Inspiration often strikes when you least expect it. Ed and I were travelling up north to see his folks for the weekend and we drove past a few gloriously yellow rapeseed fields. The vast expanse of yellow on a rare sunny day brought me great joy. As it happens, I was wearing another of my no-brainer dresses for the weekend, a bright neon yellow find from the H&M sale a few years ago. So I just had to get some impromtu outfit shots!
A good chunk of the UK turns yellow in Spring. A online search of satellite images is a testament to the vast yellowness of these fields. Rapeseed is the UK's answer to Olive oil and is a popular export commodity, both for consumption and for bio-diesel. Besides an increase in serotonin levels and a boost to the economy, rapeseed season is also accounatble for those pesky hayfever symptoms. So next time you decide to go prancing round the fields like me, check if you are allergic and make sure you've taken your antihistamines!
My very season appropriate outfit which is entirely sourced from previous H&M sales. I love H&M for their fashion-forward clothing at very reasonable prices. I always keep an eye out for their flash sales and end of season sales which often result in great bargains. My dress and earrings together cost me £6 but bring me unquantifiable amounts of pleasure.. That is what I call a bargain!
How are you making the most of Spring? And have you found some happy bargains recently? I'd love to hear. Ann x
