I’ve not done a color crush in a while and was working on one for today but I’ll share it another time. I’m now obsessed with a new color after attending the inauguration on Friday: Powder Blue. You could also call it by one of these names Robin’s Egg, Icy Blue, Sky Blue, Pale Blue. Which ever you choose makes no difference. It is gorgeous by any name. My daughter and I were fortunate enough to attend the inauguration and see this beautiful Ralph Lauren creation in person. None of the photographs truly do the color justice.
Fashion tends to transcend party lines and I think both sides of the aisle can agree that the cashmere dress and matching bolero jacket worn by First Lady Melania Trump was stunning. It was both modern and traditional at the same time. It is being compared to the classic style worn by Jackie Kennedy Onassis to JFK’s inauguration. Lauren has now dressed five First Ladies in classic American style.
I’ve curated a boutique below filled with this gorgeous hue. I am very much a lover of neutrals but saw this sweater in person and, of course, purchased the gray. Now, I’ll be heading back to get it. It is extremely soft and the color just a bit lighter than Melania’s inauguration suit. I just may be adding a few other blue pieces to my closet as well. One of my favorite clutches from GiGi New York comes in this pretty color. Speaking of GiGi New York, they are having an Insider Sale! Click here to gain access.

Thank you so much for saying something nice about the first lady. I am so tired of the vitriol. I hope you don’t get attacked. I thought her outfit was stunning.
Love the color and the new First Lady! She is beautiful and elegant and I am beyond thrilled that she will be in the White House for the next 8 years!
