I've always been more suited towards neutral shades such as nude and beige but lately I've been really attracted to bright colours for the upcoming new season. I recently bought these fuchsia boots which I tried to get hold of during the Zara Christmas sale but they all sold out. I purchased them via a seller on eBay and paid slightly more for them than I would have liked but they were worth the extra pennies. I'm not sure I would wear these to work as the heel is quite high but they're great for an evening out.

I wanted to make the boots pop out from my outfit so paired them with this oversized mesh stripe top which I bought during the week. My new internship at Styloko is literally 5 minutes away from Oxford Circus which is burning a hole in my bank card! I love anything featuring panels of mesh fabric at the moment and I know I will get a lot of wear out of this. The oversized fit makes it extra comfortable and easy to wear and it is sensibly priced at £20.

I'm extremely excited about a special little trip I am going on soon which I can't mention as it's a surprise for a certain somebody! I shall reveal all nearer the time when the cat has been let out of the bag. I decided to buy this gorgeous jewelled necklace to take away with me. I was immediately drawn towards the colourful gems and I think it looks great against a black top/ dress. It really compliments the fuchsia shade of the boots and ties the whole outfit together. The necklace is definitely a keeper for the Summer holidays too. I can imagine it looking perfect with a black sheer cover-up on the beach, hurry up Summer!
