Tan Jeans with Pink Jumper!

Hello and what a glorious day it's been today - cold, but bright and sunny.  How's your day been?
Mine,  rather a change from last Saturday when I was throwing myself down a mountain at full speed in a snow storm, and today relaxing at home, with the hardest task deciding to have tea or coffee with my breakfast!

Negotiating what beverage to have in this attire, jeans and jumper as usual, with nothing new except the boots, I love these boots.  First wear and they are so comfortable, slip on like Cinderellas glass slipper, with the added benefit of being a great match for lots of outfits. I'll be wearing these with so many different jeans and jumpers, I hope you wont get bored of them, I'm sure I wont!

Getting their first airing this year, my Matalan tan jeans, fitting high on the waist, great for pulling everything 'in'!  Over these I've chosen a pale pink H and M crossover fine knit jumper.  I've put this over a plain pink vest top, and then matched in two scarves twisted together - one plain, the other floral cotton in beautiful spring inspiring colours, the likes of pink, yellow, mauve and green.  A real pick-me-up to brighten my outfit.
Who else is pining for Spring?  I've not been into the stores since Christmas, and I cannot wait to see what styles and colours are filtering in.





The first time I've worn these gorgeous boots, but I'm having to pick and choose exactly when I do - being suede I don't want to ruin them in wet weather.
The slip on boots, have a medium height heel that makes them a joy to wear, and with the block heel, they are sturdy too! These coming from one of my favourite shops - T K Maxx. However I know Debenhams have some super examples too.





Wrapping two scarves together - one plain, one patterned or floral makes for an interesting 'one off' scarf, that you can personalise yourself!  Both of mine I've had on my scarf rack for ages, and scarfs can be a cheap or expensive item to jazz up any ensemble.



I've something very exciting in the pipe line and can't wait to share it with you.
Oh and I'll be visiting the stores for ideas, inspiration and some purchases before long, lets hope this cold weather with shove off and we can really start to think of Spring and brightening up the wardrobe.




So long for today, catch up with you soon. X
