I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Navy calms me. By this I mean Navy the colour and not Navy the maritime armed forces teeming with ripped men in uniform (gasp) amongst an assortment of heavy waterborne vessels. Although, I could also consider the latter as a go-to when the going gets tough and all the other shades exasperate me. (If not that, then at least the uniformed parking inspector on my road?) (the lollipop lady??)
I digress.

While the name indeed originates from the midnight blue as worn by soldiers of the British Royal Navy since 1748, to my sartorial purpose navy blue is a ‘safe’ colour, a colour that says “I got this” and pays the bill, the Tom Hiddleston of colours. It might not boldly jump fences, nor would it take you for a night of bar-hopping (there’s a whole other slew of hues for those activities), but you can bet on it when you’re packing for a week-long trip and all you can take is a carry-on and a silk scarf. It probably even has a British accent.
The fact that the La Redoute x Carven collaboration is sports-luxe done in said Tom Hiddleston after Tom Hiddleston just makes it incredibly difficult to choose from, but here are some of my favourite navy blue staples. The fact of the matter is, navy goes with just about any colour, so I suppose it’s all down to you being the Scarlett Johansson, or Sasha Grey, if you will. ;)

  24. Love that coat!


  25. That cropped-top is super cute, love the white bag!

  26. Nice fashion and the photo outfit is beautiful. Thanks

  27. Navy really is a neutral in my opinion – which means it can be worn at any time, any where, for any thing! Of course when you add a bit of sports luxe and some fabulous accessories (like those white mules) you’re really going then!

    I feel the same way about baby pink as you feel about navy – I find it to be a very calming and soothing colour. Something I wish i could wear all the time!


  28. You look gorgeous

  33. Love this post Shini! As for Tom Hiddleston, I’ve put in a request with Abi to arrange something for the next Aptmt edition. He could take care of the entrance, make us some cocktails, or just sit there in a navy suit (the possibilities are endless).
    Have a nice week ahead! Igrien
