Summer Blues

With the lazy hazy days stretched out before us, there is one colour that embodies the feeling of summertime more than any other.  Blue is the most popular colour worldwide, and has long since been associated with the sultry season for its relaxed, soothing appeal and cooling effects.  Add in a wash of denim and it becomes even more the signature colour of casual summertime living.

This season Debbie Bliss highlights her favorite shades of blue in four new designs styled for dress and play –
