Colorblocked

As I browse the virtual racks of Nordie’s, searching for the dress my mom will wear for her dinner cruise wedding next month, sheaths of blocked color are proving to be quite the distraction.  I love how artsy and Rothko-esque they are, and this summer, it’s certainly not all about the primaries…which has my nostalgic and pastel heart happy.

From coral and dove grey to aqua and chocolate, this season’s colorblocked dresses got a nostalgic makeover.
