Perfect Summer Blue

For reason unknown, I am a slightly obsessed with cool blue this summer. Perhaps I am feeling blue because of these yummy jewel candies. Aren't these the perfect summer accessories? Who am I kidding, these are the perfect any day of the year. Looking at these lovelies reminds me of cool sea water on a hot summer day. -top Georg Jensen

Well, we can't all have lovely blue jewel candies, so I am willing to settle with lovely blue frocks.
-left Celine --- my favorite! I actually tried on something similar at Celine and it was to die for.

-Elie Saab ---how feminine and stylish (both via style.com)

Premium designers are great but who can afford to spend thousands on a dress. So I found super savvy summer blue frocks for those of us without huge salary.

-Pucci coverup $675 via Saks
-Juicy $258 via Saks
If you don't want to be blue allover, what about a pop of blue with a bag or clutch. I would love to get my hands on these two babies.

-royal blue printed hat $290 via Pucci
-Tory Burch blue floral print flip flops $45 via Nordstrom

Equipped with any of these savvy pieces this coming summer, a gal can face any hot summer day with a touch of perceived coolness. What about you, are you ready for blue yet?

  9. I love blue but don't wear enough of it (unless it's navy). These are such beautiful choices. Wow, that Celine dress is stunning! And I saw that Balenciaga blue (in a different bag style) today for the first time. Definitely a great pop of color.

  13. Blue is one of my favourite clothing colours. I can just see some of that jewellery going perfectly. Oh if only...the banana republic dress is great, I'm thinking summery beach cover up.

  15. I'm partial to blue because my birthstone is sapphire, but right now I really love the look of shimmery white stones like opals and moonstones.
