My attempt at mixing checks and leather...

Hello dear friends... It's late, and I've just flown back from a day trip to Lisbon. I feel like my eyelids are closing down as I type, but yesterday's outfit was too much fun not to post about!

Now, have I ever told you how much I love tartans, checks, and all manners of woven patterns? I am not sure I have, but I have worn check on other posts over the years. For me they are a perfect pattern for Winter. So I am totally over the moon that check patterns are such a massive trend this season: from oversized scarves to lumber shirts and cigarette trousers, if you can name a piece of clothing you can probably find it with a check pattern this season!



I'm my case, I've been wearing my Sézane Irish Scarf almost non stop since the onset of the cooler days... With jeans, knit dresses, but always with block colours. Until, that is, this week. This week I decided to accessorize some check trousers with it. Too much checks? Maybe, ... but it's fun! And, looking at the pictures, well it does seem to have worked, what do you all think?


The colours all tie in together, from the bright red on the woven pattern to the patent stilettos, and the little leather jacket is a nice complement to the outfit, embedding it firmly in pure Britannia style, which just goes to show how well I've adopted my new home!

To finish it all off, I added my distressed 227 Chanel Reissue. It's my most chic rock-n-roll bag, and I love that it's so much more roomy compared with the more classic handbags at Chanel.

Hello there,
you are looking great, not heavy eyed at all. I am also a plaid type of gal, I have acumulated such a bunch of shirts over the years and I still am tempted by more season after season.
Oh and I love the Chanel, I have the same but I still need to take out of the cupboard...!

Du schaust super aus! Besonders gefällt mir das 2. Bild auf dem du so schön lachst.
Ich mag Karos auch und das Tuch ist klasse aber greife dann doch lieber zu meinen Burberry Schals weil die so schön kuschellig sind. An dir gefällt mir das Tuch sehr und du hast es wieder stielsicher kombiniert. Daumen hoch

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. I've changed radically how I eat and I've been working out whenever I have a little bit of time. I think it does help with the clearer complexion! xoxo
