The hot and sunny weather is back after all the storms 🙂 Actually, these photos were taken just before I left for work about a week ago. It was one of those humid days when it’s cloudy one minute and blazing sunshine the next. I don’t like shooting in bright sunlight but I didn’t have time to wait for cloud cover.

I prefer to wear this striped trouser suit with red accents to bring out the red in the print

I’ve been wearing my trouser suits and co-ords a bit more lately; they look smart and are also practical for working in an air-conditioned building. I prefer to wear this striped trouser suit with red accents to bring out the red in the print. I’ve previously styled it with a casual T-shirt, but I think this Scotch & Soda blouse looks much better. I bought it from the-Bias-Cut.com last year and it’s still available in a medium on sale at half price here.

You can split the jacket and trousers up to create multiple outfits for different occasions

Trousers suits are a great addition to your wardrobe because they give you lots of options. You can split the jacket and trousers up to create multiple outfits for different occasions. Wearing the jacket with a T-shirt, jeans and trainers creates a stylish weekend look. You could pair the trousers with a chunky jumper and ankle boots in colder weather, or a camisole and heels for evening. Worn together though, a trouser suit in a bold print makes maximun impact.

I pulled out these red platform sandals to match the top and bag. They’re quite old but I haven’t worn them much. They’re even less comfortable now than they were the last time I wore tham about five years ago. That shows how much my feet have changed in that time. I was certainly paying for it the next day!

A problem with last week’s link up

There seems to have been a problem with last week’s link up as it isn’t showing on the post or in my InLinkz account, so apologies for that. WordPress continually kicks me off without saving which is making life very difficult! Jacqui has mentioned having the same problems so if you know what might be causing it please let me know! I’ve been a bit preoccupied this last week with one thing and another and I completely missed it the error. As a result, there aren’t any favourites 🙁 But, I’ve made sure the link up IS saved this week…and there’s also Sunday’s link up too!

  1. You had me with the red accessories! I think you look amazing in that stripped pattern. What a great work piece. To bad about the sandals. I know I have a couple of pairs like that; absolutely ❤️ but just not comfortable. Thank you for having the linkup. I always look forward to it when I finally get a post finished.

    I absolutely love suits and spent a great deal of my career life in them. This one is smashing!! I love it with the red top and accessories. SO cute, Emma! Sorry about the WP problems. I’ve had very few lately, so hoping that continues. But with tech, one never knows, Ugh.

    The suit is a real stunner Emma. And red is the perfect way to go. So vibrant! Jacqui (mummab) is blogger and you are WordPress so I would get in touch with Inlinkzs maybe? xx

  5. Michelle says:

    Lovely! And you’ve matched the red stripe perfectly with your top and accessories. Perfect!

    I’ve had a few troubles with WordPress too, but it’s been behaving better the last few days. I hope it stays that way!
