My style is pretty classic. Straight lines, basic combinations and lots of black  I blame years of working in corporate environments where the majority of money spent on my wardrobe was spent on black or charcoal suits, pinstripe button ups and modest heels. Mostly modest heels. It’s taken me YEARS to add a bit of colour and fun to this wardrobe since switching to working part-time.

Sooooo, what’s this go to do with anything?

Well I’ve set myself a bit of a challenge to try new things. Shapes, cuts and styles I would normally not wear. Lots of pattern mixing, clashing colours… That sort of thing. But in a way that sits with my wardrobe and my preferences, style wise. Today’s outfit is a great example of that. the stripe top, necklace and kitten heels is something I wear often. By adding the skirt it made it completely different! Very out of the box for me.

But you know what, it was FUN. I’m going to do it again. Watch this space!
