Cobalt Blue & Stylish Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday Dolls! 

Lately I've been obsessing over cobalt blue! I went on a major shopping spree a couple of weeks back for my cousins wedding in Dallas, and ended up with 4 cobalt blue dresses! It didn't hit me until I went to hang them up in my OCD color coordinated closet and they all went into the same section ... don't know which is more embarrassing, a color coordinated closet or that I indeed bought 4 dresses the same exact color in one shopping trip!

This was initially one of those stated dresses I bought for the wedding. I adore the 3/4 length sleeves and how flattering the fit and flare style is. The small horizontal lines added texture to the dress and felt amazing to rub my hand up and down my arm (guilty as charged, because y'all know I did that all day long!)

I didn't end up wearing it to the wedding (because let's be honest, I would have died in the Texas heat y'all!) but I did wear it to a work meeting last week and got loads of compliments. Best of all, it was a steal for less than $25 from Forever 21!

When it came to accessorizing this beauty, I kept it very simple. Normally I love to layer necklaces, add a watch to literally every outfit and pair with statement earrings on top of it all but honestly, this dress speaks for itself.

I added a waist belt to break up all of the blue and tie in my nude/rose gold heels. The statement earrings matched so perfectly, I had to showcase them by putting my hair up and letting them be the star of the show!
If you know me, you know that I'm a sucker for a good arm party. Most people feel naked without their phone and while I too am one of those people, if my left wrist isn't stacked and my right wrist doesn't have a hair tie, my whole day is caught off balance. 

You gals get it, hair ties are an essential wrist accessory and you never need it until the one time you do and your trusty rubber band isn't there ... whomp whomp!
Ladies, these heels are EVERYTHING! The heel is a perfect 3 1/2 inch height so you don't feel like you're going to break your neck as you walk around. The cut out's are on trend along with the textured leather and metallic rose gold heel. My favorite part is the ankle support - I truly feel like I could run a mile in these puppies. 

Shout out to my blogger bud, Adri from Adri Lately for helping convince me these bad boys needed to be purchased. I don't even know why I was contemplating now!

  1. The funny thing about blogging is that you end up telling people all the quirky things you don't want to admit to yourself. Like a colour co-ordinated closet, a cobalt shopping spree. I am having trouble seeing a problem with either of these confessions though. And if the other three are as cute as this one, I'd say you did quite well. Thanks so much for hosting.
