I had thought about putting these pieces together early on in the 30 for 30, but I felt intimidated because the colors were so bright and I hadn't done color blocking before.  The idea of color blocking with such bright colors freaked me out a little.  However, as the 30 for 30 progressed and as summer finally began to show itself in San Diego I found myself craving more color!  But I was still a little freaked out by the idea of color blocking with such bright colors.  BUT THEN...Kendi wore this outfit with the same color scheme, and I felt a kick in the butt to stop being intimidated and just do it.  So, I did.  And here it is.  

I'm proud to say I finally tried color blocking--I even added a touch of green!

    I felt the same way about color blocking with bright colors.  But then I saw Kendi and another blogger do it and I felt convinced that I could do it too.  You outfit worked out beautifully.  Those colors work very well together and it's a perfect mix for summer.
