Monday Blues

The Monday Blues are all too real this week.  April Showers will do that to a girl, I guess.  Luckily the other kind of “Monday Blues”, aka the kind that you wear, happens to be one of my favorite things ever.  It’s also fair too easy for me to do, seeing as my closet is about 70% blue, 30% every-other-color-in-the-rainbow.  I love pairing different shades of blue together in the same outfit (last done here), as long as the shades are different enough it can make for such a chic look.  I always try to choose varying textures in addition to a light/dark combo, and then pick an accessory that pops, like these silver oxfords.  I’m totally obsessed with the eyelet pattern on this LOFT skirt, and I’ve seen it popping up all over the place this spring, including this gorgeous J.Crew dress.  Having eyelet patterns available everywhere I turn is basically my fashion dream come true.  Anything with lace, eyelet, or embroidered details, you can sign me up for ASAP!
