Peach parfait...

Just as I thought we were finally moving into Spring time, back came the rain. It has been utterly miserable here for the past few days and so I have been looking for some brighter pieces to wear. I wore this outfit a few weeks ago in similar weather and the coral skirt was the perfect antidote to add some cheer to the gloomy days. This Warehouse skirt was an absolute bargain in the Christmas sales - for just £5 I got the perfect A-line skirt in one of my favourite colours. Thank you shopping gods! (I also bought this dress at the same time, it was definitely a good day to go shopping!) Warehouse is one of those brands where I love their clothes but I find them just that little bit too expensive to shop at, unless there is a sale. I absolutely love every Warehouse thing I own (this shirt and top get a lot of wear) but I have never bought anything full price from them...

Cardigan: BHS via Mark's mum, top: New Look, necklace: Dorothy Perkins via charity shop, skirt: Warehouse at Debenhams, tights:Tesco, shoes: Office. 
 The material feels like a mixture of crepe paper (remember those art lessons at school?!) and thick coated cotton, which means it keeps its shape nicely. I also love the high waist as it holds in my food baby nicely ;) If we ever get some proper sunshine this year, I plan to wear it with my oversized denim shirt and some tan sandals...


Recently I have been brushing out my curls into soft waves, which I have never been able to do before (thanks frizzy hair!) I really love it, it looks quite retro to me but that could be due to the glasses! I'm wearing the infamous Revlon lipbutter in 'Peach Parfait' here and my lucky necklace which matched the skit perfectly. I knew hoarding would come in handy at some point ;)


Which shops do you only ever buy from in the sales? Are you a hoarder?

I love this skirt, the colour is perfect for spring and what a bargain! I tend to only buy from Oasis in the sales - I find it quite over-priced otherwise but they always have good sales bargains. x

the skirt looks lovely on you, such a great colour! I don't shop too much in the sales, but Urban Outfitters used to have good ones! x

Dani said...

Absolutely love this outfit :) the skirt is really gorgeous and suits you so well, and I love the stripes of the top peeping out from under the cardigan, for some reason that's just really appealing to me haha! I like how the colours in this nod to spring but it still looks cosy! xx

Warehouse is amazing for sale stuff! I never go in there to shop usually... but their online shop is kind of amazing, I bought an oversized berry colour blazer from there and I love it. This peach looks lovely, bring on the sunshine! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

This weather is so rubbish, I am so cold. A bit of colour definitely helps to brighten things up though. Love the colour of your skirt, it looks amazing with the striped top.

Eloise said...

Maria I love this! The colour suits you so well.
And I know what you mean about warehouse, it's not ridic expensive but it's that little bit out of a price range that you find hard to justify!
