block party







Jacket - H&M
Vest top - Topshop
Skirt - Never Fully Dressed
Belt - charity shop
Earrings - River Island


I am sure you do not need me to inform you that colour blocking is one of SS11 key trends this season, whether it is showcased in your outfit, accessories or makeup. Catwalks were awash with the bright and the bold, bravely clashing and displaying all the colours of the rainbow. Whether it be the bright pastels or the vibrant tropical shades, I believe everyone can embrace colour blocking and add a splash of colour to their wardrobe. As a girl who never shies away from sporting something colourful, I am delighted to see so much vibrancy on the highstreet, and this outfit would probably have been something I would have worn anyway, with or without Vogue's approval.


I purchased my jacket last year now, in September to be precise, but I have noticed that my H&M, at least, still has a few dregs left so you may be in luck. I wear this item an awful lot, I just find it really flattering and I love the shoulder pads and the graduated front panels. My skirt was a birthday purchase from Spitalfields Market. I first became aware of Never Fully Dressed at London Fashion Weekend last September where I was drawn to their pretty pieces with such feminine, floaty fabrics and beautiful bejewelled cuffs, so I was more than elated when I came across their stall last week whilst at the market. A long pleated skirt has been a wardrobe want of mine for some time now, so this is just perfect. It ends mid-calf, and with it I wore some black suede, high-heel ankle boots.


This was my outfit from Friday night where I enjoyed some equally colourful cocktails with my work friends, as I final birthday fling!
Will you be colour blocking this season?

Love the colour blocking... I like your outfit.
But colour blocking isn't something I'd personally do since I don't usually buy bright coloured clothes.

You do colour blocking so well! I think you have t be pretty brave to try it, especially because a lot of people that aren't involved in fashion, just won't get it. But who cares, you look greats and your skirt is amazing!
