What I'm Wearing: A Cobalt Career

Jewel tones have been back in a big way in recent years and for good reason. They look fabulous on everyone and always make a beautiful statement. One of my favorite jewel inspired colors is bright cobalt. It always catches my eye in stores, I can't explain it but I am consistently drawn to it. So when I was in New York & Company the other day I couldn't pass up this basic yet unique cobalt top. I realize this outfit isn't particularly mind-blowing but I wanted to show off one of my favorite colors to wear.

Do you love this color as much as I do?


  1. LOVE the color. And I always tell people "wear jewel tones!" because just like you said, they look great on everyone.

  2. You look great in cobalt, it's one of my favorite colors too! Love your clutch and textured skirt, they are a perfect addition to the bright blue top!

  3. I looove cobalt, I just featured a cobalt nail lacquer OPI Blue My Mind. I'm also loving your clutch!

    To answer your question about a dark red, I'm not sure how dark you want to go but for an almost black red I like 'OPI Black Cherry Chutney'. For a more saturated true red 'Nicole by OPI I Love You Cherry Much' was just released. I can do posts on those if you would like to see them. I hope that helps :)

  4. Thank you all for your kind compliments.

    And thank you Lacquer Factor for the recommendations. :) I just haven't found the dark red I wanted yet!


Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
