With the weather blowing hot and cold it makes deciding what to wear a little tricky, and it really was blowing…getting a photo without my hair all over my face was quite a challenge! It wasn’t too cold though so instead of wearing a coat I chose this Next geometric print jacket with a silk blouse from Reiss underneath. I wouldn’t usually pair a dark purple top with black trousers but the jacket has both colours in the pattern, while the white background provides some contrast.
A jacket with a bold print is a really useful item to have in your wardrobe because you can just throw it on over a plain dress, or shirt and trousers combination to create a look that stands out. I bought the Reiss silk blouse and Modalu leather bag from Ebay – my favourite hunting ground for bargains. The bag was new with the tags still attached and cost less than £20 including postage! I first wore this Next jacket on the blog two years ago.
