Blue Curaçao Blossoms

While blue + green may well be my favorite color combination, blue + blue runs a close second. Ethereal, Diane-Keaton-in-Something’s-Gotta-Give ensembles certainly have their charms. As a pale-skinned brunette, however, I find no devil in the deep blue sea—when even vaguely warm weather hits, I look for any excuse to cruise out the door in a tone-on-tone outfit. Though my casual, Rectangle/H-friendly “cascade cardigan” provides a pretty good reason to start walkin,’ it’s my $5 vintage enamel earrings that lead the way.

[Ok, I broke rank with the black boots.]

Now I can’t wear every Etta James hue near my face without a little intervention—wearing navy solo just highlights my undereye circles—but most shades make me look positively, alarmingly-false-advertisingly angelic. Even without Ms Eileen’s magical-fairy lighting. Naturally enough, I’m a repeat offender when it comes to buying blue. But surely there’s no denying that every wolf’s closet needs a variety of sheepish camouflauge?
