Something Blue! Mirror Mirror – May 1 Vol I

No doubt, blue is such a charming color! As a light shade, it screams cool…as a medium hue, it looks mesmerising…and as a dark tint, it exudes classic elegance. Blues are popular year round colors for professional women. Whether you are into monochromatic, color blocking, bold or subtle color styling themes, blue is THE color to explore with. Listed below are ways you can style blues:

  • Monochrome – cobalt blue + navy
  • Color block – cobalt blue + green
  • Bold – navy + coral/orange
  • Subtle – pale blue + gray

In an attempt to add some spring magic to my work style, I decided to go vibrant with blue and florals this week. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because although I wear florals and navy blue frequently, I rarely meddle with deep blue colors. But I have to say that I was pleased with how the outfit turned out 😀 . Zara has loads of chic and affordable separates to create your blue inspired styles this spring.

I’ve included links to available items in the pictures below (highlighted in red).

Don’t you just love this vivid blue skirt in the picture (above). I didn’t buy it from a store. I actually made it with the help of my mum during my ‘learning’ how to sew phase, which didn’t last long…lol. I didn’t have the drive and concentration to pursue sewing as a passion. You have to give it up to seamstresses/ tailors…they have a remarkable level of focus.

Yeah…I couldn’t help but capture ‘a make it twirl shot’ with this skirt…lol.

BTW…eyelet wide waist belts are in style this spring. The eyelet inspired belts have a casual feel to them so I wouldn’t wear them to the office. But I do like styling oversized blouses with sleek structured belts to work.

I’m a project manager by day and a fashionista/style enthusiast always. I have a diverse range of contradictory interests…fashion vs activism, ice cream cake vs spinach salad…but I love & proudly embrace them all.
