A case of the blues

I just felt like wearing this particular shade of royal blue, much like the color of the sweater I wore yesterday. I did try another outfit on, but changed my mind-- this is what called to me so here I am in blue again.

The blouse is NY&Co -- I've worn it recently and I have it in green, too. The brown cardigan, Mossimo for Target, is a tried & true piece, also worn before.

What's new is the skirt. It's from NY&Co and was only $3.99! I didn't even try it on, just grabbed it on my way to the register. Even the woman checking me out was asking me where I found it, lol.

The belt is from Kohls (I think)...brown boots are from Target as well as the necklace. The bracelet is vintage...and look, I even have a close-up for a change:



Have a great day everyone!

The skirt is a bargain! It looks a tad long, though - could you shorten it a bit? To just at your knee?

Love the bracelet - thanks for the close-up!

lovely skirt! that shade of blue looks so fab on you!

Sal said...

That bracelet is simply lovely. Any idea what kind of stone that is?

Blue and brown are really good together. I really like the colour combination.

I think that blue is your color, it absolutely makes you gorgeous eyes pop!!

Beautiful bracelet, and I love that that blue! WOW great find on the skirt. I just love how when you find something you love, you get it in multiples - I always felt guilty doing that but now I know I'm not alone. It actually makes perfect sense too!

Thanks everyone!

Sheila -- thank you, and yes, I agree, it does look long especially when I saw it in the photo (the beauty of daily pix!) In fact, I often have a problem deciding how long my skirts/dresses should be...I'm just never sure. Got any tips? A rule of thumb?

Kristen -- thanks...I love blue and now that I think about it this totally reminds me of that post you did on wearing one color (http://tinyurl.com/7g6fsx)...though the green lady STILL haunts me, lol.

Sal, thank you! I think the stone really isn't one, I believe it is some sort of glass...but it has a very glowing quality that I love.

Lady D -- thanks so much!

Hillary -- thank you, it was, wasn't it :)

Le Belette..thanx :D I have to admit it's a relatively new combo for me but I love it too.

Shenanigans, thank you so much for the compliment :)

Trace -- thanks! Yup, I guess I am a multiples queen...glad to know *I'm* not alone in that either, lol :D It really does make sense sometimes...it can be hard to find flattering clothes (especially for us curvy girls as you well know) so when I do find something I love if it exists in other colors or patterns that also work in my wardrobe, I gather 'em all up!

Thanks again all!!!
