WIW : Besotted with Blue:)

Hi Ladies,

I have worn my new blue boots twice this week:)  Once at work and today for my day off.  I am really happy I allowed my friend to convince me I 'needed' them lol.

Starting from the bottom upwards, I am wearing:

Zara Navy Brogue Ankle Boots
Rockmans Navy Ponte Pants (really leggings)
Valley Girl, Cream tshirt tunic
Zara Navy draped long cardigan
Spiegel Black Leather Jacket

This is a comfortable and warm outfit and perfect for running around in.  It's sunny today (finally) but cold so I popped my faithful Spiegel leather jacket (always think of the lovely Amiable when I wear this) over it all for while I was outdoors.  I draped the navy lapel of the cardigan out over the lapel of the leather jacket and liked the effect.  I think it all looks a bit bulky with the leather jacket but wasn't to bothered because it was warm ;)

So I am wondering.. is navy the new black lol!

For Robyn & Michelle, if you are reading:)
The outfit is made up of varying shades of navy.  The navy brogue style ankle boots come up to the shin and are a little higher at the front than the back.  They are patent with the traditional brogue pattern.  The leggings are also navy, nicely fitted to the leg and a substantial thickness.  The cream tunic has a rounded neckline, is sleeveless and has a hi low hemline, the front being shorter than the back with the shortest point falling at about mid thigh length. The cardigan is about knee length, is navy and has draped lapels that can be worn simply draped, or brought up around the neck and buttoned to create a cross over at the front and a draped cowl neck - I am wearing it draped. The leather jacket is black, has wide fold back lapels and falls at just above mid hip length.

Thanks for looking and your thoughts, suggestions, critique all very welcome.

xxx Deborah

    You are gorgeous in these navy blues, Deborah. I love your layering and the white high-low tunic that brightens the look. The new boots are so pretty!

    I love your new boots Deborah....and maybe Navy can be the new black, or at least one of the new blacks, as you wear black so well.

    I have been enjoying your navy and black mixing, very nice indeed.

    You're a treat to watch in blue! So gorgeous! Love the layering here.....you are Queen Layering, and well on your way to becoming Queen Blue as well!

    Firecracker, there is something pretty about this boots:).

    Kiwigal, blue and black is fast becoming my fave combo. And there is quite is bit of navy around at the moment so that makes it a little easier.

    Maneera, thank you! They feel like very natural colours to layer together.

    Blue suits you as much as black! I like the way you have draped the lapels of the cardi over the jacket.

    I love how you layer your pieces.  You are really an artist.  Lovely.

    I get so excited to see every one of your new outfits! So cohesive and almost predictable on the one hand, and new and unexpected and experimenting on the other. I'm in awe.

    You look stunning as usual Deborah!  And I'm so honored that the jacket makes you think of me.  Mine makes me think of you also - I love the ylf sister hood!

    I love how your red lipstick gives the whole outfit a shot of color.  Very fab!

    Super cute. I love the white and ink accents in the outfit.

    Beautiful, Debs! What a thrill to see you come on over to Team Blue!! There is always room for Queen Black on the Blue bench! :) 

  • Meredith replied 5 years ago

    I particularly like the similarity in tone between the blue and black. Subtle and lovely.

  • Cococat replied 5 years ago

    Great outfit Deborah. I really like the way you layered the leather jacket over a cardi and then over a top (love a Valley Girl bargain too). The navy looks great on you.

  • Lucy replied 5 years ago

    Lovely! I've never liked to mix dark blue and black much, despite its recent popularity, but this makes me rethink...

  • kkards replied 5 years ago

    you are seriously making me think about how to mix navy (about 1/2 my closet) and black (the other half)….

  • dakotacheryl replied 5 years ago

    The white top just makes this outfit pop...LOVE!!
