Pretty in Pink

I may be a girly girl when it comes to collectables and homeware, but my wardrobe has never been dominated by feminine colours. Black is my saviour, and navy and green rank the highest in popularity.

So when I spotted this top in a charity shop, I was instantly drawn towards it, but I just couldn’t figure out why, when pink is way out of my usual comfort zone.
Maybe it’s the intricate print that intrigued me, it’s not quite Liberty (it’s actually H&M) but it sure has a fine resemblance to such glorious design. And let’s face it I am a lover of lightweight polyester, easy to wear, easy to wash and doesn’t even require an iron.

On my arrival home, I was in two minds whether I had done the right thing in purchasing this top, I really didn’t want to revert back to my childhood days of being made to dress in pink, when all I wanted to do was reach for my denim dungarees. But as soon as I tried it on, I just knew it was the perfect addition to my wardrobe.

Priced at £3.65 it’s quite the bargain.
