{Not So} Basic Blues



I love a good monochromatic look – that is no secret to anyone. So, when I started to build my closet with “crossover” pieces (seamlessly maneuvering from day to night), I tried to stick with a few key colors and pairings.

Naturally, the hue I was drawn to time and time again was blue. It has always been a favorite of mine and there is a variation that looks good on everyone. While a light and whimsical mint lightens the mood of some heavy snake skin in the second look, the first look utilizes a pop of cobalt makes the statement in an otherwise black-and-white look.
