colour therapy

Gloomy weather calls for cheery clothes. I picked up the pink dress in the middle at an op shop the other week. I’ve been loving it sick. It originally had ugly short sleeves and a built in waistcoat (grosssss) but I cut them off and now it’s kind of amazing. I’ll have to do a full outfit post soon.

    You're a genius with colour, Soph. Utterly genius. I'd never have thought to pair mustard and pink together but you have and its a knockout combo. And god, I thought that pink vintage dress was TBA or something expensive and designery. I've put you on my links list. I don't know why I didn't do it earlier!

    I love the color mustard, not many people do but I think it's a fantastic neutral even if perhaps it's really not but who cares I think it is. Paired with the right colors like the pinks in your photographs and camel which I love it could be pure bliss.
