What I Wore | A Pop of Pink

Hat: Topshop. Bag: Nica Handbags. Coat: Zara (similar here) Skirt: Fashion Union*. Top: Karma Clothing*. Necklace: Strange of London*. Earrings: Little Nell*. Boots: Joules*
Every now and then I will let a pop of colour slip in to my wardrobe and today it’s in the form of a coat and skirt. Running with the 60’s vibe, this beautiful little miniskirt from Fashion Union epitomises the era and the small dogtooth detail helps to keep it current - I love the soft tones and the way it compliments my trusty Zara coat.

Whilst my heart will always be true to my love for foxes, I have recently taken quite the interest in bumble bees - especially in the form of jewellery. This beautiful honeycomb ball necklace comes from a new discovery, Strange of London. Taking inspiration from the beautifully British countryside, creating innovative pieces to help raise awareness of the natural world that surrounds us. I love how dainty it is and that it sits perfectly in-between my collarbones. Paired with these gems from Little Nell, I love the contrast of the turquoise against my red lips and hair, helping to break up the outfit.

I always find a miniskirt quite the task to style, but this long sleeved cropped polo neck from Karma Clothing feels like it was made for it. It sits perfectly just above my belly button and meets the skirt showing just the right amount of midriff...I mean, it’s a day time look so we wan’t to keep a little covered. The fabric is soft and silky and the sleeves are loose enough to be able to roll up, which is something I love (big hater of super tight arms on tops!)

Of course, I wouldn’t be going anywhere without a pair of boots and I’m pretty sure I’ve found perfection in these bad boys. Joules are a locally founded store to me and their countryside clothing vibe is clear to see in these pair of tan Chelsea boots. It’s so lovely to know that these exact shoes were handmade in my hometown, it just makes me love them even more. Not only do they fit like a glove, but I absolutely love the blue tag to the back and the floral detail that fills the inside – it’s like slipping my foot in to a little shoe garden...perfection.

Shop my look...

Oh you look so pretty as always!! I'm a bit afraid of pink, and can't say I suit it hmm...
On another note...I have that crop top WOOOO, so I can re-create a mini Megan look in my little wardrobe (or lack of, damn having lots of clothes and no storage) :D

Bring on Summer when crop-top wear-age can be permitted on a daily basis without terminal risk to kidneys...

I really love that you mixed your pinks; I think its fun to take one colour and wear it in different shades. Your red hair really compliments the pink hues as well. I'm a huge fan of sixties fashions and that dogtooth skirt is right up my street. Great outfit for the changing seasons, especially with the added touch of those chelsea boots. I think chelsea boots are a great staple for any wardrobe because they go with so many different things!
Great stuff Meg!
