First things first, Happy Halloween! My god, I am the equivalent of scrooge this year for halloween, I've done absolutely nothing. I hate that as you get older the overloading excitement really just drops off the face of the earth. I mean, is it just me? or has that totally happened to you too? Anyway, enough enough and back to topic!
If you read my last post, you'd have noticed me mention about adding some much needed colour to my wardrobe.To be precise I said "I want to continue to add more colour and print into my wardrobe as I'm going through a bit of a wardrobe loathing phase at the moment" and that saying most definitely still stands!
I went really back to the drawing board and started thinking about some potential key pieces I wanted to add to my wardrobe, without them being your 'classic' colours. I've never been one for a stereotypically 'girly' colour but there's something about pink in generally that has me totally and utterly HOOKED this season. How're you feeling about pink? Do you totally avoid it or are you keep to add more into your wardrobe? I'm still after some more key pieces (jeans, a jumper and maybe a jacket) but for now I'll remain totally smitten with this dreamy Topshop blazer I snapped up.
By no means is it a secret that red and pink are a colour combo to be reckoned with this season and, I can totally see why. I mean, we all have to start slowly, so I opted for a small red accessory to go with my pink on pink look. Neck ties are the perfect way to add a bit of fun and detail to an outfit without being overpowering. It's small things like that, that really start to build up my confidence in mixing colours together. It makes me want to experiment with colours that wouldn't generally be put together.
Prior to now, red and pink were potentially two colours never to be crossed but always so close to each other. I think it goes without saying that, in fact, those borders should have been crossed a long time ago and I'm certain you'll be seeing plenty more of this combo from me.
