Pumpkin, Mushroom, Latte and Olive...

Good evening everyone!

First of all - WOW. I am stunned by the sheer volume of loveliness that you guys showed me for my previous post. I am so glad to feel I was understood, to have provoked conversation and to have found like-minded views out there!
So thank you to everyone who commented or emailed me, I really enjoyed reading your responses!

As some of you may know, I'm great lover of tonal colours! Brights are brilliant, pastels are pretty - but for me, it's all about the tonal shades!
In this case, Pumpkin, Mushroom, Latte and Olive... Quite the feast for one outfit!

The navy wool skirt was a recent vintage find from Beyond Retro. On an afternoon off I strolled in for a mooch and came away with two fantastic wool pieces (the second shall feature soon!) this skirt being one of them.
I instantly loved the quality of the garment, the great fit, and let's face it - I wear a lot of navy! Isn't it weird how some days, quite unexpectedly you have a great shopping experience?

My nude body suit is an old Topshop piece, seen here with my vintage iris necklace, which previously belonged to my Nanna.

My olive green felt hat hails from Absolute Vintage on Brick Lane, and my mushroom cardigan and strappy tan belt are both H&M finds - I'm obsessed with this belt lately!

And can we just talk for a moment about how gorgeous the colour of these Asos heels is? Deep pumpkin orange, they look good enough to eat! Worn here with 'latte' coloured tights from Primark (they had such a great selection this winter!)

And finally, I thought I'd get a bit ahead this year and have the first (or what I'm sure will be many!) Spring clear outs!
I have a huge selection of vintage, Topshop and other bits and pieces up on eBay right now, if you fancy having a look HERE.

Items up for sale include this Topshop Boat Print dress...

Another Topshop number,  this time in a pretty floral tea-dress...

A incredibly cute vintage 1950's party dress...

And a sweet vintage high-waisted polka dot skirt...

All items end on Wednesday 20th of February... Good luck bidding! 
(Overseas bidders are welcome, but please don't message me for a postage quote unless you win the item - all prices will be in accordance to Royal Mail pricing)

More soon - Have a great weekend everyone!
