Lets hear it for coral!

The sun is shining and *sings* I’m feeling gooood!!! One of the best things for me as the weather warms up is the opportunity to wear more colour.  I love bright colours and always feel confident and happy wearing them.    

Todays outfit is all about the colour coral.  Coral is a great colour to wear for Spring and Summer as it is bright but not over-powering, is super cute and feminine and is flattering to most skin tones.  And here I am wearing a shirt, jumper & skirt combo embracing the hue.

I love a full skirt and this one with pockets from my favourite haunt Primark, is just perfect – and it’s so flattering.  You put it on and feel like you should be in an episode of Mad Men, all cinched waist and shwoosy hemline.  Plus it only cost me Β£5.00 in the sale! coral preppy spring primark & per una look 2 via Always a Blue Sky Girl blog

I love to use a white shirt as a layering piece and think it adds a great preppy edge to what could be a ‘too pretty’ outfit.  Make-up wise I wore the coral lipstick I got recently from Poundlands Make-Up Gallery (blogged here). I’m definitely loving their bright lipstick colours and its adds that extra pop of colour!coral preppy spring primark & per una look 5 via Always a Blue Sky Girl blog

And finally, gold pointed flats from Matalan complete the look.   Metallics are perfect with bright colour as wearing a dark shoe just looks odd.  I’m not one for high heels so a pretty, pointed flat gives me a feminine look without the discomfort (pain is not good when you’ve got a school run to do!)coral preppy spring Matalan gold shoes look 6 via Always a Blue Sky Girl blog

This is one of my favourite outfits I’ve styled so far this year and it got a lot of great feedback via Instagram (follow my feed here). So, what do you think about coral – hot or not?    You know where I stand.
