Catherine, Queen of Clash

Yay it’s just about the weekend!!!

Just have to quickly mention: I’m on the Asos Fashion Finder homepage this week! I’m this week’s Spotlight choice (“an inspiring individual with noteworthy style”) – click here to read my interview. I was SO flattered to be asked, it’s made my year! Already! To quote: With a wardrobe brimming full of day-glow brights, checks and florals, and her fearless yet fun-lovin’ approach to fashion, we’ve dubbed… Catherine, queen of clash“. Get me 😉

So to my outfit: I’m quite surprised I haven’t worn this blouse and these trousers together before: they look like they were made for each other. The blouse was one of my eBay successes from the summer – see it worn in another crazy pattern mixer here. As it’s sheer I thought it wouldn’t be suitable for winter, but add a long-sleeved tee and, well, Bob’s your uncle as Mr. Summers would say.

Have a FABULOUS weekend, whatever you’re doing; I’ll be off being extra fun-lovin’ and fearless 🙂
