Its not always an all black outfit

But theres always something black involved. I am always trying to incorporate colour into my outfits, mainly in the forms of blue, purple and reds – white isn’t really colourful either, so didn’t include that one. Here comes the orange shirt, more of a burnt orange. Unintentionally, I matched it with the cafe decor.

Early April, I was on a holiday (back home) – where these shots were taken by anyone who was willing to take them, most of the time being mum. Thanks mum. I was there for over a week and despite the weather, I didn’t really wanted to be back as I had a lot of family around and we spent a lot of time together – I was less cold and aloof too. Must be something in the air there.

I seriously don’t know where or when my love for black clothes started. I didn’t even go through the emo, scene…phase as a teenager. When I was a child, mum usually dressed me up in colourful clothes…very rarely a black item. I was rocking the lilacs, yellows, red… Maybe thats why.

Slowly, as I got older the odd black items started appearing in my wardrobe. Currently, it is 90% black. I always justify it with “it never goes out of style”. Black will always be in style, it is a flattering colour and makes everything look more expensive and classier. I won’t shy away from a bit of colour here and there though, however not everything colourful.

In Anne-Marie’s latest song ‘ciao adios’ she is rocking all the colour and patters, it suits her a lot actually but I couldn’t wear that.

What is your favourite colour to wear?

    I’m loving blush pink at the moment, but I agree that you can never go wrong with black! The burnt orange blouse is lovely on you. x

    • Oh yes, blush pink is so pretty. I have bought a few things that colour.
      Thanks for your comment x

  • My wardrobe used to pretty much be filled with black and grey, occasionally some white if you were lucky! And everything was so simple/basic, no patterns and I don’t know if it was just because I was young and didn’t have THAT much of an appreciation for clothes but my wardrobe is always filled with colour now and I instantly gravitate towards anything with embroidery, pretty patterning or pastel shades of pink! I love the blouse you’re wearing in the first two pictures 🙂

    • How did you make the transition? that sounds great, I have a few coloured pieces but I do love minimal colours and black is a favourite. Thanks for you comment, lovely 🙂
