No, this won't be a sad post about how depressing Winter can be (although it really can be, right?) This is about all the wonderful things I am loving in BLUE. I am Crazy for Cobalt! Nutty for Navy! Itchin for Indigo!

Carrie's Apartment in Sex and the City[/caption]
My obsession with blue begins with the transformation Carrie's apartment makes in the first Sex and the City movie when she paints the entire space BLUE. I had to keep rewinding to take it all in, it's so luxurious! I love that the whole space is the same colour - this really makes a statement. The colour used is Electric Blue
by Benjamin Moore. The paint chip has been hanging in my front hall for weeks but I have decided yet if it will work...we will see!
These luxury flats first came onto my radar when they were featured on Oprah’s Favourite Things - Tieks
. She showed them in Fuchsia which I adored but I went with California Navy to be a bit safer. The turquoise sole is a signature element of Tieks. I can’t wait for spring to get here so I can wear them out…they are so comfy and soft. Love them!
So cute! These are from Joe Fresh
…they would be so adorable on my girls I think they might both need a pair. They come in red as well. I’ve resisted them once now but I’m at the grocery store at least twice a week – I’m guaranteed to break down and buy them soon!
Three of my favourite trends are covered off in this one: blue & black, stripes, and chunky infinity scarves! This is Jessica Quirk from What I Wore
. She documents her amazing style one day at a time. I am hooked on seeing what she wears next! Honestly, I secretly want to be her although even if I had her wardrobe and style, I don’t have anywhere to go!
I spied these gorgeous cobalt studs on Etsy in the Botny
shop by Dana Holscher. Her shop is the 'home of hand drawn earrings' which combines two of my favourite things: art supplies and jewellery! This pair was coloured with Ultramarine Blue. Lovely!
These are my favourite blues in the studio these days: Cobalt Teal & Anthraquinone Blue. Stay tuned to see what comes out of these wonderful BLUES…
Now enough with the winter blues, bring on SPRING!
