I’m on a mission. A colour mission. I may have  mentioned this before but back in university my wardrobe considered off four colours, black, white, red and navy. Don’t get me wrong this made dressing pretty easy and let me be pretty put together at all times, but you know what else? It was incredibly boring. Yep you heard that right, dressing, boring? so incredibly boring.

So as I do I set out on a mission to not only focus on better quality (less cheap bulk buys – le sigh) but to also make sure that each piece can both fit in with my wardrobe and be well loved and remixed but to also be at the same time completely different!

I am really trying to not only inject some much needed colour but to also add patterns and interest and I hope with paying that little bit more that I will also get some more textures and often its the little fancy extras on a piece of clothing (like a little bit of velvet covering the seems) that just adds to that wow I feel good factor! and who doesn’t want that?

As someone who works in the big smoke – London. For some reason since moving to kent I call London “The City” (There are cities in Kent, btw – so who knows where that came from!) Needless to say its part of (I think) The culture for Londoners and commuters alike. Finish work, put on a fresh lip colour and your out the door on the way to drinks, dinner and nights out with friends. Or work . . .

Whatever the reason, I always need a good from day to night outfit. We have a casual dress code so it means I can mix it up quite nicely. I especially love going from flats to a great heel, especially the pointed toes as they tend to hurt too much to wear all day. .  .

(p.s excuse the crazy hair, it needs both colouring and cutting – a dreadful combination)
