Welcome to the first Style Not Age collaboration of 2020! This month it was Anna’s turn to set the theme and she came up with the brilliant idea of ‘Jewel Brights’. You probably know how much I LOVE wearing brights colours, so I was very happy with this theme. Thankfully we have sunshine today because my plans to take these photos yesterday were scuppered by persistent rain. Better late than never though, right?
Finding a starting point for the outfit was the key to putting this look together. With so much colour in my wardrobe I was spoilt for choice when it came to styling glorious jewel brights. But my thoughts kept returning to this emerald green trench coat that I bought on eBay last year. Despite being from a budget label it’s really good quality. The last time I wore it on the blog I teamed it with this same green blouse and lilac trousers.
I decided to double up on the jewel tones with these amethyst-hued trousers. To keep the outfit to two colours (with the exception of the fuchsia pink on the shoes) I dug out my really old purple bag. I bought it years ago in Sorrento and it used to be one of my main work bags but I don’t use it so much these days. It’s always good to rediscover something in your wardrobe – it’s like buying it all over again without the expense!
