I decided not to have any new year’s resolutions for 2014, but somewhere along the way, I must have decided that I was going to start wearing a colour that I have never liked, or worn before. I think it started with being given an orange nail polish for Christmas from Beauty on the Strand. It looked so nice on my toes!
All of a sudden I was noticing the colour orange – how had I ever not liked this colour before? Rather than buy my usual black skorts from Nike, I decided to try on an orange version from Adidas last week. They made me look really tanned (a bonus) was a slightly different style than I would normally choose and I am sure made me feel younger (at least under 30). I even found an Adidas sports-top with a splash of orange, which also looked good. Could I be converting from yellow to orange – surely not?
To my amazement I have also bought this year a pair of open toed shoes from Velvet Steps in Mt Maunganui in black with a leopard print pattern. I think I last wore leopard print or something similar back in the 1990’s. What was wrong with me? My usual style radar was travelling a different course than normal. Perhaps it was the orange toes!
So my new year’s resolution for you would be to consider wearing a colour you never thought you would. Perhaps on a more serious note I should have set a new year’s resolution for Yellow Tulip in 2014 to stop going shopping!
