So many of us around the globe are currently facing snow storms, blizzards or dreadful rain, however there is also a large proportion of us who are currently sunbathing in scorching temperatures. Unfortunately i am one of the many people living in a city that only experiences 2-3 months ( if we are lucky ) of sunshine a year and the majority of the time filled with either snow or rain….Have you guessed where yet?
That’s right the lovely city called ( LONDON ). So for those of you sunbathing right now or enjoying a nice stroll in the glorious weather [please spare 1 min to think about us while your sipping on a lovely cocktail with the breeze blowing through your hair.
So as i am sitting in the office drinking a cup of HOT Chocolate with the wind blowing outside and snow falling i had a thought!
“Should the weather dictate what we wear or should we dictate what we wear?” So many of us wait until we see a little sunshine before we start folding away the Greys and Blacks in our closets. ( Why is that? ) Surely if you feel liking wearing Pink or Yellow in the winter then you should go ahead and do so and not be looked upon like a complete lunatic.
I never understood why retail outlets immediately change all of the colours in-store as soon as Autumn/Winter appears forcing you to wear Blacks and Greys and Dark colours.
Winter should not be about blending into the dark miserable greys of the clouds. So today i say lets stand up to the WINTER BLUES and and bring in the WINTER BRIGHTS.
Many of you who may know me know that i have always loved and appreciated colour and building Styles-Afrik has given me the platform to embellish on that.
I don’t agree that you should wear that little black dress to the party or the club , why blend in with 100’s of other women surely those events are about standing out and bringing out your inner brightness.
So ladies and gents here is my suggestion every time you think about purchasing the same Black or Grey outfit think about this blog.
Here are some some suggestions to help keep you warm but also help to release your inner brightness.
