Shades of White With a Chambray Shirt and Coral Brogues

All white with chambray shirt, coral brogues #spring #style

It’s always nice to come up with an outfit from existing things in your wardrobe, especially some that you’ve had for quite a while.

Nothing is new here, and the oldest pieces are either my chambray shirt or my all-time favourite brogues, the neon coral pair – I know for a fact that they are older than the blog itself (they came on holiday with me to San Francisco in 2011 and I set up the blog soon after I got back: here’s my first post)!

The brogues add the perfect dash of bright colour to an otherwise neutral (but very spring-like) outfit of all white and light wash denim. Although I wear them a lot, the last time they appeared on the blog was two years ago, but I think the white and silver brogues have become their nearest rival in recent months. Both are insanely comfortable and more interesting than your average brogue.

Which of these two brogues – white/silver or coral – gets your vote? Let me know in the comments…!

      I agree, Alice – probably why I have so many pairs…!! Thanks hun x

    You cannot say that one pair of brogues is better than the other. You just use them with different outfits.

      No, but a little vote always gets people thinking…!! x

    I love this whole look, the coral brogues are fabulous! I've been a slow convert to brogues but lately am really wanting a pair – they seem to go with everything! Love the chunky jewelry too 🙂 xo

      Thank you Steff – though be careful, you may end up like me (about 13 pairs and counting)…!!

    Love the coral brogues , the gold jewelry with the neutral look is so complimentary too! I finally bought a chambray shirt and it is great to see how everyone styles it. Lovely!

    Thank you for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!

      That'll be interesting to see you in the chambray shirt, Jess – quite different from your usual style! Thank you my lovely x

    This is like asking a mother to choose one child over the other! Both pairs are fantastic. I love all things shiny, and I love colour. The orange is a contrasting colour to the orange, adding interest to your outfit that the white & silver wouldn't do. Those are on the other hand very eye-catching on their own, adding glamour to any outfit! Why choose when you have them both? Isn't this what you Brits call "having your cake and eat it"? Or the best of both worlds, shine and colour!

      Hehe I'm so sorry Tine to make you choose – I didn't mean to make it Sophie's Choice!! And yes, I like to have my cake and eat it…! Thank you hun x

      Thanks Gareth – you know when it's nearly summer because all the bloggers are getting their arm parties out…!!!!

      You're very welcome. Ha! Precisely. You don't even need to look at the calendar! x

    Definitely the White & Silver pair. I'm very much a magpie.

    • 19 May 2015 / 2:41 pm

      I know that feeling, Sheela – I'm thinking I'm perhaps a magpie with eclectic (or fickle) tastes ;))

      Thanks Jodie – I couldn't believe they hadn't appeared on the blog in so long, I was really surprised as I wear them so much! x
