Navy Blue Is So Glorious

I know, I know, I've been away for quite a while and haven't posted any outfit inspiration or tips in a while. I just have been super, super busy with the remodel, my work, birthdays, and my family. It's just been crazy. However! I have been taking pictures of my outfits along the way which I will be posting soon. Most of them are my Sunday outfits but if you want to see more of my day to day outfits, just let me know, I can do that! :)

Now on to Navy. This color is super hot this year. We can see it home decor and in fashion. I'm really digging Navy. In fact, I want to paint either my brick fireplace navy or the window wall in my living room. The color I have chosen is Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore, just so yummy. Not too dark, not tlight, not saturated, not dull. Just perfect. :)

Navy made it's amazing and super popular comeback in 2014. But did navy really go out of style? No, it's just that people are recycling it in the fashion trends again. You see, navy is both a neutral color and a cool color. What this means is that it can go with anything. Don't believe me? Try it. Navy and red=fab, with orange=fab, with yellow=fab, with gray= fab, etc. You get the point. 

Since navy is a cool color and a neutral, why not also pair it with it's classic partner in crime: Khaki? Khaki is both a neutral and a warm color so it works wonderfully well with navy. On the color wheel, these two are almost exact opposites.

Tips for wearing navy:
1. Pair either with a statement color or a neutral
2. Consider your dark blue jeans to be navy
3. Navy can be either in your statement piece or your complementary pieces
4. Gold, silver, or pearls look fabulous with navy

And since I'm still on this navy color kick...
