Feeling Blue

No, I’m not “feeling blue”, but I thought it made a good title for this monochromatic blue outfit I wore on Easter! Which was three weeks ago…it’s just taken me this long to finally post these photos.

I had a fleeting thought of sewing a new dress for Easter, but then realized I didn’t want to try and hurry that, so back to my tried and true navy blue dress it was. Paired with my navy leather purse, some new-old shoes and a straw hat (which I sewed a matching ribbon for), it was the perfect classic look for the day. And that’s pretty much all I have to say about this outfit, aside from the fact that I look a bit red in these pictures because it was so cold when we took them- I was definitely wishing for a warm jacket.

We’re in that weird between-seasons time of year, where I’m no longer in the mood to wear wool and tweed, but it’s not quite warm enough yet for the wrap skirts. I’ve been wearing things from both my winter and summer wardrobe, but I’ll be happy when I can actually pack away my winter things for the season!
