Hello 2012!

Happy New Year everyone!
I’m pretty lucky. The weather in Boston has been so beautiful. So far, I’ve only had to bring out my Northface jacket a couple of times. Thank you for continuing to join in with me as I blog my way through 2012! And to start off the New Year - what better way than to color-block!
When I purchased this orange swing jacket and hot pink pants, I knew I wanted to wear them together. So when I got home, I immediately grabbed Hubby's chambray shirt to do a pairing. I really like how it turned out! For a look back at the colorblocking wheel and my research on how to pair colors together click HERE.
In terms of  resolutions for the new year I've only had one since 2008, which was to finish law school. Now that 2012 is here I am happy to say that this resolution will be completed in 4 months, finally!
 
Thank you for being on this journey with me! Wishing everyone endless happiness, success, and love in 2012 and beyond.

  51. Hey tut, you rock the color blocking trend. I like that you take it a step further by wearing color head to toe and not just two-three colorful pieces with nude or black background.
