I could get my crankies on right now and have my say about media, Australian female swimmers, cellulite and questioning fitness. But I won’t. Because I will not be able to stop.
Instead – in the proper spirit of all things Olympic Games – I’m pulling on my patriotic pants. Waving around the equivalent of green and gold bunting in the only way I know how
I’m giving an OI, OI, OI to is all my favourite fashion stores.
This spring they’ve embraced the green and gold so well that even I’m convinced this is no longer a naf colour combination … a combination previously only ever seen on … well … Australian athletes at sporting events.
As an Aussie who is going to be in the U S of A for most of Olympic Games, I doubt I will see very much coverage of Australian athletes doing anything at the London Olympics. Especially if they whip US butt in the pool.
So, I will console myself by wearing green and/or yellow at any available opportunity.
If you’re playing along at home … and cheering on our athletes, cellulite or not, then why not join in and add a splash of green or gold to your outfits over the next fortnight?
Here’s five ways you can (warning: it may involve retail therapy)
Now, post-Olympics when you really can’t stomach the thought of any more green and gold combos, here’s what I’d do.
Team green with blue (yes, it can now be seen without anything in between); pop your yellow back with a cobalt blue for a bit of a sky/sun look; and dare I say it? Just add orange.
If all this seems a tad too much colour, remember the easiest way to tone it down is to add in a big, fat neutral. As we head into spring, I’d make that neutral a light tan or white. Or both.
Have a great weekend. I’ll be packing so I can put together my “light” packing post for you before I fly to New York. Hope you have a good one.
PS. Would love to know … do you get the Olympic Fever? Are you prepared for late nights and lots of cheering? What events do you like most to watch? And could you wear green and gold?
