Color Blocking Fun: Pink + Red + Black

Once in a while, an outfit makes me happy so I post it. Today is one of those days. I cooked up this outfit for the shooting of Wats The Fuss season 2, episode 1, which we shot this last Sunday (to be aired on Feb 10th). We had a stylist on the team who gave us all (the hosts), 5 different trends to pick and work with. I ended up with the color blocking trend. 

I almost forgot I have always been a color blocker right from the get-go, matching colors was never my strong suit so I'd throw on totally random colors and walk outside looking like a rainbow. Back then I have to agree, my color blocking game was quite weak and all over the place so this time around I had to review what really makes color blocking work.

Thanks to the stylist on the show (Faith), she spilled out the secret of selecting colors that are somewhat related but bold....and I tried my best to get that with this look. But most of all, I went for something I just felt comfortable in. My days of being walking-rainbow are over, so I had to add the black blazer to tone things down a bit. 
Question of the Day: Are you a color blocking kind of girl? Or would you rather have matching colors with your outfits?
