A couple of days after I wore this tripped-over-a-rainbow outfit, I found the perfect way to describe it in my May issue of Instyle: 'colourshocking: the pairing of neon brights that dares you not to stop and stare. The fun (and scary) part of it is that neutral anything - shoes, hair, or makeup - is simply not allowed.' (It so happens I had some raspberry-coloured lipstick on that day)
I liked how my scarf pulled together all the colours from my outfit. I found out later my dad has an identical one in his closet - a gift from my sister after a volunteer stint in Ghana. Good thing I only paid $1.99 at a thrift store. It also served as a colourful table runner over a neutral tablecloth when we invited friends for dinner recently.
I bought my pants and shoes this spring and can't wait to wear both throughout the summer months. LOVE LOVE LOVE even if the pants wrinkle a lot in the wash. No issues with the shoes at all. The shirt is an oldie but goodie from a Canadian brand called Dynamite. Dynamite is known as a 'cheaper' chain but I find they offer pretty decent value for money compared to other stores at the same price point. Anything I've bought from there has held its shape and colour well, even after endless washings.
