Burnt orange is not really a colour I associate with summer, for me it always conjures up images of log fires and crunchy leaves (what can I say, I'm an Autumn girl at heart!) but this cropped jacket has been perfect for covering up at work recently. I last wore this skirt here and I can't believe how time has flown, so many things have changed since that post!

The shape and length of this skirt is perfect for work, especially when its warm outside. These photos were taken around 5.45am on Wednesday morning and the temperature went to a rather muggy 23 °C so I was glad of my bare legs and sleeveless blouse!
I picked this Reiss top up in a local charity shop as I loved the blush pink colour and the ruffles down the front but I was never sure what to wear it. The best part though was the fact it was the grand total of £5! It is fairly long in the body but the colour matched perfectly with this skirt and the neckline was high enough to be 'office appropriate'. I love the fact that it is lined as well, so many shops don't do this and I really wish they would!
Quite by accident, I had bought this skinny belt in a pack of three from Primark recently (for 50p!) and the orange matched perfectly, never a given, especially if you try and match colours between shops!
What do you wear to work when it is warm? Do you associate particular colours with seasons?
