Today marks the end of June’s Style Dare with “my style mantra”. I don’t have a style mantra as such, but got to thinking about the main factor that influences my outfit choices. It comes down to this: colour. The right colour brightens my complexion, and more importantly my mood.
Since embarking on this blog and overhauling my wardrobe, I’ve collected items almost every colour of the rainbow – not yellow (yet), and orange is pretty scarce. But reds, pinks, greens, blues, purples – in various cheery shades. Used in monochromatic looks, mixed with neutrals, or boldly paired together. Some days I’ll go for more subdued combinations just for a change or to suit my mood, but generally I’ll use colour to express my personality in my outfits.
(And because I was too busy having a fun time with my in-laws yesterday to post an outfit, here’s some bonus pictures from yesterday.)
