tuesday ten ~ a lot of blue

 i don't just love blue a little... i love blue a lot. the color makes me happy in a way that's sort of weird. :) it can cure my sadness in a heartbeat and make my smile extra big. this week's ten is dedicated to my favorite blue things in life.

1 ~ blue eyes. i guess i am bias because i grew up with a lot of blue eyes in my family, and i have them myself. but besides that ~ i really love the way blue eyes photograph :) don't you love this shot?


2 ~ blue sea. it's so magical! if it wasn't salty i would drink it up. :) it doesn't matter if the ocean is a deep blue or a clear blue, i will always love it just the same. this is my heaven on earth.


3 ~ blue jewelry. i am in l.o.v.e with this necklace. i found this style at angelbdesigns on etsy, and besides this gem, the girl has one amazing shop! so many pretty blue pieces, and i want them all.


4 ~ blue butterflies. did you know there are over fifty different blue butterfly species in the u.s. alone? after sifting through a million photos... i love them all. (well at least the ones that are actually blue ~ some are called blue, but are really brown or grey. eww :) & deceiving)


5 ~ blue skies. you can't help but be in a good mood when the sky is blue and the sun is out. i took this photo when i was laying on a bench outside our bungalow. it is pure happiness to me.


6 ~ blue cars. isn't this car delicious looking? i can see myself cruising in this up (or down) the pch with the wind in my hair! this is the porsche 356 that was featured at la auto show last year. yum!


7 ~ blue nails. any shade will suit my fancy, and i do like all finishes, but i really dig the matte finish on this chic's perfect ten. i think after this post i am off to give myself a fresh coat. :)


8 ~ blue cruisers. if you don't remember (or we weren't friends yet), meet "bardot". the mister got her for me as a gift, and seriously she's perfect. i ♥ our bike rides by the beach more than i can tell you.


9 ~ blue dresses. of course every girls best friend is a good little black dress, but my other best friend is a little blue dress. these pretty ladies were my bridesmaids (their dresses were by j.crew & mine was reem acra).


10 ~ blue doors. when the mister and i finally buy our first home, i would love to paint the front door blue. it might not be as fancy as this door, but i hope it will look somewhat as dreamy.


hope your all off to a great week. i would love to hear what your favorite blue things are! :)

Mmm!! I love blue too!! My brothers used to laugh at me for liking blue! They always said it was a boys color! Ha! I still love blue but not I'm venturing off to green and anything black and white!!

Have a great week!!

blue berries...when they are ripe and in season I can eat a whole pint in a sitting. yum

I a with you. I even painted our baby girl's room blue. Many people thought I was nuts. It's an amazing color. And I am super envious of your bike.

Chrissy said...

Love this post! Love the pic of the eye and the one of the sea especially! And you as a bride with your bridesmaids - so beautiful!!!

I am fan of blue, too. I like a good dark blue shirt, blue scarves, blue dishes and I even have a blue lamp.
I hope you are having a sweet night.

I love the blue nail polish! I love some blue roses. They just look so enchanting!

Rebekah said...

Oh, I love blue. It's my favorite color. That blue matte nail polish looks awesome!

Michaela said...

I adore blue. I have blue/green eyes and when I was little they were BRIGHT blue. You're right- they photograph so well!
I also love blue nail polish...and purple come to think of it (:

Monique said...

Wow, your bridesmaids look lovely. My engagement ring is Sapphire and I've been loving blue a lot more these days. Happy Wednesday!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Looking gorgeous in your Reem Acra! Ok now I am obsessed with that matte blue nail polish. Do you know the brand?

Couldn't agree more. Blue has always been my favorite color! I have been so fortunate to have very blue eyes myself and one of the other great things I love about blue eyes is that, depending on what color top you are wearing, it's like they will change a different shade of blue AND because I live in Florida, right by the Gulf... Blue water is the norm around here [very, very blue] :)

I love that blue eye shot - amazing!! Blue makes me happy!

Ashley and Carli Jo said...

I love blue too! I'm a bit of a stress case, and there is nothing like a cool, light, serene blue to bring me back to sanity. Jeff and I painted our room a gorgeous blue/green/grey shade. We have a blue blanket on our white duvet and thick blue towels in our bathroom. I absolutely adore walking into my calming blue room at the end of the day. Blue = peace.

Thank you for a great post, Jenna!

What a gorgeous shot of you and your girls-you look stunning!

As for my favorite blues, my sweetheart has blue eyes, and he gave me a blue cruiser bike that I absolutely love riding by the ocean! He's a sucker for anything blue, so our closets look like waring gangs (he's all blue, I go for red)!

I obviously love all the blue--that was our wedding color too :) I absolutely LOVE that photo of the blue door. I want one of those in the future too! Love the photo of you and your maids! Have a great day, my dear! xoxo {av}

I love a lot of blue too! The picture of your wedding is so pretty, you were a gorgeous bride! I had blue bridesmaid dresses too (and I have a blue beach cruiser). Blue definitely cures all for me. :)
