This is the first of what will, hopefully, be a little stream of spring/summer styling posts. I’ve been planning these for a little while now and was excited to get going with them.
If you follow me over on Instagram, and have watched one of my multiple rants on my stories, you will know that I’ve been laptop-less over the past month or so. My boyfriend, Matthew, was in the final stages of his dissertation when his laptop decided to crash and burn, so being the life-saver I am (aren’t I just so nice? Ha!), I let him use mine to get his work finished. I was more then happy to let him use it, but I was getting itchy fingers to get back on it and write something style based, especially with the changing season approaching.
So to kick things off I’m going to talk about pink. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with this colour throughout my entire life. There is something about it that, as a teenager, completely repulsed me. When I was 14/15 I was headed towards a pretty goth themed rebellion and the idea of the colour pink gracing my wardrobe was a big no no. I think, as we all do at some point, I was at my most rebellious then, a period in which I shaved a large chunk of my head and dyed my naturally blonde hair black… We all go through that phase right?!
As I’m getting older I’m realising that quite a large chunk of my wardrobe is made up of colours I never would have worn a few years ago. My relationship with colour is getting better as I start getting to the age where I no longer give a shit about what people think.
I am completely loving all things pink at the moment, quite a bit of my spring wardrobe is turning into that shade and I am not complaining. This Moomin t-shirt from Uniqlo is my latest little addition to my growing pink-themed collection and I bloody love it. It is a steal at £12 and I’ve just spied a black version that they’ve got too and I might just have to purchase that one as well…
These cords have been one of my winter staples which I’m excited to take forward into spring. They are so comfortable and surprisingly go with quite a fair bit of my wardrobe, which makes them a really good alternative to jeans when I’m trying to avoid denim. I’m on a mission to wear jeans less than I currently do, so these cords do help when I’m stuck for inspiration.
So there we have it a little post about this outfit and the colour pink. I think you’ll probably see quite a lot of this colour palette over the next few months, if you don’t like it then I can only apologise although I won’t take anything on board, the colour is here to stay I think…
Thanks for reading,
