Well, I did tell you that I had succumbed to a bright coloured coat. I bought it recently in the Hobbs sale. I just could not resist. I think I have an obsession with pink at the moment. I used to wear more muted colours, however, these days when I try them on they seem to look dull on me.
Since my hair has gone grey the brighter tones lift my spirits as well as complexion. There are numerous articles on the internet and in the press about not wanting to look invisible when we are older. Wearing a coat as bright as this one makes “invisibility” impossible.
The joy of having a brightly coloured coat is that it goes with all my neutrals, my navies, greys and blacks as well as the lighter toned creams and pastels.
I love the combination of pale and bright colours in the same colour family. I bought the scarf I am wearing in St. Tropez market.

My make-up is from Lookfabulousforever.

I still love the pale pink Mango coat I bought last Spring. It is a lighter weight and is best worn when the weather is warmer.
