a distinct lack of colour.

Last night, as I was preparing and planning today’s inspiring-enough-for-a-Monday outfit, I realised the sheer lack of colour in my wardrobe and jewellery collection. I’ve been quite aware of this for some time – I steer towards a more monochrome palette on days when there is little inspiration or creativity; it’s an easy go-to, never-fail option.

But with the black / white / blue mix for this morning, even with the dramatic presence of houndstooth and another non-descript, non-matching pattern ( obsessed with pattern on pattern ), some semblance of colour was required. That little piece of pizazz; a glimmer in a world of neutral. Especially on a Monday.

The accessories drawers did not deliver a solid, bold coloured piece. Those had all been discarded post-year 10 when crazy colours became less cool again. I’d take my neon orange satchel if I didn’t eat lunch, but the need for food trumped. When all else fails, my trusty orange ( so much orange ) Joco cup is there to satisfy both my coffee and sartorial needs. And so it did.

In the case that you are experiencing this similar lacking of vibrancy, here’s a few glamourous pieces from some of my favourite jewellery ladies to deliver on those days when you need SOMETHING. But equally wearable and versatile.
