What do you think about when you choose what colours to wear every day?
As I have recently got more into my wardrobe again, I have been experimenting with clothes which I haven't worn in a long time and begun to remember what makes me feel good. I am noticing that the relationship between colours and with clothes and how they make you feel is all but simple.
I am slowly beginning to abandon blue, which will be a shock to anyone reading my blog as you know that I am a serious navy wearer. Of course my navy jeans and I will never be parted but I am sick to the back teeth of electric blue.
I am moving more towards greys and greens. Grey makes me feel like me and green makes my eyes look good (although right now I don't have much of it, apart from one khaki jacket).
I have replaced blocks of colour with colourful accents. Blocks of bright colour make me feel like a five year old.
The therapeutic properties of pink will always remain close to my heart, but I have to make it look edgy. I just feel like a princess-y girly-girl otherwise. But pink on the lips is compulsory.
White is just the opposite of me. For years I struggled with the elegance of beige and camel and snow white, willing it to work for me. But it just doesn't work. If I ever get married, maybe I'll wear red. That's a colour which makes me feel strong, and which I don't have nearly enough of.
Black. Oh, black. Black always seems to get such a bad rep for being boring but when I wear it I boring is the last thing I feel. As long as I don't wear it with denim.
