Michael Kors studded jacket

Wednesday, May 09, 2018

Hi there! How are you? Today's post features a mellow mix of old and new, pulled together for the first time. I enjoy putting preloved and new pieces together to create a unique look.


The Michael Kors jacket is a few years old, and I'm so pleased that it remains a firm favourite of mine. I bought it in TK Maxx and therefore paid real money for it, as opposed to it being some lucky charity shop bargain.  The studs are a mixture of metal and plastic, meaning it's a veritable workout in itself just wearing that all day long.


I stuck with a simple black and white theme for the rest of the outfit, but that doesn't make it staid when you throw a few patterns into the mix. The preloved trousers and top (H&M) are both in a floral print and therefore are a very happy marriage indeed.



Silver is the accent colour for my accessories. The silver trainers were a recent purchase in TK Maxx while I was in Harrogate. Aren't they fab!


The brand is Ellesse.


The disc necklace (reminds me of those big mints my grandad used to eat) is old and was from Marks and Spencer, the disc ring is preloved and the other is by Diana Porter. Sunnies are by Quay Australia. The rose gold watch is by Michael Kors.


And this is why I fell for this preloved H&M blouse - aren't those sleeves lovely!


Not so much a pose, more a delicious stretch to get a kink out of my spine!


And finally, I'd like to say a big thank-you to those of you who are still visiting the blog. It's at this time of year that blogging views start to drop as we all have more pressing things to do with our time. Warmer weather draws everyone outdoors to spend time in the garden or the beach to enjoy a barbeque on those balmy evenings all of which detract from the lure of the blog. For me, I still love getting dressed up and therefore the photos will keep coming regardless of the numbers of readers. I hope that those of you who remain continue to find something to keep you interested. Your comments mean a lot to me and help keep me motivated during these times, so do please take a moment to give me some feedback. I love to hear from you!

  1. Oh, yes, the summer view-drops, very familiar with those! Keep on keepin' on, Anna! Your faithful readers will stick with you!

    The outfit - oh, dang, I love that jacket. This is Exhibit A of why it's good we live so far apart. I'd steal that right off you! I adore this black and white symphony of patterns, and wow, what big sleeves you have, my dear! I am still not 100% sold on trainers/sneakers/runners for everyday wear, but I'm coming around (you will see me in rubber-toed Camper casual shoes tonight). Shiny is always good. I'm a big fan of that necklace and ring too.

  2. Thank goodness that we live so far apart - I'm not sure our friendship could handle all those squabbles over clothes! I know you're not keen on trainers for everyday, but some of my days are all about running around and climbing ladders that I just have to take the soft option. And yes, at least they're shiny!

    1. Thanks Monica. Sometimes it makes a nice change to stop all the colourfest and concentrate on a monochrome challenge. The patterns and studs all go to add to the interest though, don't they? Glad you like it all!

    1. I'd not thought of it as a kind of tuxedo, but I get what you mean Jude. Does this constitute smart casual? It may do ...

      Have a lovely week!
