Let’s – I think we are allowed.
We have talked colour – the yellows and pinks in particular – and we will come back to them but what about our all white spread? I like the multi tones of whites, winter and spring, especially jeans and a pretty shirt or sweater. A blouse with a little detail and a cotton sweater with a bit of detail – even throw both on together for texture.
This gorgeous boutique on Portobello Road next to a great restaurant called Gold inspired me to look at the whites in my wardrobe. The shabby-chic nature of this establishment has me looking forward to the whiter side of fashion.
Blending is what style and fashion talk right now.
It seems to be about a mix of everything – the formal against the informal and the silk against the linen. What was once considered quirky or “not for me” is high on our fashion agenda. I have worn my save-it-for-best-dress with my least fancy trainers and my voluminous silk blouse with my sweats. Why not add rubber boots into the mix; I have seen a lot of that and am sorely tempted.
Check out the Cavendish Blue and the Dark Olive colour ways for fun.
There is a negative to wearing light everything apart from attracting the messy and that’s the psychological. When I wear lighter colours and in particular the neutrals I need to be feeling my trimmest. This is totally ridiculous and unnecessary but it is my truth.
I need to get over that or stop eating pasta for lunch ;) Both might be the answer and this would help. xv
