Blue Crush

You may recognize this shirt - I have it in white. You should know by now that I will buy items in multiples more often than not. It's a problem. Or it's a solution, depending on how you look at it.

Top - eloquii / Ankle pants - Lane Bryant / Sandals - Bandolino (via

It's such an easy, flattering top - a perfect piece to hide in when the body flaws are acting up. And the vibrant cobalt blue seems to stop people in their tracks and distract them from said flaws as well. Ah, the powers of redirection.

Belt - The Limited / Ring - Ruche / Necklace - Banana Republic / Earrings - Maurices

An animal print belt was the winner when I first wore the top in white, so I thought I'd follow suit and pair another animal print belt with this one. (Yep, I even have multiples of animal print belts.) This top was made to be belted, pure and simple.

Handbag - "City Girl Satchel" via Ruche

Oddly enough, I think my bag might be the real star of this post. I simply had to have it, especially since it would probably be my only mint item from the mint-obsessed trends of spring. (I'm late to that party, I know.) It was basically an accident that made me decide to wear the bag with the outfit, though - as in, running out the door and need to grab one of my zillion bags hanging off the dining chair; the newest one spoke the loudest. But the mint and cobalt play off each other in really unexpected ways - and I totally love it. So then I had to throw in a few other minty touches - ring, manicure - to seal the deal.

But I sure am loving myself in this shade of blue, I have to say...


  1. Do you ever have a bad hair day? Serious. Your hair always looks magnificent!

  2. I LOVE this top. I bought the white one when you highlighted it in one of your other postings. and it's one of my favorite tops. But after you showed the blue one.. I knew I had to get it. I just bought it and it was on sale! Yay me! xoxoxo
