The Black Clothing Ban

Well, Spring is here, and I am noticing, as I do every year, that I own an awful lot of black clothing. This daisy print skirt that I kindly received for my birthday (Forever 21 - cannot be found online however) has really spurred something in me, and while I am very happy with my perhaps dreary (I like to think cool) wardrobe, I want some more colour introduced into my life. Cue, The Black Clothing Ban. Well, I say ban, it really is more of a Reigning in the Black Clothing Mission. But that doesn't have the right ring to it.

I have decided to pledge to myself that I will not buy any more black clothing during the next few months, because as much as I love the feeling of wearing black, sometimes it can be a sunny day and you just want colour. I will make exceptions for buying basics, such as cami or crop tops to wear under other outfits, or a simple pair of leggings, for example. But, no "real" black clothing. Instead, I will look for some coloured and patterned clothing to wear, which can also be paired with the plenty black I already have.

I have already talked my mum into pledging to take part in The Black Clothing Ban, can I rope you lot in too?

  1. This is such a good idea :) I always try not to wear too much black, unless going on a night out I ALWAYS seem to end up wearing a LBD!

    I'd love if you could take a look at my blog and let me know what you think :)

  2. I didn't think I was that bad, but when I looked at my wardrobe from a far it was a like a wave of darkness. It's only when the sun come out and you get really hot that I notice I have too much black on.

    1. I know the feeling! Black is just foolproof, ha. I'm hoping we get better weather here so I'm inspired to wear the colours.
