You guys know I’m a mustard lover, ditto with tartan as well, so it was downright predictable that I fell in love with the Tiffany-Lee skirt when Miss Candyfloss launched their lookbook a while back. As much as I’m happy to collect tartan and plaids in all manner of colours, it’s not often you find one that’s truly unique. The bold colour combinations and large size of this tartan print means it’s the most unusual one I’ve seen in a while, which is delightful.
I’ve spoken before on the blog about wanting to challenge myself more often with styling statement shoes, so I’m pleased I’ve been given the chance again to do just that.

I decided upon the Nora-Lee dress.
I’ve been massively into blues lately, of almost all shades, but especially soft shades like periwinkle and cornflower blue, so this dress immediately drew me in. Once you add in the fact that it has punctuations of red, my favourite accessorising colour, I was sold.
