Outfit: My Two Favourite Quality Streets

As soon as I put these two pieces together this morning, the first thing that sprung to mind was Quality Streets & my two favourites... The purple one & the green triangle! This is going to sound really sad, but the thought of looking like a giant Quality Street made me feel all giddy and excited for the rest of the day. 
Take note ladies, if you're ever feeling a bit down, just dress like your favourite confectionery- It works a treat! Ha.









As much as I love wearing my monochromes, I do quite often like to splash a bit of colour, and more often than not when I do I like to go the whole hog and mix brights together like this emerald green skirt & plum purple cami. I like colour blocking but I feel your outfit items have to have the same colour tones to work properly - Pastel colours with pastel colours, jewel colours with jewel colours etc etc. 
Todays' midi skirt comes from Primark, I've had this a few months now but to be honest I don't particularly wear it that often, It's a bit restrictive and by this I mean I should have bought the next size up! Ha. It's quite nice to wear day to day, but for an evening meal or drinks out with friends unfortunately it's a deffinite no no. It's a shame really because it's such a lovely colour - That'll teach me to buy things without trying them on wont it!
I've teamed my midi with a simple purple cami, again this is something really sad, but I love wearing this because I have a bra which matches the plum colour exactly! I really hate having unmatching bra straps on show, it's just all a little but messy isn't it... But maybe that's my inner bra snob coming out?

What do you think of my Quality Streets inspired outfit?

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
