Outfit Post: How To Wear Colour & Brighten Up A Rainy Day

Outfit Post Amsterdam

There is something so calming about wandering the streets and canals in Amsterdam, even in the rain we had on this day. I could have stepped out in my jeans and a jumper, but I decided to brighten up the morning with my amazing raindrop skirt from Lucy Teacup instead and when I saw a little old lady admiring my skirt on the ferry I knew I’d made a good choice! Here’s my tips on how to wear colour and brighten up a rainy day:

Papel Picado Mexican Bunting Necklace by Onetenzeroseven

I bought this skirt first at our Etsy Made Local fair at Christmas and everything else in the outfit was bought to match. I actually picked up these tights in M&S outlet for £1.75 and they match perfectly! When you’re looking for things to go with a certain piece of clothing you own, try taking the item with you when you go shopping or at least have a photo of it to hand.

These gorgeous clogs are also from Etsy and are by Lotta From Stockholm for a bargainous £56.50! I really struggled to find some shoes to go with this skirt, but I was determined not to wear it with black! I eventually picked out the pink raindrop to go with my pink hair too.

How to wear colour, colorful outfit ideas

The top was a last minute purchase the day before we went away to Amsterdam – I have a blue top that matches the skirt and tights, but I wanted something more colourful and less matchy. This top is from Wallis, where I wouldn’t normally shop, but the fit is lovely and it was only £16.

It was pure coincidence that the Papel Picado necklace from my new collection picks out most of the colours in this gorgeous skirt, but I love that it reintroduces the colours a little further up to balance the entire outfit and is a perfect example of how to wear colour. Jewellery, scarves and accessories are a great way to pick out colours in your outfit. I added a denim shirt as a cover up too.

Outfit Post: Cactus Love in Taormina, Sicily

Denim Shirt Outfit Ideas

Oh my heart, we finally got to see some of Sicily for my 30th birthday and it was beyond epic. Stu booked me a surprise trip for my birthday and I have no idea how he did it all and managed to keep it a secret until the afternoon of my birthday… not to mention how insanely well he knows me, I’ve wanted to go to Sicily for so many years and it did not fail to live up to the amazing picture I had painted of it in my mind!

We stayed in Catania and heading out along the coast one day to explore Taormina, a breathtaking cliff top town. It rained all morning while we were travelling, but as we started to make our way through the amazing village on foot the rain started to dry up and it turned into a gorgeous day, even if my feet were a little soggy!

As well as being stunningly beautiful, the mountainside of Taormina was covered with cacti, the perfect setting for some cactus love and to try out the new sample of my brand new Cactus Marquee necklace! These will be available in my Etsy shop really, really soon along with some other brand new designs.

This lovely worn and weathered staircase, wrapped in greenery was hidden away at the bottom of a whole bunch of steps down from the main town and had the more incredible view of crisp, turquoise blue and fresh, lush green. I could have stared off over there forever. I’d love to design a piece for my garden, when the summer comes, that reminds me of this spot. I’ll definitely share it with you guys too!
