Curves Around The World: Week 6 - Colour Blocking

Good Morning, fabulous fashionistas!!!
You all know that, it is that time of the week for "The Themed Outfits" with my beautiful lady friends who are from all over the world. I must say I am happy I came across these girls in the bloggerville world. I am really loving these themed outfit exercises as they really challenge me and it feels good when I succeed doing them.
This weeks theme is COLOUR BLOCKING and by far it is the most that has really challenged me as I never tried the trend before. I really tried my best so you need to cut me some slack and forgive all discrepancy identified.

At first I thought id do royal blue and yellow but I recently had posted an outfit with yellow accents and it felt wrong to be using the same colours for this theme. Pink came to my rescue.
I wore this outfit to work on Monday and it got highly windy and very cold after taking these pictures. Thank god my mink jacket saved me. My hat is a recent purchase from Alwal North Foschini. Got it from the sale sold for R199.00 and I got it for R120.00. So, I just had to wear it this day although weather did not approve. I cared less, I just needed to wear it. You know when you have bought something new - you get excited and itch to wear it #that's how I felt: the wind was never gonna stop me at all, lol. 
Please enjoy this post cause I really made an effort putting everything together. Taking these pictures was really fun as I jumped around posing. I must say I love the pictures, they are a great translation of how I was that day. I really thank my colleague Ntembi for being patient with me even when the weather sucked.  She really is an awesome photographer - am lucky to have her :)

The only principle I know about colour blocking is that, one should not use more than 3 colours when putting together a colour blockin outfit. So, I used royal blue, plum and pink - I did pretty good, I think - the colour mix well. What is your opinion? 

"The wind really punished me on many of these pics - please excuse some"
