Yesterday afternoon I went back to Zara on Robson and lol and behold, they had the tank top:
Of course they are crazy and only had smalls and mediums but in a burst of cleansing synchronicity, the medium fit me for once (usually Zara mediums fit around like, one of my arms).
After I bought it I started thinking more about reintroducing colour into my wardrobe. Now, when I was at the store I was like OH I SHOULD BUY LEMON YELLOW SHORT SHORTS AND A ROYAL BLUE BELT AND HOT PINK SANDALS TO GO WITH MY NEW TOP!!! but I think that is a little deranged and I would never actually wear all that at once. Instead, I’m going to take a slow approach and trying to incorporate one colourful item a week into my outfits. Sound too easy? It’s more about being frugal. With the exception of my new tank top, here are my clothes that aren’t grey/black/white/denim:
a. rainbow stripe terry cloth bikini (haven’t worn in years; might not fit)
b. olive-green floral dress (haven’t worn in years; might not fit)
c. rainbow/butterfly/star dress (love but too tight in bust; never worn)
d. turquoise peep-toe pumps
e. pale green tree print dress
f. multi-coloured floral skirt
So there you have it. Three dresses, one that might not fit and one that definitely doesn’t fit; one skirt; one pair of heels; and one bikini that might not fit and in any case, isn’t exactly appropriate for every day wear, especially in early spring. Basically, if I want to wear coloured clothes, I need to buy/dye/find/bed/borrow/steal them first!
