FABruary Style Challenge - Be Blue

What a happy coincidence: today's Style Challenge was "Be Blue" - if you click on the link you can read Imogen's thoughts on the subject and see how she splits blues into warmer and cooler shades of blue.  In the dim and distant past when I had a colour analysis and was told that I was a "winter", I wore lots of cooler blues.  However I now find that warmer tones suit me best, so either the original analysis was wrong or my ageing skin has suddenly become warmer! It may of course be because I live in a sunny climate now and my freckles are showing up more.

Anyway, back to the happy coincidence: as well as the theme for today's Style Challenge being blue, my Personal Day today is 5, which is also blue.  I got quite carried away when getting dressed and I am wearing blue underwear (don't worry, I'm not going to post a photo of me in my undies!) as well as a blue top and navy blue jeans.  I was about to put on my grey and blue trainers when I suddenly remembered the Valentine's challenge and realised that I needed to wear some red too. Spot the touches of red in today's outfit.

Looking at my outfit with a more critical eye, I am wondering if I got too carried away by the idea of wearing all blue and should have chosen different bottoms.  The top is a warm shade and the jeans are a cool tone - what do you think? If only I possessed jeans or trousers in a warmer shade of blue that blended with the top, it would  have had the added benefit of making me look taller and slimmer!


  1. I think these look fine together, and I love the red shoes!

    That shade of aqua looks lovely on you :} Very pretty!

  2. Thanks for your reassurance: I tend to assume that navy jeans will go with everything anyway! I am gradually moving away from black, as I know it's not a great look for most over 60s, so it's fun discovering new colours that look better on me such as aqua and coral.
