Not that any of you were in any doubt that pink has been the colour of the season already…I’ve been obsessing about all things pink: trainers, coats, cosy knits and even interiors.
It really is one of those colours that makes me happy but it has to be in the right shade – paler than pale almost chalky pink. The kind of pink that lifts grey days as well as a grey coat.
This coat was one of those amazing buys from Sezane – pricey but worth it – and it promptly sold out. It makes everything else in my wardrobe feel ‘scrubbed up’. I must admit, everything I’m wearing here is kind of old again – items in my wardrobe I reach for on a regular basis.
And here I am with a silly bag. Yep, I understand the irony. This fits hardly anything in – but I love the shape and couldn’t bare to throw this one out – and besides, it looked better in the photo than any other. But it’s definitely more of an ‘evening only’ bag.
I’ve been living in this scarf, too, a wonderful brand set up by one of those lovely people I met through Social Media. Lois Avery cashmere scarves and shawls – so amazing to see independent women doing their own thing and succeeding.
The thing about pink is that it’s surprisingly easy to wear – with denim, black – even with red – these boots work (I think!) and I wore it similarly with my red New Balance recently and it was very well received.
Looking to cheer up dry/wet/damp January? Invest in something pink.
