As you may have noticed, I’m a big fan of colour: colour-blocking, clashing, accenting, flashing, indeed a veritable riot of colour is what I feel most at home wearing. So much so, that this is one of my more conservative outfits (although today my bleached white-blonde bob does have additional pink streaks in it, thanks to Kevin Murphy’s wipe-on-wash-out Color Bug)!
My hot pink 3/4 length coat is from Karen Millen, the skinny, high-waisted, zip-flare jeans are from the 1971 Reiss range, the orange jumper’s from Primark, and the leopardprint platform ponyskin shoes are by Deena & Ozzy courtesy of Urban Outfitters (see previous post). High Street heaven!
With today’s sky being a typically British grey, rain-threatening day, I opted to wear my sunny yellow Karen Millen coat with hint of hot pink flared dress underneath.
The nude Carvela heels nicely accentuate the pale stripe encircling the coat’s waist (at the top of the photo), and its cuffs and button-holes.
I’ve actually been thinking of changing the black buttons to a bright pink, as to me the black seems jarringly out of place against both such pale material, and such a cheerful yellow colour too.
I’ve also streaked my bleached white-blonde shoulder-length hair with the pink Kevin Murphy Color Bug, which is a genius invention, like powdered eye-shadow but for hair (“wipe on, wash out, change your hair colour as quick as your make-up”).
What better antidote to the Monday blues than to wear your own shocking ray of sunshine?!
