Shades of Blue With a Pop of Yellow

I did my usual trick recently of going to TKMaxx to return something and coming out with more items than I went in with! I spotted these jeans prominently displayed at the end of the rail, and when I saw the price (£14.99) and the quality of the denim I had to try them on. I loved them so much I bought two pairs! They are by a label called Butt I Love You, and are supposed to make your derriere look perkier. Well, I don’t know if they do in my case, all I know is they fit well and feel great on.

They’re very stretchy and don’t bag or sag, even after I’ve been wearing them all day. Obviously I’m not the only one who loves them because they are sold out almost everywhere. I can’t even find them on the TKMaxx website, but I did manage to track down a lighter wash version here. Poshmark have some too.

I combined different shades of blue with a pop of yellow as it’s one of my favourite colour combinations, especially for Spring.

As the weather wasn’t freezing (for a change) I decided to debut these open toe ankle boots. I’ve been waiting ages to wear them; I bought them at the end of the summer and missed the boat with the weather. I think they’ll work well with skirts as well as jeans. I combined different shades of blue with a pop of yellow as it’s one of my favourite colour combinations, especially for Spring. The faux fur jacket keeps out the chill and the hat covers up my unruly hair!

I’m keeping it short and sweet this week as I’ve been burning the candle at both ends as well as the sides lately working and packing for holiday…by the time you read this I’ll be catching up on sleep by the pool 🙂

      Thanks Pam! It’s impossible to leave empty handed isn’t it?

    I love the pop of yellow too! And TK-Maxx is one of my favourite places to visit when I’m in the UK!
    Have a wonderful holiday. I hope you have lovely weather, because it’s still raining here in the Algarve 🙁

    What a fun and funky look! Love that fur jacket and multi-print booties. Hope you enjoy a nice break!

    i do that in some store.. do you ever return something and then just leave? hehe. I do buy more than one pair of jeans in the same style if I find a pair that is soft that looks good on. I did that too with some Old Navy jeans and Wit and Wisdom from Nordies. if you find a pair that feels that good, why not! I love the dark denim, they look great on you! Tje blue faux fur vest is adroable! I also love the peep toe booties, they have such style! Your pop of yellow is perfect!
    Have a wonderful day!

      Thank you Jess! I very rarely leave TKMaxx empty handed, I think “oh I’ll just have a quick look” and before I know it I’ve bought something!

      Aw thanks Shelbee! The booties definitely help to elongate my legs and the dark denim is flattering too. Thanks for stopping by!

    You got such a great deal on those jeans! It’s funny that TJ/TK Maxx has a different name in the UK—does their ad campaign revolve around “Maxxinistas” too? Such subtle cultural differences. 😉
