When Life Gives You Lemon

"Yellow, Cadmium, Aureolin, Lemon
It's the shades of your true nature"
~ Unknown

Yellow is one of those colours you either love or hate. I love this bright, cheerful, uplifting shade. It featured strongly in Emma Manley's SS15 collection, and this gorgeous jacket was my very first purchase that season.

Stunning 'Sian' is the perfect Springtime cover-up. An embellished perforated leather jacket, it features appliquéd hand-cut leather circles in matching leather and contrasting metallic leather at the base of the jacket and the short sleeves. Each embellishment is secured with metal conical studs, and the hem is cut with a decorative scalloped edge.

The jacket looks fantastic paired with pretty Summer dresses, floaty skirts, skinny jeans, and even with glamorous cocktail dresses, but on a glorious Spring day I styled my sunshiny jacket with a classic white tee, a very old, much loved pair of denim shorts, and comfy suede ankle boots, for a cool, laid-back look.

Sink The Pink

"Sink the pink, it's all the fashion
Drink the drink, it's old fashioned
Gimme water, gimme wine
Gonna show you, a good time
Sink the pink, sink the pink"

You've seen this gorgeous top on the blog before, but in a different colour (here). The leather Manley tee is a simple design that is effortlessly cool; it is a timeless classic that can be dressed up, down, or any way in between.

My favourite way to wear my Manley tees, is paired with skinny jeans and a great pair of heels. This look works a treat when I meet friends for drinks, it looks cool when I eat in a fancy restaurant, and best of all, it can be worn at any time of the year!

And check out my new bag! This cognac coloured beauty is by handbag and jewellery designer extraordinaire Nadia Minkoff. Made of fine, grainy Italian leather, with raw suede interior, 'The Richmond' tote really is the ultimate arm candy. The bag fastens securely at the top with a magnet tab, and has a full size, fully detachable interior zipped pouch. It has cute handmade leather tassels that I can't stop playing with, and features internal open and zipped compartments to secure all your essentials.

I love the how the cognac colour of the bag looks against the dramatic pink of my top; a classic, nude pair of Christian Louboutin shoes finish this super cool look off perfectly.
