Bright blue hues are my weakness. Royal blue, cerulean blue, cornflower and steel blue – I think I have them all in my wardrobe. My very first painting purchase has been of something blue and surreal (I was 16 or 17 at a time so don’t hold it against me). And even though I filled my closet with a variety of other colors over the years, I am still partial to blue – the fact that an entire shelf of blue shoes will confirm.
This blue butterfly silk top is a recent purchase from one of the flash sale sites. When it comes to embracing bright colors, there’s hardly a better way to let them stand out than pairing them with a monochrome piece. My white checkered skirt is a true veteran of my closet but I found some alternate options (suggestions below).
Outfit details: Blue top (similar one here, also love the bold look of this Dylan Gray top), Skirt (same pattern Tibi wrap skirt or similar style in light blue), my favorite M. Gemi Cammeo pumps, Big Buddha clutch (good alternative or a great bright orange wristlet), Michael Kors watch, NY and Company last year’s necklace (similar model or a very close match here), Michael Kors cat eye sunglasses (purchased a while back, found a very similar model here), Mango Outlet wrap belt (on HUGE sale now!)
