Sunshine dressing...

When it's rainy and grey outside, you have two choices. One, dress in a cosy outfit and curl up on the sofa or two, get jazzed up and brave the outside. I tried both of these and I have to say, whilst I wasn't as warm, this outfit felt a lot more fun. 

Blazer: H&M, top: Dorothy Perkins, skirt: New Look, bag: Miss Selfridge, shoes: New Look,  cow: free with view
When I saw this lemon yellow beauty reduced in New Look, I snapped it up, I am obsessed with anything yellow at the moment and this is the perfect shade of lemon. [They don't have this skirt on their website but they have one which is equally lovely]


I thought the dash of hot pink would lift this from being too serious and add a bit of colour to a very gloomy day... Plus pink and yellow are my favourite colours at the moment so it seems fitting that I am featuring them  both in one outfit!


As you can see, the skirt itself is very sheer, despite being lined, so I pulled out my trusty slip to make it decent. I'm not sure quite why it was so see through but I thought I would rather be safe than sorry!


Some much needed height provided by these shoeboots, I only ever seem to wear them with maxi skirts!


I love stackable rings, I always used to feel awkward when I wore lots of jewellery piled up but Danni introduced me to the wonder of stackable rings and I have never looked back... not bad for 80p in the sale eh?! 

Do you prefer cosy or colourful in the rain? What are your favourite colour combinations?
P.S. I now have Pinterest and I am addicted...

loving this colour combination! the skirt remidns me of Belle from Beauty and the Beast... I'm odd. I don't mix things up too much but I do find that navy blue is an easy colour to mix with pink and red x

Love the outfit! Mixing bright colours is definitely the best way to combat the horrid dreary weather (says she who has just ordered yet another black dress...oops). I really like the yellow and pink together, it's something I'm going to keep in mind! xxx
