Navy & Black, With Fur

Navy & black

Navy and black together! My mother was horrified.

Though the light in the pictures makes the blue look a lovely deep midnight blue, it’s really navy. I actually quite like the idea of pairing the two colours together: it’s like the most-taboo colour pairing in the stylebook, so let’s all-out break that rule!

And talking of light, there was very little when we took these pictures. December is a month when you really have to get your act together long before 3:30pm to take blog pictures, otherwise it’s unavoidable camera shake city. It’s just too nice and warm inside with tea and roast chestnuts at the moment to start thinking “ooh must go outside into the cold and take blog photos”.

Happy weekend everyone 🙂

    Very nic Catherine. And I do share your feelings of : Oh dear I have to go outside to take blog photos and the weather is so cold….. What a problem in our wet and cold countries, isn't it?
    I have another colour pairing taboo: brown and black. If I would dare pairing those I would have a long jacket (brown) for my black and white legging-type trousers…have not found the courage yet.

    Super chic look Catherine! Of course I love the navy and black colour combination but I also love the proportions of this look. The furry collar is as well such a lovely touch 🙂
