Color Blocking

First I need to talk about something very important.  Am I the only person who has a hard time with those little things you have to fill out on some blogs before you can leave a comment...you know the ones to show that you are human?  Am I the only one who has a hard time with those?  I seriously struggle, why do they make them so hard!?
Like everyone in the world can tell what is written if you pile a bunch of letters on top of each other.  But I do like that when I get it wrong the first time, it nicely tells me that there is "one more step" until I can comment.  Like everyone has to do 5 of them before they can leave a comment, we are just going through the steps.
Okay maybe that was confusing, but since I love to check out all of your lovely blogs and it happens a bajillion times a day, I had to get it off my chest :) I totally understand their use, but it would be nice if the provided something for us who are word verification impaired. Like maybe we could type the alphabet backwards or the Gettysburg Adress, I am pretty sure both of those would take me less time :). Moving on.

I have to admit Spring has been fun to find outfits for.  I have all of my winter outfits still in my closet because it is too cold here to put them away, but my spring summer stuff is just waiting to be worn, so I end up with the above outfit that is a bit of a mixture of it all. 
Cardigan: Jcrew | Tank: Jcrew | Skirt: Down East Outfitters | Boots: Banana Republic | Bag: Aldo | Belt: F21 | Jewelry: Cache, Ann Taylor, Macys

  16. Hi Emily - thanks for your lovely comments on my blog! I'm with you on the word verification thing - I read someone's post a while back where she berated their use and begged everyone to stop using them (they have changed recently to become really quite difficult) so I got rid of them on my blog. I think we set it when starting a blog because it seems like the thing to do maybe...?

    Am loving your style - your use of colour is fabulous, so perfect for spring! Now following you!

  25. This is a new way of doing pastel trend, mixed with light and/or bright colors. Plus that contrast belts is really gorgeous! It doesn´t help that I´m a big fan of riding boots too. :)

  26. You look would have been so perfect for the color block post my fellow blogger friend and I did today. I need to be better about getting the word out.

    I agree about captcha - so annoying! And your coral/aqua/yellow/cognac outfit is fantastic!
