It doesn’t take much but the weather is confusing my choice of outfits of late and I am getting a bit frustrated, I really want to start wearing happy, summer, light, bright clothes but would look a bit ridiculous in the pouring down rain and grey skies.

The “transitional” period between seasons is definitely getting longer and longer and the itch to wear white floaty cotton is not being scratched. Thank goodness I am off on the big bird again at the end of May so I can scratch away…ewwww metefolically speaking!

So my wardrobe still holds jackets, jeans and jumpers ( I pack away winter clothes and replace with summer and vice versa) and my summer wardrobe of gorgeousness is still packed away. I went to town a bit last summer and got some great things so I am excited to wear these again…especially my orange Alexander McQueen sandals with gold skull on the front, Finders Keepers White dress and Melissa Odabash crochet cover-up dress…..ahhhhh I can feel the sun on my skin ……Back to reality and jacket and jeans it was, the only saving grace was that it was my fabulous Missoni Jacket which I have mentioned before because it was a HUGE bargain. Styled with a white vest top from H&M , Jeans from Topshop and shiny pointy flats from LK Bennett. Perfect outfit for lunch with Mr HOL and a shopping trip.

The shopping trip was disastrous, I am on the hunt for a certain stripped bretton top and I can’t find it anywhere, please help and let me know of any. I want a navy and white stripped jersey top with equal stripes if that makes sense!…The search goes on, more internet browsing for me tonight.

Anyway, hope you all have a fabulous weekend whatever you are up too ( please let me know because watching The Amazing Spiderman 2 is about as exciting as I am getting! )

Take care

Amanda x

    • Thanks Jane, thought you would appreciate the jacket!! I actually love going to see the kids films, I have watched Frozen about 10 times! (don’t tell anyone) Have a great weekend too, bring on the wine xxx

  2. I am very much with you on this VERY LONG in between season! Roll on the summer, I have dresses and sandals galore to wear!

  3. I’m in love with that jacket- feel a pang of jealousy each time you wear it!! The weather is seriously depressing me too, I’m dressing for dry weather and hoping for the best just!

  4. Stunning jacket, it looks beautiful on. I bought a petite bateau breton today not equal stripes but it is the nicest I have seen …although you have to size down as they are on the big size (I like the MiH Breton too) Roll on summer I am desperate for some heat! Xx

  5. Beautiful jacket… the least this tricky transitional weather is perfect for wearing this kind of outfit! x
