I can’t be the only one to notice that Pistachio is having a moment this year? Green is never really a colour I even think to pick up, unless of course it’s Christmas, so I was surprised when I stuck this little olive green number into my Topshop Basket. I do have to say, this is the only thing I’ve bought from Topshop in some time. I’m really trying not to spend there right now if I can help it. I’m hyper aware that everyones focus is (and if it isn’t, it should be) on our planet and the effects of fast fashion.
I always feel like so.much.stuff comes on to the shelves in the summer, don’t you think? The British summer time is so short, we do not need an entire wardrobe that caters to three days of 20degree heat, a few good quality things that can mix and match and transition through seasons is always best. We have hundreds of people in our feeds, piles of magazines, pumping advert after advert down our necks screaming we need this, and we need that. Guys, all we need is health and happiness. Seriously, it’s nice to inspire and be inspired but I think I’m really going to try and focus on working with what i’ve got instead of spend, spend, spend. I’m trying to look into how I influence, and choose my wording when I do very, very carefully. I’d love to know your thoughts. Sx
