Shades of Blue

By Marta @fashion_caramel
This season is all about colors but while you've been seeing mint, neons, orange, black and white, and yellow, did you pay any attention to blue ? Different shades of blue were present on the runways but for some reason blue is not having the same impact as the other season's hits. But as blue is one of my favorite colors I picked here my favorite shades of blue to go through this trend with you: the classic navy blue, the vibrant electric blue and the "oh so famous" pastel blue.
I made a selection of items in each one of these colors, I hope this will convince you to fall into the blue...

How about you, are you into the blue trend ? What is your favorite shade, navy, electric or pastel ?
I'm leaving on holidays very soon and for the next two weeks I will be happily writing blog posts on the beach while drinking a coktail under a mexican sombrero. I should warn you, next posts will for sure be very much summer oriented...
