Outfit Post: How To Wear Colour & Brighten Up A Rainy Day

Outfit Post Amsterdam

There is something so calming about wandering the streets and canals in Amsterdam, even in the rain we had on this day. I could have stepped out in my jeans and a jumper, but I decided to brighten up the morning with my amazing raindrop skirt from Lucy Teacup instead and when I saw a little old lady admiring my skirt on the ferry I knew I’d made a good choice! Here’s my tips on how to wear colour and brighten up a rainy day:

Papel Picado Mexican Bunting Necklace by Onetenzeroseven

I bought this skirt first at our Etsy Made Local fair at Christmas and everything else in the outfit was bought to match. I actually picked up these tights in M&S outlet for £1.75 and they match perfectly! When you’re looking for things to go with a certain piece of clothing you own, try taking the item with you when you go shopping or at least have a photo of it to hand.

These gorgeous clogs are also from Etsy and are by Lotta From Stockholm for a bargainous £56.50! I really struggled to find some shoes to go with this skirt, but I was determined not to wear it with black! I eventually picked out the pink raindrop to go with my pink hair too.

How to wear colour, colorful outfit ideas

The top was a last minute purchase the day before we went away to Amsterdam – I have a blue top that matches the skirt and tights, but I wanted something more colourful and less matchy. This top is from Wallis, where I wouldn’t normally shop, but the fit is lovely and it was only £16.

It was pure coincidence that the Papel Picado necklace from my new collection picks out most of the colours in this gorgeous skirt, but I love that it reintroduces the colours a little further up to balance the entire outfit and is a perfect example of how to wear colour. Jewellery, scarves and accessories are a great way to pick out colours in your outfit. I added a denim shirt as a cover up too.

    I like the skirt. I’m definitely a fan of ‘jewel’ tones and often wear all the colours :)
