Blue Friday

I love this color of blue and just realized that I wear it a lot, as is evidenced by today’s outfit...



... and by the fact that I wore a skirt in the same shade yesterday and have a similarly shaded scarf that I wear quite a bit (seen here).  I don’t know why I wear so much blue – it’s not like it matches my eyes or anything – but I do love it.  Especially this particular blue.

Today I wore the blue in dress form (Walmart) to which I added a rope-and-leather belt (thrifted), cognac sandals (Jeffrey Campbell via Nordstrom) and brass angel wing earrings (Alberta street vendor).  Because the color is so strong I decided to go with neutral accessories today, even though I like this blue equally well with brights and other saturated hues.

Today’s Takeaway?  It’s okay to wear a single color frequently, even daily.  It’s likely that no one will notice unless you tell them and if they do notice you can just say it’s your signature color.  It worked in Steel Magnolias, it will work for you. 

Happy Friday, Everyone!

  7. You look stunning! The color of the dress is divine and the awesome shoes just push it over the top. I gotta admit, I never would have guessed in a million years this dress is from Walmart.

  17. Bill Cunningham just put up a video slide show about all the people he’s seen wearing this shade of blue lately. If only he’d gotten over to the other coast, you’d have been in the video too!

  18. The bright color with the neutral is a great idea, it gives your eye time to rest and enjoy that one beautiful color. Also, your shoe collection is killing me. Those Jeffrey Campbells are the best!
