Black and Blue- One Outfit, Three Ways

Black and Blue Collage


So I gotta be honest. I’m not completely loving all three outfits I put together this week. Part of the reason is that our weekend was spent in Chicago and so I didn’t have a lot of photography time. Which resulted in this status update on Facebook:

Real fashion bloggers take pictures outside, in various poses, looking pensive and reflective with all the proper accessories. Wannabe fashion bloggers shower at 3 after working out at 9. Yell at their hubby to snap a quick pick in their living room. Then quickly change into pajama pants…… #guesswhichoneIam

Someday maybe I will graduate to the big league. But not this week.

Anywho, for the first look, I was inspired by an outfit on Pinterest (that I can’t find for the life of me), to pair black and royal blue together. I think there used to be a rule somewhere that black and blue don’t go together, but I think we’ve discussed fashion rules are meant to be broken.  I love the way this look turned out. It is my favorite of the bunch. I would add a necklace, but I didn’t have anything that looked right.

Black and Blue 1


Shirt: Everlane (best white tees EVER)

Blazer: Target (similar)

Jeans: Old Navy (similar)

Shoes: Target (similar)

The next look is one I frequently pair together. Well the scarf and the jeans. I typically wear it with a gray shirt and, frankly, I think I like that look better. This sweater just isn’t super flattering. Sorry about the blurry headless picture. Trust me. It is better without the head.

Black and Blue 3


Sweater: Gap

Jeans: Old Navy (similar)

Scarf:  Groopdealz. (similar)

Shoes: Target (similar)

I think the lat outfit could be improved with a lighter gray shirt. I do like the blazer with the scarf. Something just seems a little off. Help me readers? What is going on with this one?

    I think a different shirt on the last one–something a little sleeker maybe. And I would wear white. Love my cobalt blue skinnies from old navy. They’re my favorite.

  2. I am a wannabe too. I like the last look a lot!

  3. haha, cracking up at your description of the two kids of bloggers….I am caught somewhere in the middle…ALWAYS photograph wearing what I am ACTUALLY wearing (not sure some of those 50’s tulle skirts and sky high heels are really taking bloggers to the office they work at) ANYWAY…
    Love black and blue…awesome combo….kind of like chocolate brown and black..which growing up I was taught DO NOT match and now it is my favorite combo.
    Best to you.
