Navy, white and coral

This outfit has been a long time in the planning. Mark bought this skirt in the H&M sale for me last year for my birthday and I have been waiting a long time for the weather to be bright enough to wear it. It doesn't look like it in these photos but it was super sunny here, hence my lurking around in the shade! I wasn't sure how to make this less 'work-y' for the weekend but bare legs and coral accessories brightened it up no end, The stripes on this skirt are a very dark navy that looks black in some lights and blue in others so matching them are nigh on impossible. A white top would certainly be easier but I am obsessed with navy at the moment, it could be a bit gloomy for summer but paired with white and coral, it looks fresh rather than fusty. 

Top: Tu at Sainsbury's, skirt: H&M, bag: Clarks, shoes: Clarks
I wear this top a lot but it has never appeared on the blog before now, only over on Instagram, I guess I need to get better at taking photos during the week! I love the scalloped detailing on it, it makes it look like it is from somewhere way more expensive than Sainsbury's. Here's a better look at the Max Factor Colour Intensifying Balm in 'Charming Coral' that I wore in a recent outfit post, it is pretty but hardly groundbreaking colour!


This Clarks Timely Love bag is a recent addition to my wardrobe and I love it. It isn't the biggest bag I own but it is certainly one of the most fun! It is a gorgeous bright coral (yes, I am predictable!) and is roomy enough to fit my purse, bloods stuff and even my keys, not bad for something this petite...


I love the length of this skirt (just above the knee is definitely the most flattering length on me) and the mini pleats are super fun- what more could you ask for in a summery skirt? I fell in love with these shoes when I saw them on Gillian at the beginning of the year. You know how much I love coral and these shoes are like the summery version of my favourite pair- there's no way I could leave them in the shop!


I mean, they have shiny silver heels, what more can you ask for?!


What colour combinations can't you resist?
