I wanted to share a couple of items that are bringing much joy into my wardrobe. First up is this gorgeous Orla Kiely backpack that my wonderful girls bought me for my birthday. It's just awesome and means I'm not tempted to use the black leather bag Gray bought all the time and can keep it for special. It's a really nice size and I love the easy access front pocket to keep my phone in. No matter how small a bag I get if my phone goes in the main pouch I can never bloody find it when I need it. It's also wipe clean vinyl which was really handy when I spilt my coffee over it in a rush to get in the car the other morning!
Yellow is my happy colour. It's hard to stay in a grump when you're wearing sunshine so I decided I needed this yellow waterproof jacket from Joules to see me through the Spring showers. It is part of their right as rain collection which is 100% waterproof, I can vouch for that - I've been caught in a few too many showers wearing my other Joules waterproof. I've worn it a few times so far bit it is still a bit too chilly to switch to a jacket so I have mostly worn it in the day. Not been rained on since I got it, maybe it's also my lucky charm?! I'm also wearing the dress I shared on Monday with my favourite Clarks x Orla boots and a pair of grey tights. I have been wearing grey tights quite a bit recently, I bought a pair of pin spot ones just after Christmas and it kinda escalated from there. I'm actually wearing the pin spot ones in these photos but you can't really tell. It's been quite hard finding grey tights, maybe they remind too many people of school tights as I can find loads of them!
