Shades Of Blue

My recent trip to Crete has reignited my love for the colour blue. I always take inspiration from the world around me and recently that just so happens to have included many shades of blue.

Since I’ve been back from my travels there’s been a significant lack of a bright blue sky. It’s really grey here in the UK and as I’m typing this it’s raining heavily outside. Every morning I wake up, open the blind and hope for a bright blue sky.

I’m still waiting.

This hasn’t stopped me from embracing shades of blue though. I’m very much combining it into my outfits, my photography and home. I’m still on a summer high from Crete and a little rain isn’t going to get in my way.

Here are some of my photos from my #shadesofblue theme on Instagram.
