3x2 TURQUOISE: MY SPRING ACCENT COLOUR
Let me tell you a story of how turquoise became this spring's accent colour. I was looking for some sort of a "pop" to add to my wardrobe. A colour pop. I'd been browsing through online stores - online window shopping of sorts, and looking at handbags, trying to find one the colour of which would be so versatile I could wear it all the time. With a black dress or a white dress, pink shirt or blue trousers. My little colour quest...
It didn't take long for it to come to me: turquoise. That's my colour. We go way back when, turquoise and I. Back when I was 7 and me, my mum and grandma went on holiday to Tunisia. Those bright white walls with turquoise doors and window shutters. A beautiful colour, I thought, but back home it never seemed to fit into my European surroundings. And so I always admired it but never wore it, until I came across this crop top. The last piece in an h&m summer sale perhaps four years ago. I wore it a lot. Loved it for a year. Then put it in a drawer. I haven't stopped loving it, no, but it seems that turquoise and I have a little thing. We go round and round our separate ways and then now and then our paths cross. This is that time.
And since we made good - turquoise and I - I've seen a lot of people wearing it, handbags, backpacks and even shoes. They don't know I predicted this. They don't know it's my colour. Going through my belongings I found a turquoise bracelet and a turquoise ring, and it tells me what I knew all along. That we were meant to be.
What do you say? Will you make it your colour too?
(And if not turquoise, what's your colour that goes with everything you love? I'm collecting tips for summer ;) )
