OOTD: Baby Blue

I was so tempted to call this post ‘Blue Ivy’, just for the traffic of it. Haha. But nah, I’m pretty sane today so Baby blue it is.

Isn’t sky blue or baby blue one of colours that only a few select people can pull off? And I feel that’s because everyone steers clear off soft blue tones. I saw this periwinkle suit at Dorothy Perkins and decided it was going to be my first baby blue suit. It was on a sale so I was felt even further encouraged to give this a go. Results: FANTABULOUS!

Unfortunately I wore this on a rainy day to an art gallery which really is only a few minutes from our flat. (The only reason I overdressed was because I had plans of posing later 😉 ).

I tried real hard and managed to keep away from a bright lip colour because frankly I couldn’t think of a lipstick that wouldn’t clash with this suit.

Are there any colours that you wouldn’t go near?? Tell us!

PS: Oh, hey everyone! This is the bag that I had to stalk that girl in the shop for…Read full story here. Hahaha. Bye folks.

OUTFIT: Blue Collarless Boyfriend Jacket, Blue peg trousers, Carvela mini bag, Black barely there heels

    you look great as always, loving the suit :), the colour i can never go near is bright green like uh huh it just looks horrible on me :(, that’s why i stick to khaki or olive if i wanna wear green.

    Ok, that bag is totally stalker worthy! lol! Periwinkle looks great against your skin tone. I actually just had pedi and used periwinkle on my toes. It’s such a fun colour.

    You look gorgeous!!!! The color is really pretty! I bought a jacket in this baby blue a while back and I’m having the hardest time styling it!! Other than wearing it with something white I’m completely stumped for ideas. I think you could have pulled off a bright color like a Purple with blue undertones. Speaking of purple with blue undertones, I’m deathly afraid of it lol. It’s one of those colors that I love to look at but feel like I can’t pull off. I’ll have to face that fear one day.

    I actually love light blue! I think it’s a very flattering colour, and it looks incredible on you! I love those pants. The tied waist is such a great touch. I usually wear almost any colour haha. Sometimes yellow can look a bit weird on me, but I usually find a way to wear it anyway!
