Colour, colour and more colour. And a parrot

As much as I like [read: love] buying new clothes, I always feel a massive sense of satisfaction when I create an outfit entirely out of items I’ve had for a long time. And when I unpacked my box of summer clothes a little while back, I was excited to rediscover my parrot vest top bought a couple of years ago… it couldn’t scream SUMMER more if it tried! I added to the tropical feel with my bright red bag and bright pink heels, because when I wore this outfit the weather was pretty warm – oh how I’m longing for that warmth now…!

I must say: turquoise, red and pink just has to be one of the happiest colour combinations ever, don’t you think??

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend :))

    Lovely, exciting outfit for warm weather. Must be warmer where you are! We're in the "not hot, not cold" range.

    You have a box of summer clothes? How fabulous. I have 3 suitcases full that I am now trying to stuff into my already over-stuffed wardrobe. Something's gotta give—unfortuantely, still love 'em all. But maybe some could go on a permanent vacation at the charity shop?

    Pieces like this parrot top are great treasures, always in, and wonderful.
    I am very much into animals in prints.
