After seeing this pink & orange outfit on Ruby Slipper Journeys it didn't take me long to decide what colour tights to wear with my tangerine dress. Add a scarf and I felt so summery I almost forgot about my frizzy hair (Luckily catching and sticking my tongue out at my reflection in the elevator mirror reminded me to book a trim).

You can see a more wintery remix of this dress in front of the same graffiti here

In fingernail news: I finally succeeded at the sellotape trick thanks to Kaylah's tutorial. My fatal error had been to use masking- rather than clear tape. Although, frankly, my impatience waiting for the first coat to dry may also have played a role in previous keratin based disasters. My first go wouldn't stand up to close-ups (especially not my right hand, the left is so much easier for a clumsy righty like me) but I am definitely getting the hang of this :)

Any of you guys wanna swap me some summer for lukewarm drizzle?
Rain or shine, have a memorable weekend you all!

scarf: present (pass me down)

  1. You are so bright and beautiful! The graffiti background is perfect for this outfit!

  2. I really love your unexpected color combination! And the nails are a total win. Hope the weather warms up for you.

    I'd say those are the best possible tights you could wear with that dress! :)

    Oh, goodness, I love this.  Absolutely brilliant color combination!

  5. Aahh yess! I love that yellow/orange, and pastel pink and purple SO MUCH. Colour inspiration for sure :D
