Because Blair just can’t control herself, today you’re all going to get another mini history lesson. You might remember having to sit through the background of chambray a while ago- haha, just kidding we don’t expect you to remember 2014!- but today we’re all about navy. It’s riveting stuff, the history of colors and textiles.
To cut to the chase, navy is an essential (if you ask us) tone of blue when it comes to anything and everything nautically inspired. We would argue that for anybody, brand, or product line, to call themselves truly nautically inspired they absolutely must incorporate this standby tone. The term “navy blue” first came to be in 1748 to name the color used for the British Royal Navy uniforms worn by officers, according to Wikipedia. Alright, alright, my research isn’t that in-depth, guys… we’ve got a business to run, too!
As it turns out, given the nature of naval uniforms and the fading that occurs, navy came to be almost ubiquitous with black, so you will notice our navy is a very deep, dark blue in keeping with this historical definition of the color. And, as such, our true navy Infinity Tote, with a guest appearance by a certain spotlight-hungry Buoy Block Clutch, deserved an equally authentic opportunity to shine… and where better to do that than the first lighthouse completed under the federal government’s ownership in the great USA? Thank you, Portland Headlight!
Shortly after this shoot, Blair announced that she had fallen so in love with her prop that she was adopting a new navy Infinity Tote for herself. If you’re a navy lover too, pop over to the shop (button on the right or here) to scoop one up for yourself!
Always koo-koo for navy, Blair + Hayley
p.s. Did you think we were going to say cocoa cocoa puffs? Also… 5 bonus points to those of you who can spot Hayley in one of the photos!
