What The Block!

Straw Boater Hat, H&M, Mustard Ruffle Sleeve Shirt, BCBG, Coral Mini Skirt, Topshop, Grey Wedges, HK Boutique, Sharks Egg Purse, Vintage
This look made it into Chictopia's Style Gallery! Yay! :)

 Amidst all the rain last week, Albert and I ditched the street, and just did some in house shoots! I'm not usually a fan, I'm too spoiled with the sun out here... but what can you do when it won't stop raining!!! I decided to go bright and bold with this outfit... It's so refreshing to be able to douse oneself in colour after all the muted tones of last year. Colour blocking used to really annoy me, I'm not exactly sure why, but I think if you can make it your own, and add some texture to your colour, then it's kinda fun! I think there is something about a lot of flat colours that disturbs me a bit... I felt the ruffles on this shirt, and the ridges of the skirt switch up the blocking a tad, so I can deal with it!!! I'm insanely excited for the weather to be just right for all-day-bare-legs, so I can get the little dresses, skirts and shorts out all full time, not just for shoots and semi days!
Suns out now... I'm so tired right now though, I'm ignoring it for today!!! Hope your all happy and lively :) xx

Gorgeous shots! I live in San Francisco and as much as I want to believe that the gloomy weather doesn't directly affect 99% of my closet, I use the rainy day excuse to justify all the black/grey/cozy layering pieces in it. You've inspired me to pop in some color for my trip to LA this week - it's pouring their, too but I'll have to make it fun ;)
