How to wear sky blue

How to wear sky blue

I love pale blue all year round but especially for spring/summer. If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know that I often wear this colour. It reminds me of the sky. Even when covered by clouds the blue sky is always there.

The cashmere sweater I am wearing above is the Audrey scoop neck jumper by Winser London. One of my favourite brands. I like to feature them on this blog as their fabrics are of the highest quality. Their cashmere is divine. If you prefer a long sleeve they do offer the Audrey cashmere belted cardigan in the Chambray blue. Definitely on my wish list. Alternatively their boyfriend longline V neck. 

Sky blue for spring

I have teamed the sweater with the Winser London wide leg crepe jersey trousers (they are washable) in french navy. In the above image I have slung a cashmere pashmina over my shoulders. I bought this one whilst visiting India about 10 years ago (similar) Grey glass bead necklace bought in France a few years ago. (Similar)

Blue cape for spring

It was very windy and chilly the day of the photo shoot so I was very grateful to wrap my blue chambray Winser London reversible cape round my shoulders. This cape has been in my wardrobe for a couple of years. See how I wore it in March last year. I wear it all year round. It is particularly useful in the summer months over a cotton dress.

    You always look beautiful and you are correct, that color is perfect. I think I will have to find something for Spring and Summer in that color. I really do enjoy your blog….keep up the good work!

    I LOVE that colour! I had a cotton summer dress that colour in my late 20s and I always felt happy when I wore it! So summery.

    As usual thank you for all your lovely comments. I am totally in love with this colour as well as pastel pink which I will be writing about soon.

    That shade of blue is gorgeous on you!

    What a beautiful backdrop for your photos. I’m determined to try to find some more interesting and beautiful spots to take photos for my Fashion Friday posts.

    These colors are beyond perfect on you. I’m quite jealous. That particular shade of blue does absolutely nothing for me — “absolument rien du tout.”

    I wanted to leave a comment on your current post about what you wore on the beach, but couldn’t quite find the right link to do so, so I’ll leave it here. That white linen outfit is so lovely, as are the poses, the background and the embellishment on the top with the turquoise necklace. But, my dear, I have to say the hat really does it for me. You look beautiful in it. No surprise there, as you wear hats so well.

    Lovely post.

    I love the gray beads with the blue. I also love that I already own gray beads and can now “copy” your style. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love to hear from you please leave a comment
