What Emmeline Wore In October - Day 6

I'm a fan of the mustard yellow and black combo in my outfits. Sure, maybe I look a bit like a bee - but bees are awesome and I'm confident enough to wear what I want. 

I wore a similar outfit (with the yellow tights) to teach an illustration workshop to some school students once, and I'll always remember when one kid turned to me and said "Miss, I really love your outfit, it's great how it just doesn't match at all." I think it was a compliment, or at the very least I'll take it as one. My boyfriend actually has a pair of yellow trousers in a similar shade, so we have to be very careful not to wear them both on the same day, as the chance of us looking like some kind of banana-legged team comes in at around 95%.

Now, I know dungarees have been causing a bit of a divide recently, but I for one am on board with them. I got this little pinafore from F&F after I left my favourite pair of jeans in Cornwall and realised I needed some kind of dark denim to keep me going. I'm not going to lie, it may well crop up again in this project, as it's just pretty much the best - pockets: yes, comfy: yes, ability to switch tops and wear it endlessly with different looks: oh yes.

I'll admit I slightly regretted the bright-legs as today we put into action a devious surprise-plan where stealth was key. Andrew's sister has been living in Australia for ten months, and today she came home two months early, without anyone but Andrew and I knowing. We sneakily lured her mum home expecting to head out on a shopping trip with me, and jumped out from an actual hedge to surprise her! Lots of tears, lots of hugs and a lot of confused faces. You might spot a video of it at some point!
