Brummie Series Day 2 - Colour Blocking

Because I'm TWP and because I can, I colour-blocked my face, BOOM!

Day 2 begins with everybodys favourite fashion inspiration this season, colour blocking. I'm not really a bright colour person, it will take a while to catch me in solid yellows or bright blues, I like prints and if I'm gonna wear solid colours its usually black and white. I recently started warming to the idea however after going to Zara to buy this deceptively gorgeous boat necked shift dress (loved it so much I got it in black and in red). Zara is slaying in the colour blocking department, I love every single thing they have. Maybe my love has shifted because H&M thoroughly disappointed me with their whole Giselle in peasant like farm garb clothing nonsense. Really though, y'all need to get on Zara online and start putting your debit cards to work, amazeballs.

A Zara display wall. Managed to take this photo sharply before I was tackled to the ground by overzealous salesgirls and security men. This wall was predominantly orange but the whole store was like an explosion in a poster colour factory. Achingly beautiful.

With a bright colour on top already, couldn't bring myself to wear another bright colour on the bottom. I'm tall, I'd look like a walking traffic signal. Had to tone down all the brightness with my favourite, all weather black.

This skirt is actually very long but because its tight all the way to the ground, it rides up as I walk in case any of you bad belles dared to think my skirt dey fear ground, better fall back.

My Poshbug werking it

Those tights are the absolute bi'ness. Love them!

The Hardware

My turquoise and coral owl earrings. Still trying gamely to stick to the whole colour thing

You'll probably have guessed by now that I really like jewellery and not just any jewellery, seriously weird-type jewellery.

Ignore the nails s'il vous plait, I'm in acrylic recovery.

Day 2 over, more tomorrow....

Love and light xxx
