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. Everything in fashion is speeding up, including the time it takes for a trend to appear, disappear, and reappear.

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