OOTD: Colour Blocking

I don't usually do bright coloured clothing but I was immeadiately drawn to this dress when I saw it in H&M whilst shopping for my recent holiday. I didn't manage to wear it on holiday but I wore it to dinner last weekend after much deliberation of what colour footwear & bag to wear as I didn't want to clash with what is already a loud dress. 

Dress - H&M, Clutch - Bought from a market in Nigeria, Wedges - Office, Watch - Gc

Worn with a Zara Blazer

(P.S. I still haven't learnt how to use my camera properly as you can tell from the pics...)


  1. Love it, the dress is so cute! ..loving the clutch as well.

  2. Very Cute!!! Love that dress and the colors!!!!

  6. You need to do bright colour clothing more often. It suits you perfect!! Love this colour ensemble on you thou..

  8. love it , so cute !!!

    my freind wanted the same dress but its sold out :/ ahh well xoxo

  9. Thanks for your lovely comments guys, I can't wait to wear this dress again lol

    @Sophie - Im sure it looks lovely on you too.

    @OnYxStA - Thank you. You should get some authentic Naija buys on your next visit, they even sell stuff like the clutch and more at Lagos Airport (but it's waaay over priced there)

    @Maphi - When I went back the next day after buying it, it was sold out but I did see the playsuit version on the Sale section of the H&M website over the weekend (I'm not sure if its still there)

  10. Well, you should wear colors more often because that dress looks gorg on you! I love how you paired it with neutral colors. Simply Gorgeous.


  11. The dress looks great on you - you should definitly wear bright colours like that more often as they go great with your skin tone.

    You are very pretty by the way! I am sure you are model material - Naomi Campbell eat your heart out!!

    I wish you lots of luck with your beautiful blog.

    All the best,

  12. Hi pretty girl,
