Today's Everyday Fashion: Bright Blues

Inspiration: Refinery29

I never seem to tire of pairing my two favorite colors together - bright cobalt and electric blue. (See it in an office look here.) My inspiration photo convinced me I should try these colors yet again - this time in a dressy shorts look with low heels and a new necklace. I plan to wear this out to brunch, or for a casual dinner on a hot night. Would you wear bright blues?

  1. I really love these colors together! You rock this look!

    Have a great day! Xx. Pip


  2. Yes I would! Just did it this week. Cobalt blue maxi dress with a bright teal blue jacket. Your shirt is reminding me of a shirt I have that I may be able to pair with the maxi as well. I have shoes that color, but didn't think of them. May have to try that next time. :-)

  3. Love this outfit.


  4. Very cute!! Love the shirt and shorts. I may have gone with a nude pump though. Love your site!

  5. I really like this all blue look, I need some more blouses like this one for summer time! Please check out my Friday Link Up and enter one of your posts for next week!


  6. I like the outfit but hate the half tucked shirt. Looks sloppy. I'm for full tuck or no tuck.

  7. Love the color blocking look of this outfit! I have worn something similar with a cobalt blue pencil skirt!

  8. Thank you so much! The waves are natural. I add Loreal's Sprnging Curls when my hair is done air drying to reduce some frizz but that's it. :-)

  9. Loving all the different hues of blue. Don't forget to enter my stella & Dot giveaway.



  10. I was thinking that I remembered a similar look from you! I loved it the first time and I still love it here! I adore these colors together.

  11. I bought a pair of cobalt shorts from Banana Republic's Factory store last summer and I absolutely love them! I wore them all summer and plan on doing so again this summer.

  12. Love Love love! The way your necklace ties everything together is perfect.


  13. LOVE this look!!!! You look incredible in blue!

  14. Would love to see you write a post on seasonal color analysis.

  15. Definitely yes! I'm thinking cobalt may be the new black because it is extremely versatile. Blue is a great color and seems to go well with any skin tone. Love your pairing of the two shades.

  16. Love the blue! Have you worn the J Crew shorts before? I've heard they're great and want to try them, but I can't decide which inseam to get. Because I'm on the tall side (5' 8"), I'm thinking the 3" might be kind of short for me.

  17. While I look at the lovely outfit in your Inspiration photo; and also at your gorgeous outfit, too, I almost feel as if I'm............ gazing out *across the ocean blue*, J. ............ i.e., because the Outfit Vibes are so cool-blue and serene!!

    Your new Stella & Dot Maldives Necklace----(with #150 beads of reconstituted turquoise; green-hued beads; and faceted golden beads)----is just SO pretty!! I particularly like the necklace's faceted golden beads; and also............ (right before the bolder curb chain at the back)............ the miniscule *squares of shiny gold* in the delicate, vintage-inspired, oval-link chains. On "Zoom In," those tiny little squares are very shiny............ i.e., all of the RADIANT golden touches in your Maldives Necklace, J., are simply like----*sparkling sunlight on water*!!

  18. I have seen a lot of blue/green combos lately and I'm loving them. Your look is very summery!


  19. I love this color combo! I wore a similar combo on my blog last week :)


  20. I love the teal and cobalt blue combination! Your outfit looks great!


  21. I'll have to try that this summer, although, I don't think my hair will turn out looking as good as yours, ha! Thanks for the tip!
