In the Navy – May 2016

One of my favourite colours for this autumn/winter season is navy. I love wearing this deeper, darker shade of blue in the cooler months because it is a softer alternative to black, which means it's not as dramatic yet still makes an impact. It also means I won't get lost in the sea of black that descends over the city in winter (lol). There is something so sophisticated and flattering about navy. For me, it exudes a sense of confidence and authority - that's why the police and military dress in this colour!

I already own this stylish skirt in tanso when it was released in navy I immediately snapped it up. The skirt is a high-waited, midi-style and has the best shape to it; fits perfectly to your body and creates the sexiest silhouette. Plus, it's so comfortable on.

Here I have paired it with my snake print shirt and snake print pumps for a slightly edgy look but, it is such a versatile colour it will look great with so many colours. I especially love it with nude or beige, white, cream any and all shades of pink from blush to fuchsia and I cant wait to wear it with baby blue. So many possibilities!

I hope everyone has a fab weekend. It's the last one for autumn.
