This is the time of year when I start to hit my winter wardrobe slump. I was so excited the beginning of December when I thought to myself, “Gosh, oh boy! Winter is almost over!” (Yes my inner voice bears a slight resemblance to Pinnochio.) Only to be told that we still had 3 more months of the dreary cold and dark days. What a downer… With our first spot of snow this week in London and rain always a foreboding presence in the weekly forecast, I decided it was high time to start incorporating soft colours into my wardrobe just as if the first buds of Spring were beginning to appear. Taking a classic black and white shift dress and adding a pop of colour at the cuffs and collar liven up a work ensemble and make typing on a keyboard pleasantly more pink. The outfit also lends itself to a quick transition for after work drinks by swapping out the collared shirt for a more sleek look. Hope you are having a great week! Cheers!
