black & blue



Like black and brown (which I have come to like), I was never a real big fan of black and blue, but hey, we can all change! This was a traveling outfit on a chilly day that had to see me through several antique malls and some vintage shops. I'm a little finicky when it come to dressing for vintage hunting, I like to wear skirts but then I mostly wear skirts...so what am I even saying. Same with hair, it has to be out of the way, but then hey, I always like my hair out of the way. But all in all this outfit was so dang comfortable I wish I could wear it again and again. I wish I could find a blushy-nude chambray shirt, is that even possible? There might be a short little haircut on the horizon, we shall see.

Love this look, especially with the little black oxfords. totally comfortable and stylin'- I have a hard time with blue, but I'm loving the chambray and somehow black is the easiest way to make it work!

Your comment about wanting a blush-colored chambray shirt made me think of these two... http://www.madewell.com/madewell_category/SHIRTSTOPS/chambraydenim/PRDOVR~40656/40656.jsp (more blush) and http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=5039&vid=1&pid=832767&scid=832767032 (more nude).

I like this outfit, too! It looks perfectly comfortable for a day of treasure hunting.

oh my goodness - you are certainly a lady, through and through. :) I've been in love with this color combination for a few seasons - probably because it was considered "taboo". Especially love a black and navy blue color combo.

Loving the hair! (And, the possibility of a hair cut in the future? You are definitely more daring than me.) :)

I'm going to my closet now to match up some black and blue... the jewelry is to die for!
Thanks for the inspiration! xoxo Elizabeth
