One of my favourite things to come out of lockdown has been adding a creative dose of colour to my day thanks to the #InstaRainbowChallenge, created by London stylists, vintage aficionados and colour queens Zeena Shah and Natalie Wall.  Inspired by the cheerful rainbows displayed in windows up and down the country showing support for key workers, the challenge invites everybody to embrace colour and dressing up, even if they have nowhere to go (another good hashtag).  Get involved to brighten your grid with multicoloured looks, reignite your passion for fashion and give the leggings, jumpers and top knots a break.  I really enjoyed dressing up, going through old travel photos and sharing rainbow content, so I thought I'd share here too...
