Behold: the time I wore colour...and liked it.

I'll give you a moment to pick yourself up off the floor.

Now, to say I never stray from a monochromatic palette would be mostly true, though not always
Every now and then a piece crosses my path that has such a great silhouette that I can't pass it up, 
despite it not adhering to my usual non-colour colour palette. 

This Tibi shirt is an example of such a piece. With its high-neck, overlong sleeves and cut-out 
shoulders it was just crying out to be worn, despite it having a serious case of the blues going on. 

The fact that the blue hues in the shirt matched almost perfectly with denim was a good start - denim 
is always your friend if you want to keep a look relaxed and nonchalant, a definite must when 
venturing outside your sartorial comfort zone. This form of tonal dressing is also in keeping with 
the minimalist ideal of "less is more" I feel, in that the less opposing colours you have in one outfit the 
more classic and put-together you look. 

Anchored with my favourite luxe black accessories (hello, Gucci) and all of a sudden I was comfortable 
wearing predominantly colour, a light blue of all things. Go figure.

If you too are feeling a little adventurous this week, you can shop my look below + a few extra 
non-monochromatic current season picks. 

See you on the other side.

  17. The bag made me swoon; the shoes made me laugh; your post had me nodding my head in agreement about (almost) always not wearing colour. The blouse is too pretty to pass up.

  23. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.
