Red. Blue. & Yellow 

I was reading a magazine article last week that said most people dress predominantly in black. It seemed like a fairly ridiculous claim, but looking around I was actually quite shocked to see that it was almost true! It seemed to stir something deep within me – either that or I’m trying to convince myself that we’re not headed towards the colder seasons – but I have definitely been hooked on bright colours since. Today’s outfit was mostly the result of lovely Barnaby paying me in ASOS vouchers for some work I did for him. The hat and playsuit were both ‘payment’, and the bag belongs to a vintage Kodak camera. The tights were from Foot Traffic, and the shoes were courtesy of PBJ Boutique.

It seems like forever since we’ve been on a pretty woodland visit. It’s usually my natural habitat (!) but a grumpy car has put an end to that for now! We haven’t even mustered up a decent walk either – as most of my time has been spent stocking the vintage store! On the bright side, I had incredible luck thrifting today; I just know that you will love the vintage update next week!

  8. Your hat is just gorgeous! I definitely used to be one who wears at least one piece of black clothing everyday, but I’ve found that more recently I’ve been swapping black for navy blue, and it makes such a difference! My outfits always look a lot more cheerful!

  10. I love the colour of this playsuit, may have to take a trip to their site again… I’m definitely trying to embrace more colours, I think it’s important to keep wearing and playing around with it all year round.
