Cropped Navy Blue Smart ChinosI've mentioned before my tendency to overdress, rather than underdress, right?  Well, this means needing to constantly put together handfuls of outfits each season that sit somewhere in the middle of the scale; ones that suit various occasions without looking totally out of place.  Now the warmer weather is here, my go-to is short-sleeve, or completely sleeveless shirts.  The frillier and fancier, the better!  Don't you just love this flamboyant statement trend?!

Al-occasion Pretty Spring StylingThis kind of middle-ground outfit means you can easily sweep from one occasion to the next without needing to change.  Needless to say, 'various occasions' is one hell of a sweeping statement!  I'm mainly talking meetings, dinners, seeing friends, shopping, dates and parties.  Wear five-inch pink satin stilettos to the gym at your own peril.  I've kept the focus on the gorgeous frilled shirt, working in just two other colours - hot pink (lips and shoes) and navy (bag and chinos).
