Blue and white

There is something so timeless about the combination of blue and white.  It’s serene and elegant, feminine without being girly, evocative of toile de jouy, something blue on brides, and favourite things. Here are some of my blue and white favourites. Can’t you just imagine dancing the night away in these sweet shoes? This bonnet was 20 year old Luciana Foster’s ‘something blue’, worn with a sand coloured silk faille wedding dress, for her 1861 wedding. These undersleeves would add a charming touch of blue  and white to any frock: I positively covet these blue and white pockets, and am going to make my own pair as soon as I find the perfect toile. The blue and white could also be your own secret.  Wouldn’t you just love knowing of the blue lining of these white kid boots?
