The spell of glorious weather we’ve been enjoying is set to come to an end tomorrow, so I’ll be back to outfits like this one. Although I do love warm, sunny weather, it kills my motivation to workout because I just can’t exercise in the heat. I’ll still be wearing Summery colours though, even if I have to add an extra layer!
Lilac and golden yellow is one of my favourite colour combinations at the moment – it reminds me of irises. Nature is a wonderful source of colour inspiration. I’ve also worn these colours in Winter (see the post here) so they can work all year round.
I bought the jacket on eBay a few years ago, but when it arrived I was disappointed to find the lining in shreds. When I contacted the seller she said she hadn’t realised and gave me a refund, telling me to give it to charity. However, my mum did a decent repair job on it so I kept it. It’s a bit on the snug side, so I have to be very careful when reaching or stretching…I’ve heard a few stitches go!
The yellow jumper is a new purchase from Karen Millen – the sale was just too good to resist! I also bought a fabulous orange jumper which I’ll be featuring soon. After I last wore these lilac trousers I intended on getting them taken up a couple of inches. Having trousers that I can only wear with heels doesn’t give me much flexibility. However, I don’t have the sewing skills and finding someone else to do it isn’t easy under the current circumstances. So for now, I’ll have to stick to footwear with a heel or platform.
My hat is also a new-ish addition to my collection. I’ve recently discovered the online treasure trove that is Anthropologie, but it’s been a revelation! I’d always thought they only shipped to the U.S. The great thing is that shipping is free on orders over £50, and they often have extra discount codes on sale items. I think this lilac fedora cost around £30!
My yellow boots (slightly hidden by the long trousers) and bag match the sweater perfectly. I’ve added my amethyst Ottoman Hands disc earrings and Yaa Yaa London ring – this company sells the most amazing jewellery, and it’s reasonably priced too.
