~~Blue Me Away~~

There's no question that royal blue is the "it" color transitioning from this summer to this upcoming Fall season. It's been spotted on runways of the likes of Gucci, BCBG, Lela Rose, Issa, DKNY and Michael Kors (just to name a few!).

I like when fashion takes it one step further. Mixing blue with black, and adding in asymmetrical details makes this a look I couldn't resist recreating for my blog!

Here's what I wore to modify this runway look:

I got my blue dress at Lord & Taylor four years ago, but I wear it every summer! It's a soft, tee-shirt material which makes it super comfortable to wear all day. I love the braided strap on the left shoulder that gives the dress a chic, asymmetrical feel. I also really love the layered fabrics on the bodice of the dress. I think it has the same effect as the Lela Rose dress in the runway inspiration photo.

I added on the black cardigan, and wore gorgeous blue earrings from EveryOccasionDesigns to complete the look. (Not sure if you can tell in the photo, but my sweater has sequin pockets!) Love me some sparkles!

Thoughts... Would you wear this look??
