P.S. I thought I’d mention: the collar of my shirt was turned up and pinned from behind to form a high turtle neck style top… it showed off the necklace so much better and is a great way to get a new look out of a collared shirt. It also looks a little like a neck scarf which I love!

      Seriously – where are they from? I might have to treat myself.

      Hi Anon (please put at least a first name or pseudonym, it's nice to address you by name!) – I list where all my items are from at the end of the post, (it says these are from River Island). If what I'm wearing is still available to buy, i.e. current, there'll be a thumbnail to click on to buy them… unfortunately the shoes are AW 2011 – sorry! They are my faves too :))

    So in love with this look. Never would have thought of this color combo. And so, so in love with those shoes!

    i am loving that sweater, everything about it and those shoes…they are fabulous

    Fabulous shoes! Love them so much.

    Nope, not my cup of tea this time. The collar so close to your face, combined with the long length of the skirt and the swearter tucked in… No, not me. But this is rare as I normally think your outfits are out-of-this-world-nice.

    LOVE this outfit – the colors are FANTASTIC! And the red sphere necklace is LOVELY!

    Amazing colour combination, offset by those spectacular shoes – gorgeous, you! xo

    These colors are so rich and vibrant. You look gorgeous, especially in that last photo!

  16. 30 October 2012 / 12:10 am

    I adore these colors! The tobacco is so rich, and that skirt just has so much movement. And I will have to keep that collar trick in mind. I love creative little styling ideas like that. Thanks, Catherine!!! ~Sarah

    It's always a visual treat to visit your blog and every time my jaw drops and just wanna put on the same thing you're wearing. 😀 Love love love the colours!

  18. 29 October 2012 / 9:27 pm

    This is look is amazing Catherine! I love how striking that skirt is, the colour is gorgeous and I love how it looks with the other colours within the look. Turning up the collar of your shirt is genius, a great way to get the most out of a piece. You have such an eye for attention to detail, it's inspiring and I love how the Colours, textures, proportions and accessories are always styled to perfection. 🙂

    Take care,

    I'm in love with this look. Those shoes are especially amazing. =)

  20. 29 October 2012 / 4:24 pm

    Fantastic autumn colours again! I love how the incredible shoes echo the necklace with the white stitching.

    Tobacco is such a gorgeous colour, it deserves to be seen more often, and even extra lovely with the magenta skirt!

  21. 29 October 2012 / 3:41 pm

    Beautiful color combinations and outfit!! Looks like a great giveaway, too.

  22. 29 October 2012 / 3:34 pm

    I love, love, love you in that skirt. Well, in any skirt, lol but the clashing of colours is so perfect, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  23. 29 October 2012 / 2:58 pm

    The colors are amazing together. As I scrolled down, I was also delighted by the shoes etc. Great, great outfit!!
