After a lovely few days in Madeira I’ve come down to earth with a bump. The rain has barely stopped all day. I was poised with my camera and tripod waiting for a break in the showers to get these photos. (And since the clocks went back an hour at the weekend it now gets dark early!). The bottom of my trousers got all muddy, so they had to go straight in the wash! To top it off I had to spend the best part of the evening hanging around a dry ski slope while Isobel had a lesson (she’s going to Italy on a school trip next year).
I am holding on to the Madeira memories though with this jacket that I bought there. On our last day I stumbled upon a fabulous little shop with the most gorgeous, colour pieces, including this jacket. (This wasn’t the only thing I bought there, but I will save my other purchases for another day). This eye print faux suede jacket is an ideal cover up for when it’s not cold enough for a coat. It’s soft enough to wear indoors instead of a cardigan too. The faux suede fabric feels lovely and doesn’t crease either. It was available in a few other prints too but I was really drawn to this one.
I picked out the main colours of the print with my green trousers and purple high neck top. The hat was a last minute addition due to the rain! As the reverse of the jacket is a camel shade, I turned the sleeves back to show it to match the fedora. It makes the hat look more planned than it was! I deliberated over whether to use my green or purple bag, but went with purple to balance out the colours. I added a fun necklace to break up the high neck top, and gold rings and earrings to mirror the gold buttons on my trousers. Not my favourite photo shoot but I got there in the end!
