Pretty in pink...

It's inevitable when you have been blogging for as long as I have, that certain pieces pop up time and time again and I have loved this bright pink blazer and zebra printed scarf combination ever since I first picked it up in 2012. Bright colours are definitely my favourite thing to wear and despite pink being a bit of a divisive colour, I can't resist it! I decided to wear my new favourite jeans and the faded grey was the perfect colour to tone down the Barbie connotations, good job past Maria! These photos were taken a few weeks ago when we still had light in the mornings and I am already missing the early sunrises. Autumn is my favourite time of year (I don't even mind when it rains!) but I definitely don't enjoy the dark mornings... Won't someone think of the fashion bloggers?! ;) Mark reminded me that I had missed my 5 year blogging anniversary last week and although I am (clearly) rubbish at remembering dates, I just wanted to thank everyone who reads this little blog- you're all awesome! 

Jacket: H&M, top: Matalan, scarf: New Look, jeans:  Warehouse, shoes: Clarks, smug face: model's own
I'm not sure why I look quite so smug in these pictures but never mind! I have the tendency to look a little grey without sunlight so bright blusher (I am currently loving Natural Collection in 'Sweet Cheeks') and even brighter lipstick to cheer up my pallid looking skin. I love Revlon's Just Bitten Cherish stick and Mac's Impassioned but am keen to expand my bright pink lipstick collection- any suggestions are welcome! I have to pay special tribute to this scarf too, it is just such an unusual print and is perfect for snuggling into at work, especially if you rather be at home in bed!


Without the scarf though, I swear this looks like a completely different outfit! This Matalan top has been on constant rotation recently and despite turning pink in the great washing disaster of 2014 ™ , Mark's mum fixed it for me and it is now hanging back in my wardrobe. I almost cried with relief when she showed me the clothes that she had fixed, the woman is a genius!


What would you like to see on Frills 'n' Spills? Any recommendations for pink lipstick?

Hello, I've never commented before but have been reading for ages and wanted to recommend my favourite pink lipstick - Lipstick Queen's Hot Rose Sinner. It wears like a dream and is such a perfect colour.

I love the pink jacket! I can't believe how different the look is when you remove the scarf :) I think I may have to invest in a colourful blazer, my one is black and fairly boring! x

I love the combination of hot pink with darker tones. I don't wear blazers, nor scarves, but I'm definitely tempted to now! xx

I really love the pink!

Pink really suits you! As far as pink lipstick recommendations go, Brighton Rock from Topshop is a lovely bright pink matte finish, and Speak Louder by MAC which is a more raspberry creamsheen finish.
