Statement Sleeves, Silver Boots & Patterned Trousers, over 40.

Oversized Topshop Jumper with Statement sleeves, patterned trousers and silver boots | Fake fabulous - style over 40.

It's getting to that time of year (in Scotland at least) when we are a little fed up of winter layers and dark, dreich mornings.
The sky is getting lighter (at both ends of the day) and there is a glimmer of hope.

Hope for a beautiful spring.
Hope for a warm summer.
Hope for a generally great year.

Unfortunately, the warm summer part never usually comes to much (it's almost always a bit cool and wet) but we are eternally optimistic.

{I even bought a sundress in eager anticipation...
Luckily it can be layered up with thermals and a cardigan!}

So, today I was looking forward to spring, and despite the damp chill in the air, I braved my ankles to the elements.

{Well, not really... I am wearing a sheepskin insole and nude tights. Cheat!}

This softly coloured jumper (with it's whimsical sleeves) made me think of warmer days, and these silver boots are bold, bright and full of optimism.

This whole outfit "fell into my basket" on my way to an appointment in Glasgow.
I had to walk past Topshop and (with five minutes to spare) could not resist a rummage.
Hmmmm....
I was supposed to be saving a few quid but these offers were too good to resist.
(The boots were only £4.50)

AND, I know these items will get a lot of wear over the next few months.
PLUS, the trousers are a classic cut and a timeless design.

{I always have a (very) long list of excuses at the ready!}

Does this time of year make you dream of fine spring weather and warm summer days?
Or, do you hope for a break in the heat and some refreshing rain?

  3. fab boots, and they're even better for that price!, and I'm also in love with your blue sweater sleeves and cute pants. Love that really cool print on a classic cut!
    It feels a little bit spring-like here, a beautiful illusion!. I usually run into sundresses and summery prints everytime I see them, even if it's a long time until springtime. Not very sensible, indeed!

  4. Great outfit. Feminine, fun, warm, light, modern etc etc. What's not to like? I am amazed you got all that in 5 minutes. I know I am quick but I can do one thing in 5 minutes, not 3. And that necklace is so good in repeating the pattern of the trousers. Which you have obviously spotted yourself. Great boots. I am going to hunt them down.

  6. We're all so ready for a bit of spring that it doesn't take much for us to dress in anticipation of the event eh Sam? You look adorable as ever! I love that colour of blue on you and those sleeves are fab. It's such a fun look thanks to not just the patterned trousers, but mainly those sensational boots - how lucky are you girl? Thank goodness I don't live near shops as I'd be broke all the time.
