COLOUR OF THE SEASON



These shots were originally going to be taken against a perfect blogger white wall, but (*dad joke alert*) Doris soon blew our away our plans! The winds were so strong along the road that I could barely stand up straight... so after a little explore we found a place much more sheltered from the wind, and you know what... I totally love the bright pink next to the moody blue! So thanks, Doris!
On to the coat, and what a coat it is! You wouldn't be wrong thinking vibrant fluffy pink would be a little out of my comfort zone, but with a new found love of pinks and reds I couldn't say no to it! I thought I might feel a bit too stand out in a sea of blacks, navy and neutrals, but it actually made me felt good to be a pop of spring colour on these dull days we've been having. I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple, with a stripey tee and converse. I decided to keep the bag plain too, but can I just add how soft the suede is and what a perfect size it is for a camera! I'd been searching for a staple navy cross body bag for a while now, so I'm happy I can finally cross it off the list.

DRESSES OVER TROUSERS



This is an example of when you put together an outfit and don't realise how matchy-matchy it is until you see the photos afterwards... haha! I don't care though as I have been loving these shoes and this knit and this bag so much I just decided I needed to wear them all at once! Navy is definitely my favourite colour of the moment - especially in the form of striped tops - so these shoes are getting a lot of wear, as they pair just perfectly! I like that the flatform gives a *slightly* more fashuurn edge without looking too try hard, and they are just the right height and shape to be able to walk about in without twisting my ankle over every uneven surface (unlike my Superga ones in this blog post)!


Pairing perfectly with flatforms, and a look I have been loving for months is wearing dresses and long line shirts over trousers - and with Lizzy and Brittany, and a whole host of Scandi bloggers rocking this, it must be a trend to watch! The much cooler cousin of the trusty black tights, this is the only way to keep legs warm when wearing dresses in these colder months... And a style I'll be adapting to wear right in to summer! *if I close my eyes and wish hard enough will the sun come any quicker?*

Outfit:
Warehouse Knit Dress (similar here), Primark Leopard Celine Dupe Bag (similar here and here), New Look High Waist Trousers (similar here), Carvela Navy Flatform Brogues

WHY RUST IS THE NEW CAMEL



Remember when everybody and their mum decided they just had to buy a camel coat? Well, it's time to put them back on the hanger and invest in a rust coloured one instead. The bolder, more universally flattering colour than camel, rust is the new neutral for the remainder of the cold weather and right in to summer! And with copper being such a hit for homeware, jewellery and beauty (in the form of copper eye shadows), rust is the clothing colour adaptation!... Because let's be honest, metallic copper clothing would only look flattering on someone who hasn't discovered cheese or mini eggs!
While I've been loving pairing it with all black outfits (no change there!), as a neutral tone it can be paired with a range of colours - with my top picks being white, navy and khaki for the summer months. For now though, a striped roll neck and my biggest shopper bag makes this my every day go to outfit for these colder spells!

Outfit:
Topshop Rust Wool Jacket (similar here and here), Zara Striped Jersey Roll Neck (similar here), Topshop Black Leigh Jeans, Warehouse Shopper Bag (similar here), Black Low Converse
