Cobalt Blue

Wednesday. I have never posted on a Wednesday, I don't think, so I decided to walk on the wild side and give you an outfit on hump day. Here is a Winter look from the depths of cold. These few pictures were so chilly that I thought I might lose my fingers & toes. This seems to be a common theme among Canadian bloggers, yes? Here I am, with all 20 extremities in place, wearing a cobalt blue jacket I picked up from a local shop here in town called reNeu Boutique as well as a headband & booties I picked up from another boutique, Je Suis Prest.




I've always been enamored with this color. It reminds me of my very favorite t.v. show, Six Feet Under. During one episode, a character named Claire is mesmerized by a tube of cobalt paint but leaves it on the shelf because it's too expensive. Her boy toy later surprises her with it saying, "I don't care what you do with it. I just wanted you to have it. I have a theory that every now and then, a person should get what they want when they want it. It keeps you optimistic." Some solid words for a Wednesday.

Cobalt is such a gorgeous colour and you look beautiful in it. I got so carried away with my cobalt obsession a couple of years ago that my boyfriend thought I'd worn the same shirt for an entire week. Really they were seven different shirts all of the same colour ha!

I love that quote. It's true that every now and again we should all get something that we really want even if we don't need it. It's even better when someone else picks it up for you ;) Happy Wednesday doll. xx

That blue pea coat is amazing on you! I love that color, but unfortunately it doesn't look good on me. Guess I will have to live vicariously through you.
