Feeling blue

(J. Crew denim shirt, ZARA blue bubble shorts, Target wedges)

I am hardly feeling sad, but I do have the blues -- as in I've been rediscovering my love of all things blue: the sky, the ocean, nail polish, Smurfs, denim, and these awesome bubble shorts from ZARA. This outfit  was inspired by the current J. Crew lookbook, which features amazing color blocked ensembles. What I love about this trend is that it can be wild and crazy, but also toned down. I had originally paired this outfit with a very blue shirt, but I decided to opt for a more subdued version with a denim shirt instead, which still has just as much blue, but not to make me look like a Smurfette.

This weekend was spent being absolutely lazy. Senioritis is setting in. I can feel it. My internship is coming to a close this week, so I should have some more free time to focus on myself. A little me time is in order.

Ahhh! I totally relate to your post. I have been obsessed with blue lately. (If you visit my blog now, you'll know what I mean) but I just love all sorts of blue!

I love color-blocking as well! Ah!

Definitely have me time. It is very necessary.
