Going neon

everyday style, fashion

FullSizeRender (28)

I normally shy away from bright colours, but this neon green shirt with gold buttons is something that the offspring shoe horned me into yesterday. “Why do you only wear black and dull colours?” he grumbled, and I was forced to concede he had a point. Why do I only wear black and dull colours, what is the mind block that makes me think I draw too much attention to myself if I wear a bright colour? This is something I need to examine and conquer, and wear bright colours with panache.

The rest of me was rather drab, I concede, dressed up in a rush, with my standard denims, tan T Strap Bata faithfuls and a yellow Woodland square shoulder bag.

The blouse though, added all the colour I could ever need. Tell me, do you shy away from bright colours too?

Pardon the blurry photography skills in this one, it is the offspring clicking, and I must concede he always makes me look just that bit more softly and indulgently into the camera.

My perennial airport look

everyday style, fashion

I have great admiration for celebs who land up at airports looking straight off the pages of a fashion mag, skin impeccable, hair impeccable, clothes designer. Me? I’m a ragtag of what is warm, comfortable and clothes with enough, err, give, considering I’m going to be sitting for a while. So here’s me with black lycra enhanced ankle cropped jeans, a black turtleneck pullover, grey oversized handbag, patent leather camouflage print jacket, my old, old, retinal damage inflicting neon orange Nike shoes, but with the best accessory ever, my latest bestseller, #13StepsToBloodyGoodParenting co-authored with Ashwin Sanghi in my hand. No label can ever top that.
