Cobalt + cognac


This is one of my favorite dresses. It’s blue (my favorite color!), it has a fit-and-flare silhouette (my favorite), and it is super simple, so it can be worn lots of different ways. I love simple pieces that can be mixed and matched and paired with different colors, but sometimes, I find that it can also be hindering. It’s like there are SO many options that I just stick with one that works, or I don’t mix it up enough to feel like it’s a different look, if that makes sense at all. I get overwhelmed! I’ve been wanting to wear this dress in a “new” way to share on here, but I couldn’t think of anything that exciting (not saying this look is particularly exciting, haha). Thank goodness for Fran! She posted this look with her own cobalt dress, and I was inspired to pair mine with cognac. It feels rich, despite the fact that cobalt is more of a summery color–perfect for the summer-to-fall transition. (Keep an eye out; I will definitely be remixing it again in the winter months!)

P.S. My apologies for the super washed out photos. I’m not sure what happened! Still trying to figure out my camera almost a year later… 🙂

    • Thank you! 🙂 I think I may know which Madewell dress you’re talking about; I had a similar cobalt one on my wishlist for a while until I decided I did not need a second cobalt dress, haha. Looking forward to your post!

    • Thank you! 🙂 They really do! I kept wearing this dress with black, and when I saw Franish wear hers with cognac, I was like…duh. Of course. Cognac goes with everything! (I mean, I wear these sandals with so much–lol.)
