Bright Orange Trouser Suit + Style With a Smile Link Up

December 14, 2023

December is whizzing by and so is this week…I’m a day late posting again! This week hasn’t got off to a great start; Monday was about as Mondayish as a Monday could be: awful weather, horrendous traffic and lots of boring life admin. Adulting is hard sometimes isn’t it? Oh to be a cat. Anyway, there was a break in the rain during my lunch break so I persuaded Pete to take some photos before he headed home after his early shift.

I bought this bright orange trouser suit on sale back in the summer but this is its first outing

Wearing bright colours is even more important to me when the weather is miserable and it gets dark before 4pm. So of course, turning to my happy colour was the obvious choice. I have other orange jackets and trousers but none that actually match, so obviously I had to remedy that! I bought this bright orange trouser suit on sale back in the summer but this is its first outing. It’s really good quality and feels great to wear.

For maximum dopamine dressing, I teamed it with this tropical bird print blouse that I bought on Vinted. (I’m addicted to that app!) The mix of bright orange and the busy print is quite a lot so I added my navy bag and statement ring to pick out the blue in the blouse. The orange trainers give a leg lengthening effect (as well as being comfortable) which is always welcome!

I’m off to Nottingham on Friday to see The Darkness. They’re playing at Rock City – my old haunt from many years ago. It will be Isobel’s first proper gig so I’m hoping she enjoys it (she’d rather it was Metallica, but their tickets cost about ten times more!) It will be weird to go back to the place I spent so many nights slightly worse for wear headbanging the night away – especially with my teenage daughter! We’ll visit the Christmas market on Saturday before heading home. And then we’ll be into the week before Christmas..eek! I still haven’t bought any presents other than Isobel’s! I’m just not feeling it this year…I’ll be happy with some quiet time at home and a good book.

Have you got any plans for the weekend?

    Such a perfect combo, like the Nancy with orange a new one for me. Thanks for hosting the linkup too! Jacqui.

  6. What a beautiful suit – it looks perfect with the trainers and blouse. so great finding something like this in the sale. Yes, guilty of being addicted to Vinted, I would say I check most days what is on offer, both fashion and beauty, on there and eBay, and I love to haggle too. Thank you for hosting Emma, much appreciated.
