Playing the blues (again)

Hello my dear ladies and one gent,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent it with my hubby, of course, and we spent some time picking out my first GIVEAWAY which will be celebrating the 100th post. It is going to be a fashionista feast so keep your laptops open:)

I spent a good time figuring out how to style this blue sheath dress because 1) I had no idea what goes with this color and 2) there were no great ideas online either. I tried to figure out what exact shade of blue it is and I believe it is called Cobalt blue. If you have a more fashionable name, please share. I don’t think it is a trend color for 2012 but I don’t really follow color trends. If the color makes me happy, I wear it. The only reason I follow color trends is to discover new colors as it seems they come up with new lovely colors every season.

So in terms of styling, I decided to use another bright color to balance out the overflow of blue. In addition, I thought the dress is too office-like, so I decided to add this hip jacket to make it more casual.
I am curious to know how you would pair this beautiful cobalt blue dress. Till next time, style it up.

    Great look! Yes that does look like cobalt blue. It might have been on trend in Australia for summer, because a few stores featured it.

    Love from the NaNa girls x

    I love how you've styled this blue dress! 🙂 the yellow and white really make it pop! A bright pink would look amazing with it too, as well as some black to really make the colour seem even more vibrant!
