Last month I was contacted by Claire of Filofax regarding a “blogger style off” to celebrate the launch of the brand new Filofax Apex, the personal organiser that aims to “put the fun into fashion”. Each of the bloggers involved chose one out of the four colour combinations and use the organiser as inspiration for our outfit.
My choice of the pink and blue Filofax soon seemed a little ambitious when trying to put an outfit together but I didn’t let that put me off! Instead I decided to pull together a couple of mood boards.
The first is filled with the colours and confirmed that the combination is in fact everywhere and, in addition, a pretty summery combo too:
Next, I decided that as obvious as it might be colour blocking was the obvious trend to try to work for this challenge. Colour blocking was a huge trend on the catwalks of numerous designers for Spring/Summer 2011 and has been featured on this blog previously, in this post and this post. So the second mood board is a collection of images from the runway of bold colour combinations:
My favourites from the above board were the simple Jil Sander looks, with the bright bold coloured maxi skirts teamed with the crisp white tees. These then provided the basis for the outfit that I have created and that will be unveiled later today, on the Filofax Facebook page (look out for Twitter updates) and will be unveiled here tomorrow. Now, comes the part that I loath and that is to ask that you might all lend a hand and “like” my look. If I win, I will receive a number of the Filofaxes to giveaway – so you will all have the chance to gain too! Win-win, no?!
