As much as I love fashion, and coming up with looks that I feel represent me, and stretch my style- I also love looks (in this case a dress) that do all the work for me. I’m ironically both very heard working and very lazy at the same time! But, who could blame me when the dresses that do the work are this chic? And the secret? Colorblocking. No matching, no worrying about things going together- just letting the colors and the prints do the work.
Part gown (have I ever mentioned that there isn’t a party dress that I don’t love?) but also part great for any occasion (from brunch on), I’m just in love with this colorblocked dress.
I love the color blocking, IMHO red and pink are an underrated color combo, and here I love the take with a slightly maroon red and more of a hot pink. The subtle animal print (matched on the shoes) is just as refreshing pop (as opposed to my go-to leopard). The cut- from the neckline to the billowing sleeves, and I also love the way that the skirt flows around me. I’m such a huge fan of how clothes make me feel- and this dress made me feel vintage in all the right ways, and sophisticated and fun and ready for anything.
Lazy? Not so much, but incredibly efficient. What I love about colorblocked dresses like this one is that the outfits are completely foolproof. Don’t feel like putting together a look? Hate to choose? Simply let the color blocked dress do the work for you. There are days when that helps- and if your fashion helps, that’s a story I’m interested in.
This dress is FKSP, I’m a little in between sizes, but am in a small here and it fit perfectly! I’ve also linked similar dresses and these exact shoes (which will also go great with everything from shorts to jeans to dresses like this one)- and while I’m not usually one for matchy-matchy- I love how these pink shoes match the dress.
What are your go to colors? And do you ever color block them? I would love to hear all about it!
