{Outfit Inspiration} Navy & Aqua

I’m having a serious love affair with aqua right now….it’s finding its way into my house, on my doors and especially in my closet. (It hasn’t reached my eyelids yet, I’ll let you know if I cross the line and start wearing aqua eyeshadow!) I think it’s a beautiful neutral. You may not think of such a brilliant color as a neutral…but consider a summer sky…and how lovely everything looks against it. You could pair almost any color with aqua, and I’d bet it looks good on just about everyone!

When the ever-inspirational blog, Coco+Kelley, posted about a Hampton’s Wedding Weekend with this as the color scheme:

navy aqua 2 - coco kelly

navy aqua - coco kelly

I knew exactly how I’d recreate it:


I’d like to be buried in these shoes please (preferably 60 years from now!) And no, I didn’t ride a horse in. Yes, I’m just bowlegged.

Outfit deets: cardijcrew, wrap ruffle dress – f21, bangle – old navy, shooznordstroms rack
