The colour of my mood takes me to something bright and cheerful today, exuding energy and motivation to celebrate life, hence my repetitive behaviour to revert back to the beauty and sensation of Citron colours. It's a slight departure from the heavy weights of winter, and not to mention, the colour of my profession..... allowing me some fun as it creates a huge reaction with a unpredictable element of surprise, since career girls are not expected to look funky or colourful! But somehow the luminosity of this colour breaks the barrier and allows me to set myself free from the stark rigidity of a Black power suit and perception that female solicitors should only be wearing serious outfits. It's a great feeling of relief slipping into bright colours if you've spent a few days in court arguing, debating and deliberating in colours not conducive to a creative world. I've seen Citron Green come and go over the past few years, and all of  a sudden, popping up again, hard to miss I'd say. My ground rule for wearing bright colours and loud print, is to keep jewellery and accessories to a minimum. 

Who said lawyers cannot sport fashionable clothes?
