I do hope you're all having a marvellous weekend!! It's always over far too quickly, isn't it..?

I wore this to work a little while ago when the weather was still messing us about, i.e. it teased us with some hot days, then got chilly again just as we were getting used to the heat. But it did at least give me an excuse to wear this lovely light blazer I picked up for next-to-nothing in the sale at River Island - I just ADORE the two colours in the stripes together! So yes I'm wearing pink again, and there's yet more pink in the scarf - my first piece in an ikat print (bit late to the party, me).

Did I tell you how much I love the colours in the blazer??? I love them, I do. LOVE them.



Blazer: River Island (sale, sadly sold out), Snood: ASOS, T-shirt: Topshop, Jeans: Levis (old), Heels; John Rocha at Debenhams, Sunglasses: Red Herring at Debenhams, Rings: ASOS*, Bracelets: Debenhams / ASOS / Urban Outfitters / Tesco, Watch: ASOS, Nails: Revlon Elegant 380* / Models Own Nail Art Pens*

Shop my look! Items marked* are the actual item if they're still available

  4. Oh this looks amazing Catherine! I love your striped blazer, I really wanted to get my hands on the t-shirt/dress version they sold to. Love how you teamed it with the polka dot top and ikat print scarf, the jeans neutralise and add a certain casual twist! :)

    Take care,

  7. Wonderful mix of patterns + vivid riot of bracelets - such a joyful look, yet grounded by the neutral pumps which pick up the stripe in the blazer. Nicely done!

  19. Hi Catherine,
    New on your blog which I enjoy very much. This mix of pattern is different from what we usually see in the street and I have to say that I love it. It flows. The pink and blue colors are a perfect link. And the scarf... to die for (I am scarf addicted). Thank you for sharing this inspirational look :-)
    Happy to be one of your new followers. I will also add you on my favorite blog list.
    All the best from Florida :-)
