Heightening style. Igniting senses.

HUES OF BLUES

One of the best calming, yet uplifting colors is the world of blues.  It’s a shame that Blues music is typically known for being so melancholic, because the color itself and what it does to our mood can be so therapeutic.  Then mix it shades of white- forget it, it’s simply heavenly.


Travel Treasure

One of the easiest ways to put some exotic vibes into your living space or wardrobe is to add a splash of mid-far eastern flare.  If you’re not into overly dramatic jewel tones, soft shades of blue are gems of their own- sometimes it’s the subtle statements that make the most impact.

Cool Factor

With summer around the corner, lets look at ways to “stay cool”. Yes, pun intended!  Literally speaking, get your blue & white on with some homemade popsicles.  Then look just as cool with fresh headphones while you listen to music, podcasts, or for those moments you just want some self-time & need to block out the noise!

Popsicles:

-Set of popsicle molds (From Bed Bath & Beyond to Ikea)
-Fresh blueberries (so so yummy, healthy & in season now)
-Coconut milk or water (my faves are Harmless or Silk Almond Coconut Blend)
Feeling like a summer cocktail?  Make this concoction into ice cubes and pour over any coconut rum.  If your mocking it (like me these days!) pour over any coconut drink or even plain water.
Headphones:
Bose, $250


Greek ChicTravel goals = Mykonos. The simplicity of white buildings & blueness of the water in photos is breathtaking- which says that in person it’s truly magical.  Switch up the mint shade we’ve seen the last few seasons by showing off an ultra luxe indigo manicure while holding a not-so-literal nautical phone case.

Natures InputFinally, let’s take blue & white out of the literal and mix it up with some animal inspired prints.  A perfect accessory is the unexpected accessory.  A statement shoe or and an embroidered scarf is all  are just a few ideas to put into an outfit to make turn heads.  Less more is always more for this animalistic statement!
