I’ll always be in awe of the women that manage to stick to a few constant colours within their wardrobes. I wholeheartedly lack this discipline. I love navy blue as much as I love powder pink. In fact, I adore colour. I also, adore a lack of colour – whites, creams, greys or blacks. I like it all and so quite aptly, I wear it all. Lately, my preference has swayed towards earth tones; green, camel and khaki have been spreading through my closets like ivy. Ivy green, another great colour. The Pantone Chart fascinates me, which is where I stumbled across rust. A rich brown, an almost orange – a burnt sort of shade. Quite like the sun in Barcelona or how I feel after being out in this hot hot city all day. It’s an unusual colour, reminding me of a too ripe peach, terracotta tiles or the amber melting sun at dusk. I like all these things, even overripe peaches, they make for really good bircher muesli (you should try this, don’t throw them away!) So to summarize, I guess, rust is the colour I am enjoying most today. This will definietly change tomorrow and by Friday, who knows what colour I’ll be singing. I’m a lover of colour, but a very fickle one. But how could I resist? According to Pantone, there are more colours for me to fall in love with than are days in a year. I plan to be as promiscuous as I possibly can be.
