It wasn't very hard for me to come up with an almost entirely blue outfit for this look. While I tend to stray away from matching too much, the pairing of my embroidered blouse with my bright Gap flats was too perfect to resist. The color is so striking to photograph (especially against my pale feet) that it ties the look together. I also want to take a moment to appreciate this pair of jeans from Gap. I love a perfectly tailored skinny crop more than anything...until I wear these boyfriend jeans. Seriously, if you're looking for a pair that fits great around the waist and rear but is a true straight, "boy" cut, then these are for you! I have them in two washes because loving the color blue also comes with a serious denim addiction.

This outfit strikes me as perfectly Patrick in a few different ways. First of all, the bright shade of blue is so suited to his outgoing personality. Instead of a finished hem, I love that these shorts are cut-offs because it truly shows how laid back he is. Furthermore, we have a running joke that Patrick is essentially like an overgrown golden retriever puppy in human form. While the dogs on his button up are dalmatians, it's still a perfect fit. I was actually the one who had to talk him into the shirt because he didn't think the dog print was very professional. However, he says now that it is one of his favorite shirts.
I hope you've enjoyed our blue looks today. Instead of thinking of "the blues" as being sad I think of mainly two things: the type of music (hey Dad) and the abundance of hues of the primary color that I have in my wardrobe. What's your favorite color to wear?
