After a stressful couple of weeks, not enough sleep and a distinct lack of sunshine (I know, I know, it’s shining in London. Sucks to be northern!), I wasn’t feeling particularly cheerful when I forced myself out of bed this morning. But rather than wallow in self pity and black clothing, I turned to my wardrobe and picked out some pieces to cheer myself up.
The coral-orange jumper was a January sale buy – it’s so soft and cosy, but the bright colour makes it perfect for spring. The minty green shirt was a recent impulse buy but I love the light and airy feel especially when paired with heavier fabrics. And the grey blazer, flats and spike necklace you’ve seen many times before, but they’re perfect for pulling an outfit together.
The real star of this show is my new Emma Fox bag, which I bought from TK Maxx earlier this week. I’m a sucker for coloured leather and just love the gold hardware and two-tone style. Plus, the little gold fox is adorable. With this beauty swinging from my arm, I can’t help but smile. What more could a girl possibly want from a new handbag?
What do you wear to lift your spirits when you’re feeling a bit blue?
