Color blocking is not my strong suit. It seems so simple right? A few colors on top of each other, no problem. Wrong. I think I own too many prints to successfully color block at any point. However, I do love the way that large blocks of color can bring an outfit to life all on their own. Color blocking is the one trend that I always feel stand perfectly on it's own and needs limited accessories (shocking, I know). So how do I color block? I cheat. And you can too!

 Now how can you cheat in color blocking you ask? Well, that's an incredibly simple answer: buy already color blocked pieces like these. Easy right? It takes all the thought out of it so if you're like me - color block challenged - you can still just as easily pull it off. I did add the dark teal sweater all on my own because I didn't want to add another color from the dress, thought it would look too matchy-matchy. What do you think? Too much?
