Outfit: Colour Blocking

Few things before I start my post:

  • Firstly, Hannah won my Daniel footwear competition. Not to worry if you didn't win, I still have my Sari giveaway going on!
  • Also, any Brits today: please don't forget to vote in the referendum today.

Yup, I've jumped on the colour blocking bandwagon. I really didn't think I would. I'm so likely to be seen in blues, greys and black that I never thought I'd be wearing colours like this...ever. But some of my favourite bloggers have been doing it so well that I was actually inspired. I guess that's the great thing about being a fashion blogger: being more experimentative with clothes and fashion and getting inspiration from all the amazing bloggers out there.

I wore this to a family BBQ last week. Umm, wish I hadn't gone though, because my family is PSYCHO. Anyone else find that their family is just mental? So it was a lovely afternoon of being bullied by my aunts (again), who also hated my new sunglasses (Ray Bans). Lovely, right? But won't get into it, mainly because it was followed by a pretty cool evening evening with Susie.

So I'm wearing orange HandM trousers (which I also wore a few days ago, and I'm also wearing them tonight to a tropical themed event), a yellow Hollister top and pink Barratts flats. I also went up a step and added a blue necklace. Go me!!!

I'm not too sure how the colour blocking comes across to everyone else, but I quite liked it and I know my mum loved seeing me in colours.

 Here are all my lovely inspirations: Cee, Leia, Susie, Daniela and Tanvi.

What do you think? Am I rocking it?

I changed out of that top, into a more slouchy red top to meet up with Susie and to interview a great band: The Lines. They're really cool guys and definitely worth a listen. Anyway, the funny thing is that Susie and I were in pretty much identical clothes: bold trousers, grey tank, darkish slouch top. Some drunk guy even came up to us and asked if we called each other up beforehand to match! Great minds think alike, right?

Your mums totally right to like seeing you in colours- the bright tones really suit you! I'm not normally brave enough to wear more than one colour if I'm honest...though I am practically drooling over all of the coloured jeans atm..maybe i'll come round to it?! x

♥ joei said...

I love the color blocking trend! I also have a blog entry in my drafts about this ;)

Definitely, Maybe

Leia said...

You look so good in bright colors Sherin! You should wear them more often! I love color blocking, I'm definitely going to experiment more with it :)

Hazel said...

Love. It.
I think everyone sees their own families as much crazier than they actually seem to 'outsiders'... that said mine is the craziest of all ;o)

I've been toying with the idea of coloured jeans for a while now and you may just have convinced me to give it a go! You look lovely! Ignore your Aunts ;)
Unfortunately I am old enough to remember coloured jeans the last time around...

yoana said...

Great combo: fresh and funny.:)

Cee said...

Ah, the joys of family... I moved across the country precisely to escape the kind of family event you just described :P I sympathise completely. With that said, in spite of not having very much fun, you looked amazing. I love that you did colourblock in a more casual, wearable way. And you necklace is so pretty :)
xox,
Cee

Style Eyes said...

Yes definitely rocking it. I love your combination of colours.

Kimberlee said...

You go girl! I'm still trying to get my color blocking on. I purchased a color pair of denim jeans from H&M but they're not the color I want, I want more of a salmon one so I'll be returning those. AND yes family is crazy! haha
