Between you and me - I've found a mustard jumper!

Morning fellow bloggers, and how are we feeling today?

What's your weather like? Is it playing fair?  We've been rather spoilt in the UK over the recent months, but I'm sure there will be some pay back on the scene before long! Ha ha.
I don't know about you, but I'm so looking forward to getting full swing into the likes of boots, jumpers, coats and scarfs. 
Since I've started blogging (only been since March) I've gotten so many ideas and inspiration from fellow bloggers, IG and the other social media that goes hand in hand with writing a blog.  Ideas of clothing I wouldn't normally wear, colours matched  in a way that I wouldn't have dared dream about and outfits I would not have had the courage to wear.  It's still early days, and don't get me wrong many things I've still resisted to try out - basically cose they freak me out and I KNOW they wont suit me!  But, hey - Rome wasn't built in a day!

Without any more rambling here's today's look.  Casual jeans.  I'm going to try very hard no to fall into the trap of jeans every day now the weather is cooler.

Watch out for No jeans challenge  in the next few weeks!

I attempted this back in May See here,  here  and here, which lasted a few days and was interesting to see what ideas came forward.  So I might try this out again, please 'watch this space.'

Back to my jeans today, these dark denim straight legs are from M and Co a couple of years old, but still looking good and bold.  My previously worn H and M tunic in cream, navy and the ever popular mustard looks great over the top of the jeans, mustard cardigan is playing a big part this season, although I could swap this for the mustard jumper that I've just found in my drawer!  Forgot all about that one ;-)
Cream patent loafers had their first airing this season, and I must say how comfortable they still are.  These are from Debenhams a few years ago, but the shops are full of them so they're yours for the picking.
Love these from M and S here black loafer/mule style on line for £29.50, but selling out in large sizes.






Love how these necklines sit so well together, the pattern on plain works well therefore no necklace needed!





What do you think on this repeated outfit?  Hope you like.

Off to check out what's in the sales, hope I can pick up a bargain or three!

Linking up with Shelbee on the edge pop across to check out hers and other great blogs for the Bloggers who have inspired me link up.
Bye bye.....X

  7. I'm quite in love with this mustard-esque hue of yellow. Whilst sunshiny yellow petrifies me like no other (well, perhaps equal to that of my fear of wide-legged pants), this particular shade, I can deal :)

    1. Thank you Anna, I'm so pleased you like. Yes I agree a playful vibe, I wonder if that's because of the flats, and the layers? Appreciate you stopping by.

  10. We just returned from holiday in Italy to very hot weather in Los Angeles. I am so ready for boots and cooler weather clothes too but it is not happening right now...What a fun outfit you have on! Looks great on you.

  11. Thank you Nora, how was Italy? I bet it was awesome. Weather still very changeable here, so everyday is different! Although not quite so warm as it was inn previous weeks. Trying to find suitable outfits, having to loose garments mid way through the day. Plays havoc with the look though! Jacqui

    1. Thanks Laurie, It's funny how you think a colour doesn't suit you, but get lots of compliments from it! I tend to layer in the cooler months, I'm either boiling hot or freezing cold - lol. x
