Isn’t this outfit brilliant? Discard the fluffy heels, add a pair of sensible flats and I give you the perfect embodiment of 24-hour, casual glamour. It’s from H&M’s newest label &OtherStories – I visited the London store when it first opened and was impressed by the accessories but not so enamoured by the clothing. Think I need to take another look. Rummaging through my moth-proof jumper box the other day, I came across an old rose pink sweater that I’d completely forgotten about – oh the joys of shopping yer wardrobe. Until I get round to taking a photo, here’s a Pure Collection cashmere sweater that’s a very similar shade:
Though I’ve worn fuchsia in the past – a corduroy coat from Topshop, a John Smedley Sea Island cotton roll neck – these days I’m much happier with the brightness toned down. Anything too vibrant and I worry that I’m starting to look a bit menopausal. And anyway, this minky pink shade almost feels like a neutral. Just pretend that it’s camel and wear together with black and/or denim, like so:

Keep it subtle and colour can slip seamlessly into your wardrobe like the er, Milk Tray Man.
And here are few pinkish bits and pieces that won’t make you blush:

Enjoy the weekend.
