Does anyone else like blue as much as I do?! I’ve illustrated the point with pieces from Whistles, Jigsaw, Boden, Hush and GAP

I have friend who refers to her Mother in Law’s house as “The land of brown.” Everything in it from the carpets, to the crockery, to the candlewick bedspread, are brown.

I’ve decided that my wardrobe should be re-named “The wardrobe of blue” because so many things in it are blue.  My love of navy arose many, many years ago – as did my dislike of brown (other than pieces that are in leather) – I blame the 70’s!

As to other shades of blue, I remember buying a pale blue top from Whistles in 1998 on a hot weekend to Leeds, just days before I found out that I was pregnant with number one. That explained the weird feeling that I had all weekend! I didn’t possess that many clothes then and I loved that top. It was worn and washed until it went frilly around the bottom.

Anyway, these are a few of my favourite blue things at the moment. First off, there’s the Lisa dress from Hush (£60). It’s just arrived and I have yet to try it on but that day will come soon. I fear that it won’t look quite the same as it does on the lady below!

I treated myself to this silk front sweater from Jigsaw (£89) with my Mother’s Day Gift Card (it’s amazing how far that seems to be going!) I’m really looking forward to wearing this. Just need somewhere to go now…

 

Ah, now I have my eye on these – the geo print trousers from Jigsaw (£89). I think that they will work well on my hols with my Boden sparkly sandals and I fancy some wide legged trousers for a wardrobe freshen up.

Eh, you can’t beat a bit of navy and when the sun comes out and the legs are a little less blue than they are now (blue legs are one thing I’m not so fond of) this navy tube skirt from Whistles (£55) will be good to go.

For a sunny day, this blue Chambray dress from Cos (£69) with its 60’s neckline and neat fitted shape will be a good backdrop to lots of different accessories.

This sweatshirt top from GAP (£19.99) is also a current favourite and now you can start to see what I mean. There’s a lot of blue going on right now.

 

For a beach cover up, the Birkby Liberty print dress from Jack Wills  will come into its own. By the time I finally ended up with the right size, it had been reduced to £54, down from £79 – so it was worth the wait.

Over the years I’ve flirted with lots of different colours. We all know that I have a penchant for pink, am mad about metallics, go crazy for coral, am nuts about neon and and I love lilac – see I’m in lilac here (it’s not blue)….

…but I always come back to blue.  Some colours make me feel positively unsettled. We once moved into a house where the living room was decorated in a shade of terracotta. Needless to say it was soon changed – to duck egg blue.  I just couldn’t sit in it. Other colours make me look like my days are numbered, or in this case, up completely. (Not that I don’t love these cropped cashmere cardis from Boden (£89) and they do have some great colours – but you get my drift.)

Currently I have my eye on these Liberty print Nike trainers from Office (£74.99) and guess what, they’re blue.

But then I also really, really, like these printed shorts from GAP – see, no blue! Maybe all is not lost. However on many other levels, it so seriously could be (aged 43, three children, legs on show hmmmm)! Maybe I’ll just wear them when it’s boiling hot and blame it on sunstroke….

..or maybe I’ll just buy some in blue.

    I must admit I am a huge fan of blue clothes too…i think half my wardrobe maybe navy, such a safe flattering colour. Love those gap floral shorts though they are fab and the Jack Wills dress is great! X

    Yes! it wasn't until I created my blog & started doing some OOTD posts that I realised how much blue I own. Whilst I do like to add in other colours I think I just find blue suits me more than other colours do. I love those geo print Jigsaw trousers x
