Pink is definitely my colour this spring. I'm obsessed with it, and have gone from owning no pink clothes to a wardrobeful with embarassing speed! Zalando offered me a voucher to spend on their website and so of course I used the 'sort by colour' option to come up with this pink outfit. I haven't really explored Zalando's website much before now - although we featured them on Take 10 I had not realised how extensive their clothing range was, or seen the Zalando Collection.

Given it has such a great range I really wanted to pick some brands that I wouldn't normally buy from, so I went for this Stefanel skirt and a quicksilver t-shirt (I literally haven't bought anything from quicksilver since I was 13 and in my sporty phase. I had a great t-shirt with a pair of sunglasses on it which I wore everywhere, with my reebok tracksuit bottoms - so trendy!) I'm very happy with both items - the quality is nice and I'm really happy with the fit, which is usually what stops me buying online as much as I otherwise would. I haven't been wowed by the highstreet this spring, so I can definitely see myself venturing online more to look for brands I don't usually see, which Zalando is great for. It's originally a European website, so they have a lot of cool companies on there you don't usually get in England.

PS the post title is from Geek in the Pink by Jason Mraz which I am equally obsessed with!

1. You look so different in glasses! They really suit you!

2. I'm beginning to think I might have been mistaken in buying the blue version of those shoes - I haven't yet managed to work them into an outfit that I'm entirely happy with, but your white ones see, more versatile. Oh well!

I love that tee. Cannot believe it's quicksilver, haven't looked at them since I was 14 and thought I was a skater. Bahaha. Think I might need to have a wee juke at their stuff now

Weird, I have never heard of Zalando until this morning, when I got an email reply informing me that the Miss L Fire sandals I wanted are sold out on the Miss L Fire website, but Zalando still have them. They're called Bluebird by the way, and they're AMAZING.

I love the belt loops on the skirt, and how versatile the whole outfit is. I could go to work in that, and would definitely wear it on days off too.

I love the glasses and actually want some myself! The tee is cute and I adore the colour of your skirt- a beautiful coraly pink (to my eyes at least).

Fantastic! I love the color as well and bought a pink blouse though I never wore that color in previous years.

But the skirt looks a bit large for you if my eyes are not fooling me! I'm sure it it would look even better when it's fitted. Such a good, relaxed and pretty outfit for warm spring days.
