(I think the title of this post is a bit of an oxymoron. I love oxymorons. My favourite EVER kind-of oxymoron was the name of a lady who worked in my local post office – ‘Candy Stern’.)
Greetings from NYC! I’m coming to you from bed on the Upper West Side at 7.30am, so apologies if this post is slightly rambly. I’m still suffering with jet lag but being back in my favourite city is helping – more on that in another post though, as today we’re talking nude!
I’m rather pale, so I’ve always found nude-coloured clothing quite difficult to pull off. I think the key is in the shade – a slightly pinker tone, like this beautiful Connie jacket sent to me by French Connection, doesn’t drain me of all colour and looks great when paired with dark denims and fierce shoes.
This is my staple outfit for busy days – I love the relaxed fit of the blazer and find myself throwing it on over pretty much everything. Simple yet effective.
Do you wear nude shades or do you find them difficult to pull off?
