It’s Monday! Wimbledon week 2 is underway. We’re huge tennis fans so we’ve got the matches on running as we work. A moment ago we checked our mailbox and found an invitation from Moda Operandi to check out their “Blue Crush” editorial. So we did. And not only did we get to browse through some pictures of clothes and shoes and accessories that we can’t afford but wish we could, we got the inspiration to make up the “What’s your favorite shade of blue” poem on the right. And we got to learn a few new things about the color blue.
Cobalt, turquoise, royal, navy
Aquamarine and also baby
Cerulean, Iris and Cornflower
Dodger, Phthalo, sky and powder
Viridian, oxford, yale and teal
Midnight, medium, Majorelle
Bondi, Bradeis, Tiffany, true
What’s your favorite shade of blue?
Did you know there were 66 shades of blue?
According to Wikipedia there are 66 shades of blue. We find that we’re partial to the lighter colors such as powder blue, baby blue, sky blue and alice blue as well navy and true blue.
In their “Blue Crush” editorial, Moda Operandi tries to make us “Fall in love with shades of navy, cobalt and sapphire”. Like this Tome navy silk charmeuse jumpsuit.
This 100% silk charmeuse jumpsuit comes with a $975 price tag. Jumpsuit featues a button-up front, elegant wide leg bottoms and a contrasting bright cobalt blue self tie belt.
And this Tome cobalt blue silk crepe v-neck dress
This 100% silk crepe dress is described as “evocative yet effortless”. We love how flowy and soft and vibrant blue it looks. You can’t judge a book by the cover of course, but you can almost see in the picture why this dress comes with a $1,195 price tag.
Tabitha Simmons Denim Espadrille Sandals
MSGM Blue Asymmetrical Ruffled Hem Dress
Saloni Blue Elena-B Culottes
These ultramarine blue culottes from Saloni are made of 87% polyester and 13% elastane. They come with a $385 price tag. You can get the Saloni blue cropped off the shoulder Karolina top to go with these culottes. The top is $280 so you can get the set for $665.
These are our top 5 picks from Moda Operandi’s “Blue Crus” editorial. Looking at our selections we’re thinking we should probably add electric blue to our list of favorite shades of blue. The ultramarine and cobalt blue items we’ve picked would all seem to fall in the electric blue range.
So what’s your favorite shade of blue?
