Neon Harmony*

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all enjoying the Bank Holiday! We've been blessed with a couple of hours of sunshine so of course I have had to dig out some of my perennial summer favourites - I always seem to sway towards pinks, corals and oranges this time of year as they just brighten up my mood and help me shake off the last few cobwebs left over from winter - the brighter the better!

It seems to have crept up on me but I recently noticed exactly how many bright pieces form part of my everyday look now that cold weather is well and truly behind us. The newest addition to my accessories is this fabulous Kate Spade phonecase I was sent last week - orange and pink is always a winning combination in my opinion and the stripy pattern makes it oh-so-fashionable. I whipped it out at lunch the other day and my colleagues immediately exclaimed how very me it is - a testament to my newfound adoration for colour if ever there was one! It has made finding my phone in the depths of my handbag so much easier and I really love the colours, it definitely has become a summer staple. I particularly like matching my lipstick to it - MAC's Impassioned is the perfect neon pink accompaniment, and I've also been delving into my vast collection of Revlon lip colours as they're so easy to swipe on when I'm on the go!

Next are my much coveted and adored statement necklaces - I keep spotting more and more on the high street that I absolutely need to add to my collection but for now I am content to wear these lovely Fiorelli pieces. I find they go with so many outfits and just brighten up a simple tee and jeans so nicely, they also attract a lot of compliments so I am not the only one who loves them!

I know I've featured this on the blog before but I am just so in love with this light neon H&M cardigan - it is so bright but looks great thrown over a black dress or with grey skinnies. It definitely stands out from the crowd and I adore the colour, I have decided I need more items like this! You can just about make it out in today's photos.

Finally to satisfy my need for matchy-matchiness (shush, it is totally a word) I like to paint my nails in a bright coral such as this one by Models Own - a staple colour for spring and summer - or this eye catching bright pink by Barry M, which, incidentally, perfectly complements the phone case!

I must have changed my phone case at least 15 times since the iPhone came into my possession; I love how there is so much choice these days and it's so much easier to colour-coordinate with my outfit than it was in the days of the Nokia 3310 (my old friend). I'm definitely going to stick with iPhones when I upgrade this summer, Jon has just upgraded to the 5s and the camera is so amazing! You can see more information here on Three:

What are your go-to colours when the sunshine comes out? Let me know!
Love Dani
