Cheery red in a dreary Feb!

Hello there, how are you all?

How come when your come back from a winters holiday things seem very dull and boring?  With no sunshine to brighten the day, way too much washing and ironing to do, with no sign of another skiing holiday to look forward to, & I feel a cold is lurking around the corner!

What's the best thing to do when feeling low - dress up in bright, radiant colours of course.  I really wanted comfort today, yes I really wanted to wear my tracksuit all day and lounge on the sofa.  To be fair I didn't have a hard day, just housework and lunch with my mum 😁.
Back to what I wore, jeans - stretch at that!  Comfy boots, long sleeve pain grey tee shirt and it had to be my bold, vibrant red jacket, that cheered me up no end, that and a chat with my mum!



I'm also sporting a hat, this Mint Velvet bobble hat came my way at Christmas - hubby knew what I wanted and delivered the exact style.  It's got diamantes over it and a cute fluffy bunny tail bobble.




Picking out all the colours in my clothing today my scarf mixed in beautifully.  If and it's a big if, my memory serves me correctly it belonged to my youngest daughter, I re-homed it in my collection after she hadn't worn it! 

"One man's junk is another man's treasure"



Do you find bright colours energise you?  What are your favourites?  Along with red I love wearing pink to inspire my days.

Jacket from M & Co
Jeans from Zara
Scarf from Primark
Tee from Matalan
Bobble hat from Mint velvet.

Thanks for visiting my friends - have a look on Monday, there might be something you'll like too.

Bye for today.X

  11. Nothing like a pop of red to brighten up the winter blues. Red is always a winner in my book. I've got a very similar red jacket and I'm anxiously waiting for it to get cool enough down here in Florida to wear it!
