Blue, The Color of Calm

With summer temperatures soaring up, I am looking for cooler and calming colors in my wardrobe. Lately, I have been obsessed with the color blue, Indigo and Powder Blue being the top contenders. The more muted and dusty shades of blue are soothing and spark feelings of calmness. Just observe your mind when you are near the ocean or look up a clear blue sky.

In this outfit, I am wearing one color from head to toe, aka monochrome look. It used to be a fashion faux pas to wear anything that is too coordinated or too discordant. But now monochrome outfits, mixing prints, color blocking are all on trend. If you think wearing one color is too risky or dull for you, it is best to incorporate different textures or shades of the same color. For example, this over-sized Zara tunic is a different tone of blue, has lace details and pinstripes; when paired with this H&M animal print belt breaks the color. I kept the accessories in varying metals of silver, brass and gold tone, like the silver earrings from Amrapali, lapis stone pendant from Madewell (available in stores and online) and stack of bangles from Francesca’s.

It was a lovely day in Hermann Park (Houston). I make it a point to visit parks in a city because I feel its the best way to get some green therapy. My father used to take my sister and me to the park where we would visit the zoo and practice skating. As we grew up, those trips reduced but the park like many other places became part of our childhood, that we still hold on to.
