Blue I love you
There's something soothing about the color blue. It isn't just the color of the sky and the sea, it has actually been proven to be beneficial to the mind and body. It literally slows down human metabolism, which creates a calming effect. All of these awesome facts makes us love blue all the more.
As I'm sure you've noticed I have tons of pictures of outfits with mixed prints on my Instagram and blog. What can I say? I just can't resist playing with fun textures and prints. It's actually one of my favourite things to do as far as fashion and seeing prints come together gets me excited every time. For my outfit today I carried on with the theme but decided to mix prints in shades of blue to create an all blue super fun yet elegant look. In this ensemble I paired a deeper blue silky textured pant with an all over print and this cute palm tree printed Topshop blouse.
For accessories I wore my black and blue strappy Topshop sandals and my patent Chanel bag, which is a priced possession of mine from my trip to Hong Kong. The reason this bag means so much to me is because I waited over an hour to get into the Chanel store. Yup, you read that right. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but being the true Chanel lover that I am I braved through the wait. Throughout my years of traveling I have been to many of the world's luxury shopping meccas, but never have I seen anything like Canton Road in Hong Kong. While the higher-turnover store of many brands used to be the flagship in their home city, today's reality is that the largest-grossing store on the planet is usually located on the famous Canton Road.
Have you ever waited a crazy amount of time to get into your favorite store? Leave a comment below!!
