I thought it the ideal opportunity to break out some of the gorgeous new season pieces Joules kindly sent me recently.
In Belfast, we don't often get great weather and when we do, we take it with a big pinch of salt. I know from experience to dress for eventualities rather than potentials so I opted for the Foxton Quilted Jacket. I love the country-heritage style of the jacket and it's the ideal Spring piece for those inevitable April showers.
I paired my jacket with the Lyndhstck Tartan shirt. I have said before how much I love tartan and this bold, Madras-style check is bright and fresh. To pull the colours together I slung my Cambridge satchel over my shoulder and trotted through the sunny, cobbled streets of Belfast's Cathedral Quarter.

Belfast got its first Joules store just before Christmas last year and I'm delighted to see it doing so well in the city. I think the affordable mix of country-prep has a wide appeal - it's easy and unfussy without being too casual.
Here's to a Summer full of sunshine so I can get plenty of wear out of my new gear!
