Animal print and the blues











Today's thoughts are going to be brief... I've had a total waste of a Sunday being flat on my back with the worst backache ever - thank goodness I had 90% prepared this post in advance! So this outfit was inspired by the colours of this pin which I absolutely loved (and yeah I know it was a guy's outfit). And I'm reeeeally loving my round green sunglasses at the moment, they're fast becoming my go-to sunnies for our British pseudo-summer ;)

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a rather more productive Sunday than mine. This pain had better be gone by the morning... I think my body is saying to me "40 in a week, you say? Well in case you forgot you're not getting any younger - get a load of THIS!!"

  15. I love the way you used colour in this outfit - perfect for brightening up our grey weather. (Pseudo-summer is an excellent way to describe it!) I do hope your back feels even better soon.

  16. My favorite colours these days - I have yet to try the blues with coral red instead of pink though. And better sunglasses than umbrellas as accessory!
