How was your weekend? Storm Dennis blew in and damaged our TV aerial, but other than that we escaped quite lightly. I’m travelling down to Cambridgeshire today to stay with my mum, so I’m hoping for quiet journey. Pete just got a new car today (I decided not to take it though…I need to get used to it before a long journey) and it’s yellow! So today’s outfit of bright yellow and houndstooth is quite fitting for the occasion!
I bought this skirt in Zara when I was in Madeira in October. However, when I got home I noticed that it had a button missing. Unfortunately it didn’t have a spare one attached to the label so I had to track another one down at the Trafford Centre. It wasn’t easy though – it was showing in stock online but I couldn’t find any in the shop. It turned out that they were still in the stock room so I had to ask someone to get me one. Anyway, it was worth the bother, especially as it was so much cheaper in Madeira than in the UK.
Whenever I wear black and white I love to add a bright colour into the mix. Red is usually my preferred choice, but I decided to try bright yellow instead this time. I added a yellow bag for a double hit of sunshine and topped it off with a black jacket that I bought in a charity shop. The black and white marble earrings complement the skirt and provide a focal point in the absence of a necklace.
