I clearly don’t utilise the internet enough and I don’t think outside of the box much, in fact only recently I have learned how ignorant I actually am – no in fact, stupid is the word, stupid.
Before I got sick I would spend a fortune each month on fashion and gardening magazines just to keep up to date with both trends and the same for certain science magazines too. It never occurred to me in the whole twenty six years I’ve had the internet that I can get this information for free online!
It has only been recently when I have been watching fashion trend videos on YouTube and reading money saving books from the library had I actually realised, I shouldn’t have been missing out in the past seven or eight years because lo and behold it’s online! What a numpty I am!
I realised the other day when a friend shared on Twitter that Vogue and various magazines are on there as well as my favourite fashion brands etc. and I was like WOAH. I thought it was all about fandoms and movie geeks, but no, there’s more to the net than that!
Yes I am definitely forty and finding this out so late in my life has made me feel older than my parents!
You didn’t believe me the other day when I said I might well be a nerd, but I am also the biggest airhead I know, did you?
So with that being said I am surprised a couple of my favourite colours are trending for this coming spring, thank goodness they are moving away from grey!
Here is what I think of the main five main colours for the upcoming season;
Digital lavender, I love all shades of purple and this particular shade makes my bedroom look fashionable right now, which is a plus! Though don’t tell anyone I haven’t painted the room in 11yrs! Whoops!
I am excited to see luscious red up there on the list because the amount of clothing I have right now of this colour already, means I won’t look out of touch this year! Especially since I have lost a lot of weight and oversized jacket and blazers are the rage now, so woo hoo, go me!
Sundial, I wouldn’t say that’s a spring colour though would you? I’d say late summer autumn? I have a lovely shrug like this and I personally wouldn’t wear that in spring. Though Henry loves the colour and wants a tailored suit of this colour he has seen online recently, but we just can’t afford £200 for something like that!
Tranquil blue is a similar shade to many things I have too in my wardrobe, but I don’t think it suits me too much.
Verdigris now I love this colour and I wished I could get my hands on more things that are this colour!
I don’t know what it is with me and squirrels but I have a Verdigris jumper with squirrels on it climbing a paisley tree – yikes, is paisley out?
Now you see, the thing with me is – I like to watch the trends, but I don’t chase them and follow them, instead I find the joy in predicting the trends and making my own!
I stick with comfort and what I find is pretty, I am quite a critic when it comes to fashion.
For example I predicted that grey is in for the long haul a few years ago and I was right about that it lasted nearly 3yrs in the area I lived in particular and unfortunately stone seemed to be getting popular too, well thankfully that was a short one! I hate grey; it’s the ugliest colour in the world!
Yellow is never a good colour to wear in the summer, insects are attracted to that colour so it is usually a late autumn and early winter colour for me, so I hope that they won’t transition yellows into the coming summer trend!
I predict magenta and rose pink may be colours for the summer as well as cobalt blue and metallic like copper and perhaps white or black denim. Just my thoughts!
Or wish list, who knows?
Though I like lime personally and orange needs a comeback, which I heard is currently trending?!
Now the idea of all those pockets is horrifying, that’s something I can’t find tasteful.
It is typical that the low rise waist is fashionable when I don’t have the abs for it right now; I have wanted that in trend since I was in college!
As well as lace tank tops so I am seeing…
Oh and I have always loved sequins since I was a girl, there is a hint in which wrestler I am related to now you read that!
Everybody loves the heart motifs so I am totally down with that, this is why I predict rose pink or magenta is coming up for the summer trends!
Today after writing this I feel in a black and pink mood with heart motifs and pink shiny bead piping!
But alas, I have nothing like it!
Thanks for reading!
