A summery orange outfit | link-up

The weather is really warming up here in the Algarve at the moment and so I was delighted to get out the orange floral trousers I bought from Zara last year. They’re a kind of linen cotton mix so they’re perfect for the heat. Unfortunately they’re a tad too long (I really ought to hem them but I just can’t be bothered lol) so I had to wear my platform trainers. But I actually quite liked them together. I bought this orange tee from Mango last year as well, and it’s a lovely silky cotton that hangs beautifully. They still have it available, just in orange. It’s available in black, white and blue. I’m tempted to get the blue one (it’s a similar colour to my nails here). I just wish I’d been wearing a matching bra because the flesh coloured strap kept showing!

If it had been cooler, I would have probably worn a dark blue cardigan but it was lovely and warm as it was. I chose to wear a turquoise necklace and a couple of rings (that I forgot to take photos of) that I inherited from my late MIL. Oh and I wore my neutral handbag from Parfois which I’ve been using all the time since I bought it a couple of weeks ago. All in all, I really liked the resulting orange outfit. It made me feel colourful and happy. Speaking of which, I just posted a video on my Think Like Queenie channel, about dopamine dressing (thanks Marsha, for giving me the idea!) that you might be interested in. I’ll post it here…

Now let’s get on with the Neverending Style link-up. What have you been up to this week?

    Love the colors!! And those platform sneakers are just perfect with those pants. I really like to pair turquoise and orange and I love how bright this shade of orange is. It is getting warm here so I really have to keep that in mind when I plan my outfits.

    Just adore these bright colors on you and those chunky sneaks! The color of your jewelry/nails is such a pretty contrast too.
