Crazy for Colorblock

9th December 2015

IMG_0821I’m kind of crazy for color – so when I have the opportunity to double my color and double my crazy all in one outfit, I’m so totally down!
I’ve never met a candy colored sweater I didn’t love! While most choose to done red, green or (another personal favorite) the ugly sweater for December – sometimes I like to switch things up with nontraditional festive colors. My go to is usually turquoise and red, BUT I also love how red orange and pink look all year around – lately I’ve been pairing then with (stay with me on this) burgundy – I know it’s a super weird color combo on paper but with the right pieces it kind of works.IMG_0745IMG_0812IMG_0819IMG_0790

I spotted this beanie and instantly fell in love with it – it combines baby pink, hot pink, red/orange, burgundy and plum all in one cute hat – OBSESSED! Once I found this sweater (also from old navy) that matches just enough, but not too much I was totally smitten! To keep things color blocked I paired it with an Old Navy burgundy skirt (one of my favorites) boots, a matching pink coat and light pink bag! I kept things red orange on the lips to tie things together, but easily could have gone burgundy, baby pink or plum too!IMG_0827IMG_0705IMG_0716IMG_0688

If you told me you would put orange, burgundy, pink, orange, grey and plum in one outfit – I would probably call you crazy, but sometimes color combos are just crazy enough to work! So I totally encourage you to try to step out of your color-comfort zone – take a chance, you might just surprise yourself, or at the very least have a good laugh at the craziness you create 🙂 If you try a crazy color combo and want a second opinion , send me a DM on insta, twitter or snapchat (xocourtneyquinn) and I’ll help you out!IMG_0805
