Yesterday I decided I should try harder to find some new colours to pair with my purple jeans – I’m pretty sure today’s green fits the brief. This navy/green print top somehow managed to convince me it was pretty much navy, and then before I knew it I was wearing emerald-green and bright purple together!

Pretty much every time I wear this leopard print scarf I just can’t resist pairing it with my brown boots. Today I thought I’d consciously do something different (black boots – totally crazy I know). I still managed to sneak in some matching brown with my belt though – I’m wondering now if I should have gone for black instead?

Yes, I’m talking about some very minor points on a standard not-too-exciting outfit. Some days it’s minutia or nothing!

Linking up with Kiwi Womens Style for Wardrobe Wednesday.

Today I had the privilege of celebrating a friend’s 30th birthday at a very posh high tea. It was a beautiful spread, including the biggest buffet dessert table I’ve ever seen full of amazingly crafted sweet treats – including a chocolate fountain. So delicious. So difficult to exercise restraint. I ate much more than I should have – but less than I COULD have at least!

Lace and florals seemed appropriate for the occasion, so I tweaked a few elements from a favourite outfit from summer to make it work for the cooler weather. I don’t think the skinny belt I wore today looked as good as the wide waist belt from last time, but I didn’t want to distract too much from my pearl necklace.

It’s that time of year – we’ve had a taste of warmer weather but it’s settled back into the cool again. In the meantime I really feel like I’m running out of ideas, so this outfit is a slight variation on a couple of others. Which kind of feels like cheating, but at the same time it’s what creating a functional wardrobe is about!
