Markdown Mondays: Mid-Summer Blue Dream
I have a love-hate relationship with August. On the one had, the air is warmer and full of ripeness, the sunsets are more saturated, and the day is still long. But on the other hand, there is a feeling of blue sadness in the air – like the days of warm weather are coming to an end soon 🙁 It’s no wonder Summer is considered a “cool season” in terms of the color palette – everything is covered in this layer of dusk and blue-ness.
In today’s #MarkdownMondays style digest, I selected 5 pieces that take blue to the next level – from dresses to blazers to shoes. The accessories are chosen to enhance and contrast the pieces – as to make the most intense statement.
Enjoy – and happy styling! All shopping details below.
