Cream and Red Play in the Park

 A sunny albeit windy Spring morning was the perfect opportunity to break out a lighter outfit for a visit to the City Park , which is looking quite a picture with all the Spring blooms.

 After my darker colours of Winter it was fun to don my old favourite cream and pair it with red. The asymetrical red spot and cream top by Alembika is a new seasons purchase and I know when our weather finally warms up will have many outings.

 The top is paired with drop crotch pants by Western Australian designer Megan Salmon and a jacket from Ted Baker , an old favourite of mine. I love a jacket and have amassed quite a collection over time, with our unpredictable weather they always come in handy.

 A taupe bag , cream tassel brogues , red circle earrings, Chanel sunnies in taupe and black and a bangle stack in cream and red complete todays outfit.

    We don't often see you in pale colours but they really suit you! This softly tailored outfit looks perfect for Spring. How lovely to see the flower display in your local park too!

      Thank you Claire , it is a pleasant change to wear paler colours. Unfortunately the Spring sunshine was fleeting and followed by rain in the afternoon but its good for the flowers.

    I love seeing you in lighter colours! Not least because I'm a bit sad to see summer over in the Northern hemisphere and I'm a bit envious…And cream and red, such a great colour combo for you, and all the details that are just so perfect.

    This red and cream combination works so well with your colouring Jill. I thought the jacket and trousers were a suit, but see that the drop crotch trousers are a different colour – they look fabulous too. My final note of envy has to be about those tassel brogues, ahhh, how lovely!Anna x

    Thank you so much Anna , I must admit to being pleased with the combination of colours. After the darker colours of Winter it is good to wear lighter tones. I know we both share a love of brogues.
