If there is one look I love lots and lots, it's the preppy look as I just can't help but adorn collars, brogues and jumpers like there's no tomorrow whilst thinking 'Caroline Flack eat your heart out' to myself (Surely I can't be the only girl that does this...). Which is probably why I decided to give my usual school girl chic thing a bit of a bright colour pop Spring update last week as I did in this outfit last year...we'll ignore the fact there is very wintry snow outside right now.

This was a look I wore out to dinner a few weeks back. I only had about 20 minutes to get ready as it was a last minute plan and I was in fact all prepared for a night in wearing my pyjamas and watching youtube videos. But did I panic when this dinner date was sprung upon me and my hair looked like a birds nest? Alas, no I did not, instead I tried to make the birds nest thing work for me and went for 'cute preppy girl that just skipped out of school randomly wearing a coral coloured top and matching lipstick' look. Such a classic well known look... This was a top I bought in my House of Fraser haul back in January but until recently had remained unloved and unworn at the back of my wardrobe in favour of my wintry burgundy colours. However, neon coral is totally having its moment now March is upon us (again, please ignore any possible snow starring at you from outside the window here, it will ruin the illusion of Spring I am creating), first with my new favourite lip colour 'stellar' and now with this pretty collared blouse which you may have seen lurking around your local Topshop in various colours. As the blouse is fairly loose fitting I decided to pair it with my housemate's skater skirt nipped in with my trusty new look belt, then added my rather battered bargain brogues to tie in the tan colour and also to add to the schooly feel. Finally, I finished off the look with a messy high pony tail which reminds me of how I liked to wear my hair at Primary school and had forgotten about until really recently but currently can't stop wearing!
What looks and colours are you loving now Spring is Springing?
There's not much to say about my weekend so far as it's been a pretty chilled one dotted with various rehearsals, my housemate Nick has gone to New York this week though so me and Rosie had a very girly time last night sorting out my ridiculous make up collection. I decided I only want to keep the things I really love and use all the time so there will be a big old blog sale coming soon! I'm sad that I can't be with my mummy today though but I hope you all had lovely mother's days if you could be at home :)
Have a lovely night ladies, I hope you'll be joining me in my enthusiasm for the 'Dancing on Ice' final!
