Timeless Turquoise

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend!  Mine was full of family and food, so it is back to the gym for me.  Between stuffing my face and playing with my nephews, I couldn’t help but notice all those Easter decorations.  You know the ones I am talking about—the rabbits, chicks and flowers.  All are painted brightly in springtime colors.  Well it was looking at these colors, particularly the turquoise, that inspired this post.

Turquoise is vibrant, bright and just puts me in a good mood.  Plus, it seems to be a universally flattering color.  I wouldn’t describe it as a trend, because it has been a style staple forever.  Seriously, everyone from the ancient Egyptians to the Aztecs wore turquoise.  And can you blame them?  The stone is said to bring good fortune!  Just another reason to add a little turquoise to your wardrobe!

  2. Oh I love turquoise. I want to find at least a t-shirt in the color to wear this summer, and I have a necklace with turquoise beads that needs to be finished. Now if I could just get those fab shoes…

    Love,

  11. I love turquoise. It seems to have a real staying power in my wardrobe. I has become my go to color for adding “POW” to my outfits. I am loving those shoes. But, as I look over the other comments, it looks as though I will have to get these soon. With this many fans, it may become hard to find. Hee hee!

    BTW, I can relate to your comments about Easter. I am having to walk a bit more this week. Darn those chocolate bunnies!!

  14. I have constant love affairs with the color turquoise. It’s such a beautiful color. And those shoes & that bracelet have been added to my “items wanted” folder :-)

  15. I love turquoise too, especially in combination with dark blue. You would love the pants I was wearing yesterday, very bright turquoise!!

  16. My favorite shade of blue is turquoise, and it looks good on everyone. Just bought a turquoise YSL Arty ring and I’ve been wearing it like every day!

    Thanks for your kind comments on my post last week. xo

  17. Gosh, I do love this colour. The Dolce Vita/espadrilles are definitely a favourite! Turquoise reminds me of one of my precious grandmother’s jewellery & how it was significant to her growing up. Great colour!
