I love shades of blue too. Makes me think of the ocean and sky. Very calming.
I also love jewel tone colors (emerald, purple, ruby, cobalt) like these earrings which are favs. Deeper colors are better on me and make me feel happy.

top left and right are just playing with various color and tint combinations. Looking for good contrast.
