Black and white pattern mix

Pattern play is one of my style favourites, and today I'm having fun showing off these new smart/casual joggers which I deem smart enough to be work attire. The blouse was a gift from my daughter some time ago which seemed to get lost in the morass of tops that are folded away in the bottom of my wardrobe. But hey, don't they work so well together? I'm delighted with this laid-back combo which makes me feel like a bit of a cool cat. Take a closer look at the print and you'll see the joke.

These silver pumps are so comfortable for work when I want to wear flats, but are still stylish. My only criticism is that I seem to have a bit of tape stuck to the sole - a hazard of the job when you consider the amount of packing we do! 

The outfit proved to be ideal today for the crazy mix of weather we're experiencing in the name of summer. The joggers are from Topshop (get them for £10 in the sale) and are a manmade fibre, but are really light and feel silky smooth. Just right for a cool summer's day when you don't want to wear a skirt/dress as it's too drafty. Island life is always a bit breezy but some days the wind direction is colder than others. The top is from H&M but that was a couple of years ago (this is a similar piece) Shoes are by Dune (these are similar). Rings and bangle are all from charity shops and my trusty sunglasses are from Quay Australia

Must dash as I have another busy day ahead with the second of our summer shows to hang this evening after our day's work is finished. The exhibition opens on Saturday so I hope to show you a few snaps of the party outfit in my next post. Still have to find that special something to wear though...
