A French 5-Piece Wardrobe in Palace Blue (with grey and white)

Maybe she has grey hair and bright blue eyes?

(Yes, white linen pants require "granny panties" in YOUR nude...)

She likes subtle, understated, and relaxed looks that flatter her hair...

But this spring, she decides that she's going to be ALL ABOUT her blue eyes... Just for a bit of a change - why not?

(FYI - Lands' End calls this color Maritime Blue - it's worth search the site for other pieces...)

Now when she wants something bright, she has an abundance of choices! And she can still wear her subtle greys and whites when that's the mood...

I'm going to revisit each of these Common Wardrobes, but I'm going to go rogue and abandon the Pantone colors (trust me, I can't find the colors available to buy in any form I'd happy recommend to you!).

Instead of Pantone, I'm just going to show you colors (maybe starting with a scarf?) that have caught my eye this spring...

  1. This is a very stunning shade of blue. I;m in- I'm keen to see the colours that have caught your eye this Spring.

  2. Janice,
    That sounds like a great plan to me ! Do your own thing !

  3. I love this color blue! I keep trying to make baby blue work for my mostly grey and navy wardrobe, but this is much more me.

  4. All I can say is, Wow! That is a powerful color!

  5. Interesting that you aren't seeing the Pantone colors in clothing you would recommend. Maybe that is why we all love LL Bean. They have nice colors in quality clothing that is comfortable to wear and fits well.
