On Father’s Day and Color Blocking!

Dear followers,
Well, after a lovely Father’s Day with my awesome dad (the goob in the picture above, showin’ off his fancy Eggs Benadict and hash brown breakfast), I figured I would dress nice for the Father’s Day Mass at my perish. I’m just going to elaborate briefly on why today was different than any Sunday best. My dad is my hero. He has always been an incredible example of hard work, spirituality, love, and sacrifice for me and my family, not to mention he always gives me his two cents on my fashion. Favorite outfit comment he has ever made: “You look like the wife of a foreign ambassador.” He is silly, but he introduced me to the love of creativity that I now possess, which brought me to make this blog in the first place. So, while parents can be silly, always show them how much you love ’em! 😀 Anywho, I wanted to look extra special for my dad, so I decided to go ambitious and wear my rise and fall hem skirt, but the fun doesn’t end there. While looking for some shoes I came across my orange wedges which I love. Blue and orange. Orange and blue. Then, to my surprise, I realized I had color blocked. Now, I don’t know how y’all feel about color blocking, but it intimidates me like crazy. By definition, it is having an outfit containing two or more statement colors, not all mixed together in some pattern, but separate from each other. Hence, the blocking part. It’s a big trend, and all I can think of when I see it is that I would probably look like a fool trying to do it! But, thinking back to this years school art class, I remembered complimentary colors. The easiest way to describe complimentary colors would be if you took the three primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) and which ever one you choose, you add the remaining two together, and get the complimentary color for the chosen primary. For example, if I chose blue, I mix red and yellow and get orange. For yellow, its purple. For red, its green. Then I came to find out the color blocking wasn’t too difficult, it just can’t be too extreme. Pretty fun discovery, trying something new proved to yet again be extremely rewarding in my opinion. Thoughts on color blocking? Please comment and share, I’d love to hear about it! 🙂 Also, if there are any requests on topics for future posts, let me know!
Love,
Konnor with a K
P.S. couldn’t get the silly caption to work, but my top is from Old Navy, the skirt is from Francesca’s, and the shoes are from Rack Room 🙂 And credit to KK again for the wonderful photography!
