Black Linen

I am loving how light and comfortable linen is to wear as a top. Linen dresses crease, as do trousers, but linen and cotton blend tops are the perfect combination for comfort and crease-less-ness!

I have this same top in pale pink and turquoise because they are great for work, weekends and cocktails. All depends what you pair them with: dark jeans and heels, denim shorts or a sparkly mini skirt!

Tulip Skirt

Today my feet were sore from wearing high heels yesterday, so I planned my outfit to be comfortable and cute, with flats!

I bought this adorable gold necklace and cannot get enough of it, the smiley face can be flipped over to a sad face, which is a great way to warn your colleagues when not to bother you! A mood necklace 🙂 Like a Facebook status update for the world to see.

I did a tight pony tail, which is unusal for me, but felt like something fresh to make a change. I used a small clip to wrap a small section of hair to cover the hairband.

I also have a farewell party tonight, so a short skirt translate well into cocktail hour.

Start with a Feather

I bought this gorgeous dipped feather necklace and spent most of last night thinking about the best ‘back drop’ for it. I figured this seasons bright orange/tangerine would be best.

Am really into simple, comfortable tops with classic blazers and great pieces of fun jewelry, but never too much all at once! That’s my motto with jewelry 🙂

Shades of Grey

This morning I felt like gray and pink. I often wake up with a colour in mind, regardless of having previously planned my look the night before.

I love this grey jacket over the grey top. Initially it felt like it would be an overdose of grey but I think it rocks.
