If you were to come nosying through my house (do! do!), you would open my wardrobe doors and sigh, for you would be confronted by a sea of darkness.
The majority of my clothes are, sadly, typically NOM*D-Dunedin-black (though sadly, I don’t own anything by NOM*D). I can’t help it. When I go shopping for new clothes, I always come home with black, black and more black.
However, if you pulled aside the black, the grey and the denim, you’d actually find a few splashes of green, a touch of white, and one little hint of bright fuschia.
And then if you moved onto my drawers, you’d be surprised to find more colour. If you’d rifled through my clothes last week, you’d never have believed that I owned anything coloured; over the long weekend, I took the opportunity to unearth a whole lot of coloured items, and bring them to the top of the piles, to encourage myself to wear them.
Because I love colour, I really do. I am especially fond of green (can you tell??), but love red and orange and yellow and sometimes even pink.
So over the last couple of weeks, I’ve made it my mission to inject some colour into my daily wardrobe. I have plenty of clothes that aren’t black…I just forget to wear them.
And with a dribbly, spewy four-month-old, I should be steering clear of black anyway, because a snail-trail of drool is never a good look.
