I am a big fan of this silver blue color, and you all know I could use a bit more blue in my wardrobe. This dress has a kind of grecian design in the front, the way it crosses, and the way the waist is accentuated. It is too bad that I didn’t go to Greece to get it!! This blue could be paired with many colors, a lovely lavendar is what I was thinking as well. This look is mostly monochome, as my bag with its texture, has that same steel blue color, like a hydrangea bush, which is what I thought of when I bought the ring I am wearing. Another time, I may add a touch of purple, with a scarf instead of this antique like  blue necklace.

      Thanks Kaitlin!
      That is what I like about it, the unique blue with silver undertones, as well as how it crosses in the front. The top looks more form fitting as the bottom flows down. I appreciate the comment! Stop by any time. jess

    This soft colour might be difficult to wear for some women but for you and your beautiful ginger hair it is amazing, Jess! Lovely earrings too.

    I’ll get back to you tomorrow, dealing with some computer issues at moment!

      Hi Ammette
      I hadn’t heard from you for a couple days. I am glad you are ok. I know we all get busy. Thank you regarding the dress. I do like the criss cross in the front.. I mentioned I would wear orchid possibly next time in accesories, scarf etc.. My earrings are from a new favorite place as well called Charming Charlies. One goes in there, it is huge, and everything earings, necklaces, purses, and scarves, all arranged by color. Ah, my husband is in computer maintenence and IT, so I know about computer problems!!!
      talk soon, jess xx

    Jess I’m sorry about that typo I obviously meant dress and not stress, I am moving in the next day or two so things are a bit hectic here. Again, I apologize. Kisses, Elle,

      Thanks Elle. I wasn’t sure how many people liked this dress. I love the steel blue color and the way it is cut as well. My ring was just a fun accesory as it does remind me of the flowers I can’t plant haha. Hugs xo Jess
