Block Party: Orange and Blue

There’s another block party today. In the first one, Block Party: Purple and Navy, I wore my favorite navy pairing—purple and navy. In today’s post, I’m colorblocking again to create a brand new look for my orange shift dress (see it worn before in Working the Bright Shift). Orange is definitely one of my favorite colors to wear and mix with other hues. For today, my orange is partying with the blues.

My cobalt blue pumps and an ombre beaded necklace in colors of the ocean provide the perfect pops of blue to make my shift dress look brand new.

Nevis insisted on joining me on this shoot.
