I just can't get enough of the old pink at the moment, can I! I featured this cropped blouse on my recent 'Lusting After' post and managed to find it amongst the Last Chance to Buy section in Topshop. Luckily, it was in my size but I'm pretty sure I could wear this in many sizes as it's meant to look oversized. I love the bright coral colour, this is one of my all time favourite shades and it looks so lovely against nude and rose gold jewellery. I wore this with my new black Joni jeans which I purchased over the weekend after much umming and ahhing. I'm really glad I bought them now because they are incredibly comfortable and really suck you in around the waist. I've bought a fair few cropped jumpers and tops lately so plan to wear them with the Joni jeans too.

I bought these & Other Stories cream leather and perspex brogues about a month ago and only gave them one outing as they really rubbed. I didn't think they would look right with socks and leggings/ jeans for some reason. I was waiting for Summer to come so I could wear them with a little dress and frilly socks. However, I tried them on with these patterned socks today and actually thought they looked quite cute. I love how you can see the pattern through the perspex areas and they made me feel very Spring-like. Unfortunately, it rained pretty much all day so they are in need of a good scrub now!

There's been a lot of hype around white nails this season so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and give them a go. I bought MUA's 'All Nude' polish for £1 in their sale last weekend but I'm not sure if prices are still reduced. The colour is what I call a 'dirty white', it isn't crisp white and looks a tiny bit grey. I love the colour, it's really up my street as neutral shades are my favourite and they are definitely appropriate for the upcoming season. However, the application wasn't so easy. I found streaks easily appeared when applying the polish and it took a fair few coats and a good top coat to get a solid colour. Oh well, I can't complain for £1!
