Color Blocking and Chevron

Top: Target | Skirt: Anthropologie | Shoes c/o MyHotShoes | Necklace: Oh, Hello Friend | Hairpin: Made by Me 🙂

So I know this isn’t the boldest look at color blocking that I could have created, but I consider it a subtle color blocking nonetheless.  And the chevron shoes are like blocks of colors next to each other, so that counts right?  😉  I’m happy to be finally linking up to Everybody, Everywear and Rolled Up Pretty!

And yup, that hairpin was made by me.  Did you know that I used to own an Etsy shop?  Don’t click that link if you’re looking to buy something, it’ll just take you to my Sold items, that was a fun few months!  I’m kind of getting the itch to DIY or create again.  But I just know that I absolutely don’t have time with a full-time job as a Healthcare IT Consultant and Manager, trying to keep up blogging 5-6 times a week, a 6 month old baby that needs lots of tender loving care and affection, and just trying to eat, breathe, pump, and sleep.  This is one of those posts again where I go wishing we had 30 hour days.

    Love the subtle color blocking! So funny, I was just telling my husband yesterday that it would be so great if there were just 4 more hours in a day. Cheers to working mamas! 🙂

    Those shoes are awesome! I also wish there were more hours in a day.. either that or the super power of running efficiently without having to sleep! (speaking of sleep, I should be doing that right now)

    And oh yes, I have a shop. 😉

    I love your chevron shoes! They’re adorable!
    And I think I’ve visited your etsy store before. Your pieces are really cute. You should totally start it up again!

    Ah, 30 hour days would be nice… But only if the extra 6 hours would be “me time” 🙂 I don’t think I could handle an extra 6 hours of taking care of the kids!

    And your shoes are AMAZING. Love them!

    Love the outfit (especially the shoes – I’m currently on a chevron kick!) and the stipulation of extra hours being me time sounds fabulous! Thanks for taking the time in your busy schedule to share your blog!

    Your chevron shoes are such a cute accessory to the colorblocked outfit! I have an Etsy shop but I’ve seriously neglected it since blogging…I just don’t have time!

    Your outfit is totally feminine! And no, not enough time in the day. But if we had 30, I’d just sleep the extra 6 hrs ;).
