Royal Blue for Summer

June 21, 2010

As many of you know, I have a very select colour palette. Red, white, black and brown are my usual picks. But – get ready for this – my new favourite colour – which is slowly creeping its way into my wardrobe is – ready for it? – cobalt blue! Yes, that’s right, blue! As in Yves Klein blue…

So…it all started with a little Forever 21 ruffle…
