Blue

I never wear royal blue. 

I’m not entirely sure why. When I walked up to shoot with my friend Cassandra today she exclaimed “oh, that’s such a great color on you!” I was kind of caught off guard.

“This color? Really!?”

I think I typically avoid it because it makes me think of my sister’s 90’s-tastic, satin, puffy-sleeved, royal blue prom dress that I used to parade around the house in when I was 7. 

But when I was asked to team up with Piperlime, one of my favorite websites, I thought, there’s no better time to rock the color. There was something about the way the blue of this dress matches the blue of this coat perfectly. And the way it went from business casual to cheeky and darling with the addition some lacy socks (my favorite accessory these days). But the best part? These shoes

Yes. They’re happening. And they’re perfect

Which falls in line nicely with the rest of Piperlime’s new …everything? I’m drooling over this blouse, skirt, sweater, and romper (just to name a few). Shop all my favorites below!
