***Hello Tiny Heart readers! My name is Jessica and I blog over at Jessica Chronicled. I was so excited when Sharon wanted me to guest post here because I just love her style, and because I also have a hubby-picture-taker. They're the best.
So today I wanted to discuss color blocking with you all (by the way, I never know if it's one word or two? or hyphenated?). There are so many bright colors + pastels out there in the spring color palette so it makes color blocking even easier. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to mix and match colors, so one thing you can always is try is throwing in a neutral.
In this outfit, I toned down my bright blue pants and red heels with a neutral creamy color on top. Had I chosen a bright yellow top instead, it could have worked, but it also could have turned into a big Crayola disaster. So I played it off with the cream.

It's definitely good to take risks with your style, but just trying color blocking for the first time can be scary if you have never tried it before (or sometimes even if you have). Plus, neutrals always keep it classy, so they work well with all colors. Of course there are no right or wrong answers, but sometimes guidelines help. For some unknown reason I find it easier to get myself dressed in the morning when I have a plan rather than just trying to pick out + pair whatever my little heart desires.
So, I want to know YOUR opinion. What do you think about color blocking? What's your favorite color combination? Right now mine is definitely pink + red.
