Blue Blue and very blue

My typical work jacket, black sleeveless cowl neck so the sheer arms of the jacket looked enhanced and two separate infinity scarves made from the width of the fabrics so they could double and lay above the cowel of the shirt... The blue was an illusion but matched the jacket and the floral was also a textured chiffon but the perfect blues... the pants you can barely see in the picture but were lightweight scuba, my usual tubins pattern and I made my earrings a little different and hand sewn the trimmed edges of the jacket and put 3 (2 clear beveled and 1 blue beveled swavorski crystals sewn in the center... a pearl with a jeweled butterfly I had in my toolbox and a small sea shell glued on- also in my toolbox of odds and ends.

My earrings hang on a sheet of plastic canvas to be easy to find.

Different textures and shadings of Royal Blue
