If you’ve meandered through the pages of this blog before, you will probably have come across a blog post or two extolling the virtues of wearing what the hell you like and not being a slave to what’s ‘in’.
Keep An Open Mind
I still stand behind every word written in those posts, yet I do find myself drawn to this season’s offering.
Take this on trend metallic pink jacket, which I still haven’t returned after borrowing it to wear for an anniversary date. It’s most definitely in and it’s not a colour I would have thought about wearing before my hatred of anything pink and girly flew off over the rainbow on the back of a unicorn 😂
Seriously, the old me would have stood there open mouthed if you’d told her she would be wearing fuchsia pink heels and donning a metallic pink jacket. The woman who hid in beige is definitely very much long gone.
It just goes to show: keep your mind open when it comes to clothes, experiment, have fun and you’re wardrobe will thank you!
Take a trend and make it your own, weave it into you wardrobe and wrap your own personality around it. For instance: I couldn’t resist taking this metallic pink jacket and giving it a bit of an eighties twist. The long string of pearls, the matching bright stilettos and bag – ah, I can almost hear Duran Duran.
Sadly (for me at least, my daughter is thrilled) the jacket is now back with it’s rightful owner. But it did get to party with me a few times, and it helped me in my quest to experiment more with fashion.

What do you think? Do you love this season’s offering or does it leave you wanting more? And, as you mature, are you experimenting more with fashion? I’d love to know so do leave me a comment.
Oh, and if you’re reading this as it goes live – a very happy Easter to you!
