I can’t get enough! Of cobalt, that is. Last year, I was all about turquoise and teal during the summer and this year I’m rocking cobalt and navy all through the fall. It’s all because of my dad. He’s loved cobalt for as long as I can remember, so I would bring home little gifts for him in that beautiful blue. As I’ve gotten older, I tend to make less dollar-store purchases (got him some wine glasses in cobalt once in middle school), and I’ve begun to use my style to “pay tribute” to his love for the color.
A couple months back, I received these fantastic blue slides from AMI Clubwear (my go-to place for shoes). I was crazy about the color and the style (and the price tag – only $13), but I had no clue how to style them. They sat forlorn on my shoe shelf and I was so sad every time I passed them because they were just begging to be worn! Then two weeks ago, I went to get my nails done. I was wearing a mustard sweater (seen here) and for some reason, the only color that was standing out to me to put on my nails was – you guessed it – cobalt. I couldn’t get over how gorgeous the blue was and I knew I needed to bring more of it into my life.
The same shopping trip on which I found a fantastic Beetlejuice-esque blouse (that I also wore as a referee for two Halloween parties this past weekend), I picked up this stunning sweater! It’s the exact same style – and price – as the mustard one I mentioned above, and my love for the color is so intense. Fun facts about life: this sweater is only $13 and comes in eight colors! I now own three of those eight, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I succumbed to the other five as well at some point. I just can’t resist a great price and a versatile piece.
With my slides, nails, and sweater, I knew I had to throw together a cobalt-centered outfit to share with you babes. I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I received on this outfit while shooting it and for the rest of the day while I was out running errands. Everyone was shocked when I told them the price points, and I was reminded once again that style does not have to cost a pretty penny. I’ll be finding lots of ways to style this sweater for the rest of the cold-weather months, and you can be sure you’ll see these slides again too! Here’s to cobalt!
