Nautical & nice…it’s hard to go wrong with blue and white
Blue (or navy) and white is a classic combination that somehow always looks fresh, especially in summer.
Here’s a vacation-ready look in navy and white with a straw bag.
There’s a range of blues and navy for every seasonal palette. And if you’re a warm season (Spring, Autumn) your “white” will be cream, oyster, or ivory. Blue/navy and white/off-white can be an excellent starting point for a capsule or travel wardrobe.
Here are a few more blue and white pieces that recently caught my eye…
Blue & white for every seasonal palette
This soft cotton gauze popover top looks like it could be a Bright Navy from the Spring palette. I’m hoping to check it in person and will report back. There are several other colors available too (including white).
This star print linen shirt is available in sizes XX-Small to 2x. This might work for Winters or Summers (depending on how bright or soft the white is).
This Breton stripe tee has a cream background, so will work for Springs and Autumns. (Yes, the navy stripes are a bit dark, but don’t dominate.) I have this tee in two colors; it’s a very lightweight fabric, so comfortable even when it’s warmer.
And speaking of blue and white…
“Blue & White” was the theme of the May box from My French Country Home. I received my box (gifted) several days ago, and finally had time over the weekend to open it.
My French Country Home Box is a quarterly subscription box filled with uniquely French gifts, hand selected by Sharon Santoni. The contents are always kept secret until everyone has received their box, so part of the fun is discovering what’s inside.
This May box included:
- a scented candle from Rose & Marius in a beautiful porcelain container (which can be repurposed)
- gorgeous hand towels and hand lotion from Fragonard
- a pretty illustrated notepad from Season Paper
- a leather pencil case to go in a handbag
- Lab Elle flower design earrings in gold and mother-of-pearl
- a miniature antique bottle
- watercolor print card of a charming Paris scene by Fabienne de la Croix
