The Spring 2011 collections of Jil Sander, Gucci and Louis Vuitton were bursting with bright separates that blended into beautiful ensembles, offering electrifying inspiration. But how do you translate this from the runway to real life?

Meghan Donovan of Wit & Whimsy perfected this season's color-block trend for a trip to Southern California by pairing a zesty orange blouse with neon blue denim.

Her flowy, feminine top balances out her skinny leg jeans and open-toe wedges in a neutral hue is the must-have summer shoe. Donovan's cognac leather clutch and wrap watch add the finishing touches.

Head over to Wit & Whimsy for more images and details on the entire look.
