Always with the Blue
Always with the Blue. Never fails. My eyes go straight to royal blue. Just last night I bought a pair of Alexander McQueen sunglasses – they’re royal blue and amazing. I tend to sway towards the royal blues for accent pieces in my wardrobe. Sunglasses, catchy-looking blazers … shoes.
This post, however, is all about this gorgeous knee length blue dress coat. I found her at Macy’s in Pittsburgh. She was on sale. And then on sale again. There was so much scoring in this one shopping trip.
The reason I found this blue-beauty was because I was on a hunt for bold blazers to accent my wardrobe. I’m notorious at work for wearing blazers with everything … jeans, skirts, sweatpants. You name a bottom, I’ve styled a blazer with it. Blazers and marketer’s go hand in hand, no?
I paired the coat with this red, black and you really have to look for it – blue romper. The styling didn’t quite pull out the blue in the romper like I thought it would. There is no proof of it here, but the best part about this romper: it’s and open back. Mmhmmm, yes – I wish you could all see it in person.
The romper is Shopbop, the blazer is from Macy’s, booties are Aldo.
