A Fashion Favorite- Blue And White

Oh…the beauty of blue and white. It really is hard to beat. The two colors look great on everyone- men, women and kids. A simple wardrobe of pieces can be bought inexpensively. And every year you can easily add to it. For this small photo shoot I did just that. I pulled from my own closet a few favorites and mixed in some new blue and white purchases.
