Brightening Up A Rainy Day With Rainbows


(Jeans – Exact, Cardigan – Exact, Wellies – Exact, Umbrella – Exact, Bracelets – Exact)

Unfortunately at the moment I have flu, or a really really bad cold. I feel terrible and have barely slept for two days due to aching all over, congestion and a pounding head. I haven’t been sick like this for almost two years though, so I was doing pretty well, but since every single person I know, in person and online, has had this illness or currently do have it, I think it was pretty unavoidable. I just hope it goes away really soon, it’s driving me crazy. Have any of you come down with it too? Luckily I took this outfit over the weekend as I’m not able to take any now. It was raining, as it seems to be every single day, but I thought I would go against the odds and really brighten up such a miserable and wet day. You probably recognise this umbrella from my banner, but I thought I would showcase it properly in an outfit post as it’s one of my favourite ones. It’s so bright and pretty. I put the link of where you can buy it too, as I actually purchased it from China on eBay surprisingly.

For my outfit, I chose to wear my trusty James Jeans Couture Jeans in Vesper as I absolutely adore these! They are my favourite dark blue jeans that I own. I couldn’t be without them! I paired the jeans with my Hunter Original Tall Wellies in Navy Gloss since it was pouring with rain, I didn’t want to get my feet wet. I’m really glad that I went with navy though as it can be worn with almost all of my jeans, which is great! I then wore my new H&M dark purple cardigan which I got a couple of weeks ago, just to add some more depth and richness to the outfit. I love H&M cardigans as they are so cheap and come in so many colours! If you are wondering about the white tank top underneath, it’s one of my staples, also from H&M. Now for my accessories, I piled on some of my new bracelets from Amadoria, these are from their new Talya collection which they sent to me and are so pretty! This set also comes with a pink bracelet, but it didn’t match the rest of the outfit, so I didn’t wear it. Finally, the ring, it’s a beautiful red crystal poppy ring which I got sent from Jon Richard and it’s designed specifically for the Poppy Appeal, with some proceeds going to the charity. It’s not yet available to buy, but as soon as it is I will tell you more about it! I was also wearing my little black mouse ring from ASOS, but as I was getting annoyed in the rain, I forgot to take photos of it. Sorry! What do you think of my outfit? Comment and let me know! It’s back to resting for me.

P.S – Don’t forget there is 25% off at Shopbop in the Friends & Family Sale! Final day today!

    I hope you feel better soon! I know how you feel, I’ve been sick for a couple of months now and I’ve had two different antibiotics already. I love your umbrella!
