a match made in heaven

these pants from American Apparel are one of my favorites. I love that they are linen
too but can still be worn year around. I wore them recenty at New York Fashion Week.
I've been seeing tons of new color matches such as
 red and orange pairings,
and yellow and green pairings.
This is my spin on things. Basically you just choose two strong colors that are in the same color zone
and presto...you have yourself the NEW color block.

Pants: American Apparel | Top: Old Navy | Blazer: Necessary Objects
Sunnies: D&G | Shoes: Charles Jourdan
i am very much in love with this $8 top i got at Old Navy! a real fashion STEELE if i must say so myself. it is the perfect NEW IN color of the season and I'm crazy for it.
If only i could find pants in this color! I paired it with my very comfortable Charles Jourdan pumps that I went all over Manhattan searching for a few months ago.
what do you think of this NEW color blocking trend with two like colors?
