Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. It’s the last Monday of the month already…which means it’s time for September’s Style Not Age. Anna chose the colourful theme of Pretty in Pink for this instalment. As my wardrobe is awash with colour I didn’t have to sweat this one! Rather than pastel pink, which I wear more in the summer, I opted for this hot pink. The trousers and jacket look like a suit until you see them close up as the satin side stripe on the trousers matches the jacket. To keep the look tonal, I decided on a purple pussy bow blouse with a pink floral print. I have a few of these from Hawes & Curtis as they have the most gorgeous prints and the fit is great.

As soon as I decided on the pink and purple colour palette I knew I had to wear these two tone shoes with them. They were really cheap in a sale at New Look years ago, and to be honest, they’re not very comfortable. Well actually, most heels are not comfortable for me these days, but they are perfect for this outfit. If I was on me feet all day I’d swap the heels for trainers or low wedges. The bag is really old too – I bought it in Sorrento about 15 years ago. I would love to go back there, it’s such a pretty part of Italy. These sunglasses were an eBay bargain, costing only £6 including postage. I finished off the look with an enamel flower ring and gold and amethyst disc earrings.
