Mixing patterns and color blocking

One of my favorite things about this seasons trend is color blocking, and the ability to mix patterns!
The concept is so fun and it really allows you to dig deep into your closet and throw a super cute and FUN outfit together!
I love to draw inspiration from my favorite eras and ideas from fashion icons of their time!
This week I'm back home visiting east Tennessee and not only are the views breathtaking but weather is spectacular!
So my outfit of the day is exactly this:
A cute pair of high waisted pleated front shorts that are color blocked a light blue and ivory. Then I paired it with a tight tank (bright coral-pink) tucked in and to tie the look together I added a snake skin belt. Love.
Of course i added a pair of sweet little juicy couture earrings, my favorite watch and a cute owl necklace(my vintage find)
Throw on my cork and beige wedges and I'm ready!
oh and I changed my color color from brunette to blonde.
The color bug got me good- I am in love with my color for this summer

On-the-go Jewelry

Traveling again this weekend, and again I find myself blogging about great travel ideas :)
This time its for your jewelry and accessories--When I pack a bag I really never know what I will end up wearing or how I want the outfit to look. Nothing is worse that trying to find something to cram all of your jewelry into, worry about everything getting tangled up and then loosing half of it!
I found a CHEAP alternative and awesome idea.. by accident. I went to Hobby Lobby and was checking out the scrapbooking section. They carry a brand called Paper Studios. I saw this super cute little zebra print case with plastic inserts all different sizes and they zip!
I can put bracelets, watches, earring, everything in this cute little organizational bag.Here are some pictures of how I carry my jewelry! Its not bulky even with chunky necklaces and things. Best thing I have seen by far for traveling with jewelry.
