Navy is the new Black

June 16, 2016

So lets back up a couple weeks...  I was at Whole Foods, getting lunch.  I saw a woman in a sophisticated navy suit with a off-white cami underneath.  She looked effortlessly chic, and I really appreciated that the suit was navy and not black!  I was inspired and suddenly on the hunt for the perfect navy pants (I don't regularly wear suits to work so I opted for just pants).  Of course, the Loft had several navy pairs to choose from.  I ended up with this pair -- currently 40% off.  (Can I just say the Loft's 'Julie' is my new favorite fit, I used to be a 'Marissa' girl... )  So then, last weekend I ran into L&T just to buy some cosmetics and I ended up with this vest.  I was naturally tempted to buy it in black, you know my go-to color.  But I decided to be wild, branch out and try something new: this soft baby blue.  Plus, I loved the navy lining and just knew I had to pair it with my new navy dress pants.    

I'm was so excited when I recently found this new line - H Halston - at Lord & Taylor!  Some Most of the pieces were screaming my name, like this suede shift dress and this v-neck dress.. (I've shared my other favorite picks below.)   I can't wait to shop the collection a bit more.  

I hope you can appreciate that this 'work-ready' looks doesn't involve any black.  Maybe navy is new black?   Nah, not yet....
