Springtime Colours In Winter

Shades of green
Brown Western boots
Apple green and yellow
So when I wore this outfit, the comments I got from my family ranged from You look like Peter Pan, to I was going to say an Irish… [er, leprechaun?], to Ooh you’re blending into the background. When I put the outfit together I hadn’t thought any of those things – but okay… I’m now thinking Robin Hood, myself 😉

Please hurry up Springtime – I’m wearing greens and yellow to urge you to get a move on. I’d like to wear less than three pairs of socks a day, and two t-shirts under a thick sweater, and sometimes two scarves. I need a bit more room in my handbag as at the moment I have so many gloves in there, but rarely can I find an actual pair that match. In the meantime I shall prance about in my new “what a bargain” Western boots from New Look and steal from the rich to feed the poor. Or something.

    Awww..I didn't think you looked like any of those things when I clicked! I thought that the mix of different shades of green was genius! I don't think I've ever seen two shades of green mixed together for an outfit, and I love it. Those boots are so cute too! <3

    yes, what is up with the un-matching glove mysteries in my bag too? : > Love your Springy colors and fab scarf. xoxoxo

    I didn't think Peter Pan at all, I just thought, "Ooh, I SO need a sweater that colour!" Green is my favourite colour, so naturally I love this: and I'm SO with you on wishing for Spring – my handbag is also crammed full of non-matching gloves at this point in the year. How does that even happen?!

    I think you pull it off nicely and I'm really loving the scarf!

    Those booties are FAB!

    Go leprechaun : ) …just means you get a bunch of gold at the end of the rainbow right? Or maybe that is your scarf.
