Half suited, not booted, yellow tartaned

Tartan cape: ASOS (on sale), Blazer: Next (part of suit) similar, Chinos: La Redoute, Sweater: F+F, Socks: Topshop, Wedges: ASOS

Belt: ASOS, Watch: Gift (old), Silver bracelet: My christening bracelet, Black rings: Lulworth Cove giftshop, Rose ring: New Look, Top finger rings: ASOS, Blue bracelets: Debenhams / New Look

Necklace: Topshop (old but I still really love it: owls and bows and lightning?!)

I'm sure the word "tartaned" of the post's title isn't really a word, and I've probably spelt it wrong. Not to worry - I guess you can't really spell a word wrong if you're the one making it up ;)

So this was quite a straightforward work outfit - this is about as corporate as I go for the office. I simply threw on some fun socks and kept the cape handy for when the office gets cold (hurry up springtime...!). Though I'm not so happy about the socks/shoes/trouser hemline thing going on now I've seen the photo. Another one I've learned from the photo, not the mirror: with these chinos don't wear socks and heels. Would have looked better I think with socks and brogues, or heels and no socks. And the cape was a bit creased for the photo, but it came home with me in my bag, oops.

All of this sounds a bit negative for me, doesn't it - I'm so sorry! Perhaps an online thread I read about my blog (the negativity of which highly amused me) has inadvertently rubbed off a little... No need for any of you lovely people to comment about that here - I should have one of my Musings written for my next post all about it - you can read it then and chuckle along with me :D

Happy weekend everyone!



  1. You had me at 'yellow tartaned' whether tartaned is a word or not. This is just a fabulous outfit. All the colors and textures are just perfect together.

  2. Your orange/coral colored brogues might have worked!
