The Colours of Summer: Yellow Ruffle Blouse, Blue Chinos, Oversized 70s Sunglasses

Summer brights: Ruffled yellow blouse, mint trousers, low pointed white heels, Jennifer Hamley Model KT Workbag clutch, oversized 70s sunglasses | Not Dressed As Lamb

This is a very simple outfit in perfect summer colours: A deep sunshine yellow ruffle blouse, blue chinos like the sky and white block heel shoes like the clouds. How sickly sweet, but it’s true, you know…?!

It’s a smart outfit – I’d had my eye on the yellow ruffled blouse from Oasis for aaaaaages. I’d done that thing where you sign up for email notifications when it comes into stock and got it straight away with the pale pink blazer and matching trousers I wore on Monday (also Oasis). How fantastic is that? I love that about the internet and modern technology. Not so good for your bank balance though πŸ˜‰

DOUBLING UP AS A ZIP-OFF CLUTCH, IT’S AN INGENIOUS PIECE OF DESIGN THAT COULD ONLY HAVE BEEN DESIGNED BY A WOMAN (A VERY SMART AND CLEVER WOMAN).

The gorgeous clutch is part of my Jennifer Hamley England Model KT Workbag which I reviewed and gushed about as well on Monday’s post. Designed for your iPad but doubling up as a zip-off clutch, it’s an ingenious piece of design that could only have been designed by a woman (a very clever woman). Beautiful and practical.

    Ruffles! Ah.. I love ruffles. This yellow looks great on you too! This is one color I dont wear often as I dont think it is great on ME. It looks so pretty with the blue too! I think it fun to try new color combinations, right?
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Very nice. An unusul colour combination but that is what you are famous for. And it always works.

    I like the blue and yellow together. Not colors I have mixed before and it is very pretty!

    You are the queen of mixing colours, C!! You look gorgeous and the golden sunlight creates such a beautiful scenery.
    I love the block heels – elegant shoes which are comfortable, a real winner!

      Thanks sweetie – they're such a funky shape aren't they πŸ˜‰

    I am inspired to write about rule breaking and trusting your gut…. I will link back to your inspiration! Thank you XXX

    Bright with a pastel – That's a quirky color combo that not everyone could pull off, but it suits your creative personality. Fun!

    I know what you mean, Samantha – I've started trusting my judgement about whether a piece works rather than "rules" about my shape… You're right, I shouldn't be wearing this shape with this detail with my boobs, but I thought it worked too!! Thanks sweetie, I appreciate your lovely comments as always x

      Thank you Patti – the nails were a nice deep contrast to the light colours of the outfit, weren't they?! xx

      Thanks Suzanne! I love how the yellow looked even more yellow in the low sun πŸ™‚

    • June 10, 2016 / 2:32 pm

      Aww thanks Julia – when you get the right shades I think yellow and blue together is gorgeous…!

    I love this outfit! The colors are so pretty and are perfect together! And that iPad bag/clutch is great, too! What a clever design indeed.
