SHADES OF BLUE & TBB STYLE LINK-UP


I never really used to love wearing blue, except for the other black; Navy! However, this past year or two, I have really been drawn to shades of blue. So much so, that I'm even toying with the idea of having a shade of it be an accent color in some areas of our new house? As for clothing, it's the vibrant blues that really draws me in!


The sleeves and the flow of this beautiful top or just too cute to pass up and I could not believe that the shade of blue matched these fun and funky Fringed Steve Madden lace up sandals! and the the Rebecca Minkoff "Leo" clutch was a sweet addition since it too matched the pink fringe in the sandals.

Some of these pictures were taken by the most darling ice cream spot in our vacation town called The Cool Spot! While another ice cream shop is our favorite, this one has the cutest flowers and outside decorations!
The sweet little necklace..a gift this past Christmas from the Husband..it is morse code for "I LOVE YOU"



And can we just keep talking about the sandals? Not only were they comfortable but they're just so darn fun, definitely my favorite sandal purchase of the summer!

And it's funny, when I talk about Shades of Blue, J-Lo keeps popping in my mind because I absolutely love that show and I can't wait till it comes back in the Fall! She is one Bad-A#s Detective! Yes, that was totally off-topic but she happens to be one of my favorite fashion icons as well! LOL. Love you Jenny from the Block!

And with this new found love of blue, don't you think mama might need these pointed toe smoking slippers (NO, I do not smoke) for Fall? From Sole Society

  4. I never was a blue person either - and all of a sudden it is becoming the accent color in my remodeled house updates. Those fringed sandals are darling.

  15. I love blue so much!! Fun fact: My mom dressed me in blue for school picture day for K and 1st grade because I have blue eyes, and then when she realized it, I dressed in blue for every school picture until I graduated ha! She had all of my school pictures hanging in our old house and it was so funny to see each blue top!

  23. Gosh! I wish we could just share a closet. I looked at that top AND I love those shoes. You naturally look adorable. Bright blues are such a great color on us blondes. Anytime I wear a bright blue like that my husband loves it and the sad thing is I hardly ever do it. I buy them and then for some strange reason don't wear them. What the heck? I just ordered two dresses from the #NSALE in royal blue as possibilities for a wedding we'll be attending this fall. Fingers crossed. Have a gorgeous day lady-bug!!! XO
