Feeling Blue

Friday, 19 April 2013


Panic not. The title of this post isn't literal. I'm not gloomy or anything. I'm actually fairly hyper due to my usual high intake of coffee and the prospect of a day volunteering at the British Eventing competition at Kelsall Hill tomorrow. Yay, horses!


I just somehow ended up wearing many, many shades of blue. Cardi, coat, shoes, tights, jewellery..even my specs are blue! If you squint hard enough then the bag and skirt could be classed as grey-ish blue and greeny-blue. Right? Oh ok then, not really.  But considering I didn't even think I owned this many blue things, that's quite good! It's not generally a colour that appeals to me but I may be changing my mind on that point.


Did I mention yay, horses!  Cos look, they're on my top.  Yay, horses!  I bought this in Bath (tres appropriate given the Regency/carriage driving heritage) on a complete whim.  You know when you walk past a shop and your pattern radar locks in on something awesome?  It was one of those moments. I had to buy it. It's brilliant.

Top - Oasis
Cardi & skirt - H&M sales
Coat - Tu
Flat shoes - StylistClick
Bag - Accessorize, birthday present
Ring - Next Clearance
Necklace - Sunday Girl

  3. Blue looks good on you. I had the exact same pattern radar moment in H&M not long ago, although mine isn't as exciting as your horse and carriage top! That's grand!
    Have fun tomorrow.

  14. Hello, I'm a brand-new reader. I've just begun scrolling down through your rather brilliant outfit posts, and lo and behold, I see a Sunday Girl necklace. I happen to be the Sunday Girl's sister, and witnessed the birth of the brand, in our kitchen, many years ago! I know she's doing rather well with her business, but it's a thrill to spot her jewellery on blogs! So exciting that I felt moved to comment!
    Lovely outfit. I am especially taken with the sparkly shoes!
