I love the colour orange (and any form of it – coral, peach, etc.) and I love a well-placed, meaningful ruffle. So what could make me happier than the two combined!

Today’s outfit started around this beautiful ruffled front coral-orange tank. I found this in my favourite consignment shop about a month ago and although a bit pricier for consignment, I had to have it. It is the most luxurious silk-blend fabric that feels amazing against the skin. I’ve paired it with my espresso Esprit trousers and then added my newly thrifted snakeskin belt for added texture. To work with the lighter taupe in the snakeskin, I’ve topped the tank with my gold linen blend blazer. I’ve popped on my Docs Danielle calfskin animal print shoes for more texture and colour. The Docs do take these pants dangerously close out of PPL but I think it’s still ok – BTW I’m holding up the pant leg in the second pic so you can see the Docs. For a bit more orange (‘cause you can never have too much orange!) I’m wearing my orange leather handbag.

So does this combination of colours, textures and shapes work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
