I'm All Over Coral
I really, really loved this monochromatic outfit - simple as that...! I wore this to a surprise birthday party where I had no idea what sort of venue we were going to or what the dress code was... I read somewhere that if unsure, you should ALWAYS overdress rather than under dress - every time. Whoever said that was right, thank you :)
To have an evening in the UK where it is warm enough to go out wearing just one light layer on your top half is nothing short of a treat; no trying to decide what jacket or cardigan to put on over the top. Although I try to resist overkill on the pink front as much as possible (people I know seem to think I want pink everything for some reason), I think coral shades are a preferable alternative. I'd not thought of pairing this cutaway top (bought last summer) with this skirt (bought last winter) before - not until August's Everybody Everywhere theme was monochromatic. Blue would have been too easy, green not bright enough and white a cop out (for me I mean). So I thought pink? purple? red? - but in the end coral was number one choice. It's such a perfect colour for the summer, don't you think...?
