I think this is the first ever item of yellow clothing I've bought, but I just couldn't resist. Usually I avoid yellow as it doesn't look great with my skin, but this has a slight hint of chartreuse which helps to tone it down. I tried on several blouses in Topshop but this was definitely my favourite - the dipped hem is hip flattering and the ruffles add a seventies vibe without too much flounce. It's also not as hideously sheer as some of Topshop's other offerings - always a bonus!
I'm a big fan of all of the rusty colours hitting the high street this season, and this tunic (or dress if you're feeling brave!) is my way of giving a nod to that. The lace hem, gathered waist and slightly sheer sleeves all add up to create a flattering shape, and this can definitely be dressed up with 100 deniers and chunky heels or dressed down with leggings and sandals...when the weather starts to heat up!
|H&M Sweater (yes I think it may just need an iron!)|
This sweater isn't particularly spring like, but it was a must, especially considering how much it is 'inspired' by a Whistles knit that I couldn't justify splashing out on. As well as Topshop, H&M have some lovely stuff in store this season - I'd especially recommend checking out the flagship Regent Street store if you're in the vicinity. Lots of pastels, florals and sixties inspired separates and dresses - if only half of them fitted my pear shape figure!
