Color Rotation - Blue

Dress: swapped
Bolero: Ann Taylor
Belt: Banana Republic
Booties: Aldo
Earrings: gift from sister-in-law

Another day of the color rotation, and what might be my favorite outfit of the month. Clearly, this is me rocking the blue.

I might have been a touch overdressed for teaching and cooking, but I felt amazing in this little dress. There's something about its floatiness that I love, and I think I am obsessed with these shoes. Ob. Sessed.

I was initially ambivalent about the blue-on-blue pairing, but then I was like, let me just embrace all that blue - and the mismatched shades. B was not as big a fan, but I kind of loved it. Besides, this dress is sleeveless, and it was chilly.

See how floaty and spinny the dress is? Love it. Also, those mountains in the background? That's actually Volcán Poás, the second largest crater in the world. And this is behind my house. In fact, that's the view I have from my bedroom window. I wake up to see the view of a misty volcano.

Be jealous.


  1. Great shoes! I have similar ones in black, but I much prefer the color of yours :-)

  2. I am a little jealous, actually! That's a beautiful view and that dress looks AWESOME on you! I like the blue on blue. The embroidery on the dress is so pretty and the leopard belt is a fun touch. You look great!
