The Golden Hour

I said it in last's week's outfit post but I'll say it again: I just love Spring - the bright weather, the flowers and of course the fashion. But the thing I love most about this time of year is the bright evenings. Last week, my family and I headed out to a little coffee shop by the beach for some tea and cake. After a mountain of cake was consumed {insert pig emoji} I was lucky enough to witness the most beautiful golden sun just about to set and so of course I couldn't resist whipping the camera out to capture the stunning sight.

To embrace Spring I've been wearing my denim shirt from H&M which I got for my birthday last year. It has gorgeous embellishments on it which makes it stand out from your usual denim shirt. The material is also incredibly soft - I can tell it's gonna be a Spring staple! Denim is huge this season and there's one trend I'm particularly keen to try...... double denim. You either love it or hate it but it's a total winner in my books. Now all I have to do is find the courage to try the trend for myself (wish me luck!). But for now I decided to pair the shirt with my orange skinny jeans from Zara. Come March I always swap out my dark skinny jeans for a statement pair to inject some life and colour into my wardrobe after the dreary Winter months. 

I have a little confession to make; The only reason I wear hats is because I'm way too lazy to style my hair :p So, most of the time I just leave it in it's natural (read: unruly and frizzy) state, pop on a nice hat and hope for the best ;-) And that's exactly what I've done here with this cream fedora from Penneys.

What's your favourite thing about Spring? 
And what do you think of the double denim trend?

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Love,

  1. I really love this look! I agree the embellishments makes the denim stand out from the rest I've seen. I would have never thought about swapping out dark denim for color jeans starting March, but that is a fantastic idea! You have a wonderful style of writing. Very fun to read. I can't wait to read more! xo, Ellese from rockpaperglam.com

  2. I love the outfit! Especially the jeans. I'm not too sure how I would fair out with the double denim but I really think it should become a thing again! I agree with you about Spring, as we say here there's "a great stretch in the evenings now" and there's "fine drying in it". I'm getting so sick of our Irish, dreary weather. I need a bit of vitamin D!

    I thought I would let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award, you can read about it here: http://goo.gl/XBsZtt

    Looking forward to seeing future outfit posts, god knows I need some inspiration!

    1. I've been seeing the double denim trend creeping up a lot lately! But I'm definitely not brave enough to try it myself just yet ;-) I love hearing those phrases at this time of year! So funny! Completely agree about the weather! Hopefully we'll have a good summer *crosses fingers*

      Thanks a mil for reading Catherine :-) xx
