Three Coral Picks from Topshop

Coral and mint (there shall be an upcoming post re the latter) are everywhere this Spring /Summer and while i've been loving coral shades for lips (post on that HERE) I've also been recently looking into the colour for clothes, blush and accessories. I think it's one of those ideal colours for pale and tanned skin alike, hence why I got these little lovelies from Topshop. Bizarrely, all of these look like variations of pink/peach/orange in these photos but I can assure you they are in fact coral in real life!
I am in love with this playsuit- I'm not sure I've ever owned a playsuit that sits this well on, it's just very flattering to my shape and a bit perfect really. The back is absolutely stunning- check out that lace detail!

Secondly, I picked up these fabulous coral heels. I love Topshop heels-I've always found them to be well made and that little bit funky in design so they tend to look a lot more expensive than they actually are. Bonus! I already have plans to wear them with a bird print dress I have that these match exactly and also just to dress up a pair of skinny blue jeans and a floral top.

Lastly, I finally bit the bullet and got one of the Topshop cream blushes:

This is head over heels, a cream to powder blush in, you guessed it- a pure coral, no shimmer in this and once applied it gives a lovely fresh faced glow.

I apply this using my Real Techniques stippling brush and I can imagine it lasting a long time as only a small amount is needed on the brush- it's super pigmented and blends easily.

I love this and will definitely be trying out more shades.

So what do ye think? Anyone else loving the coral this season?
