The Colour Blocking fashion that is all the rage at the moment had me buzzing with excitement. I love me a bit of colour and I really do hate black. If you haven't been living in outerspace in a bright yellow hessian sack, you would know that the Colour Blocking trend is when you wear bright colours and give the middle finger to the notion that your clothes should be matching. So you might be sporting some bright coloured jeans and a contrasting colour top. Say yellow jeans and a hot pink top. For example.
As a big ASOS shopper (it changed my life) I noticed a pair of PETITE (yeehah) coloured skinny pink jeans for the pricely sum of around $19 Australian Dollars with free delivery. I popped these on yesterday with a blue top. I took the kids for a walk. I noticed the traffic slowed as it past me. Ok. That's weird.
I mentioned this to husband. I think these hot pink jeans were gaining some unwanted stares. I was feeling a bit OUT THERE and a little SELF CONSCIOUS by this stage. Before leaving the house, I felt like I was Totally-Owning-These-Hot-Pink-Skinny-Jeans-Matched-With-A-Blue-Top. Could I be wrong? Maybe my neighbourhood is not ready for Colour Blocking. Maybe I just look stupid. Maybe I am a fashion victim. Maybe THEY are they daggy ones?
Husband assured me I looked fine. We went out for lunch. He said "People are staring at your pants!". OH MY GOD. It's not just me.
So I got home feeling all weirded out. The world is not ready for me, a mother of 3 small children to be wearing brightly coloured pants.
|Ok. This is me. With THE OUTFIT. Ok. There is a little bit of belt action here but if I don't wear one, the jeans will be at my ankles rather than solidly located at my hips.|
