Something colourful for summer

As the weather warms up, it's always nice to add a splash of colour to a tired wardrobe. This year it seems that colour-block is all the rage, but I'm not sure that it's a good look for me. So, while wandering around the shops I picked up a few items that I hope will brighten up other outfits.

This top is really light and breezy with sweet ruffles around the neck. It's a fresh green colour which looks great with the black tailored shorts.

This flowery hot-pink dress is fab for warmer weather and will look good with either flats or wedges. I found all of these items in Zara, so it didn't cost me a fortune (always a bonus!).

Do you like the new colour-block fashion for this summer?

Hasta pronto!
