Everyone Has A Blue Period

the clothes horse, fashion, style, orange and blue, fae wreath, floral headpiece, autumn crown, navy dress, orange tights, seychelles booties, retro, redheadI wore this outfit while I was in NYC, including the tights which I bought in the evening as the temperatures dropped and my legs got chilly! I liked the color combination so much I decided to repeat it; although I did end up switching the shoes so there is some variation. The tights never made it into a photograph that day, so suppose I'm not being too boring by featuring the same outfit today. The look sums up a lot of my inspirations for fall: interesting color combinations, saturated hues, militaristic details, and as always, headpieces!

I've said this many times, but I'm going to repeat it once again: blue is my favorite color. I'm enjoying it so much at the moment I'm going to have a "blue period." The goal will be to build every outfit this week around the color blue...which shouldn't be hard considering how blue and black are the dominant colors in my wardrobe!

  4. Love these colors! That's a beautiful shade of blue and love the contrast with the red tights:)

  5. I love that you used very saturated hues of complementary colours instead of doing something monochromatic, though I know you'd rock something amazing in the same colour family. Royal blue is such an intense, yet under worn colour that most people need to embrace.

    These colours compliment your beautiful, milky complexion nicely. And of course, that wreath tops off the outfit. I always love the organic details you put into either your photos or your outfit.

    It's a nice contrast against the cement, man-made, inorganic backdrop.

    And yes, the draped/ruffles at the collar are simply delightful.

  19. @Hugs and Fishes, nope! It actually has more to do with the history of the color blue--and I've not always been a redhead! ;)

  30. My "blue period" was at the age of fourteen. I painted my completely room blue (blue walls, blue floor) and I had so many blue clothes. Now I'm in a purple period..it's also a variation of blue..not a big step I think..haha.
    Great colours. Love blue and red together.

  47. How is the fit of that dress? Does it run big or small?

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is such a pretty dress, and I love it with those shoes

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Anonymous 8:41PM, it runs true to size. There is a good amount of stretch to the material, but it does buckle some around the button holes.

  51. I have to say, your blue period is far less depressing and far more chic than any other one's I've seen lately ;)

    The headpiece looks beautiful, especially with your hair.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love your headpiece. It's perfect for autumn.

    ReplyDelete
