Navy is the New Neutral

Fridays are for fashion here on the blog and for this Friday, I have breaking news. It was reported this week by a major fashion news source aka Neiman Marcus that navy is the new neutral. I have always been a fan of navy, even more so than black. It is a basic, it is a outfit foundation, start with navy whatever and go up from there. To help get more of this newly-named neutral in your closet, I have collected a few items that I love.

navy is the new neutral

Gap sleeveless shift dress (yes it is actually navy!)
JCrew high-heel ankle boots
Gap wide brim hat
JCrew leather ballet flats
JCrew colorblock sequin top
JCrew Allie dress
Gap utility tote

For the end of your week, here is a little navy in your life. Have a great weekend all. Tomorrow is race packet pick-up time, then a crafty afternoon with a friend. Then Sunday morning at 7am, my running partner, Sean and I will be crossing the starting line to run our second half marathon of the year and then a rodeo in the afternoon, yee-haw! Then I get to rest on Monday with a day off, thanks Columbus for a holiday here in America. Have a great one all!

I love navy! I have no idea why there isn't more of it in my closet.... and that Allie dress can go ahead and just get in my closet now. (: Good luck in your half marathon and have a blast at the rodeo. The PBR was just in Tampa... but we didn't go. Sad. Have a fun weekend.
