I love colour and have never shied away from wearing it. That being said I know many people do not feel the same way and to be honest I’m not okay with that. I think we should wear colour. I don’t mean you need to look like a box of crayons or a colouring book picture my five year old coloured. Or stay away from the black and white. Just mix it up a bit. Start with accessories like bracelets, belts, shoes or scarves.

Wearing a blazer or blouse in a pretty yellow or green will do your face a service and take years off. Don’t like yellow or green? What about red, blue, pink or orange? I know there is something for everyone. You just need to find it. Hell, I’ll settle for Navy.

I’d also like to thank Cocoa Jewelry for the earrings and bracelet. I first discovered Cocoa jewelry at the Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Bar. I’ve purchased several pieces over the last year and was flattered when they sent me a BOX full of items from their latest collection. I’ve been getting compliments from my sisters (who’s opinion I value and both could have their own style blogs) on the items and have been wearing pieces all week. Cocoa Jewelry is a Canadian success story and will be found in Canadian locations of Target as well. Please know that all these opinions are my own.

If you want to see what colours other Canadian bloggers are wearing head over to Fashion Magazine Style Panel here.

I will be posting World MasterCard Fashion Week pictures as well. Just need to figure out where to start.

    The jacket looks fantastic on you and the simple cut lets the colour do the talking. You are right – a bit of colour never hurt anyone and does lift the spirits (and the face). I was trying to imagine the jacket in a navy tone and it would not have the same impact at all. A fab buy. And yellow is my second favourite colour after all.


    Love the yellow blazer Iva! You always add the right amount of color to your outfit and make the whole look very chic, sophisticated, and refined! Gorgeous as usual!




    Love it! And I totally agree, everyone should wear colour. Especially now, during this seemingly endless winter .. we need a bit of sunshine, even if it’s through our clothes. You look fab:)


    That colour is amazing on you – really does lift the look and the mood I suspect also! Looking forward to seeing your Fashion Week photos, Avril x


    You are right about colour and I am continuing my personal colour challenge. I bought several bright coloured shirts and a skirt recently and can’t wait to get my colourful shoes out again.

    I am wearing a similar yellow blazer here

    I love yellow! And this shade is great for you. As I was wearing my cheetah coat in a sea of black in the subway last night I really felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb and wanted to tell everyone hey, there are other colours than black!


    I too embrace color and love this yellow on you, Fabulous!


    Tou look beautiful in that color!


    This looks stunning on you and I am loving the yellow this season but ..
    When I was 12 (in the 80s) I wore a SCREAMING OUT LOUD BRIGHT YELLOW jacket from a UK store called C&A with teal jumper underneath and a black mini skirt – I am actually going to need therapy for that memory ….

    I’ll stick with lemon jeans and admire you in yours for now!


    Love this jacket on you Iva, I have the same one and am I love with it. Yellow is my favourite colour at the minute, I can’t get enough of it.


    Hi, That blazer is soooh lovely. Does it come up small? xxxx


    Colors are definitely great! I love colors because they bring out life everyday =)
    You definitely look great in that yellow blazer.


    I think that jacket looks great on you. I love yellow but it loOks wrong next to my face – but hey, that’s what scarves are for!! Saw a beautiful yellow jacket today but it was definitely the wrong shade for me!


    I love color too! And totally agree… it does wonders for our complexion. I can’t wear yellow, but I wear just about everything else. 🙂
