Cool Cobalt

Clearly, I am on a cobalt kick. First this skirt, now these pants! But can you blame me? Cobalt was big on the runways - it's been all the rage for a few months now. Blame the Duchess of Cambridge? Michelle Obama is wearing it. Rachel Berry is wearing it. And I love wearing it, too. Perhaps because, of all the bright colors that are so on trend right now, cobalt is the easiest to wear. You may not want to wear an electric green dress, but cobalt is like navy blue with a punch - conservative but cool. Instead of regular jeans, a cobalt pair makes a white shirt and boots seem instantly cool. It's inherently easy, which gives cobalt staying power. Still not sure how to wear this beautiful blue? Check out my cobalt Pinterest board for some more inspiration!

Have you been wearing cobalt? What's your favorite way to style the color?

Update: I can't STOP wearing this bold shade! I've mixed cobalt & lime, cobalt and leather and cobalt and color!
