I have a navy problem.
I’ve been assessing what’s in my closet to see what I have and what I will need when the weather finally warms up. And when I started to look at all the navy tees, sweaters, blouses….I realized I may have a problem!
But I think it’s a good problem because… I LOVE NAVY. It is probably my favorite neutral, except for maybe grey. Or maybe they’re tied. But either way, I love navy because it provides such flexibility in my wardrobe which is so important to me. When you have kiddos to constantly shop for, a mama’s wardrobe budget shrinks very fast. Investing in navy pieces allows my wardrobe to get a lot of use and I think it’s because of two specific reasons:
- Navy literally goes with any color. ANY color. I even have paired it with black.
- Navy can be worn in any season. My favorite pieces in my wardrobe are ones that I can wear at least half the year. Living in the Northeast, you can’t get away with wearing some items all 12 months. But many I can wear at least 3 out of the 4 seasons, which make them worth investing in!
As we get ready to rotate our wardrobes for Spring and Summer, my favorite combo that I consistently go to is navy and white. The pics below feature two new navy tops and two denim bottoms that I recently picked up from J.Crew. All 4 pieces will be perfect for wear now/wear later outfits!
The eyelet sweatshirt will be great to wear sooner than later, but will also transition well to wearing with shorts and skirts. The eyelet knit top can be layered now with a jacket or open weave cardigan and will look great on it’s own in warmer months. And you can’t go wrong pairing white denim skinny jeans or shorts with navy, or any color! Pair the outfits with neutral or metallic sandals, throw on some classic or fun jewelry and you are ready!
