This time of year is on of the most joyous. The sun is finally peeking through the grey clouds still lingering from winter, the leaves are emerging filling the parks with colour, the flowers are pushing through the soil, and there is sense of a new beginning, a fresh start, new life. With spring comes longer days, sunsets which fill the skies with a pinky hue, birdsong fills the air, and we just generally feel happy and more invigorated by our surroundings. Spring is the perfect time for al fresco lunches and lazy Sunday afternoon strolls, both of which I have been doing a lot of lately (blog post all bout said lunches and strolls is soon to follow).
Whilst being one of the most happy times of the year, spring is also one of the most photogenic. The flowers in full bloom provide the perfect backdrop to photos, and the increase in colour definitely makes for a much more colourful Instagram grid (not that I’m obsessed or anything). I have been into wearing orange as of late, as it is in-keeping with this new spring in the air (pardon the pun), and even just a slick of orange lipstick is enough to brighten up anyone’s day. I like to pair mine with a co-ordinating item of clothing, although you have to be careful not to go to overboard and risk looking like a piece of fruit. This outfit is my go-to look for a casual spring day – perfect for a stroll in the park, a spot of Sunday brunch, or a lazy evening spent in the pub garden.

This is how I like to style the colour orange for spring, its fun, casual and entirely effortless, just how I like it.
Thank you for reading, stay tuned for more that is yet to come from me.
