Color Blocking for Fall

The color blocking trend has persisted for a few seasons now and is holding on strong for fall 2013.  In today’s look, my Joie blouse makes color blocking easy as it masterfully blocks nile blue and black, making the top perfect for any fall look.  Remember when I found this blouse for $25 (orig. $168) in Nordstrom Rack?  What a bargain!

Yesterday, I wore the blouse with black ponte knit pants and a trench coat to ward off the chilly winds.  A gunmetal chain link necklace and stripe handbag complete the outfit.

    I'm pretty sure color blocking is never going away, and I love the color of the blouse on you!
