Every once in a while I do something really dorky with my daily wardrobe, like a theme week. I’ve done a green week and one inspired by an In Style layout. This week, it’s all about navy.
I used to be terrified of navy. To my way of thinking, if I committed to one navy item, I’d have to buy navy shoes, a navy bag, and navy jewelry, at the very least, in order to incorporate the color into my wardrobe. I bravely bought my navy and white Merona wrap dress last spring and found that I didn’t need another single navy item to wear with it. I gradually became braver, buying more navy items, including my favorite: a navy swing cardigan (again, from Merona!) I’ve mixed navy with every color but purple. Even navy and black is nothing to shy away from. Finally, just a few weeks ago, I bought my first pair of navy shoes. They’re sandals, though, so you won’t get to see them until spring.
