Sometimes my blues are cobalt.
I managed to smile for this photo. If I can just remember to do that more often you'd be seeing something truer to the real me. I am either very self conscious in front of a camera or I am concentrating so hard on getting the photo I forget that I am in it. This photo was taken in a rare moment of really good lighting where the true colours are actually showing. In photos below, darker blues turn to black and I suddenly have a sun tan.
Denim, navy and teal blues are also typical in my wardrobe. The vest is navy but the pants are black and in real life, quite distinguishable from each other, unlike in this photo. The boots are also blue.
And I wear blue with black, blue with brown, blue with purple, red and navy is exhilarating, blue and white is fresh.....I wear blue with everything. Wearing it with grey or brown is a definite comfort zone.
Digression: I keep going into the local shoe store looking for blue shoes. Is it too much to ask that somebody make a comfortable T strap or Mary Jane shoe with a stacked heel somewhere around 2.5 inches and make it in a nice bright navy or denim blue colour? Apparently it is too much to ask. And don't get me started on my attempts to buy a good quality oxford shoe in brown. I can't even get a poor quality one. The joys of small town living!
But back to the blues.....I really do like blue with brown.
This is a man's silk shirt . Since it's a rather loose and slouchy top I like it with a skirt that skims over me. Something with a bit of flare at the bottom seems to be more flattering than a straight skirt. This skirt is a lovely dark chocolate brown. I do love chocolate and I have always, ALWAYS loved the colour brown.
I cannot think of any colour I would typically wear that I do not love to pair with blue and I can think of some I don't wear (any sort of yellow) that also look great with it. I happen to really love blue with brown, black or gray and it's probably what I am wearing right now.
