The hot and sunny weather is back after all the storms 🙂 Actually, these photos were taken just before I left for work about a week ago. It was one of those humid days when it’s cloudy one minute and blazing sunshine the next. I don’t like shooting in bright sunlight but I didn’t have time to wait for cloud cover.
I’ve been wearing my trouser suits and co-ords a bit more lately; they look smart and are also practical for working in an air-conditioned building. I prefer to wear this striped trouser suit with red accents to bring out the red in the print. I’ve previously styled it with a casual T-shirt, but I think this Scotch & Soda blouse looks much better. I bought it from the-Bias-Cut.com last year and it’s still available in a medium on sale at half price here.
Trousers suits are a great addition to your wardrobe because they give you lots of options. You can split the jacket and trousers up to create multiple outfits for different occasions. Wearing the jacket with a T-shirt, jeans and trainers creates a stylish weekend look. You could pair the trousers with a chunky jumper and ankle boots in colder weather, or a camisole and heels for evening. Worn together though, a trouser suit in a bold print makes maximun impact.
I pulled out these red platform sandals to match the top and bag. They’re quite old but I haven’t worn them much. They’re even less comfortable now than they were the last time I wore tham about five years ago. That shows how much my feet have changed in that time. I was certainly paying for it the next day!
There seems to have been a problem with last week’s link up as it isn’t showing on the post or in my InLinkz account, so apologies for that. WordPress continually kicks me off without saving which is making life very difficult! Jacqui has mentioned having the same problems so if you know what might be causing it please let me know! I’ve been a bit preoccupied this last week with one thing and another and I completely missed it the error. As a result, there aren’t any favourites 🙁 But, I’ve made sure the link up IS saved this week…and there’s also Sunday’s link up too!
