I've Got the Blues

by Shortgirlbigmood

I've been with my husband for 20 years and he has the most incredible blue eyes. I've always gravitated to buying him blue shirts to reinforce his stunning eye color. But I've never worn blue myself! My eyes are brown and with my lighter complexion I've always stayed with more neutral tones. Until my kids starting playing sports for a school with blue as the major team color. Now I can't get enough! The more I wear it the more I'm convinced blue is like another neutral and anyone can pull it off. I do tend to stay with warmer tones like in the options below. Please let me know what you think!

First in this ribbed turtleneck tunic I found on Amazon. By pairing it with creams and browns in the styling, I made blue a perfect fall color!

Here I simply added tall boots and some of my favorite accessories.

Next I belted the waist and added colorblock ankle boots.

Throw a cardigan over your shoulders to make it extra cozy!

I love the contrast of light and dark blue on this Time and Tru sweater from Walmart.

I styled it with dark wash denim from Express and cream booties.

But my very favorite blue find to date is this oversized sweater tunic from Amazon that is a dead ringer for a much more expensive brand that rhymes with Free People ;)

Add a hat for some extra flare!

Or style with a designer look-a-like crossbody and booties for the perfect fall look.
