I Prefer Navy Blue

Because I'm so pale, and getting paler by the year now that my hair is starting to go quite grey, black makes me look very washed out.  I've always preferred navy blue and these days even more so.  Last year I was looking for a navy blue cardigan and couldn't find one in the usual shops I use (for 'usual shops' read budget priced).  This year there does seem to be more navy blue about and I have seen a nice cardigan I want to buy later this month when my pocket money has accumulated enough.

Here's a top and skirt I've had for a while that I want the navy blue cardigan to go with...
I don't like wearing sleeveless tops but couldn't resist this one, love the style of it.  A nice cardigan will make it more wearable for me.

That's a very pretty outfit but have you thought about a white cardigan to go with it instead of navy? It would keep the outfit more Springlike perhaps. Or better still, buy both. If white is too bright and black is too dark, try a beige with navy.
I am at the same stage of life as you (I think) and am having just the same thoughts and dilemmas.

I saw your last comment if I could see is copy myself. I spend all my extra money on my dogs and vintage clothes. It's pricey but I love it I look at it as a hobby
