As for my makeup, I try to keep things more toned down on teaching days, so I used a lot of neutrals. I also added a little bronzer and some light colored lip gloss for a summery look.

Overall I was pretty pleased with this look. I have been in love with coral for at least a couple years now, so I was happy to break out this tube top and pair it with another bright! I have yet to do a full color blocked look as I don't really have any bright colored pants or skirts, but I do have a pair of turquoise shorts that I might try to do something with soon. Have you tried creating an entire outfit out of bright, bold colors yet, or are you like me and only have a few suitable pieces to work with?
By the way, Banana Republic Factory Stores are currently having a BOGO sale on all their clearance items, so if you have one near you, check it out before July 13th! They seem to have a lot of bright, solid color pieces right now, so it might be just the place to put together your own color blocked ensemble! While I think I paid a whopping $12 for this cardigan, I also picked up a bright green t-shirt for just $2 and a cute skirt for $6! While I wouldn't say that my absolute favorite items are from Banana Republic, I definitely love their wardrobe staples (plus the prices at the Factory Stores are amazing)!
For now, I must be off to bake a Cubs cake for my nephew's 1st birthday (yay), but I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and are enjoying the same, beautiful weather we are having here in Chicago!
