If memory serves, cobalt was the “color of the season” about three seasons back. Guess what? Multiple magazines have declared it the color of the season for this coming fall.

Lucky for me, I just kept on wearing cobalt the whole danged time, oblivious and happy.

I wore this bright but comfy outfit for a retreat day of planning with my women’s leadership program board – more on that soon! I adore the color mix in this cardigan, and was delighted to find that the coral in the print matched this coral dress so beautifully.

Washable, lightweight, comfy, and SO cute. Check out the back cutout:
