I’ve always wanted to have a splash of yellow in my wardrobe, but having blonde hair makes that hard. Yellow is a TRICKY colour on a blonde (aside from accessories). The only shade I can get away with is a pale creamy yellow, like butter. On a quick zip through Zara, I happened upon this yellow jacket which was not mustard and not saffron and not sunflower, but the perfect, cheery, pale, buttery, shade of sunshine. I was thrilled and grabbed it immediately (It is on sale right now if you need it too).
I rarely wear jeans in ‘real life’ so I rarely wear them on the blog either. This pair is Frame’s Le Garcon style, which I mentioned in my last post. I thought since I posted about them last week, I should at least show them to you! This pair is about four years old, so they have faded to a light almost-pastel blue. While they are too washed out to wear with a lot of things, they’re not too light to wear with a buttery yellow coat and other light colours. Keeping with my pastels theme, I wore a powder blue silk top and added some pink heels and a pink sequin clutch to my yellow coat. An outfit like a handful of sugared almonds.
By now, you know that I’m a more is more less is a bore kind of gal, so I added a rainbow necklace and some blue sunglasses and earrings… and a ring. This is the only photo where I’m not completely windblown; I had about thirty seconds where the wind was not blowing with full force. I’m not complaining, because it drove away the recent heat wave and made wearing a jacket possible! Most of the photos were a more disastrous version of the one below (basically me clawing hair out of my eyes and spitting it out of my mouth!).
This is the closest I ever get to a bicycle.
Today’s post is short and sweet because I’ve had an insanely busy week. It is about to get even busier once my son’s nursery school closes for the summer at the end of this week!
