LOOKBOOK | Matchy-matchy in shades of cobalt blue
Yes, I know it's horrible: I deliberately went for a matchy-matchy getup. I know how overly color-coordinated outfits are often frowned upon but I went with it anyway. Whether I realized it too late or I was really aware of it from the start doesn't matter because I was matchy-matchy in cobalt blue.
Blame it on the shoes.
They're cute, aren't they? I've had this pair for so long but for some reason never got to wear them until now. I don't know what I was thinking but I instantaneously thought of these similarly colored pants that I have and this old white shirt with subtle stripe accents in the same color - and just went for it. Oh yes, I even thought of this two-tone blue bow tie but thankfully I restrained myself. I swear it would have gone perfectly with the whole ensemble, though.
If anything at all, at least I opted for a rather colorful belt to break all this monochrome. But then, of course, it still has a shade that's anchored on my cobalt blue madness.
Well, there was no awkward feeling at all throughout the day. I guess I just owned it, however cringe-worthy it may be to some.
So, what do you think?
