Shop in colour with Buchanan Galleries

Bonjour everyone!

I know I haven't been doing much in the way of my blog which I feel a little bad about. However, I have been a busy little bee as I'm now a trainee nail technician (more on that another day). It doesn't matter how busy any of us get, we always allow ourselves some time to shop. To be honest I actually couldn't remember the last time I went shopping for even something small never mind a full outfit. 

You could imagine my delight when Buchanan Galleries shopping centre got in touch about their up coming in store promotion. From the 23rd - 27th of March if you spend £50 or more you receive a £5 gift card from Buchanan Galleries. No bad ae? The Shop in Colour promotion is all about trying to introduce some colour back into your wardrobe. It's been a long winter and I think we are all ready for Spring/Summer. By bringing some colour back into your life means you are well on your way to embracing the current and next season trends. 

The dolls over at Buchanan Galleries wanted me to give everyone a little inspiration on how easy it is to introduce colour. I was a bit stuck because like most people in winter, I like to live in black clothes. Black skinny jeans, black T-shirts and black Dr Martens. It's hard to get out that rut. After a little thinking I came to the conclusion that colour doesn't need to be about bright yellows and pink jackets. Choosing something with different tones and textures can really make all the difference. 


Jacket - HM
Boots - HM (I got these half price in store)
Skirt - River Island
Top - River Island
Bag - River Island

I was given a budget of £150 and I quickly decided that I was going to work with cream and khaki. This made it really easy because the shops are screaming out all things neutral. I picked this outfit because I love these colours but I also wanted something that was really adaptable. In the photos above I would be ready for some dinner and drinks in town but as soon as the good weather is here I just need to loose the jacket and shoes and I have a little BBQ outfit. 

All the items I picked can be worn in so many different ways and I'm really excited to style this through out the season!
