Oh Pinterest, you give so many ideas, but often I never do anything with them! I love trying new recipes, crafts, sewing ideas, etc. Of course, it is easy on pinterest to pin things and never make them. I recently have been seeing a trend with color blocking where for instance you have a top half of a dress a bright blue and the bottom a black or something along those lines. I have seen it done tastefully a few times, but most of the time if just looks weird or makes the person look top heavy or bottom heavy. I also have a problem with the fact that I tend to lean toward wearing solids. I love patterns and different colors, but since I am always looking for cheap clothes, nice patterns don’t fall in that budget often. For the first 4 years of marriage Grant and I didn’t buy clothes or have a clothing budget. Why you might ask; well one, we were poor and didn’t have any extra money, and if we did it went to paying off our student loans since we wanted to be debt free as soon as possible. Two, honestly we didn’t need clothes. our clothes only started getting holes or falling apart after around 4 years of continuous wear. If we really needed something like undies or socks, we would find a way to buy those things, but always by lowering another budget by that amount. Obviously it wasn’t always fun to not have new clothes, but it was a great way to see how blessed we still were. Now that we have a clothing budget we still try to not be crazy about buying things we don’t need. Anyway, below is my tutorial for diagonal color block shirts that I found inspiration for on pinterest!
