Quote of the Day: “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.”  William Arthur Ward

I read that blue is the #1 favorite color of all people.  Maybe that’s why blue jeans are so popular all over the world?  Blue tends to be easy to wear  and you can combined it with all other clothing/colors. In fact, if you check your closet right now I bet you have many light blue pieces.  Maybe my family is strange (understatement), but all three of us seem to have an abundance of the color.  So I suggest to throw it on and try some different color mixes with us!  Now today’s light blue and white combination may not be a very unique combination but it’s a great place to start!

50’s Light Blue (Sweater): I just finished knitting this sweater about a month ago.  I was so happy it actually fit (for those of you who knit, you know what I mean).  Since it doesn’t have buttons or any kind of closure, I used one of my dad’s old cuff links to hold it together.

60’s Light Blue (T-Shirt): White jeans are such an easy way to make any other color stand out! We added a print blouse & ombre scarf for interest, and she’s good to go!

70’s Light Blue (Trousers): So I’m not a huge fan of elasticized waistbands on trousers, but the material looks almost linen like and they actually fit mom well.  Thus, I didn’t fight her about keeping them in her wardrobe.  I did warn you that my mother has an owl fetish, right?

For your shopping pleasure, I hunted down some light blue jewelry

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Who could not like blue and white? So pretty. Love your sweater and cufflink, and Nancy’s scarf. Blue is Charlotte’s color. (You can’t tell the pants have elastic waist, so OK in my book.)

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m glad to hear you say that about the elastic waistband, Kathleen!! I usually try to get mom to throw those pants out—but these didn’t seem quite as bad!
      Of course, my theory is that if you have a great focal point elsewhere—then no one will notice anyways!! 🙂

  • Nancy Siegel

    The jewelry is outstanding as well as all three outfits. Aunt Nancy

    • Don’t you just love jewelry…it always fits!!! Thanks Auntie!

  • You are right about blue looking good on every complexion and that is why it is so universally liked. Great job on knitting the sweater!

  • Such a pretty color! I really want to get a pair of blue trousers.

  • Blue is my favourite colour. It reminds me of the sky and ocean and everything that feels calm.

    Congrats on knitting a sweater! Impressive!

    I do love your Mom’s outfit and that owl necklace.

    • Blue is mom’s fave color too—see, they’re right, it’s the #1 favorite color!! Thanks for reading!!

  • Wow, I love the looks, my favorite is the one for the 70s!

    What a gorgeous sweater! And I love the idea of using a cufflink to button up the sweater. I am very beginning knitter and have not graduated from scarves yet.

    • Thanks Alice! How fun that you knit too….if you need any help with your knitting, feel free to email me!!

  • Beautiful job on your sweater! How long did it take you to knit it? Although all three of you look great, Nancy’s outfit is my favorite this time around. 🙂

    • A sweater usually takes at least 2 months to knit—of course, I usually have a variety of projects going at one time (this is quite normal with all knitters—but you could also say ADD). I like Nancy’s outfit too because it has more color involved! 🙂
