Colour comforts...

every time I enter my wardrobe...I say to myself  "today I am going to choose another colour shirt,top,sweater...I have to step out of my comfort zone" and this year I have tried to a little more....I have bought bright pinks and light pinks, greens....BUT...I always go back to the navys and the greys.
So...as you can see from the above photo...I didn't step out this morning...I tried, I really did...I put on a top my Mum had given me a couple of years ago as a gift...I think I have worn it twice. Everytime I wear it, people comment on it and say it looks pretty....BUT every time I look in the mirror when I have it on...I feel washed out. It's a brown and pink, almost a burnt skin colour(if you can imagine that :-).
SO...I took it off. Found some blue, and more blue...and the scarf(summer scarf) Mum knitted for me which is perfect for these end of Summer mornings.
I am sorry to say...I am all about feeling comfortable, in my own skin and in the clothes I wear...

Do you have a Colour which Comforts you?

Several years ago... that color was "the black"... Always, there was something in black in my dress.
But one day this color disappeared... and now I haven't a colour comforts... I must to return to Black...

My tried and true colors are black and grey. I try to add a little color but I feel most at home in my black and grey. Such is life.
