166 days to go. The Wow Factor: Michelle Obama Wardrobe Challenge Day 3
When my youngest son comes home from school he shows me his little book of Wow words.
These are new, exciting words which will enhance his vocabulary.
And I love finding new wow words too.
My wow word of the moment is Cerulean.
I watched The Devil Wears Prada at the weekend and listened to Miranda's rant about Andreas' lump blue sweater.
I looked it up - probably most of you know already - and loved the word.
Cerulean may be applied to a range of hues from deep blue, sky-blue, bright blue or azure through to greenish blue.
Apparently the word is probably derived from the Latin word caeruleus, "dark blue, blue or blue-green", which in turn probably derives from caelulum, diminutive of caelum, "heaven, sky".
Then, just as always - the word is everywhere.
Kasmira is having a Cerulean Week.
I also discovered I had a Cerulean cardigan too.
Just like Michelle!
Check out the fantastic Polyvore Imogen has created for me.
Guess what next week's challenge will be!
Today I am wearing:
black boots - dorothy perkins
dress - new look
cardigan - principles petite
belt - marks and spence
pearls- hong kong
