Oriental/Geometric Pattern Mixing (& A New Hairdo)

I haven't done any pattern mixing for a while, have I? So what better way to redress that balance than by mixing two of my favourite pieces, which I've discovered work beautifully together due to their shared colour palette.  I simply adore this combination...!

So although my last post featured my new 'do, I didn't really mention it - it may not be super obvious but I had several inches taken off... thanks to everyone who left a comment on Instagram when I couldn't decide whether to chop or not! Already I'm loving it this length (so much easier to brush and wash), plus I have the flame red colour back - happy all round :)

Hope everyone has a not-too hectic last weekend before Christmas - come back Sunday for a round up of my pick of my Autumn outfits, wontcha...?

  5. Excellent mix of patterns- works really well! Love those boots too, I did look at them online, but I'm thinking my calves are a little chunky for 'em (so sad!).
