In the Navy

So yesterday I was wearing a navy and white chevron maxi. I actually felt somewhat decent wearing it, which is rare these days seeing I am as large as a boat! 🙂

I got to thinking as I was getting dressed how much I love to wear bright colors with it. I think a lot of people look at navy as such a bland color and tend to pair it with white or grey (which I do sometimes too!), but it totally doesn’t have to be!

One of my fave color combos is navy and orange. I think it just looks awesome together. It’s ok if you don’t- we can agree to disagree 🙂

 Dress: Old Navy Maternity, $34.94. Order here

Sandals: Target, last year. Still have similar in stores

Denim jacket: Gap

There are other colors that I personally also think look great with navy…take a look…

Navy and Yellow? Absolutely. Check out the pieces here

Navy and Green…try it!! I wouldn’t necessarily wear the bracelet and the necklace together-just wanted to show options. Stick with one statement piece in that particular color whether its your neckalce, shoes, earrings, etc. Check it out here

Last pairing- Navy and Coral. Love it.

Obviously not everyone of you has a dress like this, especially maternity! Go look in your closet. Really…..go look.

Do you ahve a navy cardi? Even a navy t shirt or tank top. Put it on. Experiment with colors. Throw on that yellow scarf you have, or wear those green sandals that are collecting dust because you don’t know what to wear them with. Go do it! One last pic to motivate you to give this a whirl…
