Rock the Colorblock

Top - Marshalls, Shorts - Old Navy, Sandals - Aeropostale, Watch - Michael Kors
Now that summer is sadly coming to an end, I feel this odd pressure to just colorblock my little heart out. I know that in California, I can get away with rocking spring and summer colors for a few more weeks, but with the temperatures starting to get a little cooler each day, I already find myself gravitating toward fall neutrals. Must. Get. All. My. Colorblocking. In. At least before summer is officially over. And summer is officially over for me when Starbucks starts serving my favorite: the pumpkin spice latte.

I love how purple hues are a great colorblocking choice, especially with yellows and greens. I'm also a Northwestern University grad, so I'll always have a soft place in my heart for purple. This violet top (I know it looks bluish in these photos) is becoming one of my favorites. I love the cut outs in the shoulders and the sheen to the fabric. I spent a few days in Washington D.C. recently, and rocking this top was a perfect way to keep a touristy, comfy outfit from being too boring or sloppy.

More DC photos to come next week. Sorry, I'm so behind on my posts, but these past few weeks have been just a disaster when it comes to time management with my day job, my soap making, and all of the end-of-summer activities that popped up all at once. I promise to be better next week!
