Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. It’s the last Monday of the month…finally. January really does drag, doesn’t it? It feels more like two months since Christmas. Jacqui chose the theme of Red Alert! for January’s Style Not Age theme. Red is never not on trend (well, in my opinion anyway!) but it was one of the key trends for autumn/winter and is still going strong into spring.
Nothing in this outfit is new except the bag, which I bought a few months ago on the Jayley website. I’ve worn the top and trousers before for the Style Not Age Iris Apfel theme a couple of years ago. They’re a near perfect shade match (probably because they are both River Island) so make a useful outfit option when I’m in a hurry. The black vest helps to create an elongating effect and breaks up the block of red. I like to add a big necklace for the same reason and to add in that “third colour”, in this case gold. The hat balances out the proportions, and on this occasion kept the drizzly rain off my hair.
