As we start to think about Fall 2017 a quote comes to mind! A quote from Monsieur Christian Dior -, “Among all colors, navy blue is the only one which can ever compete with black, it has all the same qualities,”
Maria Grazia Chirui — who is the designer for the House of Dior certainly took those words to heart when she dyed her runway every shade of the mystifying color for her Fall line.
Pantone has listed two blues in the colors for this fall!
PANTONE 19-4029 Navy Peony
A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral.
PANTONE 17-4041 Marina
Cool with an enhanced vitality, Marina is the only truly cool color in the fall palette that brings with it freshness and brightness.
So, our post today from the Lowcountry and the beach centers around our outfits featuring shades of the glorious blue hue!! More than that- our lunch box even matches- so we threw that in there too!
Michelle chose two blues straight from the pantone top 10 for her fashion statement on the runway, oops…. hallway today! The powder blue skirt from United Colors of Benetton has been such a soft place to land for Michelle. It fits to a “T”, it is professional, and it is feminine. When she was deliberating on what to pair with it, she thought about her normal color combo with it and that is black and white. So, instead of the norm, Michelle chose a navy blue lace peplum top that buttons up the back.
The top added to the outfits soft feminine side while adding some dimension with the lace overlay. This top also accentuates the waist, as most peplum tops do. For shoes, she contemplated on her navy sling backs, but finally decided on a more neutral shoe in order for the outfit to steal the show.
Have you ever bought your daughter a piece of jewelry and thought to yourself, I might need to borrow that one day? Well, today Michelle did just that! Her bedazzled medallion on the end of her necklas is full of blues, and guess who it belonged to? Her precious Veda!
Susie is still vacationing at the shore! She is embracing her caftan love and having fun wearing them each day! Her biggest challenges so far have been frizzy hair and trying to get decent pictures with the beach breeze/ gale wreaking havoc with said hair and clothing!!
Her caftan for today is so soft and comfy! The pattern is a wonderful floral with many shades of blue, mauve and pink and a white background. It is a perfect blend of such beautiful colors!
Susie kept her accessories simple. Blue earrings and a blue and white necklace provide just the right contrast to the v-neck! Her straw purse is a thrift buy for $4.99 from the beach. Susie loves the beautiful purse as it pulls out some of the colors from the floral!
The various shades of blue in her caftan span the spectrum!!
From the colors of the ocean to the beauty of our sky, nature provides a wide range of blue hues from which our designers can choose to weave into their creations!!
Simply blue- tiful!!!!💙💙💙
