I hope your week got off to a great start! Having to get up early for the school run is taking some getting used to, and it’s only going to get harder as we approach Winter. I keep watching A Place in the Sun and wishing I could escape to somewhere warm…preferably on a permanent basis! Madeira or Barbados would be my top choices. We have booked to go back to Barbados next Easter but that feels like a long way away. In theory we could go to Madeira in October half term, which would be lovely. However, with Covid cases starting to rise here in the UK it might be wise to wait until next year for a holiday.
I’ve packed a lot of my Summer clothes away because I don’t think we’ll get any more really warm weather. It was getting hard to find anything amongst the piles of clothes! I have a ten-day stint at work coming up where I’ll be in the office, so I needed to get organised. Some pieces are just too nice to pack away yet though. I wanted to wear this pink one shoulder corsage top before it gets too cold because it’s too pretty to wait until next Spring!
At first, I’d planned to wear it with pink trousers for a sugary sweet outfit. However, the trousers are one pair of many that need taking up (why do they make trousers so long?) and I didn’t want them dragging on the wet grass. If only I had some basic sewing skills! So my next thought was to contrast the pretty top with my camo print trousers for an edgier look.
These utility style trousers are great for this time of year because they’re not too thick. They have quite a silky feel which makes them really comfortable (I also have them in beige, seen here and here). I love the versatility of this style of trousers because you can dress them up like I have here, or wear them with a T-shirt and trainers for a casual look.
The pink kitten heel mules lengthen the legs and counteract the shortening effect of the elasticated cuffs. I added a fun pink clutch (which can also be worn as a crossbody or bumbag) and rose quartz jewellery. The flower-embellished sunglasses compliment the large corsage on the top and add an extra fun touch to the outfit. They’re the pink version of the sunglasses I wore in last week’s link up post…it’s not just clothes I buy in multiple colours!
