Casual coral...

From sleek to super casual, I can't seem to make up my mind about what I want to wear to work! We have all had those days when we feel rubbish and this was the perfect comfy outfit. This jumper was another gift from Matilda and has become my go-to for when I want something easy and breezy to wear. Although I wouldn't normally wear something so oversized, I love the short sleeves and bright colour. Coral is my favourite colour to wear in the spring and summer and it is perfect for adding a splash of colour to a grey day (just look how miserable this weather is!) The one thing I'm not so keen on is how short in the body it is as I have to find another top to layer underneath it but maybe I just have a weirdly long torso?! 

Jumper: Gap c/o Matilda, top: Primark, jeans: Topshop, trainers: Keds

I had my hair cut again but this was how long it had got before I went for the chop again, I couldn't believe how quickly it had grown! I have been experimenting with hair products more recently and both Percy & Reed's Wonder Balm and Umberto Giannini Scrunching Curl Friends have been top of my list. My hair has always been prone to frizz and these are perfect for smoothing out my flyaways- I would definitely recommend them to my fellow curly/frizzy haired gals!


It's been a while since I have worn my Keds but the colours matched this jumper perfectly and they are just so flipping comfy, I spent the whole day bouncing around the office! I am heading to Edinburgh for a few days in a couple of weeks and I will definitely be taking a pair (or two) of my Keds with me, they are the best shoes to wear if you have to do lots of walking... Speaking of Edinburgh, do you have any recommendations of things for us to do whilst we are there?


Which colours can't you resist? Any recommendations for things to do in Edinburgh?

Loving that shade of coral on you, looks awesome, and I've yet to try Keds, but their laidback prints keep catching my eye- I'm pretty hooked on my converse for similar reasons, but they're not quite as cute as your Keds!

I'm loving the coral - such a cheerful colour. I've not got any Keds, I'm not really a trainers person although I've just seen a pair of the new Gola x Liberty collection in a print which matches the fabric I've just used for a dress, so I'm sort of tempted by them. Never been to E'burgh but I hope you have a lovely time!

Oh I need those shoes!!

You're not the only one having issues with the length of jumpers - I'm like an old woman in shops these days. I pick things up, tut, and say something along the lines of "If only it was about 4 inches longer"...

Aw, love those cute floral keds especially with that coral jumper. You seem to rock everything for work! x

Such a gorgeous colour! Definitely head to Edinburgh castle, the zoo is lovely too (Pandas!) and Brass Monkey is amazing too. Cafe Marlayne is lovely as well :)

This is such a lovely colour on you! Coral is definitely one of my fave shades for SS - along with turquoise!

Wow, what a fab colour! I have those days too where I just don't know what to wear to work, work attire is similar to yours, super casual and i tend not to wear my nicest things to work and generally stick to certain outfits!

The castle obvs! I had such a great day there a few summer's ago. Bright colours suit you, I hope they suit me too.
