Color Crush: Cobalt

NOTE: This post was UPDATED with current shopping links on 1/11/15!!

I’m totally crushing on cobalt right now. Let’s be honest, I always love cobalt. It’s such a stunning color, and it truly looks fabulous on anyone. Whether you’re fair and blonde or olive-skinned with dark hair or somewhere in between, cobalt makes a tremendous fashion statement.

When I was in White House Black Market looking for a date night outfit, cobalt was everywhere, and that experience was the impetus for this post. I wanted to buy everything!

I came up with a collection of fun clothes and accessories in cobalt to whet your appetite!

  1. I am actually wearing cobalt today ! Love it —

    PS and BTW the Dooney and Bourke Leather Zip Satchel was recently available on QVC in the blue color – I have not checked today, but it is possible it’s still in stock there.
