Cobalt is a color I like and wear, though the brightest tones can be a bit too strong for me. I especially like it with black, white and grey, so when today's formula featured some of those, I knew I had to try them, and today's activities allowed me to try three of the suggestions..

I am about to go meet my coworkers for a little happy hour meeting, only the second of the kind since pandemic and WFH, and since it is a rare occasion, I baked a cake for it. For the occasion I am wearing a version of the third formula. Early this morning I had to run to a grocery store for a last minute item I needed for cake decoration, for which I wore a version of formula #1. For WFH today, I actually wore real clothes ( and not my typical loungewear), version of #4, which turned out to be a great time saver when I had to run an unexpected 10 min errand outside this afternoon.

1) (#1-3) is my version of cobalt and dark denim, consisting of: black sweater with faux fur panel, dark cropped kick flare jeans with fun button detail, black booties, faux leather beret and studded bag, and cobalt short puffer.
2) (#4-5) is my version of cobalt and fuchsia: cobalt velveteen pants, fuchsia sweater, scarf with both colors. For the unexpected outdoor run, added navy booties, bag and coat (that needs steaming after being taken out of the storage).
3) (#6-10) is my version of cobalt in a pattern, based on glen plaid pants with a bit of cobalt in them. They were combined with cobalt cashmere sweater, polka dot scarf, and lots of black: booties, shimmery coat, beret, bag.
4) (#11-12) - the cake in question: triple chocolate mousse cake, recipe link below, with addition of drip-down chocolate ganache and Lindt truffles:

(I have to run go to the HH now, will add all the items/finds when I come back home this evening.

ETA: added the finds only the next morning. The HH was a success and lasted for 6h - it seems we were all really craving some social interaction).
