Yellow and Turquoise Outfit

Yellow and turquoise (or aquamarine) are such a pretty summer colour combination don’t you think? I think i recently saw these colours together on Pintrest and thought they worked tremendously well together. They feel summery like the beach and the sea, they are two colours that were made for each other. The black added in wasn’t what i was originally going to go with, i was thinking more white or cream vest top and nude shoes, but after the blazer arrived and had black feature zips i thought i would bring it in with the vest top and down to the shoes.

Isn’t the skirt a beauty? This was Donna’s choice from F&F for #frockswapuk. When i first saw it doing its rounds with the girls i thought it was pretty but not something i would choose. Skirts and me are sometimes not friends. They can sit funny across my waist and add bulk where i do not need any (more) adding. 


The skirt is lovely, a great length and the waistline is simple (adding no bulk), it ran a little big on me so i may buy it (its on sale for £10!!) a size down and treasure it. 

What do you think, does it have remix potential ladies, should i add it to my rotation?

Blazer: Sheinside


Skirt: c/o F&F

Shoes & Vest: New Look

And here’s how the beautiful frockswapping ladies styled it…

    The skirt is lovely Rachel! And I think you made a good choice continuing the black that was already in the jacket. Super combination of colours, as always. P x

    Damn! Your choice of colours is just amazing! It's definitely not something I'd usually wear either, but I've really enjoyed seeing how we've all styled it. I'm tempted to buy it in the smaller size, that 12 is massive! Glad it wasn't just me! xx

    I really like the skirt and your styling of it. I think there is a lot of remix possibilities

    Damn, girl!! That skirt's a keeper. I honestly think you're the reigning Queen of Colour on the bloggesphere right now – NO ONE can put colours together like you, Rachel!

    I am always amazed at how you mix colors! I love this combo but never would have thought of it. I don't know what you're talking about with you and skirts not being friends. This looks great on you! The post featuring you will be up first this tomorrow!
