Colour me Happy

I haven't been my usual happy self lately. Last week I fell down the stairs, an Ambulance ride and a Hospital visit later saw me limping on home with a badly sprained ankle. My ankle (or as I call it my Elephant Foot) is still almost double the size, so I haven't ventured far from my front door for over a week now. Brisbane is also a grey place at the moment, we have probably seen one day of sunshine since the start of the month. Needless to say I needed something to brighten up my week, so when my parents offered to take me to lunch this past weekend I knew I needed to wear some colour!

City Chic's Kaftan tops are my new obsession, my favourite being the Garden Floral Kimono Top which I am wearing in the above photo. I love everything about it, the colours are beautiful and instantly cheered me up, it's the perfect light weight over shirt, it ensures I have arm coverage but remain cool and comfortable. I plan on collecting all of the Kaftan's as an easy way to brighten up my wardrobe.

The Bahama-rama collection dropped last week and along came even more colour, these are some of my MUST HAVES!

1. Stripe Play Maxi Skirt - I am absolutely in love with this skirt, it is gorgeous! I would wear it exactly how it is shown on the gorgeous model. Perfect with sandals for a BBQ or with black wedges and a bolero for a funky NYE outfit.

2. Lace Back Print Tunic - The moment I saw this Tunic I HAD to have it so I rushed to my computer and ordered it. The print is absolutely gorgeous and the tunic is very flattering. I will be wearing mine on Christmas Day!

3. Flash Zip Tunic - I adore Tunics and this is no exception. The purple colour is amazing and I love how versatile the tunics are. I could wear it to a festival with tights and sandals or with heels and stockings for a night on the town. 

I am finally embracing colour in my wardrobe after years of shunning it for all black pieces and, I have to say I am feeling GREAT! Are you embracing colour this season? What are your favourite coulourful pieces from City Chic?

This will be my last post before Christmas so I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy your day and please stay safe.
