1) I have a slight addiction to Oasis' blouses. They are light, perfectly tailored and have adjustable sleeves so can be worn in spring and summer too. When I saw this lime blouse (although Oasis call it 'Yellow', but it's more a hot, bright lime)... I purchased two. (Does anyone else purchase two of something they love??!) I have the same blouse cut in several other colours and patterns and have had a lot of compliments (link). I now have my eye on the teal one (link).
2) Long Tall Sally Herringbone Aline Magenta skirt. I am a big fan of A-line skirts- flattering to the figure and easy to style for formal or casual wear, however many don't have pockets. I am a practical girl and I love my trousers and skirts to have pockets. (It feels wrong if they don't have pockets- maybe that is just me?) The colour caught my eye, and I plan on pairing it with the cobalt blue coat... unless that is a bit bright... (link).
3) Wallis Cobalt Blue Funnel Coat (currently on offer with 20% off!) (link) I love this coat and it fits perfectly. Having mostly had dark coloured coats, I felt it was time to brighten my outdoor attire. A simple way to lift any outfit.

4) I'm now on the look out for a nice burgundy (or red) chunky scarf so I can keep the winter chills at bay. I found this one on ASOS (link), though I am still determined to knit one at some point in my life! If you know any good knitting sites, let me know!
5) Oasis Hummingbird jumper top. I've actually been finding that I can wear quite a few items at Oasis, so it seems they are catering for the slightly taller girl. Layering tops (or cheating and buying a 'fake' layered top) is a great way to gain an extra bit of length- especially with the current trend for cropped jumpers. This one at Oasis caught my eye- I'm a sucker for vintage inspired (bird) prints (link).
Are bright colours just for summer? How are you brightening your winter wardrobe?
