the blues

theblues1

A bright blue has always been one of my favorite colors to wear. As a blonde, it has always suited me but ever since moving to New York, more often than not I end up in ensembles like this or this. With the change in seasons I think it is high time I start injecting more color into my wardrobe. (I rounded up some of the best blue pieces out there below if you’re in the market!)

This dress is actually a bit big on me but given my weight can fluctuate (some more on that here) I’m holding onto it. Normally I don’t make such bold pairing decisions such as a blue dress with blue shoes, but I kind of loved how happy the look was. Just what you need on a gray day right? I’ll tell you one thing though…I sure did stick out in a sea of black and gray on my way to the office. Not to mention the pop of leopard…I sure was feeling adventurous I guess!

Speaking of adventure, as you read this I am in flight to Dallas! I’m attending a blogging conference for the first time so naturally I’m feeling anxious, excited and, if I’m being honest… overwhelmed. But it’ll be so nice to catch up with some of my blogging friends, meet many new ones and learn new skills while meeting with some brands.

And in other exciting news…my new site (sneak peek here) is supposed to launch next week! We’re planning the install for Monday/Tuesday and if all goes well, I’ll be unveiling the new wit & whimsy on Wednesday. Bear with me as we get there but I did want to provide a head’s up! I cannot WAIT to share the new site with you!!

Outfit Details:

Blue Dress (c/o Shoptiques)
