OOTD: cerulean

Happy Wednesday, friends.

My favorite color is cerulean. It's a shade of blue-green that I've always adored.

Tidbit - it's my most favorite color in a box of Crayola Crayons.

Cerulean blue can range from being a bit more cobalt-y (less green) to almost teal (lots of green). I've got two outfits today that feature a sort of cerulean blue color.

The first outfit is my "smart" look. It's a classic combo of pencil skirt, blazer and glasses! :) Forgive the lack of makeup...I took these photos after a long day.

Also, in case you were wondering, my hair is darker. This is actually my natural color...achieved with the beauty of lowlights. I usually brighten it up in the summer and in the fall/winter let it go rogue.

Pencil skirt: Burlington Coat Factory (similar, similar) // Tank // Blazer // Shoes: Marshall's (similar)

The next outfit is a bit more of a copycat look of one of my favorite actresses, Zooey (pronounced like Zoe) Deschanel. I simply adore her and New Girl is one of my newest fave shows. Her style in the show is so much like my own that when I snagged this dress on clearance from The Limited, I knew I had to try and replicate a look of hers.

You see, like me, Zooey is fond of mixing shades of blue and green together.

See, we are style twins! Peep some of her blue/green/teal looks below...

I do often find myself asking if what I'm wearing is something Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel) would wear. If the answer is yes, then I know it's gonna be a good outfit day! 

Do you have a color you love to wear? Or, more importantly, what's your favorite crayon color? ;)

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.



  1. Until recently I would have said turquoise was my favorite color. It was almost the only true color that I wore. But now that I've gotten over my color phobia I wear lots of different colors (and patterns!). I think my current favorite is deep purple (plum).

    I love your hair, the houndstooth tank, and New Girl (next week!).

  2. cerulean is most defintely my favorite crayon color! ;)
    But my favorite color to wear is black or gray. And I'm really into coral according to my closet!
    And I too have a love for Zooey. She's my fave!

    1. oooh, coral is a new fave of mine too. it really goes with so much!

    2. Coral! I love it but don't wear it much because it's not the most flattering color on me. However, I have a coral bracelet that I wear all the time. It goes with everything! I especially like it with plum. :)

  3. Hi April! Love your blog...and I'm not sure what the name of your blog stands for as I need to do some more reading {and I will be doing more reading here} but I LOVE the name!

    Love your outfits and I love your take on Zooey D's outfits! She's so quirky and cute and you look great!

    Kim M.

    1. Thanks Kim! There's not a whole lot to my name choice, but you can read about it in this post:

      Thanks for reading!

  4. Both those blues are absolutely wonderful and they look so good on you!

  5. I love that first outfit. I've become a big fan of pencil skirts, though I only own one. And it's hard to describe my favorite color, but it could be called an electric blue or a blue-teal.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
