Yellow with bare legs, plus NY Times feature

So this outfit totally gives it away that my outfit posts are several days behind the actual day I wore them – everyone in the UK knows the gorgeous weather has turned this week and it’s no longer “summer”! We had so many beautiful days up to yesterday that I couldn’t keep up with posting all the outfits I photographed. I hope no-one minds; I would post every day if I had the time but I’d have to choose to stop either eating, sleeping, exercising or going to work ðŸ˜‰

Well I certainly never expected to be getting bare legs out so early in the year – they still look so white in the photos even though I’d already started the spray tan. =Grrrreat= And I LOVE this light summery sweater but it is a bugger for catching and pulling. Note to self: don’t wear a scaley snake bracelet with fine knits. You’ll regret it…!

Happy Wednesday, lovely readers!

    Wow, that's terrific about the NY Times! I love that skirt you're wearing in "today's" ensemble too.

    Congratulations on the NY Times achievement! Wow!

    I am such a fool to not have contacted you regarding our How I Wear My post today…Jill and I did colorblocking this month and you would have been the ideal person to show us all how to do it.

    And of course, I adore this pattern mixing look on you…the blue really sets it all off.

      You know I think you did tell me earlier in the month, Adrienne, but I totally forgot… I think I should make a little bloggy calendar for all these link ups etc.!! Never mind, I'll come over and see what next month will be and make a note 😉

      Thanks for your lovely comments too! C xoxo

    That is awesome – congrats! I love this outfit too. And I'm so happy to be able to wear dresses and skirts without tights now! Yay for warmer weather!

    Again thanks so much for your help. I just posted a bigger me. To big but to tired to try to figure out how to fix it. Will try to find time this weekend. 11 hours today and not looking great tomorrow! Have a great weekend!

    congrats on your new found celebrity! I love the skirt in this outfit!

    I love that snake bracelet! It's so creepy/awesome. In real life I hate snakes, but I would definitely be willing to wear snake jewelry.

    Also, congrats on the NY Times feature! That's so exciting!
