There are some colour combinations that have become firm favourites of mine; green and pink is definitely one of them. You may remember that for April’s Style Not Age outfit I wore a blush pink sweater and lime green trousers. Other recent green and pink combinations include my dark green cords and pink coat, and the lime trousers with an oversized pink blouse. I’m sure if I dig deeper into the archives I’ll find more examples! I love the deep emerald green shade of these trousers and the gold decorative buttons. However, they are not at all forgiving on the tummy, so definitely not for bloaty days, if you know what I mean!
The top is from Saturday by Megan Ellaby, a label that has gained popularity with Instagrammers since it launched in 2018. (Megan is a Mancunian blogger who loves colour and print…I can totally relate!) The fabric quality is really good with a decent amount of stretch. It’s not one of those thin slinky tops (of which I have many), but a more form-fitting style that doesn’t wrinkle. For that reason, it’s best suited for slightly cooler days. These photos were taken before the weather picked up so I wasn’t too hot. Teaming green and pink animal print adds a twist to this colour combination with the smattering of red, which I’ve picked up on with my jewellery. Layering the relaxed fit trench coat over it meant I didn’t feel too trussed up, which I might have done with a jacket.
For a fun touch I chose my glittery watermelon bag from Skinny Dip rather than a conventional handbag. It’s not very practical but I do love a quirky bag! The white square toe boots add that retro vibe that I’m really into right now. I was slow to get on board with white footwear but now I’m loving it!
