A Ray of Sunshine Yellow - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello my lovely friends.
How are you all?

Been a very strange week for me so far, you see I'm sitting on Jury Service and have come home everyday with a brain like mush (nothing new there people that know me will say).  It's been an interesting situation and I can't say I'm enjoying it really.  You see I haven't been to 'proper' work since before I had my first child ... she's 33 now so It's all been a bit of a shock to the system.  I've had to get up early for a reason!  I usually get up fairly early, but it's not the same when you don't have to be somewhere is it!  
Concentrating has also been a hard one for me too, I'm usually engrossed in blogging of some description or scrolling through IG .... and having not been able to get on there much am really missing it. 

Last week this was the outfit I picked to wear when it was much cooler to actually wear jeans.  With warmer weather enveloping us at the moment I'm not sure when I'll be wearing jeans again!

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Who likes wearing white jeans?  I'm a big fan of pairing white with a nice bright shade, so it's no surprise I chose this radiant yellow tunic top last week.  I wanted to entice the sun, which I did really well some ten minutes after taking these shots .... seems it worked so well I managed to lure the sun and heat over the past few days too .... it's been so hot hasn't it?  Just the right weather for sitting in court eh!

Bonmarche kindly gifted this beauty to me and as they didn't have it in vibrant pink this was a fabulous alternative.  I love the comfortable style of it and feel it goes so well with my jeans, but would also be great over a traditional blue jean too.  It's an over-sized tunic* that seemed a tad too baggy for me in my usual size, so I tried a smaller one instead.  Love the outcome of that and hey who doesn't like to show off in a smaller size ... 😊

There's a choice of four other shades that the top is available in.  They are all interesting shades like coral and turquoise & would look super cute with white jeans like mine, and for the price of £18 the machine washable fancy top is an excellent buy for warmer Autumn days.

Have you spotted my shoes?  You may have seen them before.  I call them my rainbow shoes (these are similar) for obvious reasons.  I rescued them for the charity pile when my daughter decided she didn't want them anymore.  They always create a stir when I wear them and look great with so much.  You can see when I styled them with a black lace dress and with my denim jumpsuit and orange biker jacket.

#Chicandstylish #LINKUP time.

Shall we see who's favourite from last week.  Say hello to Shauna - Lipgloss and Lace.  Isn't this such an exciting blouse!  Just look at the cuff detail, it'll work in your favour with jeans and trousers too Shauna.

  1. I love white jeans too! Especially in the winter—they look fabulous with black and well, every colour really! Your outfit is gorgeous, the blouse particularly so and I swoon over teh shoes every time I see them! They would look great with Gail's handbag this week (which I'm also coveting lol)!!
    WOW jury service, eh? That must be so hard on the brain lol. I would be the same as you. I bet you're exhausted when you get home!

  5. I love my white jeans: and with yellow: superb! That is a fun top and love the shoes and bracelets. It has been about 10 years since I have worked. Only have tutored and babysat since then and nothing for the last 4 years. I am looking forward to next year with all 4 boys at school and seeing what I will do with myself.

  6. The weather is so fickle this time of year, isn't it? I LOVE that yellow top, Jacqui. It says summer and fall all in one piece! After driving to work for 30+ years, it is indeed different to take my time and determine my own schedule, so I can relate. Jury duty is pretty enlightening, isn't it?

  7. Hello again for this week!

    Thank you very much for hosting this great and stylish party!

  8. Oooo Your shoes are so cute and fun! Love the yellow on you!


  9. That is such a pretty top on you!

  10. I really love that colour on you! Lovely to see a white and yellow outfit for summer. I'd love to snaffle those shoes to go with my rainbow bag!

  11. The yellow looks so striking with the white jeans, I'm lasting out my summer clothes as long as possible! Michelle xx

  12. Hi Jacqui!
    Oh, Jury Duty takes up some time, right? I love the look here, such a pretty yellow tunic and it really shines with the white denim. I have been wearing jeans a bit here, it is "cooler" but still 80!

    Have a great weekend!

  13. Jacqui, you do look like a ray of sunshine. White jeans are always a fabulous choice, no matter the season. When paired up with yellow, though, the look is fun and fresh. I typically size down on oversized tops because I don't have the shoulders to carry off the look otherwise. I hope that your jury service concludes quickly and that you have a wonderful weekend.


  14. Love the look- and especially the rainbow shoes!
