Wear It, Beat It

1/12/2015

Who else is surprised that I've actually incorporated a little bit of colour into my wardrobe for a change? Seeing as about 90% of the clothes I own are either black, white or grey, I thought it was about time to branch out into something other than monochrome. I've been eyeing this beautiful red coat from Warehouse for a while now and after spying it in the Asos January sale I had to snap one up for myself. It's the cosiest thing ever, perfectly oversized to fit a snug jumper underneath and when teamed with a black and white outfit (let's face it, I can only handle so much colour at once) I can't get enough of it!

Wearing red may seem part of the norm for some but today I'm taking part in Wear It, Beat It, an event organised by the British Heart Foundation, a charity that's very close to my own heart. I think it's so important to give back and help others and for over 50 years the BHF have been at the forefront of research that's transformed the lives of those living with heart and circulatory diseases.

The event takes place on Friday 6th February and you can join in by doing anything from wearing red - be it a piece of clothing or even a lipstick (I went for a slick of Maybelline Fab Orange myself), to hosting an event of your own whether it involves baking, having a red day at work or even just spending a night in with some red snacks and a film - I nominate Moulin Rouge! There's plenty of inspiration on the BHF site if you're struggling for ideas and you can also sign up for a free fundraising kit here.

Don't forget to upload your red day image onto Instagram and Twitter on the 6th using the hashtag #WearItBeatIt. I can't wait to see all your selfies!
