Finally I've gone bold and added a touch of fearful red into my wardrobe or a touch of Wheres Wally, depending g on how you look at it. I wore this outfit yesterday to run some errands around town as its super comfortable and perfectly suited to this on and off Summer/Autumn weather we're having at the minute.

I don't actually own any red in my wardrobe and id usually stay well away from mixing with red stripes. (You know the whole body conscious widening effect its said to have) However it actually works at balancing out my figure and adds a bit more texture to the outfit in total. The arms of the jumper are actually full sleeve but i always tend to roll anything full sleeve up, mainly for comfort reasons but i also think the red top may look a little too much if the sleeves where pulled all the way down.

As for the jewellery, I picked up the gold bunting necklace from Dorothy Perkins last week, Ive seen quiet a few of these spiked triangle necklaces however this is by far my favorite as the gold has a slight rosy tint and the chain isn't too chunky. Full colored rose jewellery seems to be filtering out at the moment, the pinkness of it suits all types of skin tones as well as being that little bit different so I'll be looking to grab a few pieces over the next month!

  7. I am in LOVE with your style! I adore the stripy shirt you're wearing (very Parisienne!) and I especially love it when bloggers buy something from say a charity store, or Primakr, and pull it off in such a lovely way that it doesn't matter where it's from! That is true talent and takes true skill. You are one of the wonderful bloggers who does just that! I am in awe of your style, your write ups, and just generally everything to do with your blog! I look forward to reading your future posts, I'm definitely a new follower and a new fan! Thank you :)
