Ciao bellas! Kelly here, with a little gem straight from Italy to influence outfitting your next vacation. Taking in the legendary houses of Burano, Italy, one can’t help but feel a rush of inspiration from all the bursts of color. In fact, this town takes their color wheel so seriously that anyone who wants to give their home a new paint job must get the shade government-approved!

These vivid hues have me dreaming up a striking color block outfit for la dolce vita. When it comes to the rules of color blocking, the term “clashing” simply doesn’t exist. So abandon all preconceived notions of color coordination…you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the outcome when you pair two unexpected pieces together!
