Color Blocking Like A Pro

IMG_1265

I’m sorry to leave you hanging lately, but I’ve been traveling for work and without much down time. Despite my busy schedule, I managed to get inspired by a photoshoot I did for a popular shoe line’s look book, where I styled a ton of brights for next spring’s collection.

The shoot got me wanting to add more fun brights to my wardrobe. Of course, I had a tough time wanting to return these gorgeous designer culottes that I scored at T.J.Maxx for probably half of the price.

STYLIST TIP: Want to try the fabulous trend of color blocking—which is so fun that it keeps getting carried over to the next season—but aren’t sure how? Bet you can do it.

There are no rules to color blocking, but it helps to try one main bright and work around that. Then, balance it out with some neutrals, like a nude colored shoe or a metallic bag. Even black can edge up and make color blocking feel fresh.


Springtime Blues

So we’ve been complaining about the weather being unusually cold lately for the season and all of a sudden it jumped right to summer here on the East coast. (These images were taken when it was colder and windy like a hot minute ago). What gives mother nature?

In my business, I have to be prepared for all temperatures, as where I work changes from day to day. That’s why I tend to dress in layers, and usually some kind of blazer or jacket to throw on or off. I was working on a shoot for a high end line of a popular footwear company this week and I swear it changed about 20 degrees from my wardrobe room to on set. I probably took my favorite Rag & Bone blazer on and off more times than I can count.

STYLIST TIP: A blazer can also function as your lightweight jacket and look more polished than one. It’s also great for when you go to offices, restaurants or stores that blast the a/c and you don’t want to take your jacket off. This is one wardrobe staple to invest in because great tailored pieces help you look instantly more put together.
