The cobalt blues

Blue is one of my favorite colors to wear.  There are a lot of beautiful shades in the shops now
 since two blues, Riverside and Airy Blue are in the Pantone color picks for Fall/Winter.
  This bright shade is called cobalt or royal.  The Spring 2017 Pantone version is called Lapis. Whatever it's name for the season, it is a wardrobe staple for me!

First, a long cobalt blue cardigan over my Deco inspired starburst print blouse, 
with a taupe pencil skirt.  Warm Taupe is also a Pantone color for Fall.
  However, this skirt was purchased five years ago.

Worn with a neutral metallic tassel clutch, faux snakeskin pumps,
 and a modern design collar necklace.

Next, a bright cobalt mock neck shift dress 
with a black and white graphic flower print blouse worn over it.

A metallic quilted chain strap bag, shiny metal cuff bracelet, 
and my favorite cross strap heels finish the look.

Full on cobalt-it's a lot of blue!  Short sleeve lace fit and flare party dress

with peep toe bow heels and my 3-D geometric box bag.
Simple silver tone bracelet and black and silver tone belt to finish.
