Bloggers Do It Better: Colorblocking Challenge!

BDIB#1_1

When I read about the Bloggers Do it Better Challenge on Kristina’s PSS blog last week, I was immediately in!  I thought it would be a fun way to try out new trends and that it would give me extra motivation to take outfit pictures.  This week’s challenge was colorblocking or bold stripes, and when I remembered about it yesterday, I had no clue what to wear!  I almost thought about bowing out and waiting for the next assignment, but then I decided to push through because that’s the whole point of a challenge!

earrings- gift, shirt and skirt- forever 21, wedges- Old Navy

 

First, I found the brightest solid-color bottom I own- this skirt.  Then I searched through my shirts to find something that I could wear with the skirt.  I didn’t want to go for green because I thought then I would look too Christmasy, so then I pulled out this bright turquoise tee.  And that’s where I stalled for a while.  In my head I thought, “Do these colors really work together?”  Then I said, ‘Screw it! I’m going to wear them anyway!” I set up my tripod, put on some bumping music, and had so much fun taking these pictures!  I was just bouncing around and trying all sorts of poses and here are the results =)

Tell me: Are any of you participating in Bloggers Do it Better?  Have you guys tried the colorblocking trend?
