what mama wore - green and yellow

^^ I was too lazy to think of a sentence to use in my necklace, I actually quite like it like this!^^

What Mama Wore

Dress - Yumi*
Necklace - Monsoon*
Boots - Sun Jellies

Did I tell you yellow is fast becoming one of my favourite colours? Well it is, it's so perfect for SPRING! Hurrah, Spring has finally arrived and I think everyones souls just feel that bit lighter with a little bit of sunshine. Whilst this will actually be my third pair of wellies I figure, one black, one neutral and one with a pop of colour it sort of the essential trio right? Well that's what I'm telling myself ;)

I did a bit of spring cleaning the other day and took so many clothes I've been holding on to for 'maybe one day I'll wear this' to the charity shop which I felt gave me the good karma to treat myself a little. The necklace I discovered over on my friend Vicky's blog, it's from Monsoon who have the cutest jewellery range at the moment, I went in with Wilf the other day and picked up some new socks too (Wilf chose them). My dress was due to a little splurge over on the yumi website and these wellies sort of fell into my bag when I was browsing the Sun Jellies site (more on that soon).

I'm not too sure about my haircut anymore, it's a bit too choppy and layered for me, and I'm kind of paranoid about having thin hair on the best of days (thanks motherhood). I'm thinking of growing it out a little then cutting it back into a straight bob. Is it just me who is never really happy with their hair?

that dress looks lovely on you, and that necklace is adorable! i agree with you on the hair ..i'm rarely happy with mine either. it's SO fine, and often looks really flat. even if i backcomb it, it falls flat in no time!

Love the dress Fritha, may have just purchased a few from Yumi myself! Love yellow too but looks ick on me, great on you though.

Hannah Budding Smiles said...

Love this look! Hopefully next spring I'll be able to fit into pretty clothes again!xx

Fiona Peacock said...

I like your hair. I am never happy with my hair, apart from on the day I get it cut, after that it is too much hassle again. Luckily I'm getting it cut tomorrow, so I'm hoping for a good hair day ;)

Julia Bradbury said...

WOW I love seeing you wearing your yellow Wellies you look adorable.

That dress is awesome! And I've been wearing yellow much more lately after this gloomy winter, definitely picks up your mood .

I like your hair! I am about to shave my head b/c I'm growing it out from a pixie cut. I look like a character from Three's Company.

What a fun outfit! Love the dress - was thinking maybe it was a Boden. Stretchy fabric, short to show some leg, and pockets - its a winner! I used to have a pair of orange wellies with pink and white polka dots. I owned a pet sitting business and figured I wanted something that would make me happy if I was wearing them so much. Now I'm shopping for a pair for my little babe - think I found a good pair finally - in pink or purple so people know my little babe is a little babe!

beautiful dress. I love your hair! But I'm the same... just cut my fringe and an inch or two off the length a couple of weeks ago and I hate it :( wishing I'd left it as it was!! I'm so indecisive....

abigail said...

Love the wellies and dress combo and in upside down daffodil colours too. It definitely feels like Spring is here now :-)

Katherine said...

I think your hair looks great! And I like the Make Your Own sentiment so if I had that necklace I think I'd just leave it like that.

Lottie :: Oyster & Pearl said...

The green is lovely! I'm quite into yellow, too, and bought myself a yellow cardie today x

Kirsty Phillipson-Lowe said...

I love that dress it is so pretty and looks like it can be dressed up or as a casual dress. Got to admit to being obsessed with my lilac Hunter wellies but I really like the yellow ones too x

Laura Rocksteady said...

I really love this dress - it's a perfect shade of green. I totally agree about yellow - I have a yellow pair of Boden wellies which actually need to be replaced but I cannot let them go. Love this whole outfit :)
