pantone fall link-up: royal blue

gap sweater {via thredup*}   ·   old navy button-down
the limited skirt {thrifted}   ·   merona mittie flats
minicci (payless brand) necklace

sorry i am late getting today's royal blue post up for the pantone-inspired fall color challenge marissa from the modern austen and i have been co-hosting all week, but like i mentioned yesterday i was at an all-day long aging convention yesterday... and by i mean all day, i left my house at 7:20am and got home at 9:20pm.  so, unfortunately i didn't get pictures taken ahead of time and posted.  i did survive the convention, grabbed tons of free pens (and flashlights and toddy cloths and decks of cards etc...), and enjoyed a warm reception and dinner with several of my colleagues.  it was a fun and inspiring day learning about issues related to aging.

for today's color, royal blue, i'm actually wearing the same sweater that i wore during our spring link up for the color dazzling blue!  oops... i'm sure no one remembered that but it was really the only shade of blue in my closet that i thought would work for royal blue.  i love how this outfit turned out - blue & yellow are such friendly complimentary colors and i liked the interesting black & white crosshatch pattern on the skirt as opposed to wearing black slacks or a plain black skirt.  i'm looking forward to seeing what blue hues you're wearing today!

get the look:  similar button-down / similar sweater / similar skirt / similar flats / exact necklace
