Often in winter there is a trend in mainstream and current fashion for darker, deeper, richer colours to be popular. I'm a winter lover and adore nothing more than playing with layers and textures and getting all cosy, but I still must have colour somewhere somehow to lift my outfit. Along with that I find colour and brightness to be such a big part in helping keep a postitive and happy outlook.
It seems that what I see as simple act of dressing for me brightens others day too, when strangers are compelled to tell me that my outfit has brighten their day and that it's nice to see colour. So if dressing for me acts as a public service to others even just one I'll take it.
This is exactly what I have worn today to do my grocery shopping with Fraser today, and we had a great time singing and pretending various grocery items were guitars. Sometimes you've got to act a little crazy with the kids to get through such every day but necessary tasks.
This whole outfit from top to to bottom is thrifted and gifted.
Red and Silver Fleck 1980s Top - Thrifted
Dark Brown Velvet Skirt - Gifted from Allison
Denim Vest - thrifted
Suede Ankle Boots - hand me downs from a friend
Accessories - thrifted except for my birdie Erstwidler necklace and Love Locket Necklace which are gifts from Ben
So glam it up, brighten it up and rock it out on your pretend guitar doing the groceries, you'll brighten your day and others.
