Dorothy Perkins polka dot top Oasis red trousers Happy Sunday everyone! It’s been a busy week for me…so busy that I didn’t get chance to post any outfits as I’ve been working all week and getting home late.  This red and navy combination is one of my favourite work outfits as the top is nice and cool (the office gets very hot) and I can just slip the jacket on when I go out at lunchtime. The top (an old one from Dorothy Perkins) has a co-ordinating belt that ties at the back, so I can loosen it if I indulge in a big lunch!

Thanks for reading, I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Oak leather top and Oasis red trousers

Stylist magazine recently ran a competition with Ford Fiesta to find a budding fashion stylist – entry was simple: put together an outfit including something red and upload it to Instagram with #FiestaStylista in the image caption. Well as red is my favourite colour I had to give it a shot. I decided to go way out of my comfort zone with a leather and suede top from Oak which I bought recently in the Outnet sale. I have to admit, it’s not the easiest item of clothing to style – it’s a batwing style so can look quite bulky, particularly in leather and suede. I will probably get the most use out of it by wearing it as an alternative to a jacket with a vest top underneath beacause it’s quite warm. I paired the top with some red trousers from Oasis, which I’ve had for a couple of years. I added a couple of red accents with my Angel Jackson bag and an enamel ring. A pair of black killer heels by Aperlai finished the look off.
