Tangerine dreams...

Nobody tell Pantone but I think I may be a year behind schedule. Tangerine is definitely the colour of the year for me, not emerald! ;) I picked up this M&S jumper for a few pounds in a local charity shop after I fell in love with the tangerine shade. I love bright colours when it is grey outside!

Dress: Tu via charity shop, jumper: Marks & Spencer via charity shop, tights: Primark,  shoes: Betty London flats
This dress has been getting a lot of wear over the last couple of months and as the weather seems to just be getting colder, I have switched my sheer shirts for cosy jumpers. The combination of brown and orange feels very 1970s to me but this orange lipstain helps to make it feel more modern.  It also helped me look more awake too, never an easy task at 6.00 am!


I should have probably worn some heeled shoes with this outfit (hello stumpy legs!) but I really love these shoes. The leather is so soft and the arch support makes them so comfy, I want a pair in every colour! (I think the blue pair may be next on my list...)


What's your colour this year?

I agree, it's very 70s, but in a good way! I think I've said it before, but you suit this bright orange colour soo well! :)

This is a gorgeous outfit. I feel all warm just looking at you.

(Not in a creepy way. Sorry that sounded creepy.)
