Trying Out the Colour Blocking Trend

On my last shopping trip I wasn't in the mood to shop. Instead, while browsing around at Winners, I saw a pink maxi skirt & decided I'll try out the colour blocking trend. I grabbed a few other things & headed for the fitting rooms. Here are the outfits in the order that I tried them on:

The colours are completely off in the pictures because of my phones non-flash camera & the fitting room lights.

I absolutely fell  in love with the first outfit & didn't want to take it off. I thought the outfit was fun & made me look younger. My mum thought it was a bit too circus-y with the yellow top, but it was definitely my favourite combination & the whole outfit is just under $100 (before tax, of course). I've included a little price breakdown of each item in the look.

I ended up buying the jacket since I can't resist a good winter coat, a jacket, or a blazer that fits well. I'm thinking of going back for the skirt & getting either this pink or another beige-ish colour by the same designer.

My phones camera really doesn't do the colours any justice. The green is actually a St. Patrick's Day sort of green & the skirt is a hot/dark pink, not red.

Which outfit do you like the best?
Have you tried this whole colour blocking trend yet? Do you like it?

I have never tried the color blocking trend but I will be purchasing my first pair of colored jeans this week so we'll see how that goes lol. I love the first outfit and I really like the purple blazer too, where is it from?!
