Color Obsessions: Navy Blue

Navy is one of our all-time favorite colors! It is less harsh than black, and it looks great on everyone. We're thrilled to see more of it in stores lately!
This 3/4 sleeve jacket with a ruffled collar is such a versatile piece! Wear it to the office or to dinner at night with white jeans.
This cardigan with a ruffled collar is so pretty! We love the feminine details like the fitted waist. Rebecca Taylor Crochet Sweater Top
We are in love with this Deneuve Dress from Tory Burch. It is perfect for work or any daytime events, from lunch meetings to church to even an interview. The ruffles and 3/4 sleeves give it such a ladylike feel. We think Audrey or Jackie (or Catherine) would love this!
Tory Burch Deneuve Stretch Poplin Dress How cute is this boyfriend cardi from TB?! The gold buttons and waist pockets are adorable! It works great with a dress or more casually with jeans.
So fun for summer! We love this cutaway tank to show off your shoulders.
J.Crew Cotton Petal Cami And we love the tulle flowers around the neckline of this fab v-neck sweater! Skip the necklace and just wear simple stud earrings.
J.Crew Petal Sweater This navy and white zig zag cardigan jacket from The Gap is so cute! It's so perfect for those cooler days that we vaguely remember, and it looks alot more expensive than it is! Once again, we would pair with white jeans and yellow flats!

Gap Shrunken Shawl Cardigan
It's not so clear from this picture, but the gathered fabric rosettes on this stunning navy cocktail dress make it look like couture! This dress is probably best on you skinny minnies, since the fabric roses add an extra layer. So pretty! J.Crew Silk Dupioni Rosette Dress Such a cute little top. We love the feminine detail of the ruffles around the neckline.
J.Crew Cotton Ruffle Tank How fun and flirty is this little tank top with bow detailing? Great price too!
We love the nautical stripes on this bikini! J.Crew Harbor Stripe Swimsuit
These navy printed flats w/ bamboo accents are the cutest thing we've ever seen! We'd wear them to work with a navy pencil skirt or with one of the shirts pictured above and white jeans.
These slingbacks are perfect for dressing up! Normally a suede sole makes us hesitate since they can discolor and look icky pretty easily, but in a dark navy, we think these will be just fine!
J.Crew Nicolette Heels This satin minaudiere with a jeweled clasp is too pretty for words! And it's only $78! Take that, Judith!

This Lanvin Reporter Bag is so stylish and fun. Between the patent, the chain strap, and the grosgrain bow, there is alot going on; but it's so tastefully done that it really works!
Lanvin Leather Reporter Bag
This leather satchel with gold studs from Miu Miu is so fabulous! It's a great size for the office, and we love that the studs add a fun element without being too over-the-top. And of course, navy and gold is one of our favorite combos!
How cute is this Tory Burch tote? It is that perfect size for work, for a carry on, for a weekend tote. We have bags this size that we carry all the time!
Tory Burch Canvas Tote
It takes a daring soul to put navy on the walls! But it can look so fabulous!!!
Navy grasscloth walls with a beautiful mahogany desk and funky desk chair. Perfection.
Drake Design Associates
Navy and orange, one of our favorite combos!
This library is just stunning. We love the painted paneling (don't rip it down!), the animal print rug, the built-ins! Todd Alexander Romano Designs
So what say you? Is navy the new black?

navy is slowly becoming a staple like black and white and creme.
