I Am Blue, So Very Blue

While attempting to be proactive and complete my Philosophy homework early this week, I found myself falling into the pit of procrastination. I have ADD when it comes to doing school work, bright shiny objects aka- My Glamour Magazine that sat on my end table with the promise of showing me 957 Fall Outfits!!

Truth be told, I don’t want to talk about fall just yet. It’s only the beginning of August folks, lets not rush it! For two weeks I put off scouring the pages to see what “Fall” will have in store for me. Well I had to make a decision, read “The Letter from Birmingham Jail” or come face to face with the reality that cooler weather is in my future and I need to know how to dress for it. Priorities, my friends, Priorities! Don’t judge me.

I am pleased to find that summer trends will carry over into next season. Florals, for example, can still be a wardrobe staple when paired with darker back drops and accessories. Yay!

I was over the moon when I turned the page and saw head to toe Cobalt Blue! I just wore that on Monday! Boo yah- who is ready for Fall? This girl!

A few posts ago I shared a photo of Sandra Bullock in a blue ensemble here in an attempt to copycat the look:

PS- I did read “The Letter from Birmingham Jail” it was rather captivating actually. Martin Luther Kung Jr. was an amazing writer and passionate advocate.

See- I do have my priorities straight, just not always in the proper order 😉

Monochromatic: Celebrity Look

I was inspired by Sandra Bullock at the “Heat” photo call in Sydney. She looks stunning in a head to toe Cobalt Blue, Alberta Ferretti ensemble. It’s no secret that I have an obsession with Cobalt and wearing an entire outfit dedicated to my fav color- Genius! I’ll be on the hunt for a similar outfit without the designer price tag.

How darling is the quirky flamingo necklace? I love it, a conversation piece added to what could be considered a basic outfit add edge with gladiator caged heels.
