Summer Mojo







 I’ve always been a bit of a conservative when it comes to my look. Some of my close friends wouldn't necesarily agree but I always remind them, it could be way worse! Now, when I mean conservative I don’t mean trousers and a button-up cotton blouse, I simply mean, I never take my fashion sense to extremes… I keep it as normal as I can with a splash of edgy. This is why color blocking might become my summer mojo. It's a simple way of dressing that simply requires an eye for the perfect color combinations to create a successful ensemble. It's complexity can be untangled by a fifth grader if you asked me...
When I pair one of these outfits I always go back to my kindergarten years when my mom used to talk to me about the rule of three's: wear three and only three colors in one entire outfit, more would be committing a fashion crime. I adore my mom and she's someone who can put an outfit correctly but I have never been a huge fan of her style, however I gotta hand it to her, she got something right. When it comes to this trend, I suggest to follow the rule of three’s and put together 3 pieces that are basic but different colors. Be bold! Create combinations you had never thought of, think outside the box. The main point is that when somebody looks at you they see a variety of colors in a uniform way that simply work, and don’t worry if people keep staring… you are supposed to stand out, not go unnoticed. Leave the latter to the boring people!

  40. I've never heard of the rule of 3...but it kinda makes sense! I am also a bit "conservative" when it comes to fashion, but sometimes I take a risk just for fun :)
    LOVE these colors on you. You look gorgeous!
