Happy International Women’s Day! How’s your week going so far? It’s starting to feel more like spring now, with the evenings drawing out and blossom appearing on the trees. It’s still chilly though, so I won’t be packing my jumpers away just yet. All being well we will be going on holiday next month, but we’ve had so many holiday postponements that I’m loathe to get my hopes up. Over the years we’ve had holidays cancelled due to a volcanic eruption, lockdowns and catching Covid. I won’t fully relax until I’m on the beach!
Although I’m still wearing my winter wardrobe, I can inject some fresh spring hues into my outfits. Colour blocking spring brights somehow takes the edge off the biting cold breeze! I love to wear greens, blues and yellows at this time of year. I’m finding myself particularly drawn to turquoise lately. My outfit for January’s Thrifty Six post was my first foray into mixing turquoise with yellow. I’ve mixed things up a bit with this outfit by adding green into the mix. I did consider wearing my turquoise trousers to make it look like a suit, but I decided to try something different instead. I wasn’t sure about this outfit at first, but my jewellery helps bring it all together.
The half moon pendant is a beautiful deep shade of turquoise that stands out against the yellow. I don’t usually wear a necklace with a high neck top or jumper but the longer length breaks up the block of yellow and brings the colour of the jacket and trousers together. (The necklace is also available in black, which is equally as gorgeous). I found a gold and turquoise cuff that I bought many years ago for a few pounds, which matches my jacket. My yellow bag and boots pull this three-colour outfit together.
