Oriental/Geometric Pattern Mixing (& A New Hairdo)

Pattern mixing and denim

I haven’t done any pattern mixing for a while, have I?

So what better way to redress that balance than by mixing two of my favourite pieces, which I’ve discovered work beautifully together due to their shared colour palette.  I simply adore this combination…!

So although my last post featured my new ‘do, I didn’t really mention it – it may not be super obvious but I had several inches taken off… thanks to everyone who left a comment on Instagram when I couldn’t decide whether to chop or not! Already I’m loving it this length (so much easier to brush and wash), plus I have the flame red colour back – happy all round 🙂

Hope everyone has a not-too hectic last weekend before Christmas – come back Sunday for a round-up of my pick of my Autumn outfits, wontcha…?

    I love your new hair! Sometimes just chopping off a few inches can make a huge difference. I love that blazer!! The print is fabulous and it looks really cool with your top! Have a great weekend! <3

    Love the hair. i'm debating the chop too, and even though i know it will still appear long to most i know i will really notice the change…
    Anyway, this outfit is amazing! I love how your wardrobe seems to interconnect outfits, its like every piece works so well with each other! This is so perfect! i seriously love it! xxx

    Excellent mix of patterns- works really well! Love those boots too, I did look at them online, but I'm thinking my calves are a little chunky for 'em (so sad!).
