In the interest of full disclosure, I had to up the saturation on these images because it was just so darn gloomy here. It must have a glow feature in it. Because it turns out, it gave the whole thing a lovely soft sheen and my skin a rosy glow that it didn’t really have today. Heck. Where’s the saturation filter in real life…?

All items in this post were purchased by me. For once. Go me. But if you want to know more about my disclosure policy, because I do work with most of these brands all the time, pop over to the PR information for the disclosure policy.

  • Renee

    You look fab! Ive just bought a long skirt and painted my nails pink for the first time ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Thanks! Oooo, goody. Enjoy yourself. Painting my nails random colours gives me more pleasure than I care to admit these days. Haha.ย 

  • I think blue is definitely your colour!
    The nails are looking really good now. I’ve tagged you for a challenge over at my place….

      Love this bag. It squishes SO much stuff into it.ย Thanks Sarah. My sis chose the scarf and she was absolutely correct, it’s beautiful.ย

    Hi there – I’ve wandered over from River’s blog and was immediately struck by the blue of your eyes, the blue of the shirt and the scarf – Lovely!

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Thanks Kath. Welcome along. I can’t take credit for the eyes, they go way back in my Dad’s family. We pretty much all have them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

  • I love this outfit – blue is definitely your colour! As for your nails, they are putting mine to shame. I better get back on the NoBITE! icky tasting polish bandwagon!

    Re: gloomy days, you’re better of doing a curves bump than upping your saturation. It issue is more about exposure in the mid-tones and highlights than it is about colour xx

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Thanks Hannah. I do love blue. Mine are actually shorter thanks to a book reading, nail biting incident the other week. They’re making a comeback though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Great tip. Thanks. I’ll have a look at it next time. But I just cannot resist a bright colour splash on a gloomy day. Haha. Curves you say. Off to investigate.ย
