Dressing it up

I had my colours done a few years ago and am a Clear Spring. It makes sense to me because I naturally gravitated towards some of those colours. Peach and orange in particular are two of my favourite shades. Last year saw a peach bonanza:  suddenly the colour was everywhere!  This year it's the same with orange.

The silk top above is by Dorothy Perkins and was bought purely because of the colour.  I don't normally bare my arms but I thought "what the heck, who's going to look at my arms anyway?" and went for it.  The skirt is a few years old, from Zara, and the wedges from M&S.

I used a few more accessories than usual.  A cute clutch bag, a big citrine ring and some large pearls.  Maybe this is the outfit for when my Mum and I go to see the Boston Ballet in London in July.


  1. Hooray for baring arms! You look wonderful and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  2. A great color on you, and your pearls are fab!

  3. I love peach, and this is a beautiful outfit - both elegant and bright. I really love the giant "pearls"!

  4. I think it's a great idea to get your "colours done", nice outfit which looks lovely on you xx

  5. That is a great color on you. Thank you for visiting pret-a-vivre.com :)

  6. Yes, bare arms. Yes to buying a lovely blouse just because you love the color! And especially yes to tucking it into a slim white skirt. I can't do that, but I'm happy you can!
