There's a crack in my gray-brown glasses...


"Do not expect the world to look bright, if you habitually wear gray-brown glasses."
- Charles William Eliot
Im a lover of a neutral look. 

Outfits with the black and white and creme combination 
always looks so chic to me.

But I have a problem.

I find it difficult to ever pull that off because I'm a sucker for bright colours.

When I'm in a store I gravitate towards the black denser areas,
but more often than not I'm torn away by brightly coloured things 
that catch my eye across the room. 

The bright highlighter yellow neon colour took my eye on the daily commute. 
I saw a garment (the first one I'd seen in NZ in this colour) while I was on the bus.
I immediately fell in love, but on closer inspection I didn't actually like the shirt, 
just the colour.
Eventually I found another top with a similar colour so I could fulfill my bright colour craving,
well, until the next thing takes my eye....

neon t-shirt - dotti
spike neclace - equip
other necklace - Lovisa
ring and spike bracelet - Asos
leather bracelet with charms - Eclectic Eccentricity

So what colour have you been loving lately?
What's been making it through the gap in your gray-brown glasses?
