Lemon – colour of the season

Well it just so happens that two of my new season favourites are lemon.  And whilst I have styled them as separates (here and here), I honestly knew as soon as I unpackaged the Ganni knit* that it was going to be so perfect with this dress*.  I mean, if I fall for something I fall hard.  It was not so long ago that denim was my top pick and it was not unknown for me to wear denim shirts with jeans and sometimes denim jackets too.  If I love something, I really love it.  And, right now, I love lemon.

Lemon is pretty versatile, complimenting blondes and brunettes alike and pairing so well with tans and navy as well as brights and other pastels.  Basically, it is a great allrounder.

And this lemon twinset (or at least the closest to a twin set you will likely see me in any time soon) made the perfect base to show off my new baby – the Lion Landsdowne by Aspinal of London* – a very kind gift along with this new purse* which essentially answers all my purse dreams – small enough to fit in any of my bags (I just hate big purses which don’t fit in my clutches and smaller cross-bodies) but big enough to house all my plastic in card slots as well as notes and change.  I am happy.

Not that you asked but this shoot happened on one of those days when everything just comes together.  You know the ones?  Those days are rare.  I managed to get myself and Hunter organised in time to get up to town for a quick impromptu shoot with the husband and a little family lunch at The Finnieston.  The sun even made an appearance.  On days like that you just feel like you’re winning at life you know?

Not to worry though, balance was restored shortly after with my tyre blowing out on the dual carriageway and two hours spent by the side of the road with a hungry, bored baby…  What is the written equivalent of the emoji lady with her palms facing upwards?  Maybe ‘meh’?  Yeah?  Well, that.
