rock the color block...

So I'm back in a shopping mood (finally) since I haven't really given two hoots about hitting the stores since last fall. I felt I had everything that I "needed" and not much was speaking to me. But no more! One can only wear black/brown/black for so long. I've got NEW inspiration...bring on the color kids!

Ka-chow! That's a lot of color..and I'll admit it sort of intimidates me, but I broke down and grabbed some mint-green skinny jeans ($19.99 from Winners) and a cobalt blue pair from Old Navy ($20.00 on sale this week).  I'm naturally a black on the bottom, color up top sort of dresser but I think this is worth a try for this summer...I can't hide in black forever!


  Zip it ok?...This is just a regular Dolman sleeve top in a bright turquoise green but the zipper detail (on the back) makes it interesting, no? I grabbed these metallic flats, since metallics are the shiz this season...so they say...
(Top, Zellers $14.99, flats Zellers $12.99)

Color blocking and Zippers? Yes and yes.  (Bottom Block top, Suzy Shier $25.00)

For that wedding/baby shower I'll inevitably have to attend, Pleated, Belted, Chiffon Dress in Navy, (Suzy Shier $40.00)

 So are you all still hiding in your fleece and Uggs?  I don't blame you if you are...its hard to shed the layers and show some skin. Mama needs a tan something terrible but that's not going to be an option for months yet. 
 I even have a hard time ditching socks and wearing flats -never mind sandals? What if it starts snowing again...that can happen at ANY GIVEN MOMENT in these parts...

Have you caught the spring shopping fever yet...are color/short sleeves/bare legs calling your name?

Cute clothes! I'm lovin' the mint green pants.
It is the same way with snow around here (Chicago area USA) I'm keeping my boots next to my flip-flops which I pulled out today for the first time! :D

Nice buys! I love the colored denim. I bought a pair of purple skinny jeans from American Eagle last week but they weren't $20 : (

Love the Zell-Zells deals! I just wrote about my $15 flats from WalMart and thought that was a deal - guess not compared to those!

So glad to see you got some mint colored jeans! And zipper tops! I´m really into yellow right now... I know, must have bumped my head or something but I really like it ;)

I love the coloured pants. I have to admit I'm already in the mood for Spring fashion, though haven't yet splurged on many new things. And I definitely feel a pedicure coming on soon.
