Blue Challenge!

So the lovely, gorgeous, super-stylish Cheryl from Adventures of a Pinay Niska challenged me to find an assortment of blue items in my closet. I found this challenge a little difficult since my closet is a complete mess right now as I’m moving things out of my room and making room for new furniture and accessories to move in. Nonetheless, I thought of a few items which were not thrown into a pile somewhere in my house and thought I would share.

First are my new Reebok Easytones. I’ve never worn them, but I’ve wanted to try them for when I finally get back on the treadmill. And yes, they are not blue, but the box is so I thought it should count!

Second is my Gap merino wool cardigan. It’s from their newest collection, and I just love it. It’s super warm but really light weight. Perfect for layering with anything. And in navy blue, my favourite neutral, it was a great buy.

Third is my gorgeous Swarovski necklace that I got as a birthday gift last year. It’s wonderful, and the special someone who gave it to me will always be in my heart. And yes, again the box is blue!

As you can tell, the carpet in my room is also blue, so this proved quite perfect. These are my only blue shoes I could dig up right now. The slippers are from Aldo from 2001, the blue flats are from nine west from a couple years back, and the turquoise sandals are from nine west too.

Lastly, is this beautiful blue scarf my sister got as a present from one of her friend’s who went to Hong Kong. I’m lucky that she lets me borrow it sometimes; I just love the metallic and the blue together.

  4. Who said you could borrow my blue scarf from HK? Only *I* can wear a stunning metallic with blue. If I ever catch you wearing my scarf again, I'm going to steal your starfish necklace, pawn it for magic chocolate cake and then eat the aforementioned magic chocolate cake. And I'll wear your sparkly blue slippers while carrying out said transaction. Kapeesh?

    Love,

    Your Sister
