Tequila Sunrise

This afternoon at that time right after lunch when the North wind howls down the school corridors as the doors are opened to re-admit the red-cheeked, squabbling children, my colleague Tara swished past me as I perched on my plastic chair with my ginormous orangey-red llama-wool scarf tucked around my yellow frock and orange tights, and as she swished past, she remarked;

"Oh Elizabeth!  You look like a Tequila Sunrise!"

I thought this was amusing enough to make a Facebook status out of, and when I did so my little sister commented with a plea for a Boring Outfit Post, but I hadn't taken any snaps as it's too blooming dark both before and after work these days.

However, I did have a (dark and crappy, jazzed up with Picmonkey) photograph of a very similar outfit from one futile attempt to take Boring Outfit Pics last week.  So here it be, plus the same dress in its various other seasonal appearences!

Autumnal brights in gloomy November.

Very colourful last October, with my equally bright little sibling!
Posing with some superimposed butterflies in the Spring.
And finally - jingle those bells, it's Christmas time!
Hope you enjoyed my mustardy montage (and were not too irritated by my OCD-unfriendly lack of picture-size uniformality!)


  1. I love all your bright colours. I like the spotty scarf in the second pic. Is that street in Newcastle? It looks very familiar.

    Thanks so much for the insight on my new charity shopped pic. I've just googled Helen Bradley. Her pics are so cute xx

  2. What a fantastic, vibrant outfit! Those colours look really beautiful on you. Mustard yellow was my colour of the season during the past fall. Though I don't own much of it (and the local thrift stores were not forthcoming with more at all!), I simply couldn't get enough of this warm autumnal hue and am still head-over-heels in love with it. As fall wound down, I found a cute 80s does 50s plaid dress with a lot of mustard in it (on etsy) and have been practically living in it since, so clearly my crush on this hue is sticking around through the winter months.

    *PS* Thank you very much for your wonderfully kind comment on my post about hair loss, I sincerely appreciate it.

  3. Cute mustard dress, love the butterfly brooch.
