This is another casual outfit for a very important dinner I went to recently with my boyfriend and Fossil. Blue was basically the unspoken recurring theme of the night, as this was the color largely associated to the brand hosting the said event.
I love how rich the cobalt color of the skort is. It stands out on its own. Despite the bottom’s simple and subtle design, it still manages to become the focal point of the ensemble. Lesson learned: I guess sometimes, all you need is a vibrant color to draw attention and make a statement.
That said, I was never really the mainstream kid who liked the color Blue while growing up. I had a lot of classmates back then who chose Blue when asked which color is their favorite! I guess, back then, Blue was “cool” (it is, of course, literally).
I don’t quite recall what I’d put in slum books when asked what my favorite color was. I do recall that I didn’t have a particular favorite color. I was a pragmatic child, I liked all colors… why settle for one when all was available? It just boggled me, really.
Of course, I do have practical preferences… I’m a huge fan of Black and White (most of my readers know this as I’ve mentioned it countless amount of times). It’s clean, it’s crisp, and it’s no-nonsense. Later on, I added Gold into the roster.
It’s not to say I don’t like other colors, of course. I love colors… I love each and every one of them, in every pantone. Every time I see something that’s a medley of color, I get a visual orgasm. If you go through my iPhone’s photo album, you will see a variety of palettes saved.
So how can I play favorites, seriously? Why limit yourself to just one (anything) when you can have a variety? I guess I’m really pragmatic as a person… or an opportunist or both! Then again, it’s being in that state of limbo, in that state of uncertainty, that you can allow yourself to fully exercise creativity.
Call me a Bohemian or whatnot but the tendency of having favorites is to “favor” them all the time. When that happens, you create a predictable pattern, and remember… predictability is the enemy of creativity.
That said, I want to bask in this particular moment where my eyes are visually enjoying the Cobalt Blue.
Until next time (I spout more nonsense)!
