A touch of yellow

Another new outfit for me today. I think the culottes are making their first appearance along with the fab yellow sling backs. I came across these shoes last summer in Topshop and now wish I'd bought them in another colourway. The style is perfect for work, stylish yet being flat makes then functional too. I'm about to scour the Internet to see if there are any more out there this summer. The little barrel bag has been worth it's weight in gold as you'll see if you scroll through the past couple of month's posts. It again would be fab in another colour, so I maybe need to search that too.
The bomber jacket is by Zara, but I found it in a charity shop in Exeter last year. That was a bumper session where I came across a little corner of the city which is heavily populated with charity shops - oh joy! I had taken an empty suitcase away with me, confident that I would be lucky, and I was. Living on an island does help you become a speed shopper and a bit of an expert too as it's so difficult to return items when you're back home. I remember being away for my daughter Sasha's graduation, and we managed to divert my husband for an hour so that we could escape to the sales. We synchronised our watches as we headed off up Leamington Spa high street like commandos on a mission. The adrenaline was running as we zipped from shop to shop like finely tuned missiles, targets having been reconnoitred in advance so that no time was lost. Time up, and we staggered back to the hotel flushed with success, bargains ready to be stashed away for the journey home. She and I are indeed a shopping force to be reckoned with!
