How’s your weekend going? We’re currently waiting for storm Ciara to arrive – it’s already getting windy. Sunday’s weather forecast looks dreadful so I’ll be staying indoors. Luckily I’ve been able to get a few sets of outfit photos done later in the day now the nights are drawing out.
I don’t usually post on a Saturday but my blog schedule has gone awry lately; the Sunday Reflections link up fell by the wayside due to the other commitments I have. Sometimes it falls that I have Style Not Age on Monday, my regular Style With a Smile link up on Tuesday and Match Made in Seven on the Wednesday. So posting on a Sunday would make it four consecutive days of posting, which is too much for me…and probably you too! So I’ve decided to make the Sunday Reflections link up monthly rather than weekly. It will probably be the third Sunday of the month as I participate in the Stylish Monday link up on the second week of the month.
Anyway, onto today’s outfit. Despite the recent brighter weather I’m still craving colourful outfit combinations. I stalked this Monki turquoise jaguar jumper on eBay for ages. I’d seen it on a couple of other people at work but unfortunately it was sold out. In these situations eBay is the place to go! It took a while but I finally got my hands on one.
The last time I wore this jumper I teamed it with a purple skirt and pink beret and bag. While I was reorganising my clothes I just happened to notice that the jaguar motif is the same shade of golden yellow as my cord skirt. At first I wasn’t keen on the black boots and tights (I thought black was too heavy) but it’s not warm enough to go bare-legged yet! So I added the black and leopard print bag to bring the outfit together and make the black tights and boots less incongruous.
To complete the look I chose jewellery in keeping with the turquoise and golden yellow colour theme. The bracelet is one of my own creations and it’s almost as if I made it especially for this outfit!
