Fashion Inspiration: Blues

Monday, January 30, 2012

A few days ago while waiting for my appointment in the dental office, I read an article about the comeback of blue shades with cobalt hue as the main attraction. I've always loved midnight blue and navy is one of my favourite black colour alternatives. Although, I adore the cheerier shade, I'm not sure if cobalt suits my complexion but I'm extremely happy to wear darker shades of blue mixed with greys and mustard colour instead :) Love! Darlings, what shades of blue you fancy most? Do you wear blue? xo

P.S: Also, some red love and the dreamy winter whites.
P.P.S: Other snazzy trends:)

Wore my fave cobalt blue Suzy Chin dress last week when I had a few blogger friends over.
It's such a happy colour.

I love mixing different shades of the same color. I think it's a fun way to play with color.

I am always self conscious because I wear so much dark blue. I LOVE cobalt thought. But baby blue is my absolute favorite.

I tend to wear extremes when it coems to blue. Either very dark navy or bright colbalt blue!

blue is my all time favorite color.
I grew up in a blue room and it stuck with me. My closet is filled in blue dresses and shirts. It fits my complexion perfectly and brings out my hazel/blueish eyes.
It makes me feel comfy and secure.

I really love jewel tones, so a nice rich blue is what I lean towards. I do love navy though!
