Dabbling With Different Colours

Pink is not a colour i own a lot of. But lately i've enjoyed dabbling with it a bit more. This coat is actually from a  few years ago, and each winter i drag it out from hibernation and fall head over heels for it all over again. Its such a great vibrant colour it just makes a grey day much brighter and cheery. Hot pink is definitely a mood lifter!

 Grey is another colour i never usually buy. Infact i've pretty much avoided it in prior years, thinking it dull and boring. How wrong i was, i have a new found love for this colour and its flattering shades. Both the grey bag and scarf are (cheap) new purchases and i am so happy to have bought them, the scarf has barely left my neck and this box shape bag feels so luxe for its small price tag. Grey, i like you a lot... lets become better acquainted shall we?

Then topped it all off with a hit of teal, just because i do love me some teal. 
Such a simple outfit but i was really pleased with it. 
A basic white tee and black skinnies turned in to a bright cheerful outfit on a dark gloomy day.

Are you dabbling with any new to you colours lately? 
I'd love to know what you've been trying!
 Jeans & Bag: Matalan
Coat: Marks & Spencer (few years ago)
