Color and Confidence: BLUE

Rainbow Week continues with…you guessed it, BLUE!!

Dress:  The Limited (Available here)
Blazer:  New York & Company (Similar here)

I’m combining blue and indigo here and will feature looks across the blue spectrum, from aqua to navy. 

Today’s look includes my favorite shade of blue – cobalt!

Booties:  Target (Available here)

I recently picked up this dress from The Limited after being intrigued by the mosaic print.  It reminded me of floral fireworks (if there were such a thing), which I thought was perfect for the 4th of July!!

Tote:  The Limited (Similar here)

I added the blue blazer to further bring out the blue in the dress and added a red belt and tote for a fun patriotic work look.

I didn’t realize how much blue I wore until I was looking through old blog posts.  There are just so many great shades of blue, that it’s easy to find a shade or two that you like.  Here are some previous blue outfits for inspiration:

Mix various shades of blue for a nuanced color effect that doesn’t feel too over-the-top:

Foulard and Gold Details
Printed Shorts in Redbook!!!
Spring Romance

Pair blue with white jackets and other non-black neutrals for spring/summer looks:

Blue & Neutrals
Crazy for Cobalt

Teal blues are perfect for fall!  Bonus?  This color looks amazing on almost all skin tones!!

Teal and Brocade
These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

Mix blue in a little or a lot with printed dresses:

One Dress, Two Ways
Laid-Back Sexy (Free the Tatas!!)

Pale blues like aqua and ice blue are a soft way to work blue into your wardrobe:

Shadow Florals and a Do-Over Look
Pastels and Lace

Navy is the perfect year-round neutral and a subtle way to add blue into your wardrobe.

Singin’ The Blues:  Attention!

Are you a fan of wearing blue?  I think when it comes to color, it is the easiest and most fool-proof way to go.  It mixes well with other colors and looks fab with any neutral.
