering tons of character for styling. I’ve had this purple skirt in my closet for some time, and I’ve never styled it with another color. Honestly, I really didn’t know that I wanted to do this look. While perusing the clothes in my closet, I picked out pieces that I wanted to wear and both the top and the skirt were in that category. After looking at the pieces and narrowing down my options, I just happened to hold the shirt next to the skirt and voila!
When color blocking, you should always balance your look out with a neutral, so my neutral of choice for footwear was a pair of leopard print heels. It didn’t disturb the focal point of my outfit, kept things balanced and also added in a tiny bit of print for a touch of interest. So what do you guys think?

Style Tip of the day
Color blocking isn’t for everyone, but if you’re curious about where to start, use a color wheel for reference. Colors directly across from each other are complimentary colors and pair well together. Pick your favorite and create your outfit of choice!
