Summer Blues Style Collage


Recently I have become obsessed with collages depicting certain colors. I figured I would start a new series of sorts showing some nail polish and/or other makeup swatches alongside some clothing and accessory items all in the same color family.

First up is blue!

All these items are totally my style, and it all started with me looking at my swatch of Finger Paints Winter Sky. I love that color so much!

Right now I am really into the whole colored skinny jeans thing even though I only own one pair of them (grass green from The Gap). But I want them in practically every color.

My normal day-to-day style is a pair of jeans, tennis shoes (Converse, Vans, etc.) and a t-shirt or plaid shirt. But I also wear and own a lot of boots. These deep blue leather boots with studs on them are fabulous, and I would definitely wear them!

I am a watch collector and aficionado, so these blue ones are on my “I wish” list!

I own a lot of jewelry (99% is cheap stuff) but don’t tend to wear earrings or necklaces much at the moment. I do usually throw on a cool giant ring and maybe a bunch of bracelets though.

Scarves are another favorite of mine. I have a zillion of them and can’t seem to stop buying them!

When it comes to bags I prefer something fairly light and big enough to hold my basics: wallet, sunglasses case, Canon Elph and smaller junk. The crossbody ones are great because then you are hands free!

Where to buy:

Royal Pain Sweatshirt
Cupcake Cult Tshirt
Fossil Watch
Toy Watch
Swarovski Ring
Linea Pelle Bracelet
Rebecca Minkoff Spiked Bracelet
Tiganello Bag
Cole Haan Bag

So let me know, do you like the idea of a series like this? What would you like to see added to it, if anything?

    Hey Kelly, I think it’s a wonderful idea! Is it possible to link all the little pictures though? Like if we click on the pictures it would lead us to the bigger swatch pictures/websites. It sounds like an awful lot of work and if it’s not possible I’d totally understand. There’s no way in hell I’d know how to do that!

    I really dig the light blue purse and sneakers!

    Great idea!! Of course the bag I loved is almost $200 lol

    Love this, but thought you should know for email subscribers it’s all a long line of code with no images or notable text. (At least that’s how mine arrived. I had to click through to your site to see what it was.)

      Ack, sorry I will check on that!

    Zoya Skylar must be mine!

    I love love love all of these blues/turquoises! That goes for polishes, shoes and t-shirts also. Accessories I tend to green a lot more, don’t know why. 😉

    $68 for a blue studded bracelet!!! =O I wonder if I can DIY with a dog collar.

    When I was in high school, every single top I wore HAD to be blue. It was my signature color. And, it just happened to be our school color; Thunderbird Blue.

    Love this idea and I like a lot of the items in this first post! I wish I still had style, I think after gaining 20 lbs and not working outside of home I lost it somewhere. Love the inspiration!
