I’m wearing pink and yellow. No great surprise there, except this was my Easter outfit and who doesn’t want to dress like an Easter egg at this time of year?! Maybe just me then…
I tend to think that Easter heralds the start of spring proper, so there’s usually no way I’m ever going to wear something dark for Easter. This year Easter Sunday coincided with the March family birthday party I mentioned in my quarter year review post on Friday (which I might make a regular thing) and I originally picked out an outfit of burgundy trousers and deep blue floral blouse… It just seemed so WRONG somehow. I found myself reaching for the pink and yellow which was a much happier choice – and what could top off an outfit fit for an Easter egg but a camel coat (which may as well be brown for chocolate, no)?!
I’m SO much happier in these sorts of colours – I’m totally over winter and while we seem to have lost the snow for good we now have the rain. April showers are in full force and I don’t think we’ll see any sun till tomorrow. But tomorrow is Keith’s birthday and so we’ll have to think of something to do that’ll keep us dry and warm, and the pub lunch (log fire is a must) is still looking like a good choice.
SHOP THE LOOK:
Now I look back at these pictures I love this outfit a whole lot more than I did on the day. It’s one of those combinations that didn’t set my world alight in the mirror (I mean, I quite liked it), but it really, really works on camera. None of the pieces are new except for the fabulous (and newish) pink ruffle boots (UK link) which I wore in February with shades of pink and blue. The longline coat has been with me for years, has been worn countless times and will be worn countless MORE times I’m sure.
There are some pieces you own which seem to work with everything no matter what the base outfit is, and this coat is one of them. This coat by Winser is similar (on sale!) and I guarantee you it will be worth every penny, especially in a colour like camel.
I have a busy couple of weeks ahead with various projects I’m still working on – all to be revealed in due course – as well as house viewings which we hope will result in an offer before long. It would be nice to move in the summer, fingers crossed the people who come to see our house love it as much as we do (I know we’re moving but we still love the home we’ve poured so much love and hard work into)…!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
