Its official. I am over the moon for blue and white. Was there ever such a crisp, fresh, cheerful, classy, restful, understated, luxurious color combination? No! Not ever! I have been not so subtly working it in to every single room in my new house. Whats really fun about working with blue and white is that you can play around with multiple shades of either color, and it just gets prettier. Also, it makes other colors POP! Look...

|This is one of my favorite things. Its a very early piece of Blue Willow porcelain. My mother hid feathers she found in the garden inside it.|
I had high hopes when I ordered this snappy little clutch from Forever 21, and I am not disappointed! The white stripes are patent leather, and the blue is such a deep pretty hyacinth shade. I love the graphic punch it adds to an otherwise very conservative work outfit. Pardon my wrinkles, it was a long, rumply sort of day.
Today I am wearing real eyeshadow! Yikes! You guys, I am NOT an eyeshadow girl. I like to play it nice and safe with a classic cat eye, and sometimes on a weekend I'll smudge a little Benefit R.S.V.P. around, slap on some mascara, and call it good, but I just could not say no to this crisp, saturated turquoise! Its so 60s ladies-who-lunch, especially with a retro updo. I have to admit, I feel pretty awesome about the whole thing...What do you think?

In other news, bare legs! Wheeeeee! In case you were wondering, that was not a gosh-this-is-so-fun kind of wheeeeee, but rather, a gosh-what-was-I-thinking-this-is-unpleasantly-brisk kind of wheeeeee. Newsflash. All visual evidence to the contrary, it is not actually spring yet. Go put some pants on. Geez.
