Hey lovelies! I'm loving the colour blocking trend for spring that I see in the fashion magazines since February. I especially like the mixture of fuchsia and brick red I saw in the March issue of InStyle. So I tried on the combo for a dinner out with friends last Sunday. I kept the shoes in the neutral family. I think two bold colours is enough, lol!

Fuchsia sleeveless top by Banana Republic, cotton stretch pencil skirt by American Apparel, nude stilettos by Nine West:


I also did something a bit different with my hair. I was watching hair tutorials and came up with this french braid that leads to a braided side bun. I quite liked the result though you can't tell in the pic, but trust me it looked neat in person. I'm usually very lazy with my hair but I always appreciate the effort when I do take the time to fix it up:


Hope you guys enjoyed this non-makeup related post. Let me know if you want to see more of these :)
