The fab yellow jacket

Earlier this spring I saw a fashion spread declaring that yellow was the latest trend to follow. Great news as it's a lovely colour for me, from pale primrose to thick dark mustard, it's all good. Well, you can imagine my delight when I came across this little beauty on one of my foray's to my favourite Penzance charity shop. The fit is perfect, the cut very Chanel, the fabric even has a touch of gold yarn running through it (I'm partial to a bit of sparkle), but best of all it's so bloomin' versatile! This will play out over the months and I make no apologies - I can't wait to see how many outfits will benefit from this finishing touch.
P.S. I need to point out that these fab tights actually have a green pattern at knee height hence the odd poses trying to show it off!

    1. Hi Rose, I know I've already acknowledged this but wanted to say thanks for dropping by. The cuff and pearls are still proving to be mainstays. I think the change in weather will bring the brogues back into play soon xxx
