For as long as I can remember, i've loved this damn colour. It's like some feral, coral coloured animal takes over my body whenever I spot anything in this shade, screaming 'BUY IT. BUY IT NOW.' There's something about it's ability to translate into every single season, from the light and flouncy Spring to the cosy, picturesque Autumn, it works with everything. For me, it gives an outfit that girly edge without slapping on a typical pink or pastel. It would not be a stretch to say that about a good third of my wardrobe is coral, I just can't resist. 

My favourite way to indulge in this happy little colour would be my Tart Deco nail polish paired with my Ever Hip lipstick, a perfect duo for the sunday spring picnic! 

What is your favourite way to wear this magnificent colour?

  1. Can't say that I have in coral, but I think this summer will have to be the season that I do, especially since bright colours are on trend. Love the Miss Selfridge skirt!
