Yellow Tweed Preloved Jacket and Blue Frill Trousers

At about this time of year I start to feel a little jaded, everything feels a bit stagnant. The height of Summer has passed but Autumn is still a few weeks away. It’s a kind of limbo, but I don’t want to wish the dying days of Summer away. This time next year Isobel will be preparing for high school, and frankly that’s just a little bit alarming. So I want to make the most of the school holidays, even when she’s using up my contact lens solution to make yet more slime! (I really don’t get why kids are so obsessed with the stuff).

This yellow tweed preloved jacket and blue frill trousers capture the colours of Summer, but won’t look out of place in early Autumn.

Even though I feel a bit short on motivation and inspiration, putting outfits together almost always gets me out of a funk. And wearing bright colours is guaranteed to make me feel cheerier…especially when it involves a charity shop bargain or two! This yellow tweed preloved jacket and blue frill trousers capture the colours of Summer, but won’t look out of place in early Autumn. I’ve featured the trousers on the blog a couple of times before with a mustard top and pink graphic t-shirt. Bright blue is surprisingly versatile, but pairing it with yellow is probably my favourite combination.

The jacket isn’t the only preloved bargain because I found these Quay sunglasses in a charity shop for just £2!

I bought the jacket from a charity shop for £6…quite a bargain don’t you think? It’s from Marks and Spencer so it’s really good quality. It’s a perfect match for this Second Female blouse I bought in the Atterley sale last month. The jacket isn’t the only preloved bargain because I found these Quay sunglasses in a charity shop for just £2! I did wonder if I could justify buying another pair of sunnies, but for that price I couldn’t resist.

My Carvela jewel strap shoes mirror the blue and yellow in the rest of the outfit. You may have seen the trend for bags with clear sections lately. Well this bag was a gift from my Dad and step mother. They bought it in Madeira, where they are obviously very fashion forward…I’ll be able to find out for myself in October 🙂 There’s a yellow pouch inside so you don’t have to display the contents of your bag to the world. Just as well really, given the mess of tissues and receipts that’s usually inside mine!

Are you still in Summer holiday mode or are you looking forward to the new season?

    Love this bold color mix, Emma! Your tweed jacket is simply perfect.

  4. Gail says:

    Yellow and blue is such a lovely combo. You are the queen of accessorising – I love how your sensational shoes, bag and earrings highlight the colour scheme.

  5. This is so pretty on you! I love the butter yellow color and the jacket. The jewels on the shoes and the ruffles on the pants are the coolest detail. Yes, this is a tough time when I start to get excited about Fall, but it is going to be hot here for a few months.

    You have a gift for finding the perfect pieces and putting them together in an outfit! Those shoes were meant to be worn with the rest of these items! Such a deal on your sunglasses and blazer!

    Emma, that is the perfect transitional outfit! Love the yellow and blue color combo. I agree, it’s that time of year when we’re sort of in a holding pattern–and wish it would stay summer forever! Enjoy every minute with your daughter; my son is 27 and I can still remember thinking about him going to high school! Time flies!

    xx Darlene

    It’s funny that people are weary of summer at this point—it’s just getting started in San Francisco! I’m ready to break out my sundresses now 😉

    Sorry to be late to the party – how rude of me! Nice to see me featured here though, what a lovely surprise first thing in the morning. This outfit is adorable Emma, love everything about it. I wore my yellow trousers yesterday, they have similar detail on the hem, maybe will try pairing with blue next time. Jacqui Mummabstylish
