Office Chevron Chic

Another day, another outfit at the office… I decided to dig out the brights again after getting all pastelled up in my last post.

I’m really loving this colour combo (pink pleats, purple zig-zags and pale blue gingham) but the star for me is my new patent Jasper Conran bag – it’s so big I can carry everything and the kitchen sink in it. You just can’t beat a mahoosive bag that’ll practically double as a raincoat, sleeping bag or whatever (perfect for work).

By the way, thank you everyone for such wonderful, wonderful comments recently – I am quite overwhelmed by how many of you are saying such lovely kind words! I appreciate all the regular readers who leave me lovely comments, plus a big ‘Welcome’ to all the new followers I have recently gained. And if you’ve followed for a while but never commented before – please don’t be shy, say hello and let me know who you are!!

Wishing everyone a Happy Wednesday!

    you have such a fabulous style Catherine, I really enjoy seeing how you put your pieces together to create such a unique style. That zig zag pattern is so Missoni inspired. Looks perfect with a red skirt. Great layering too!

      I have to admit I did buy the sweater because it looked so Missoni, Mongs ;)) Thanks sweetie! Catherine x
