Once you visit Marrakesh and the Majorelle gardens you will never forget the intense blue and bright yellow covering the house and contrasting with the green plants in the garden, it is spectacular. And how cool is it to wear these memories on your nails ?
But majorelle blue (= electric blue) is not only nice on nails, it's perfect to add some color to an outfit. My preference goes for combining it with neutrals (grey, beige, taupe) or with black and white for a super chic look. I'm less fan of color blocking with bright colors.

For the moment I'm completely obsessed with majorelle, I have it on my nails and I've been day-dreaming about a pair of trousers and shoes and basically everything that I have selected here.

How about you, have you fallen for this gorgeous blue yet?
ps: some weeks ago I did a post on shades of blue where I talked about electric blue. I'm sorry if you felt that I was repeating myself (I probably was) but majorelle is enough color to be mentioned (at least) twice.
