Electric blue

Helsinki, 5 degrees

Source

Blue skies smiling at me - nothing but blue skies do I see.

November evenings. Having a delicious dinner and discussing the day. Selecting photos to put up on our living room wall and ordering them online. Snuggling up against you in the sofa. Lighting up some candles. Putting up some paintings in the bedroom. Spending some quality cosy time in our new home. Oh how I love November evenings!

There is a heavy storm coming up in Helsinki and we might have some snow tomorrow! I love storms when one find oneself safe inside in the best of companies! The stormy weather got me reflecting on electric blue.

Electric blue is such a strong color, one of my favorites this fall. Electric blue goes well with black, grey and cognac. It can even be combined with emerald green and ruby red. In Elle Finland the following kind of electric blue outfits were presented. According to Elle Finland, the fall is the time for Aunty Blue (a humorous addition to Aunty Green, Brown and Violet, do you know the children's books by Swedish Elsa Beskow?)!

I love electric blue since it's such an energetic color! Every time I see a colleague in this color, it gives me energy, something we all need when we're having less and less daylight as we approach wintertime.

My favorite electric blue outfit is simple: a blue tunic with a dragonfly necklace and some blue earrings. Sometimes I like to combine it with my blue jacket which I've presented in earlier posts, e.g. here.


How do you like to wear this bold color?

Hope you're enjoying this Monday evening as much as I am!

  4. even though "blue" sometimes connects with "blue Mondays" in my eyes I still found that post very enjoyable and well, who doesn't wear blue? I know I do, hehe. denim blouses, blue jeans - regular pieces like that. I like your tunic-dress btw and electric blue definitely suits you and your firefly! oh and when it comes to weather then yesterday was really crappy in Estonia, super windy and rainy. today is already much better, at least right now.
    and about cocktails - I definitely can't say I don't like those because sometimes I do (like once a year, hehe). the thing is beer and champagne are pretty much only alcoholic drinks I choose. I'm just super picky.
