We have been lucky with the weather in Dublin (or the unluckiest people in the world from my 8 year olds perspective) in that we have had no proper snow, but there has been a lot of rain and sleet, and the sky has been grey for as long as I can remember at this point. It seemed like the perfect time to bring out this neon pink J Crew bag that I got back in November. When I opened the parcel, I felt the instinctive need to reach for my sunglasses – it really is bright! But it’s amazing how your eye becomes attuned to a colour, and now, post Christmas, it seems to have grown on me, and I’m hoping that by April I will love it. I definitely think it’s a shade that will look better in the sunshine (I live in perpetual hope of seeing the sun)
I wore it with my vintage leopard faux fur, which is not as warm as it looks, so underneath I had a Marks and Spencer Heatgen top ( these are very good), Anya Hindmarch navy cashmere sweater and a John Lewis cashmere cardigan, my ubiquitous Oasis cherry jeans and Aldo wedges.
