Repeat, rewear, make it your own…
I posted an almost identical outfit about 8 months ago, in spring. Well, the same skirt, the same coat, and the same sunglasses. Let’s call this the winter version of the outfit. I’m wearing a cashmere jumper, after all.
Speaking of winter… Where has all the snow gone? Well, we had full-on winter for a couple of weeks, then some slush and sleet for a week, and then the snow was gone and we’re back to warmer temperatures. Let’s enjoy while it lasts. Because winter will be back, with a vengeance…
So I’m back to one of my favourite colour combinations: blue and green. Well, the coat is teal, and the scarf is aqua (which is basically just a lighter, sort of very diluted shade of teal)… In my book, teal (or aqua) is more green than blue. Yes, I know, some people say it’s blue… Let’s put it this way: teal is both darker and greener than turquoise. And turquoise is closer to blue than green, but definitely more green than, say, sky blue. Or my jumper here. Which is blue, but a warm shade of blue, which means that it’s closer to green but it’s not turquoise. And now you’re starting to get a headache… So, let’s just say that it’s probably a matter of personal taste and very subjective where we draw the line between blue and green…
Never mind… I have neither the interest nor the patience to analyse this further. After all, the only thing that matters is that the colours in this outfit provide just enough contrast yet blend in harmoniously.

Where do you stand on the blue-green conundrum? Is teal blue or green?
