{summer staple} navy, white & neutral

Some of you are probably reading this post going, "Duh, Taylor, duh," because navy is such an eternally good move. It will always be such. Perhaps it's so obvious you barely notice the choice anymore. I'll admit though, it took me a while to come around to this dark blue hue, because I most often default to black. The kicker is that navy is just as easy, simple and chic, but has even more versatility. Navy can be tailored, structured and professional, but it can also be sun-bleached, worn-in and soft. No matter what you might be purchasing - pants, a sweater, a dress a necklace - you cannot, I repeat cannot go wrong with navy. This summer, I'm feeling a pretty nautical-meets-collegiate-meets-I-think-I'm-getting-the-hang-of-this-East-Coast-thing color palette. Navy, white and neutrals; with pops of bright, fresh hues like coral and minty green.

Alright, that concludes this post from Captain Obvious. Hopefully I haven't lost you over this one, next time I'll try and spice it up a bit. A post devoted to versatility of the little black dress, perhaps?

  1. take me to nantucket! this is getting me excited for summer weekends on the east coast :)

  2. I was all about black when I was younger, but blue is such a wonderful color. You can go from the palest of blues to what essential looks like black but isn't. I totally agree that it is extremely versatile.
    I went to the mall this weekend and bought several tops, I had to stop myself from gravitating towards the blues and get something else.
