50 Shades of Blue

Blue is everywhere. It's the perfect summer color to mimic the gorgeous blue California skies, or wherever you're located. Unless it's cloudy & rainy where you're at, in which case you can pretend you have clear blue skies. As I scoped the interwebs, magazines, style bloggers, & etcetera, I noticed a trend: layering shades of blue. I like the monochrome look. It's out-of-the-box & playful. You can utilize items together that you normally wouldn't, which is superb because I have a lot of blue in my closet...for some reason.



An all blue look is perfect for summer. What does the blue color blue signify? Well, it's the color of the sky & the ocean. Thus, it is related to calmness & serenity. Blue is said signify trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, & faithfulness. Light blue is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, & softness. Dark blue usually represents knowledge, power, integrity, & seriousness. Blue is normally associated with males, as it is a widely worn & accepted color for men. But come on ladies! We can rock the blue too. 

What else is blue? Smurfs are blue. Prior to being exposed to air, blood is blue. Bluejays are blue. Blue from Blue's Clues is blue. The Blue Man Group is blue. Obviously, the sky is blue. There's a lot of blue out there, but the question is....

Will you be sporting the 50 shades of blue look? Do any of the adjectives associated with blue apply to you?

  1. I'm such a warm tones kinda gal always gravitating towards reds and oranges in my wardrobe but something about the hot summer months makes me wanna cool it down so this is perfect inspiration. That draped skirt is divine, so edgy for day with the denim. Great mix!

  10. What gorgeous picks! I love everything you have here, esp the skirt, the denim top, and that necklace! However, not sure if I have what it takes to rock blue lips-- people might think I have hypothermia haha :( The sunglasses, the bucket bag, and that toque are awesome accessories!
