Magpie Girl

I love piling on accessories, and maybe I went a bit overboard with this outfit… no matter, I guess I’m just a magpie at heart. The Mimco necklace was a total bargain in the sale at House of Fraser last year, and this is the first time I’ve teamed it with my sparkly blue scarf – it’s like they were made for each other!

One of the things I love about the season changing is getting to pull out the clothes put away for the previous season and rediscovering clothes you’d forgotten about. Imagine my joy when I found my wool peg-leg trousers again, bought in the spring sales and worn only a couple of times first time around. I wore them the other week in this post but only the top part was visible – here they are in all their glory and I love them with the black wedges. Ain’t autumn great?!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend x

    Catherine, you have the most interesting, beautiful face. Love your hair color too. I am sitting here with red dye all over my head checking blogs. Have a great weekend darling. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

    I love this color combo and all your accessories. I just read somewhere that you should not wear a scarf and a necklace and my thought was "why not?"
    I love how your scarf and necklace look together.
    I have a velvet blazer in a similar color but sadly no purple pants to wear with it.
