Hope you all had a great weekend! It's back to a 5-day week after having two 4-days weeks in a row...bracing myself! At least the snow on the ground melted overnight due to a rain storm that came through. Rain=warmer temperatures too which I definitely won't complain about! It's short lived though...we'll be back in the 20's in a few days it looks like. All well. It'll be nice while it lasts!
A few Sundays ago I pulled out my Corded Dots skirt from last winter and decided to try pairing it with a bolder version of a color I had paired with it before. Last year I remember wearing a seafoam green cardi with it...this time I went for teal. Same basic color family, just brighter and bolder.

I liked how it turned out with the bolder color up top! Of course, I haven't met a bold color I don't like, so I may be bias. =)
So I am on the hunt...I'm in need of a wedding guest outfit! My little brother is getting married in about a month and a half and I need a dress! Since I'm a member of the groom's family I'm trying to stick to the wedding colors so we all look somewhat cohesive in pictures. I don't need to be totally literal and only wear those two colors, but I try to find something that at least has a little of them in it. The colors they chose are cobalt blue and pale yellow. I'm afraid with my winter white pale skin, pale yellow will wash me out completely so I've been focusing on looking for something more on the cobalt blue side.
The wedding is in March in Phoenix, Arizona so the weather should be pretty decent. My brother-in-law got married in March in Arizona a few years back and I wore a dress, cardigan, bare legs and heels and was perfectly comfortable. So I'm looking for something similar. When looking for a dress for weddings I always like to get something I'll be able to easily include into my regular wardrobe and wear again. There's nothing worse than finding a great dress that you wear once, and then hang it up for good. My best friend found the cutest dress on sale (it's only $60 down from $198 and I found a promo code for free shipping!!!) at Boden a while back and after hearing she liked it, I decided to go ahead and order the colorway that was more appropriate for the color scheme I'm looking for.
So I know the "yellow" part of the flowers on this dress are more orange looking than yellow, but that's ok. It's the cobalt blue in the center of the flowers that I'm focusing on. I'm thinking I can get away with this if I pair it with a cute pair of cobalt blue heels and fun jewelry. Hopefully the dress fits well or it's back to the drawing board!
Here's a few shoe possibilities I've found so far:
Any favorites? Do you own any of these? Which would you go with?
Or have you seen another cute pair of cobalt blue heels somewhere I must know about? Do tell!!!
Have a great day!
