Outside My Comfort Zone #20

I recently posted on Twitter asking if there were any blog challenges I could participate in and was offered to join Outside My Comfort Zone (OMCZ) - I'm very excited to be taking part! This challenge is 'The Colour of Confidence' and was chosen by Vicky* who wrote: 'My theme is going to be 'The Colour of Confidence'.  For me, red is the colour of confidence and everything I wear it, be it lipstick or clothing; I feel an extra boost. What is your confidence colour?'

I have to admit I've really struggled with this, as I don't feel that there's a specific colour that makes me feel confident - my favourite colour is purple and perhaps that's my colour of confidence, but I don't tend to wear purple clothes. I umm'd and ahh'd and decided to just think about an outfit that makes me feel confident, and my date on Monday night gave me the perfect opportunity to dress up. I wore my New Look Inspire Blue Chiffon Ruffle Sleeve Dress (£19.99, sizes 18-28) and teamed it with a recent purchase, the Inspire version of this Black Sequin Fluffy Shrug (which isn't online anymore, but I'm pretty sure it was £19.99 and available in sizes 18-28, I only purchased it in store this week). I was going to say that my colour of confidence is green, but apparently it's blue!

I felt fantastic and, in case you're wondering, the date went very well ;)

    1. Thanks lovely! It's odd because it was and it's still in store, I got it in Wood Green but I would imagine Oxford St would have it. I'm wearing mine on Saturday though haha ;) x
