essence of summer

Good morning! I hope you enjoyed the weekend, and if you’re in the UK, I hope you managed to get out and take advantage of the amazing weather. After spring-cleaning our tiny bijou patio a few weeks ago, I was finally able to make the most of it with the help of this month’s Marie Claire and a couple of cold Coronas. It was a perfect relaxed weekend… the kind that is always hard to leave! On to this week’s fashion inspiration which is a combination of two colours that are the epitome of summer: coral and aqua. They conjure up images of tropical getaways and azure skies; even if you just want to dip into the colour scheme just a little, then opt for a coral or turquoise nail polish, or a statement piece of jewellery. How do you feel about this summery pairing?

    Sounds like you had nicer weather than we did up in Scotland this weekend. I love these colours together – especially the jewellery.
