Afternoon!

Oh, London has returned to its rainy, gloomy self today so I thought I'd inject a splash of colour on my blog with this outfit post. Wearing neon was at first a completely foreign territory to me. I found comfort in my usual neck of the woods: a neutral palette of monochrome, soft browns, forest greens and maroons. Walking around looking like a highlighter pen certainly wasn't one of the things on my list to tick off any time soon.

We all change though; some changes happen faster than others especially when it's the last top in stock...and it's in your size. Some would call it fate, I agree (as a way to justify my spending. Repeat after me: it's an investment in my happiness.)

I went through a 'vibrant' episode with wardrobe choices during March-May this year. The high street displays boasted an array of florals, jewel-toned pieces and neons. It didn't quite suit the grey skies that I'd wake up and fall asleep to each day so naturally, it made me hanker after a colourful wardrobe more. I'm also the person that suddenly misses Christmas in July. 


The H&M Conscious collection also arrived at that time; it was a thing of beauty. Whilst interning at The Muse TV, I had my own 'video series' - the Shu Shop (puns were inevitable). To kick start it, we decided to find three things to pair with the trousers above. I spotted them in H&M a few days before and managed to convince Olwen that they were the right choice, they were the one. After umm-ing and ahh-ing for a while, I found this neon top and decided that if we were messing around with colour on the bottom half (oo-er), we may as well go all out. This outfit was then born!

It's one of my all-time favourite things to wear. It gets a few 'weird' stares when I'm prancing around London but I love it. It's fun, colourful and a welcome from my usual dull and drab preferences!

Have you changed your usual wardrobe choices recently?

If you're interested in watching The Shu Shop video that we filmed, I've embedded it below! :)

I'm so excited for my 21st birthday celebrations this weekend! I'll be sure to take as many pictures as possible to post it on here :)

Have a great rest of the day!
