As a person who loves the monochromes and neutral tones of the colour wheel for her wardrobe,
it's come as a bit of a pleasant surprise to me just how much I love bold, bright primary colours in practically every other aspect of my life.
There's a lot to be said for blacks, greys and silvers. They are practical, they go with everything and each other, they miraculously make a person like me look put together first thing on a Monday but colour?
