I’m back at my mum’s because she’s out of hospital…just in time for her birthday tomorrow! I hastily stuffed some clothes into a case and drove down last night. As I hadn’t shot any outfit photos for today over the weekend I grabbed a variety of brightly-coloured pieces and hoped for the best! This wasn’t the outfit that I’d had in mind though. When I unpacked I realised I’d forgotten the blouse I meant to bring. So, this lime green and leopard print ensemble was my back up plan.
I bought this Zara suit in the summer sale this year. Although I’ve worn it for work, this is its first appearance on the blog. I love the vibrant, zesty hue and androgynous style. Because I hadn’t really planned my outfit I didn’t have much choice in the way of tops, bags and footwear. Luckily, these gold trainers go with most outfits though. However, I didn’t have a matching bag. Then I remembered that I’d left some bags in my room at mum’s, and after a rummage I found this gold clutch. It’s not the most suitable style for a daytime look, but if I wanted to switch the trainers for gold sandals and the T-shirt for a camisole I think this suit and gold clutch would make a great pairing for evening.
I’ve been looking for a faux leather gold crossbody bag for a while now. It’s one of those items I often wish I had when putting outfits together. Metallics are neutrals that are a little bit extra in my eyes, and they can solve many a styling dilemma. Another way to wear this lime green suit would be with a contrasting bright colour, such as hot pink (like my nail polish). This suit was also available in bright pink and I ordered the trousers at the same time but they were a totally different fit to the green. They came up much bigger unfortunately, so I sent them back. Zara sizing baffles me.
