Lemon & Denim

 Looking at these photos, which were taken literally 24 hours ago, you would think that pleasant spring weather was upon us. Well i am here to tell you that today, today is like winter! 8 degrees celcius, pelting down with rain and gale force winds... i want to cry!!
 I'm sat at home staring out the window willing some dry weather our way. I think the April showers arrived a month late...boohoo!
But yesterday was nice enough to have a little walk at Aberkenfig Nature reserve, windy, but dry for a while.
 We then had some more moving and arranging of stuff to do.. yep still moving, so i threw on what i had worn the day before (i know pee-ew, stinky Rachel). Just a casual outfit, but one i kinda like right now, the jacket again, haha! I did warn you, i have a feeling it may feature heavily on the blog for the foreseeable.
Paul (hubs) looked pleasantly shocked when he saw me walk out the bedroom in this outfit, and commented on how nice i looked, then in the petrol station some random dude started chatting me up (this NEVER happens to me!) so for some reason i guess this outfit was pleasing to the male persuasion. Not a concept i'm overly familiar with, i'm not one to dress sexy, shall we say. So yes, lemon and denim is a nice kinda combo!


Coloured denim i think, is a saving grace for summer wear in the UK. Jeans like these lemon and coral and pastel varieties just perfect for these cool temperatures but at the same time feel spring fresh.


Jacket: Asos (old)
Jeans: Tesco (last summer)
Chambray shirt & bag: Next (last year) 
Boots: New Look

 Are you a coloured jeans fan? Whats your favourite colour right now?

  5. I love that jacket with the shirt! The colors look great together :) So fun that you walked around the nature reserve--I think the photos are beautiful.

    These yellow pants are cool! I have a lot of colored denim actually...so I can't really pick a favorite. It really depends on my mood and what I feel like wearing at the time.

  14. I am a huge fan of colored denim (and you look lovely in lemon)! My favorite pair right now are probably my kelly green ones, though in the fall it was my mustard ones and the winter my burgundy ones. It changes with the season, apparently. :)
