Stepping into Technicolour

Oh me, oh my, nothing says welcome Spring like a pop of colour. I was hoping the weather would follow suit with all my Springin’ and bait the sun into coming out, but it remained behind the clouds.. although it looks like we may have a bit of luck in the coming week!

This coat is in such a beautiful shade of yellow, I’d say mustard, something I would’ve probably shied away from wearing a couple of months back for fear it would make me stand out too much on the streets of London (I would’ve asked if they did it in black or grey), but here I am today, rather excited to step back into marvellous technicolour (I even bought Pink Tulips this week, instead of White Roses!).
I threw the coat on, synched in the waist with a gorgeous gold belt, and voila! I also wanted to have a bit of fun with the accessories, so I opted for this leopard print clutch and lace up heels to complement the rest of the outfit.

I’m looking forward to playing around more with this coat and a few other colourful gems too!

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend, and have a lovely Easter.

    Stunning coat!!!

  • Reply Igee Okafor April 5 2015 at 5:11 am


    You look gorgeous! Your hair looks fantastic, your skin looks heavenly. I love the choice of the coat and how you decided to pair it with the clutch. It really gives the look an element of animation. As a simplistic style enthusiast, I personally would have switched out the black shoes for another pair with less detail to really highlight the clutch.

    Lovely selections in this ensemble. Can’t wait for the next style post.
