Black & Blue

I remember thinking when I was younger that you could never wear black and blue together. It was one of those silly fashion rules that I believed. Perhaps I heard it from an older, cooler girl and I took it seriously.
Fast forward to today and I stand here (actually I’m sitting) to tell you there are NO FASHION RULES!! Seriously. Colors mix and match together from every end of the rainbow as do patterns and textures.
That’s the beauty of fashion…it’s not still. It’s constantly moving and evolving to fit the times, the perception and the people who wear it.
I couldn’t believe how many posts I saw after Labor Day about wearing white. I mean…c’mon, white is a ridiculously versatile color!
Why did we ever think we could’t wear it year round?
Those silly rules and outdated mentality are anything but chic so if you really want to know what the rules are…just remember this: you make the rules! If you like it, wear it and if it makes you feel good, then you know you’re on the right track!

Belt: HERMÈS Contance black belt

By the way, this Bradamant top is a bodysuit! I’m obsessed with it. Such a great addition to my closet plus it serves a fab purposes…staying tucked in!
I first saw it on fellow Miami blogger, Kristin Clark, and I’m happy to have picked up my own.
I think I’ll be adding a couple more to my wardrobe before the year is over. I definitely recommend you checking them out.

    You are so right Martha.
    We should wear what we want and when ever we want lol, there are no rules in fashion, that’s what I love about it the most.

    You look absolutely beautiful in black and blue and I am especially loving these Valentino bow heels <3

    Enjoy a great day love,
