Summer colour combinations are getting me rather excited at the moment – oh how I now love coral, jade green, pale blue and black together!
This is an outfit all made up of items a few years old, but as the UK gets so few proper summery days (this year is the first good summer for about seven years), my summer wardrobe clothes don’t wear out from overuse. So they’ll stay as fresh as the day they were bought… with one exception. I haven’t worn the cropped pants for a couple of years as the zip came away from the fabric and I never got round to mending them – till this month. I saw them sitting patiently in the “To Mend” pile and stopped whatever I was doing at the time to mend them right there and then.
And voilà – it’s as if I have a new pair of trousers! I’d forgotten how great they are for summer and how nice the colour is.
Are you the sort of person who mends things straight away, or are you like me and have a To Mend pile that’s left for ages? If you’re the latter, then let me tell you it’s Sunday – go get that pile and mend! mend! mend! – a whole new wardrobe is just sitting there waiting for you!
