Smart and sassy!




Hello lovely readers! How are you today? Well, I hope.




Today's title refers to the outfit, not me by the way. You'll have seen the dress featured previously, but the addition of a jacket just gives it a smart edge. My love of pattern play is truly evident here too, even down to the heart sprigged tights. It felt like a proper spring outfit when I wore it earlier this week. 




The jacket is by Heyton, bought in TK Maxx a few years ago. It really is a beautifully tailored piece, with perfect proportions for my height; flattering cut, neat stitching and lovely sleeve length. I had a search online for the brand, but couldn't find a web page, however I did find the same jacket on eBay if anyone is interested. 




My leather brogues are from Office (very old), but do work so well with this Zara snakeprint dress. I love the mint shade of the shoes although they're quite a difficult colour to tie in with a lot of my outfits. They are absolute heaven to wear, being all day long comfy with no need for that lunchtime swap over as so often happens to me. The Radley handbag was a wonderful charity shop find, a stylish neutral bag for this look.

 


My rings are both pre-loved, charity shopped and blooming perfect for this ensemble. Hurrah!




The dress came with its own self tie belt, so as is my wont I changed that for a different one; yet another charity shop find. It's leather and elastic woven with gilt trim to create an unusual accessory that had earned its place in my collection.






Next month is my 6 year blogging anniversary and I'm inviting any of my readers to send me an email with a photo of yourself in an outfit inspired by Anna's Island Style. Some of my blogging friends have responded to this, but I'd love to showcase readers too. So don't be shy, please step up and let me feature you on my anniversary feature!

  3. Oh, I adore this outfit Anna.
    I love how you get away with flats with your dresses.. I just don’t.
    Pattern mixing fab; dress and shoes are a beautiful colour. X

    1. Thanks Phyllis. I've not always been happy with the flatties and dress look, but recently have seen it done in lots of mags and decided that I could do that too. Anyway, thank you!

  4. Yes Anna, I'm still thinking of an "Anna outfit" this week. Sunday is predicted with sunshine and higher temps. So, I will do my best (and have to speak with my photographer aka husband...). I have a outfit in mind and hope it works. I'm such a jeans girl and can't offer you a every day outfit...
