Colour makes my world go round.
It’s no secret I’m colour obsessed. It is a rare, dreary day when I’m wearing all neutrals. My artist’s eye has always led me towards colour. My closet looks like a Crayola crayon bomb exploded inside. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Oh sure, a closet of neutrals is practical, they all work interchangeably. An entire closet based on neutral colours can also be the equivalent of two Nytol washed down with two very large glasses of wine. Zzzzzz… Wake me up before you go go cause I ain’t planning on goin’ no no. (Yes, I changed the lyrics…forgive me George Michael.)
So yeah, all respect for those of you that prefer your neutrals, me, I’m sticking to what I love and what excites me…colour baby! And LOTS of it!
This Fall Every Day Drown Yourself In Colour
This top scared me when I saw it on the rack at the thrift store. I thought, “No way will that look decent on me. I’m too…old.”
Yeah, that creepy annoying voice snuck in my head. However, being the
positive rebellious person that I am I took the top into the change room anyway. No one is going to tell me what I can or cannot wear…even myself!
You never know until you try it on and I was happily surprised.
Any doubts were kicked to the curb and squashed like grubby little pests.
The top is Amour By Love from LA and made in USA…pretty rare you find something like that anymore. The skirt is Roots (made in Canada) and the boots are…wild! and by a US company called Diba. Patchwork boots are everywhere this fall. I’ve been “collecting” mine for a couple of years now and just sold a similar pair in my online store recently. These ones really caught my eye and are by a company that is known for comfortable footwear. I haven’t tried out any of the Spring Step line but I’m dying to. I’ve had my eyes on these ones for months now. I figure they’d go with so many pieces in my closet. Let me know if you’ve tried them and how you found them.
Does wearing copious amounts of highly visible saturated colour scare you?
