Back in May we had a You Pick Wednesday post about Amoxil for cats dosage. Everyone’s favorites? Red with lavender and red with mint! Well, considering I’d never worn red with mint before I decided to give it a try for this week’s Trend Spin Link-Up of color-blocking.

Color-blocking is really just fancy way of describing complementary or analogous colors worn next to one another. This article from Corporate Fashionista does a good job of describing the different ways you can incorporate color-blocking into your wardrobe. It’s definitely not for everyone and it’s something I definitely don’t do very often. Of course, that might be because I actually don’t own a lot of colorful shirts so I tend to wear one bright piece and then the rest neutrals.

What do you think? Color-blocking yay or nay?
