The crocuses and daffodils have begun to bloom, M&S are selling cinnamon apple hot cross buns and I've actually left the house without wearing a hat and gloves - twice.
I think its safe to say Spring is officially here and with it comes the shift from wool coats to the humble trench.
I'm not packing up all my winter entire just yet, I'm not that optimistic. However, todays was such a lovely day so I though it was time to give my trench an airing. I've posted about this twice before and its been sitting in my wardrobe for what feels like forever but I've never actually worn it out.
You have to understand, I swooned and swooned over this darling but at £250 I had to let it go.
Then months and months later, I found it in the dregs of the Topshop sale, epically discounted with a missing button. My heart skipped a beat and I bought it without a seconds thought.
I've been trying to conquer my fear of brown, I have a perpetual fear of wearing it.
Especially next to my face!
I think it all stemmed from an article I once read, on which colour suited which complexion etc. It said (my Mother says I quote this way too often but whatever) One should not display sapphires upon a blue velvet cloth. I've always taken this to mean that since have brown hair and eyes there for I should never ever wear brown.
So in an attempt exorcise this particular demon, I went all out and piled it all on together. I don't think it turned out so bad. I especially like the brown shoes and grey tights, the idea of which was expressly stolen from Miss Alexa Chung's collection for Madewell.
I think I've overcome my fear, just so long as it isn't next to my face.
What do you think of the old Sapphire/Blue Velvet quote?
Are there any colours that fill you with fear?
