OOTD: Mellow Yellow

boden clothing kelly style handbag yellow

Oh wowzer! It was so windy when we took these photos my everything was flying everywhere. My handbag was flapping in the wind, my cap was billowing out and my hair looks like I had an electric shock! It was crazy, but photographer Samantha Taylor is such a trooper, that even when I was hopping about keeping warm, she was still snapping away trying to get the perfect shot of my outfit!

Y-3 Trainers

I’m super obsessed with these Y-3 trainers, they are from Soletrader and they are literally the best trainers I have seen in ages! They have a luxe sportswear feel, but somehow they are smart enough to wear with a cape and a cute little handbag. If you have never shopped on Soletrader before, you should really consider it, they have a huge selection of amazing footwear by brilliant brands. It’s well worth checking out!

Boden Handbag

I have literally been dreaming about owning a Hermès kelly handbag for so long now. I have even watched Youtube vids where people are showing their bags and discussing the leather, stitching and how to accessorise it with bag charms and twillies, completely obsessed. Why?! Because it’s a beautiful, classic handbag and quite frankly, I can’t have one. Before we bought a house I had been popping in often to Hermès to buy bits and bobs, ties, scarves, scarf ring, perfumes…. I had tried on shoes, browsed the homeware, tried to make friends with an SA, but alas, just as I thought I was getting somewhere (she told me a special day I should pop in and find her, no less!) we decided to buy a house. Suddenly the Hermès fund has been spent on 2 new bathrooms. Damn. Oh well! This Boden Amanda bag is carried in the similar way to a Kelly and the bright yellow colour is cheery enough to *almost* make me forget about Hermès. oh and it doesn’t cost the price of 2 bathrooms, instead it’s the equivalent of a square metre of floor tiles! I totally nailed home economics!

Boden Sunglasses

These Boden sunglasses are a beautiful see-through turquoise colour with bright yellow temples. Not only do they protect my eyes from the low, bright sun, but they also shield my eyes from the insanely strong wind and flying sand. Not even kidding, it’s one of the few downfalls of living by the seaside!
