Outfit of the Day: Trendy Colorblocking

April 3

It's no secret that I'm not trendy. I don't "do" the big trends. I like what I like, and I stick with that about 99% of the time. There is, however, that tiny 1% of the time, when I venture into the world of trends. It's rare and often unseen, but I do it once in awhile. 

Tuesday was one of those rare days. Over the weekend, I found a colorblocked dress on major clearance sale at Old Navy. It was less than $17 dollars and so I figured I'd try it on. (Everyone's been seeming to be singing ON's praises these days anyway, so I had high hopes...) It was a medium so I wasn't sure, but I really liked the fit! It's a little breezy, but a cute day dress that really could probably be considered a work dress too! Toss on a blazer or cardigan and you've got a great work outfit!

The size medium came down to 1/2 inch above my knee and I paired it with Platinum Jacks. It wasn't ever static-y and the only time that it was hard to wear was in ONE of my classes where the air is set really high and it's super hot in the classroom. Other than that, I'm so glad I bought this dress and I know I'll be able to wear it a ton even though it is so trendy!

Do you try trends? Do you stay with classic looks and pieces? What about colorblocking? Do we like it?

That is precious! And it isn't too trendy at all... I think it looks very classic and you can wear it for many seasons! xoxo

I'd say that dress was definitely a steal! I love the colorblock trend and I love how this dress is a bit more subdued which makes it so much more versatile!

I can't get over that dress either! I posted about it too. ON has had some unbelievable cuteness lately! The thing about colorblocking is even though it's trendy, it's still pretty simple and classic. I am loving it too! Happy Easter weekend :)
