Tickled pink...

Top: ASOS, skirt: Zara, shoes: Miss Selfridge, belt: Primark, bag: Miss Selfridge
Certain outfits really lift your mood and this was one of them. The hot pink of the skirt makes any outfit feel fun and instantly puts a smile on your face. I was meant to be saving this top for my upcoming holiday but I thought it went really well. The skirt is fairly short so I thought the shirt was a perfect match as it made it a lot more demure. 


The broderie anglaise detail adds a bit of interest to an otherwise basic top and makes it a bit prettier too. The top is nice and light and I can imagine it would be perfect for when the weather warms up. I am always on the look out for basic items with a twist and this falls into that category perfectly... The fact that it is sleeveless is really the icing on the cake for me- I really don't get on with tops with sleeves as I am always too warm, especially in the summer...


This is my new baby, the gorgeous satchel bag from Miss Selfridge which I bought at the weekend. Every time I look at it, I fall more in love. The shape is just perfect and the colour seems to go with everything in my wardrobe. I cannot express how much I love it and so many people have complimented me on it, that it has well and truly paid for itself!


This outfit was topped off with this mini hat clip from Miss Selfridge. I love quirky hair accessories and this adds a certain 'je ne sais quoi' whenever I wear it which I absolutely love.. 

Do you have any accessories that you love wearing? What do you look for when you are buying clothes?

Ooh this post makes me want a bright skirt for the Summer (: Perhaps a coral red/orange or a mustard yellow... I usually look for a fit that flatters my body shape but leaves lots to the imagination. xx

Beautiful look. I love the colour pink on you, and absolutely love the shoes. Wearing pink always lifts my mood as well.

Ok, I do, however, need to steal that bag from you (or buy it myself). I loved it in the last post who featured it in and it looks so much more amazing in these shots.
