Blue State

2010 November 3

This is what I wore yesterday. Normally, I wear brown boots with this navy blue floral dress, but yesterday, I was feeling a little more adventurous and decided to try out the new trend of mixing navy blue and black. Though this color combo is traditionally considered a fashion faux-pas, I found that it worked pretty well. If it’s good enough for the police, it’s good enough for me. (Speaking of police, sidenote: we finished watching Season 1 of The Wire last night and OMG talk about an amazing show. It’s so smart and intricate and really makes you work to understand, but I love the depth of the characters and the situations. Also, I had nightmares all last night about intense drug wars. Kinda scary.)

Dress: Swapped; Cardigan & Belt: H & M; Scarf: Thrifted from Beacon’s Closet; Tights: We Love Colors; Boots: Rampage

I took this navy floral dress and paired it with my new navy tights, a blue cardigan, and a black belt and boots. What do you think? Does it work?

Also, a close-up for my new glasses! The Coltons were the winners–sorry guys, I just liked them too much. I really love them, but they are a bit too heavy for me and are constantly sliding down my nose. Anyone have any tips on how to fix that??

    You look so cute! I think that all the navy (and other beautiful shades of blue) is such a nice look. You look professional, but the print on the dress is also really whimsical and fun

    Love the navy & black, and I say pretty much anything goes with color combos nowadays. When I was in high school *cough, in the 90s, cough*, I wouldn’t have been caught dead mixing brown and black, but now I love it!

    Love it! The ombre scarf is an especially nice touch. Also love the new specs! Try taking them to an optometry shop and seeing if they can tighten the screws on the sides–that might help them fit a bit more snugly.

    Love the whole look, very chic. Also the glasses are great, very NYC.

    Love the blue and black combo! I used to believe it was a fashion faux-pas, too, but I’ve come to find that the two colors can go together quite well. I also think your glasses look great!
