How are you all doing? These are strange and worrying times, and being exposed to so much news has made it hard for me to focus on anything. Is it the same for you? I have to force myself to switch off the TV and avoid social media at certain points during the day; that’s not easy when you’re a blogger/influencer. But those problems are nothing compared to what people on the other side of Europe are having to endure. It feels wrong to not acknowledge that, but at the same time I don’t want to bring more doom and gloom. All we can do is spread love and positivity, and be grateful for what we have.

I was certainly grateful for spending half term at my mum’s…despite it being freezing cold there due to no central heating! It’s not that it doesn’t work – the house has never had it. I slept in pyjamas, a long jumper, dressing gown and two pairs of socks! By the end of the week the temperature had picked up a bit…enough to motivate me to do an outfit shoot. Isobel kindly stepped in as my photographer.

For what I think is a first for me, I’ve combined orange and leopard print…how have I missed this dream pairing for so long?

The last time I did outfit photos at my mum’s I wore this burnt orange coat. Although I’m tempted to take it home with me, I leave it at mum’s; that way I have a colourful coat at my disposal when I return. I’ve been wearing these orange split hem trousers a lot lately. I bought them from Zara last year in the end of summer sale. I also ordered them in pink, but they were a size medium and were too big. (Zara’s sizing is a bit hit and miss). These are a small and fit perfectly.

For last month’s Style Not Age post I teamed orange with tiger print. For what I think is a first for me, I’ve combined orange and leopard print…how have I missed this dream pairing for so long? (I have worn an orange leopard print top before, but not a true “neutral leopard” with orange.) To make up for lost time I piled on more orange with my trainers, jewellery and furry bag. I got a few stares when I wore this outfit to the shops, but maybe that’s because the people of Peterborough are not used to seeing such colourful ensembles in Tesco!

My hair has faded just enough to match my hat almost perfectly! I love it when it’s freshly dyed and really bright red, but it fades so quickly. If anyone has any tips to keep the colour for longer please let me know! For a final touch to the outfit I added this fabulous gold necklace that I found in a charity shop. It’s a real statement piece and was a bargain at only £2!

The #stylewithasmile hashtag is up and running on Instagram – thank you to those who joined in. I’ll do a round up every week, so let’s keep it going!

    OMG I LOVE this, Emma! I did chuckle about your comment on visiting Tesco’s in Peterborough lol.
    You look fabulous—the orange with the animal print is perfection. Speaking of perfection…that NECKLACE! It’s AMAZING!!!!
    Big hugs

      Thanks so much Suzy! Haha, if you ever go to Peterborough (I’m not sure why anyone would tbh, unless you have to!) you’d see what I mean. Everyone wears dull colours and looks miserable!

  10. Di says:

    Love the bright and cheerful outfit you have styled today! During this difficult time, it is good to see a spark of light. The orange is fantastic on you, and I love your bold op shop statement necklace, what a fun find! Thanks for the link up and hope you have a good week.

  11. Nancy says:

    That coat is amazing with the trousers! Such a good combination. I switch off the telly also when it’s to much, it’s so horrible and dis honest. And all that fake news, really hate that. Let’s just hope it will all be over soon.

    • Emma Peach says:

      Thanks Nancy. Yes it all gets too much sometimes. Pete loves to watch A Place in the Sun and dream of moving abroad, it’s his escapism. Right now I’d seriously consider it!

  12. Well, that is wild! I thought for sure you had paired orange with leopard. It is a fantastic combination on you! I love all the orange and the hat is a great addition. Love the split hem and have a pair of jeans like that. Ive never tried Zara’s trousers but they look great on you, they have great sales but things go so fast.
