Black T-shirt with a Lilac Midi and Gold Bling | Yosa Giveaway

Over 40 Fashion: Black tee with lilac skirt and gold accessories
How's this for a gorgeous bit of bling on a Wednesday? This stunning gold necklace and sequinned clutch are both from Yosa - I've collaborated with my BBFF* Rachel the Hat to offer not just one but TWO lucky winners an item of their choice from her new jewellery and accessories store! If you know Rachel at all you'll know that she has impeccable taste so the jewellery and accessories on Yosa are nothing short of spectacular.

This fabulous necklace did wonders to transform a basic black t-shirt into something date night-worthy, and with the addition of the sequinned clutch it would be perfect for transforming a work outfit for an evening out. I've discovered that black and lilac with gold accessories look stunning - though if you wanted a more colourful piece there are loads to choose from on Yosa (see my selections below).

If you can't wait, however, Yosa are currently offering free UK delivery with code FREEUKSHIP and half price international shipping with code INTSHIPOFFER - and not only that but you'll receive a free gift with every order. The giveaway is open internationally and entry is easy via the widget at the end of the post. What are you waiting for - get entering!

The Best of My Summer Outfits (My Edit)

My best summer outfits
Here's my favourite outfits from the summer (June to August) - there may be some you missed. My favourite of the favourites is almost impossible to call - summer is my favourite season for dressing so there were too many I absolutely adored.

The Double Pearl Choker with Lace, Coral and Lilac

Lace sleeved top and lilac jeans
I'm absolutely in love with this combination of coral and lilac - with the warm copper of my hair and the tan bag it makes for the prettiest late summer outfit. I'm still crushing on my white pointed flats I last wore here, and the double pearl choker is perfect for this top to add a little bit of subtle glamour. We're definitely in summer to autumn transitional dressing time so these lace sleeves were fine during the day... I got a little chilly as the sun went down however!

What colour combinations are you wearing right now - is the new season starting to affect your choices yet? Do share in the comments!
