Pattern’s an easy theme for most I think this week, so I went for something a little different: These paisley pattern joggers are now the first item of paisley print anything I own! In what I hope is going to be one of the last few truly wintry outfits of this year, I’ve gone for a very rich palette of burgundy, black and grey – with a little hit of warm tones in the form of a camel fedora and taupe block heel loafers (LOVE this shape shoe – they’re so flattering and pretty comfortable thanks to the heel).
You might be amazed to know that this whole outfit (including shoes but excluding accessories) comes to a total of £66: Top marks, George at Asda!
I’ve been into my roll necks a lot this past winter, and I do like a roll neck layered under dresses or other tops like this burgundy asymmetrical tunic. The grey and burgundy look soooo nice together – I know they’re very autumnal colours and we’re approaching spring, but when it’s freezing outside it still makes sense.
I’VE BEEN INTO MY ROLL NECKS A LOT THIS PAST WINTER, AND I DO LIKE A ROLL NECK LAYERED UNDER DRESSES OR OTHER TOPS LIKE THIS BURGUNDY ASYMMETRICAL TUNIC.
A quick one from me today – I’ve been away at a blogging conference all weekend and I’m about to shoot off to London (train leaves in a couple of hours, eek): I’ve got myself tickets for the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery to celebrate British Vogue’s 100 year anniversary… Can’t wait. (Anyone been to see it already?)
So do add all your outfits – especially anything patterned – to this week’s iwillwearwhatilike link up!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
So link up all your fabulous outfits (or shoes, accessories, make-up, etc.) every Monday at 3pm UK time – it’ll stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
This is for linking up what you’ve been wearing (or would like to wear) only. I like to keep it all looking tidy because I’m a bit of a neat-freak, so non-outfit links will be removed – it’s only fair to others linking up!
THE OPTIONAL THEME FOR 7 MARCH IS VINTAGE
