Coral is one of the colours that is guaranteed to lift your mood, it suits pretty much everyone and is perfect for this time of year too. I wear it all year round but it looks best with a bit of sunshine. Although it doesn't look like it here, it was super sunny when I wore this and this bright outfit matched my cheery mood perfectly. Navy wouldn't necessarily be the first colour I would pair with coral but I actually love it- it grounds the colour nicely and makes it slightly more work appropriate. I picked up this dress when Mark and I went to Gloucester Quays at the beginning of the month and couldn't be more thrilled with it. It is sleeveless which I prefer and thin layers like this cardi mean it is ideal for this time of year. I really love Spring as it is sunny and bright but not overly warm which is ideal for me and my faulty thermostat!

Dress: Gap (via Gloucester Quays outlet), cardigan: Gap via Matilda, shoes: Office
This Max Factor lipstick (Bewitching Coral) is a lovely bright pinky-coral that is one of my favourites. I can't resist a bright lipstick and this one matches perfectly. Lipstick is definitely my weapon of choice for feeling pulled together- I knew I was feeling better this week when I reached for my bright lippie again!

The print on this dress reminded me of one of my favourite tops and I absolutely adore the geometric print. Apologies for the expanse of my skin on show here but I just wanted to show off the little bow on the back of the dress- isn't it cute?! 

I wish this skirt was a tad longer but beggars can't be choosers and everything else about this is pretty much perfect. I was going to wear my new coral shoes but it was too matchy matchy, even for me! ;)

Are you a fan of outlet shopping? Which colours scream sunshine to you?

Coral really suits you! It looks awful on me so I'll have to live vicariously through you.

I love Gap for dresses like these. Really comfy yet pretty. The bow detail at the back is very sweet.
