One of the reasons I’m so happy to be home, is that I’ve just spent 3 weeks in the same few clothes, all in a palette of black, white and red (apart from a couple of items), and I’m now bored, so bored with these clothes!
It’s great to be able to capsule your wardrobe so that travel is easy and everything mixes and matches, but after so long in the same gear, I want some variety and different colours!
I want to wear purple and green and pink and blue, and lots of other colours too.
I’ve come from early summer in LA, to early winter in Melbourne, it’s been a shock to the system, when we got home the heating wasn’t working and so I had a lovely hot, hot shower to warm up before getting into some of my warmest clothes, in shades of cornflower blue and grey.
As there is no rest for the wicked, I’ve flown into Brisbane to do a workshop tomorrow to teach retail optometry staff how to help their clients choose flattering glasses frames. I’ve avoided the previous colour palette and instead have opted for navy trousers and turquoise top with some teal shoes.
Do you wear any particular palette of colours all the time or do you prefer to mix it up a bit?
