Cobalt, Sapphire, or Royal?

It's the weekend fashion friends!

I hope you all have some fun plans or major relaxation on tap for your weekend.
Yesterday, I wore my favorite color to work....BLUE!  I love blue...all shades, but my favorite would be ...
Cobalt...or is it sapphire?  I call it Royal Blue.

I've seen this shade called a few things and I am ashamed to admit, I don't know the difference (if any)between all the shades and it is supposed to be my favorite. Remember back in the day when Yellow was yellow, red was red and blue was blue?  Then crayola wanted to get all fancy and come up with all these 'new' colors which lead way to the fashion world getting crazy with it. 


 Melon and eggplant are more than just things you eat.  They are now colors that should be in your wardrobe.  How 'bout that canary?  Nope not talkin' about Tweety.  I am talking about that color that makes for some fierce color blocking with some honeysuckle and mint


I struggle with knowing what the new and more fashion forward name to call each color. 
And then when I start to get it, the fashion industry changes it up. 
Ecru, blush, ivory, cream and beige is all off-white to me. 


I guess if I am honest with myself, it will take me a minute to understand that chartreuse is more than just green (or is it a yellow?) and periwinkle is not quite lavender... or is it?  Oh, forget it!
  

Will I be less of a fashionista if I just say what I know each color to be...blue, red and yellow?  It may not sound all fancy but you all will get the point, right?  I give it to all you fashion bloggers who are on top of your color name game.  It makes for a good read when all the fancy color names pop up.  


I will just continue to get my color lessons from all of you who know what the heck you're talking about.  I will continue to try but if I don't get it quite right, do forgive me...please!

Thank you for listening to me admit my fashion blogger shortcomings...lol

As always, thanks for stopping by.
Stay fly and stay tuned!

  7. Lol! Love this post. I can't keep up with all of these crazy color names either. If I can't remember the true name of a color I always go back to the basics. Blue is blue, red is red, and so on. Lol! Cute outfit!

    Stay beautiful! *Smooches*
