Que Bella – I’m so Blue

Lately I’ve been in my standard summer uniform – jersey skirt, tee or tank and flip-flops. It’s comfortable and cool for these hot summer days, and nights. But I did leave the house twice during the week and left the uniform at home.

On Tuesday, The Boy and I had a mother-son dinner date to a restaurant he’s been dying to try. So I put on my Double-Serge Mini in Brilliant Blue, the Silk Indigo Floral Blouse and my new Sydney Patent Sandals in Casablanca Blue.
How perfect does all of this match! The blue in the blouse and the skirt are exact even though they are a few years apart. I have the skirt in this print as well and it is divine.
On Wednesday, I had to visit my local office for the day. The visit was very last minute so I was lucky I had this beautiful old-school-Crew Wild Daisy Dress in Husband’s closet as I didn’t have time to even run upstairs to find an outfit in mine. Alexis featured this in May on the JCA blog as a J Crew of Season’s Past post. I was lucky enough to find it on the JCA blog in a size 8. It’s a beautiful print and a perfect fit! I added my new Sydney Patent Sandals in Neon Azalea. I guess now I have to keep them. I appreciate all the suggestions on how to wear these bright shoes.

Have a Great Day!

    You look so lovely!

    This is one thing J Crew dies VERY well – keeping their colours consistent over several seasons which makes it so much easier to match items! I love the floral blouse especially!

    And yay on the neon shoes! They look amazing with that dress!

    Both outfits are fabulous!! I love the Sydney shoes, but they aren't 10 hour workday shoes. After lunch, they really started to hurt. Nothing I couldn't handle, because I wore them the following day again bc the color and style is so great! But I found the footbed vey flat and not a lot of support/cushion. What do you think? For sale price, I'm happy but I'm glad I'd dint pay FP or even 1st cut sale!

    I totally love the neon azalea shoes with the Wild Daisy dress, the pop of color really elevates the dress to another level! Fabulous!
