Color Blocking: Jewel-tones

I vividly recall telling my dear readers that I had recently put away my tights until fall. Well, I’m taking that back. Fortunately they’ve been “put away” to the bottom drawer and are easily retrievable. And while it’s true that I’d hoped to not need them for a few months, it’s still cool in these parts. Tomorrow though, promises nice weather.

Today I tried color blocking, starting with this bright raspberry-colored dress.

It’s a bit too low-cut for work, so I layered it over a turquoise tank top. Sometimes I can’t get away with empire-waist dresses, but this one seemed okay. It lies flat on the stomach and I don’t (I hope) look pregnant (not that there’s anything wrong with that—unless, of course, you’re not prego). The purple tights were close to the shade of my shoes (black), but added a bit of color. The bag made up for the brightness of the missing sun.
