What I Wore: Navy and Periwinkle
Without a doubt, this has been the coolest, wettest, greyest May in California that I can remember. Ever. I’m still in a sweater most days, sometimes two sweaters. I have some lighter weight pieces on deck that I’ve been wanting to show you. But it’s just been too cold to wear them.
And I’m tired of my sweaters. Most are neutrals; I feel as though I need some color to counteract the gloom. So when I spotted this periwinkle blue version of my favorite sweater-blazer on the rack at J.Crew, it was a slam dunk. I’m almost embarrassed to admit I’ve purchased this piece in four colors over the last couple of years, but I wear them constantly. We finally had a little break in the gloom yesterday, so I was able to get some shots that show the color more accurately.
This color, though. 😍 It’s a favorite, and I think it’s one of my “personal best” colors. I like that this version is deeper and brighter, not a pastel. (It’s more saturated and a little darker than it appears on the J.Crew website.) I’m wearing a size Small. This style is offered up to size 3X. It’s currently 40% off with code WEEKEND.
It’s hard to tell from this image, but these sandals actually have a muted pewter metallic finish. They’re comfortable as heck, too!
Are you still in sweaters? Or have you been able to break out your Spring and Summer clothes yet?
