Amber's {outfit} Notebook: Rainbow Bright

When I pulled this blouse out of my closet I had planned on wearing the same way I always wear it - with high waisted flare jeans (like here), but that seemed so boring. While the blouse makes a statement in it's self because of the color, I decided I might as well pair it with an equally bright skirt. The bright on bright on look was the perfect combination.

Juicy blouse, Urban Outfitters skirt and heels.
For a similar look try pairing this blouse with this skirt.

I added even more color when I grabbed my Marc by Marc Jacobs purse and my gym bag.
And this use of color blocking was perfect for Pretty Shiny Sparkly's Bloggers Do it Better Color blocking challenge!

  30. Amber! I LOVE this outfit! I saw your link on PSS and was so happy to see your outfit! AND it made me think about the print on print idea. That was my problem wit the color blocking assignment since I mainly own prints. Check out my color-blocking!

  31. I'm really liking the color blocking with the opaque hose and shoes. I used sheer tights and I like your look even better!
