Electric Blues

How

After a few days (more like weeks) of searching for my cobalt mini-skirt I finally came across it ... I knew I didn't toss out this ruffled goodness, which would have meant donated nonetheless, not actually thrown away. 

Rest assured, I found it in my croc-tote bag nicely folded under a graphic Tee! Hmm, don't ask! I was also excited to don more of this electric hue because I have not worn much of it lately. I truly adore cobalt!

To me cobalt is one of those daring colours that you either love or don't, is there really any grey area per se, well, not in my wardrobe! I decided to take it easy with my outfit by minimal styling. Sometimes all a girl needs is a great eyeliner and a favourite lip tint. 

Do you know that feeling you get when you're fully fuelled and ready to take on the month, the week, okay, maybe let's just start with the day! I've just tackled loads of tasks, pencilled in new projects, and awaiting to attend a few fall events.

Of course, with a comfortable pullover knit and a ruffled mini-skirt it's quite easy to achieve daytime fashion electricity when you're wearing this type of blue. Whether the day is bright or dim I promise you nothing will matter, because I am wearing one of my favourite colours and full of happiness!

How to wear cobalt fashion
    

Be Bold. Be Daring. Dress Happy.


What's your favourite colour? Are you happily wearing your style today?

  7. I like cobalt blue but I think I don't own too many items in that shade.. unfortunately of course. anyway, your look is bold but classy. a very nice one in my opinion.
    I myself don't have only one favourite colour. I like way too many! for an example today I'm wearing a red lace peplum top and a pair of acid wash skinny jeans.
