Color Blocked

Top: Hope & Glorie, Skirt: Olive Olivia, Belt: H&M, Shoes (not shown): Sam Edelman, Necklace: Ralph Lauren, Clutch: Vintage Judith Leiber


 Just when I thought Fall was going to show it's face we have been hit with a crazy heat wave...no jokes,  it was 91 degrees at 8:30pm last night. Wowzas. Wearing jeans or anything somewhat restricting was def not an option yesterday. A loose maxi and light tank was just what I needed to get through the day and I figured if the sun was bringing the heat I might as well bring the color! 
I was feeling the color blocking a la Gucci RTW S2011 in this get up...

The color blocking in this outfit is amazing! Brilliant!
Well, Fall has officially arrived here, though there are still a few days in the low 80s.

Love this - that skirt is amazing (the color, dimensions, and length) and the purple tank is the perfect color blocking piece.

The colors remind me of what I wore as a kid (the 80's were rockin') and yet are totally Gucci! Love the accessories you added, too! Also, love the heat bc it is 60 and raining here already! Ahh!

Great color blocking--I love that skirt, but man I can't get my eyes off that bag--best one ever! And isn't this weather insane? I was fanning myself from the heat about to pass out in Starbucks yesterday at 4:30pm, literally steaming up my aviators! Anyway, thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog about my new line!
