Fashionable Friday: In the Navy


I never thought I’d develop a fondness for navy. I was always inclined to favor black or grey but navy looks good with bright pops of color and easily as warm, rich browns. It can be nautical or French with hits of red and stripes, or thoroughly modern with a warm pink. Mixed with Kelly green, it’s totally preppy. And it looks fabulous with lime (I’m just sayin’). I was inspired by this librarian chic ensemble and imagined the best office accessories to compliment it.

* Argh! I hung this whole post on the gorgeous, yellow cab Kaweco Sport which is no longer available. I recommend the Kaweco Art Sport in Amecitrin £89,50, if you’re in the market for a bright yellow pocket fountain pen.
