As suggested by...Angela

Yes, it's time for my monthly feature again, the one where you suggest what I ought to wear. My thanks go to Angela for her recent email reminding me that I hadn't worn this cream jacket for a few months. She and I met at the Harvest Festival service at our local church last year while she was here on holiday, and after the service we got chatting about this jacket which I was wearing at the time. Now a regular reader, Angela wanted to see me wear it again.


So far I've managed to wear it in almost every season, even at Christmas when I took part in a feature with other bloggers see here. It's such a versatile jacket, mainly down to the neutral colour, I suppose. Today I've married it up with these wide legged trousers in a very autumnal colourway which I found in H&M in London in February. They're really long which is great as they make me look much taller and more leggy than I actually am, but meant I had to do quite a bit of rooting about to find the right height of shoes. In fact, I've gone with my russet suede platform boots which just about deliver the perfect height.








I couldn't resist adding this photo to entice you to give me the quote of the day...






The next time I post we'll be in June - summer to all intents and purposes - so I hope I can rise to the challenge and finally pack the last of my winter things away. These boots are heading into storage along with most of my beautiful brogues, sob, sob. My mint green and pale pinks ones will remain, along with blue suede babies and some much loved cream ones which are truly showing their age. Hopefully the sun will start to show it's face a bit more consistently and in readiness I will get on with the primping and priming necessary for the bare legs and sandals that are summer on Scilly. 

Jacket: Tabitha. Trousers: H&M (sim). Boots: Office (on sale now) Top: eBay. Handbag: charity shop. Watch: Michael Kors. Belt: Zara.

    1. Hey Sheila, I'm already seeing how many pairs of brogues can have a last minute reprieve... Summer sandals will be fine once I get back into the swing of things!

  4. That is a smashing jacket and so versatile! The trousers and top pattern mixing is great and the boots are fab with it. I have two pair of loose trousers that I have to hem as I can't wear heels for long; I need to get on with it or the summer will have gone and they still won't have been sewn.

    I love that bag - it's perfect with the outfit!

    Have a great week,

  7. You are such an inspiration with your print mixing Anna!!
    I can see why Angela wanted to see you wear that jacket again---the details on it are quite unique & lovely!
    And that red ring you're wearing---so cool! Are you able to wear it while you work, or is it more for showcasing?

    1. I think pattern mixing adds a great fun element to an outfit Jodie. I used to play it safe by always wearing a plain top when I wore patterned trousers but now I'm hooked on mixing up my colours and patterns. And that ring is really for wearing - it's actually elasticated so is very comfortable.

  8. Such a cute outfit! All three pieces were exquisite! The jacket does have so many cute details, especially the hem in the back. Just found your blog and I'll be back!
