Here is the final look from my collaboration with Irish label Charlotte and Jane. I initially thought the combination of colors, pink and orange would look strange together but I think it works as long as you keep accessories simple.
Yes you will probably think I look super pale in these photos but that is my natural coloring – 365 days of the year! I detest fake tan and rarely wear it. I learned to embrace my pale skin but trust me it took a long time. I used to be addicted to fake tan when I was a teenager but I’ve moved on from that phase.
Irish women generally are way too ashamed of their natural coloring which is ironic really when you think of all the women around the world who spend a fortune on creams to bleach their skin to make them look paler.
As I mentioned before, this is the third look I styled from Charlotte and Jane. You can see the other looks here and here. I love the cut and fabric of these dresses. they are perfect for a wedding, day at the races or maybe when I get a raise, I can have the girls design me some bespoke work-wear 🙂
