All the Pretty Horses

Why does Alejandra wear so much blue?

When Grady Cole saw her the first time she was in a blue sweater and when they meet each other again, when she gets off of the train she is also wearing a blue dress. So, I was wondering what blue on Alejandra Symbolized.

Also, Alejandra’s eyes are blue as well...

Blue is often connected with Alejandra but I'm not sure if there is a lot of symbolism to this. Blue can be a symbol of renewal, hope, and light. Alejandra is beautiful an enigmatic. She represents renwal for John Grady: she is light and hope. The color blue is very much connected with this.
