Today I'm Wearing

Even though every pore of my being was willing me to wear black today (thank you, weather), I rebelled against my inclination and did the complete opposite and went all out in the colour department! The silk shirt is from Alice + Olivia and it came in a hot pink as well (purple looked much better on me, otherwise I would have picked it up too).

The shirt is supposed to be worn untucked as it's very short in the front, but I tucked it in anyway as I think it gives a much better silhouette. I'm wearing navy blue jeans today, rather than my usual black because I think black would be too harsh against the bright colours of the shirt and bag. I also softened it up by wearing the same Tods loafers from the last post.

Alice + Olivia have some amazing items- not my usual go-to brand, but now and again I do come across some nice finds- and this season in particular I think is quite stunning! I picked this shirt up over two months and last week I went to take a look at their collection again and they have almost the same shirt in the same colour with the exception of a couple minor design changes. The collection has some lovely silk pieces and bright tops!

Useful Tip:

When wearing bright colours, keep the silhouette and accessories simple! Especially when there's more than one bright colour!
