30 for 30 - Day 4 & Everybody Everywear - The Blazer

So I am gonna have to make this a mega quick post as I am on my way out the door to work, and if I don't sort the post out now (Monday Night) I won't have time before tomorrow. I decided to roll two challenges into one post and use one outfit with just a little difference.

First up my 30 for 30 Day 4 outfit (I apologise for my creased skirt but this was a quick shot taken before packing the outfit and I assure you it was ironed before it was actually worn out of the house)
Outfit made up of: 4+13+22+26
4. I.N.C
13. Nygard Collection
22. F+F
26. TKMaxx
+
Random Leggings
Random Feather and bead necklace
Random Ring
Hair band from Canada
Some pattern mixing as you can see. I have been wanting to pair these 2 items together for a while but just hadn't gotten round to it. I think the strong flower motif on both makes them work well together. Plus I don't own a lot of yellow so think it's great the two piece work with each other. I think I could also do this outfit with a plain white tank top in the summer, when it is a little warmer.

Now for my second part. This months Everybody Everywear item was - The Classic Blazer. I didn't put one in my 30 for 30 - so this doesn't count as a 30 for 30 outfit but I am using the basic items with the blazer. This is how I change my look very simply from casual to business. Drop the cardigan, necklace and bow hairband - pull on a smart black blazer and don my glasses and voila... a chic business look
Blazer - River Island
Brooch - Vintage

This was worn to a business meeting with my new editor.



Ok so thats all, coz if I don't leave now I'm gonna miss my bus.
Hope you like my outfits for both the challenges. What would you pair my skirt or cardigan with? Any suggestions?

  22. I love the pattern mixing! So great!

    Yellow is one of those colors that can be worn with so many others, so I think a turquoise cardigan would look great, or red tights, or purple something-or-other. Have fun playing with different combinations!

  40. I think pattern mixing is a tricky thing, but you did a lovely job with it! I'm such a fan of cardigans (I think my wardrobe is 99% cardigan), and I've found that just adding a different belt can change the whole outfit!
    Lovely, lovely pictures - I love that blazer too! :)
