Mustard polkadots, lemon denim and tangerine patent













I'm definitely feeling the love for spring in this outfit with florals, polkadots and pastels - I don't think I could be more spring-like if I covered myself in magnolia flowers and daffodils. In between the grey, cloudy days we are having some gorgeous, sunny and slightly-warmer-than average weather, which just makes me want to reach for the florals every time...!

I'd not thought to team this thrifted floral shirt with my polkadot blazer before (even though I've had both since last summer), and as I'm a pattern-mixing fan I'm seriously loving this new combo. Plus this is my first foray into pastels; these boyfriend jeans were super cheap from ASOS, and while I was browsing the sale section I found these loafers too: Patent? Tangerine? On sale? Add to basket!

Wishing you all a very happy week, hope your weekends were great :)))

    1. Hi Dawn, yes Hannah Zakari is still in business, but as the post is over two years old I'm afraid they don't sell this necklace any more :-( xx
