Manic Monday: Scarf and Wellies





Scarf: H&M (learn how I tied this here) | Top: Express (option) | Bag: Gucci (Budget option here) | Jeans: Express (similar) | Wellies: Hunter

Mix it Monday: See the last time I wore these same pieces.
Scarf: Left | Jeans: Middle and Right

Well, hello and welcome to our first ever Manic Monday! OK, so all Mondays are manic, but this is the first time that On the Daily Express and I are hosting this link-up! Hope you find some inspiration and make new friends!

As you can see from these photos, I was actually able to walk outside without a jacket this weekend. Granted, it was in the 50s, which I know is still cold for most, but after last week, it felt like heaven. And no, I know what you're thinking - I do not walk around in wellies in dry, sunny weather. The last of the snow is still melting, and depending on where you are, it's still a sloshy mess. Not that I don't love these red beauties, because I certainly do, and  I could not miss my opportunity to properly photograph them for the blog. They're like candy and this scarf was the perfect finishing piece to this look. A simple outfit to ease into the work week!

  1. Your top is from Express?!? WHEN? I think that is the one I commented on when you sent the pic of the Stella Destroyed jean leggings, no? I love it. And once again, SUPER cool photo backgrounds. And your purse....OOH LA LA!! Thanks for being a friend and fabulous co-host!

    1. I have a pair of black ones with white polka dots. I love them and they make me so happy, but I couldn't wear them with "brown" type outfits. Red will solve that problem! I was debating on this red or a burgundy or the purple! They're all really fun, even if you do decide to do black!

  21. Obsessed with your accessories! The red hunter's and red bag are so chic! And the scarf is perfection too. I love it so much more than zara's version ;)
