Two weeks ago I hosted a Nutrimetics party with eight girlfriends. It was a delightful afternoon which included trialling new make-up items, sipping champagne and debating the very entertaining topic of whether we were warm or cool colour suited ladies. It turns out most of us were more suited to the cooler colour spectrum so the pink toned lippies ended up being tres popular.
Our colour chat led to clothing choices and one of the colours on the cool colour wheel that we discovered suited most of us was none other than the colour of the moment – NAVY. I have been a fan of navy for many years and now I understand why I am drawn to it and seem to own quite a collection of navy clothing items. It suits my skin tone (fair to medium) and eye colour (green) and I feel good when I wear it.
There has been lots of talk about navy lately. Check out Navy Love by Bev from Iris May Style or Nikki from Styling You’s post which features navy in the 8 spring fashion trends for 2014. Navy is great for both basics and statement pieces so I’ve included some ideas for both in today’s moodboard.

Are you into navy? Would you try it this spring? Or have you been a fan for a while?
