♥ i've got the winter blues.

lately this cold, endless stretch of dismal winter days
has really been getting to me. the only thing to look forward to
is more cold days and there seems to be nothing sunny in sight.
i keep taking deep breaths and sighing for no reason and
all i want to do is keep getting hugs from my boyfriend, which is
the only thing that seems to calm me.

but when life hands you lemons, you must make lemonade
so i have decided to turn my winter blues into a post
celebrating none other than the color blue,
which is going to be big in fashion and interior design this year.

according to pantone, the color of 2010 is a reigning member of the blue family,
turquoise, which " transports us to an exciting, tropical paradise while
offering a sense of protection and heeling in stessful times."

i am also starting to see alot more of the amparo blue,
which has also been named by pantone as one of the top ten colors for
women's fashion this spring.

designers have been raving about the return of the true blue,
which has been hard to come by in the interior design industry
that has been offering nothing but aqua for the past few years.

the latest issue of house beautiful celebrates the color blue
and all of glorious the shades in between.

i love the use of charming blue floral prints in this los angeles home.
they are quiet and serene and i doubt anyone living in these rooms
would ever have the blues for too long.

here are some of the kind of blues that i wouldn't mind having:

when i was younger, i had a pair of blue patent leather platforms
that seemed to make every outfit a little bit more exciting.
say hello to what would be a fabulous new replacement.
hello, moschino!

i love this adorable retro bathing suit from anthropologie.
maybe i could wear it in my bath tub until summer comes?

which would just add a big pop of color to any look.

or maybe i should get me this breakfast at tiffany's sleeping mask
and hibernate until spring thaw?
