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!

    Love the chevron and I'm liking the pink and purple together on you! Nothing beats a great, multi-purpose, massive bag!

    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!
