Currently Craving: Cobalt

cobalt pics collage Currently Craving: CobaltCobalt blue has become my new obsession. You can see here, on my Instagram, that I have a growing collection of cobalt blue items in my closet.  The color is so electric, and alive. It was my mom’s favorite color too- so maybe I inherited my love of the color from her.

I put together some of my current favorite cobalt items for you.  I recently got a 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli crossbody bag in this exact color.  I love it! (Photos to follow soon!) I love the large size Pashli as well. It reminds me of my cobalt blue Celine mini luggage bag which I adore! You can see photos of it HERE.  (Notice a trend with the cobalt blue color?)

What do you think of the color? Do you have a current favorite color you are rocking? Tell me in the comments!

Ahhh, Winter in NYC……..it can be gloomy, misty, foggy, and dark at times can’t it? But no matter how dark the skies become, there is something so gorgeous about the buildings, architecture, and design of the ciy that always stands out.  Case in point, the beautiful surroundings on this particular gloomy day in February. And, just so you know, it was freezing! I stayed warm by layering my Zara denim shirt over a J Crew t shirt, and my bright cobalt Marc Jacobs coat kept me both warm, and happy with a needed pop of color.  I last wore this gorgeous coat in THIS POST.  (You can buy a Similar coat HERE) I carried my orange clutch from ASOS for an added pop of color.  I have a always loved blue and orange together.This clutch was last seen in THIS POST, paired with denim.  (Similar clutch HERE.) The fringe suede boots are Nine West. They were on sale, and sold out, but you can buy a similar style HERE.  Stay warm!
