color inspiration : navy

There are few colors that I have loved season after season, year after year. Navy is one of them. Although this shouldn't come as a surprise as I have shared my love for all things nautical here, and navy is a big part of that. I just think navy is a staple, a neutral, but also a color that stands out. Plus, it's classy as hell.  And yes, I do wear it with black. Why not?

It's been in the last year or so that I have really started to get a grasp of what my own personal style is, and yet it is still constantly changing. So for me, a color that lasts through this is pretty impressive. I remember in junior high I used to wear my favorite tshirt as often as I possibly could. It was navy and it said "Nueva York" across the front. I'm pretty sure I wore it till it fell apart. 

Here are some inspirational pictures featuring one of my true loves, navy. Enjoy.

Is there a color you have always loved? What about a color you used to hate but now like? I would love to hear what you guys think.

I love navy too! I think mustard yellow has been a color that I've always loved. I tend to over-do it come autumn...

I love navy! Mostly because of how good it looks with red or yellow. :)

Mmm yes. My favorite is always dark purple.. From my bed sheets to my shirts. Ballerina pink is a recent favorite for me, and goes so well with navy blue!
