Ignoring those January blues in nude and blackFashion
What January blues ?
If you are talking about blue jeans then I’m in but I’m not wasting a second more on January blues.
I’m putting my positive pants on this year and completely forgetting about the post-Christmas doldrums.
Pink or nude paired with black has always been a favourite colour combination of mine. And when the weather is dull or grey outside, rather than dressing in all dark shades too, why not lighten the mood a little ?
January is dark enough, without making your wardrobe suffer too. I’ve added a pink shirt underneath a black soft blazer and added a light pair of blue jeans for extra texture.

These denims from Citizens Of Humanity are that perfect light blue wash that march right into summer.
Pair these with a black blazer and you have a match made in heaven.
Add your favourite blazer and ankle boots for extra structure and you have an outfit in one.
I love straw and raffia bags and any opportunity, even in January, and I’m adding one to my outfit.
This oversized gem is the Grace bay from Heidi Klein. Its large size is very of the moment but also madly practical. I often end up having to carry the kitchen sink around and it’s a terrific stylish option for that wrist weary past-time.
But also come Summer, or your next sunny vacation, it will really come into it’s own.
It does at times during these dreary days feel like January is not going to end. But as a wise old friend of mine once said – isn’t great to be alive.
Clothes are definitely one fun way of uplifting your mood.
I always have a little re-think about what can be done with my closet to give an extra lift this time of year.
By Far boots have become a favourite of mine after spotting them on Instagram. They are high quality and soft as butter and I adore their pointy slim finish.
