These days, my work wardrobe is my everyday look (even on those days out of the office) and monochrome looks (presumably under Sophie's influence) weave their way into what once was a pretty colourful selection... I like to think I steer clear of black where possible, but sitting in front of my 'everyday clothes' rail I can see that's definitely not the case anymore! Shopping in summer is a saviour for injecting colour into a wardrobe in dire need and after heading to Missguided, I went a little crazy with the spending... Oops!
Picking out a little something brighter doesn't mean it has to be cerise pink and neon yellow, even the lighter neutral tones can make a differentiation between funeral attire and summer dressing, and switching up the tones in your pieces can make all of the difference. Wear the same boring trousers/jeans everyday and pair with a coloured top? Swap this around for a bigger block of colour on your bottom half for a fresher look or pair with metallics for an extra shine... Who said it had to be so hard?
