Wearing All Shades Of Blue*

Did you know? Blue was not always a colour for boys? Boys were dressed in pink because it was a more decided and stronger color, more suitable for the boys, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girls. It is the 50s that manufacturers decided to make blue for the boys and pink for the girls. And from there on, colours got a gender, a sexuality and a whole lot of stereotypes associated to them.

Yeah…

I mean, why would you give a colour a gender? It is just a colour. The only thing you’ll achieve is put labels on colours, hence on people and develop stupid standards of who needs to be what. Growing in a family of five kids, I was wearing all colours and my brothers wearing my old baby clothes, they were too. I wear blue, they wear pink nowadays. We all turned out well I think.

Anyway…

I do think blue is the perfect color for spring and summer.

It’s bright, it’s fresh, it pops up. Because it’s a light colour, it sends the sun rays back and does not make you too warm. What else makes blue so perfect? It has so many different shades that can be styled all together for a great look. And so I did.

This outfit would have been perfect should the sun had shown itself more often while Ana and I were staying at Borgo Casa Al Vento… Or when we were in Tuscany in general! Escaping the bad English weather to find… bad Italian weather. It was just down to timing though… The weeks before and after were stunning!

The outfit was still good despite the weather. But judge for yourself.

The base of this outfit is a black bandeau dress that is simple yet elegant and so easy to accessorize, with a blue biker jacket that I bought two years ago in Zara. I accessorized those two pieces with this amazing silk scarf that Basma Design so kindly sent me, this necklace and tea bag that I borrowed from Ana. I broke the rule saying that you should not go for more than two colors on one single outfit with those amazing pom pom sandals. They are just little additions of colours so I think it’s all fine!

Now, I need to find another occasion to wear those sandals!

Taken separately, all the pieces in this outfit – expect for the sandals – are pretty basic but it is styling them all together that gives a nice and stylish outfit!

Shop the outfit
Biker jacket – Zara (similar Missguided)
Bandeau dress – LOTD
Silk scarf – Basma Design*
Pompom sandals – Single Price (10% off with MARIE10)*
Tassel necklace – Miss Pap
Tea bag – Miss Selfridge

What do you think of this outfit? Which colour will be on all your outfits this spring and summer? Any pieces in your wardrobe you have had for ages and still makes the base of any outfit?

Thanks a lot for stopping by. I hope you liked this post.

See you soon,
Love,
Corinne

    This is the best outfit! Blue is one of my favorite colors, so I’m all about this. Your heels are a lot of fun too! I wish I could walk in heels!

    I love the outfit super cute! Those shoes❤️❤️❤️ I am glad I never thought of blue as a boy thing I love wearing blue.

    I love love love all the shades of blue on you! That bag is gorgeous! I always get so frustrated as I have a son and when I walk into pretty much every clothing store there is a huge pink section for girls and a blue section for boys (although equally you will usually find plenty of blue in the girls section but where is the pink for boys?!) Love this post, and I agree, blue is perfect for spring and summer! 💙💙💙

    I just love blue, blue and purple were and still are my favorite colors. 90% of my clothes are shades of blue, I’m obsessed. I want to dye my hair blue, but I look better with my hair dyed purple :))

    I adore this outfit on you! I would have never thought to pair different shades of one color together. I think the shoes really pull it all together!

    I love the bag and the shoes! The purse provides a great “pop of color” and the pom-poms scream “spring-y fun”. 🙂

    I think blue is your color! I’m loving the blue leather jacket. So cute!

  18. May 9, 2018 / 1:52 am

    Wow! You are so fashionable! I love your style. The blue jacket compliments your skin 🙂

  19. May 9, 2018 / 2:55 am

    I think blue is definitely a great color and agree it’s perfect for spring & summer! I love those shoes!!

  20. May 9, 2018 / 3:38 am

    I read so much about blue having been for boys as part of my degree. Enjoyed seeing someone interested in fashion picking up on this too. So silly that colours are gendered or that gender exists.

  21. Those shoes are TOO cute! And whatever about blue – I wear blue all the time, my 20-month-old GIRL twins wear blue a lot (it matches their eyes) and my husband wears pink a LOT (because he likes it!)

  22. May 9, 2018 / 7:12 am

    Blue is my favorite color so I am all in in wearing all shades of my favorite color in an outfit. Your styling is really nice love that scarf and the jacket

    I love your outfit, it looks great on you. Blue is one of my favorite colors as well. The shoes could be worn with any fun type outfit I would thing. I absolutely love your little black dress. I can’t wear those kinds of clothes, although, I buy them for my adult daughter for holidays or let’s face it just to shop.

  26. May 10, 2018 / 2:44 am

    Oh I just love your outfit. I’m so on the hunt for a similar biker jacket in that gorgeous blue hue. And those pom pom shoes are fun.

  27. May 10, 2018 / 5:01 am

    I love the color combination of your outfits. And your pompom sandals is so pretty! For spring and summer, I’m thinking pink, green, and anything bright.

  28. May 10, 2018 / 11:54 am

    Oh wow, I would never think of wearing so many shades of blue, you can totally rock it. Love the shoes!

  29. May 10, 2018 / 9:38 pm

    I must have picked up on the blue vibe. The other day when I went shopping, I got home and realised that everything I bought was blue. Blue isn’t usually a colour I’d reach for but there are some lovely pieces and designs around at the moment.

  34. May 11, 2018 / 7:34 pm

    Gorgeous photos! I’ve always loved blue and hated pink, mostly because people tried to force the whole gender colour thing on me as a kid 🙄 xx

    Oh my gosh you look so funky I love it! The shoes are my absolute favourite along with the blue jacket, that’s one colour I actually don’t own leather in! I have those sunglasses in 3 different colours too, they’re so perfect for this time of year and such a fab alternative to normal shaped ones!

    First of all, I love your confidence in your photos. That jacket is too bomb and those shoes are to die! The whole outfit works and I love the backdrop of the pictures too. Really great blog!

  39. May 12, 2018 / 4:46 am

    I love how you’re decked out in blue. Blue is a great color to wear whether you’re a boy or a girl. Same with pink. Can we go back to a time when colors aren’t assigned to specific genders? I love how you styled your outfit. Looks very chic!

    I love shades of blue, and there are many occasions that I’ve attended events wearing blue dresses. I find it convenient, and secured. Look at the banks – most of them are in blue!
