Do you ever need a dose of colour?
I am a pretty monochrome kind of dresser – with the occasional jewel colour thrown in. I love a black and white mix, live for my all black and even wear the all-white/creme when I’m feeling particularly fit and fab. When it comes to the brights – the pinks, the yellows and violets, the cobalt blues and turquoise greens – I am shy. They have never been my go-to other than in a colourful caftan for sea holidays.
Yesterday, as I potted up a couple of planters for my daughter’s garden I decided a colourful sweater with a pair of white jeans or chinos would be a great idea. Inspiration is coming from the most random of situations now and I am happy to grab it where I can. A few hellebores, some scabiosa and multiple pansy-ish plants made for an unplanned riot of colour that really does look pretty. Why not wear my gardening on my sleeve?
Why not a vibrant pink sweater or cardigan buttoned up? Loose and floppy – even with those khaki cargo pants – could be a welcome change from my everyday. And a bright yellow? I would definitely try that too.
It is now or never to shift my game and move my comfort zone.
Here’s what I am thinking. xv
