Blue, my friends, is one of my all time favourite colours. I love blue. I think it comes from having blue eyes and them being complemented so well by the shade. Or a younger brother who was just so darn cute I wanted to be him. Still is actually, when I think about it. Or it could just be I was always a bit wilful when it came to such things and I probably decided somewhere along the line, boys colour my ass. So with that in mind I had a lot of choices to make. I even considered making this Smurf week on the blog and going all blue outfits, all week. But then I made a choice between navy and colbolt. I picked a favourite like choosing a favourite child, and here we go…

AS you can see I chose COLBOLT. Well, if you’re going to blue you might as well go all out, right? I have plenty of navy choices. Some of them will be showing up in the coming week {or two}. I think you’ll love them. But now, back to this one. I threw on my green and blue Target wedges again as a last minute thing. It turns out it is probably one of my favourite parts of the outfit. This top from ASOS Curve came ages ago, I’ve been trying to work out what to wear it with. The sheer front panel and the loose fit were a bit of a challenge. I had a singlet to put under it but I’ve lost it somewhere. Next time.

It turns out that these photos took AGES to get because the light was being tricky and my face was too. Shadows and weird looks on my face and dipping light… It’s hard work this outfit photo stuff. But since pencil skirts with heels and a bun are my all time favourite look at the moment, I had lots of reasons to persevere. Even when the wind changed and my face got caught looking a little bit like THIS…

Necklace – Collette
Top – ASOS Curve
Tee – Avella for Big W
Skirt – Virtu {similar}
Shoes – Target {gifted}

  • LOVE the shoes. And the matching nails … and the beads. But really LOVE the shoes.

    • Thanks Leanne. The shoes were a recent purchase and I feel a bit the same way about them. 😉

  • Melissa Mitchell

    You forgot to mention the kick-ass nails! Gorgeous girl. 🙂

  • Love!! Electric blue and teal…definitely a winning combo, and you’re rocking it Ms Suger.

    • It was an accident really, grabbed the shoes on my way out the door and was REALLY happy with the result. It just added that little something.

  • TWINSIES!!! #ADORE

    • Haha. I know right? Saw yours this morning and thought great minds think alike. 😉

  • Love this outfit on you! xo

    Suger you lil spunk! Those shoes are rad and I’m digging the length of your skirt. Such a lady huh 😉 If I am being an organised blogger I usually try to take my outfit shots in the early morning or late arvo. As soon as that sun is up it’s shadows galore.

    • Haha! Thank you. Such a lady. Especially in the second last pic. 😉

      We got pretty good with our timing of late afternoon there for a while but the change of season messed me up. Early mornings are ALWAYS out for me. I’m a sleeper. 😉

    I also think I better get my butt into Target to see if they still have any of those shoes left. Perfect for me…bright and wedged for comfort 😉

  • Gorgeous! This is such a great colour for you 🙂

  • I was waiting for this skirt to make an appearance….love the styling. And once again – I love those shoes…

    • It’s been here before. Just in a work incarnation. 😉

      Thank you, I’m working on trying to make them whole looks. And I adore these shoes too!

  • Stunning!

  • Cherie

    Spectacular!!! You look so fresh, so gorgeous, so very well put together Suger!!!
    Pssssst I’ve got one of those skirts too, haven’t worn it yet, aren’t they just TDF, no wonder they sold out ;~)
    Hey too fixed my cropping mess-up, golly I’m learning so much on AC 🙂 Have a wonderful week Dearheart 😉

    • Thank you Cherie.
      Would live to see how you’d wear yours. Get onto that would you? 😛
      You are! Great job. 🙂

  • Blue! I used to chose blue clothing cause it would bring out my blue eyes! You look amazing, I have to say, you ROCK the pencil skirts!

  • Carly Findlay

    I really like that necklace – a colleague has the pink version.
    I’m loving this Aussie Curves initiative. Love it.
    Ps – I hope you don’t mind me saying – you spell Cobalt with an A not an O.

    • Me too, it’s one of my favourites, especially now I’ve got an extender for it.
      It’s the best! Certainly spurred me on clothes wise.
      AND NO! I don’t mind at all. It kept getting the wiggle line but there was no suggestion! Thank you.
