Mixing It Up

When I was a little girl and I went along to my first ballet class, I remember the teaching saying, “ok girls, it’s time to get on our ponies and do our gallops in a circle.” She then proceeded to ask everyone what colour they would like to make their imaginary pony. There were cries of “pink!”, “purple!”, one super imaginative child said, “silver!”. Never to be outdone, when it came to my turn (I mean what other option was left to me when my favourite colour had already been taken) I confidently told my teacher, “a rainbow swirl pony with silver glitter and pink metallic hooves!”. What can I say, I’ve always been a competitive child.

At the ripe old age of 24, I’m still a bit of a freak when it comes to colours. Although I would never wear a rainbow swirl with silver glitter and metallic pink accessories outfit, colour is the main thing I think about when I’m deciding what to wear and my biggest influence when I shop.

When I saw this burnt orange shirt (and let me tell you this is a bit of a variation from the pastels and bright colours that I normally lean towards) I thought it would look great with burgundy. By the time I had left the shops 10 minutes later I had added bottle green to the mix and the end result was this outfit..

I normally find that when I dress I pair a colour with something neutral (white, cream, beige, grey, black) by default but in this case I did a throwback to my childhood and really went to town..
