This weekend I spent some time with my BFF and my Mum – both of whom are very nicely tanned, and both of whom often wear these crazy bright clothes which I love.
I’m a proper Pale Gail, and most bold, tropical colours just wash me out – especially orange, which is a shame, because I love orange.
I went home with a feeling lamentation and sadness, and dreamt about rainbows.
(I actually dreamt about the Slenderman and woke up at 4am silently screaming for help – but that doesn’t compliment the story as well).
So the Slenderman got me up early, and I decided to make a lust list of rainbow-brites I just don’t have the confidence to buy. With the exception of the Yellow cardigan from Yumi. Love that.
So, here are my wishful picks, in rainbow order.
Orange – Josh Goot Scuba Dress
Yellow – Yumi Lace & Heart Cardigan
Green – Uttam Boutique Daisy Print Dress
Indigo – Adidas ClimaLite Mesh Shorts
Violet – Fair + True Print Pencil Skirt
Compiling this dreamy wishlist I came across a brand that is completely new to me. Fair + True, which specialises in fair trade fashion. They seem to be relatively new, but definitely worth a look here. I really love some of their print items – wild but lovely.
Are there any pale girls out there who can help me to rock some bold & bright?
