Hello, I hope you all had a great weekend! Isobel has gone back to school today for the first time since lockdown began in March. Being alone in the house feels a little bit weird! It will give her the opportunity to see her friends before they go off to different high schools. It’s hard to believe she’s almost finished primary school!
It was Anna’s turn to set June’s Style Not Age theme, and she chose “Check Me Out!”. That gave me the perfect opportunity to wear my new houndstooth trousers from Zara. I was initially planning to team them with my Scotch & Soda red blouse (featured last week) and Pom Amsterdam bugs jacket. But then I tried this yellow top with them and thought it looked more appropriate for Summer. I love to add a hit of colour when I’m wearing mainly black and white, just to break it up.
That prompted me to reconsider the black jacket, and I remembered that I’d bought this houndstooth jacket from eBay a few months ago. It’s a nice soft jersey, so ideal for Summer. It’s not the exact same houndstooth print as the trousers but it’s not far off. You can only tell close up that the white of the trousers is a little bit brighter. The fabric is different too, it’s a kind of tweed texture. I wouldn’t want to wear them on a very hot day, but we seem to be getting a real mixture of weather lately. In Winter I’ll wear them with long boots and a thicker jacket or coat.
I added the polka dot bag for a fun pattern play on the black and white theme. Apart from the top, the only other pop of colour is the yellow bangle.
