Cobalt has always been one of my favorite colors, but for some reason, besides a recent pair of shoes, my closet was completely cobalt free. So when I saw this top during the Nordstrom sale, I had to snag it. And even though prices have gone up, it’s still a good price, and it’s the perfect loose, flowy top that is easily dressed up or dressed down. 
We’re off to San Diego today for a little getaway while Philip works — B learned to swim without floaties at my parent’s house last week, and Fos graduated to a puddle jumper floatie (instead of a baby inner tube), so they’re both obsessed with swimming right now. I see lots of pool time all weekend while daddy works. Make sure to follow along on Instagram (@merricksart)! 
Happy Thursday!

    I have two dresses in cobalt… somehow I forgot that I had bought one and loved the second one so much. I don’t regret either purchase. It’s probably one of my favorite colors too.
