Another look at The Bias-Cut shirt. #chicandstylish #linkup

Morning, thanks for visiting my little blog space.

Today I thought I'd share another look with my Bias-Cut Shirt.
I don't know what was going on with my hair when these shots were taken, although it was raining, so my hard work of drying and styling were somewhat wasted!
Anyhow - I felt like channelling my inner 'Anna' and doing a bit of pattern matching - please say I've got it right!!
I knew this shirt would work perfectly for many different looks, and figured I could wear it as a jacket.  I picked this dress, but was unsure what the result would be - I reckon it's worked though as I quite like the look.  I definitely needed the extra layer as the rain had made it a little chilly!  My dress is from Matalan a couple of seasons ago, and I have to say I love wearing it.  The thin straps are just the job for hot weather, and the full skirt gives movement and swish when I walk, creating a little breeze wherever I go.  It also makes a lovely circle when I spin round - not that I do it that often, only when my grand-daughter is around - she loves a dancing dress!! 😍

To match the pink shirt I wore my pink Primark ankle boots - they came in handy quite a lot in the spring, lifting dark jeans and trousers to brighten up many of my outfits.  They looked equally as good with my outfit today.
Plain black beads were all I could pair with the shirt and dress - well I couldn't go too far with my mixing and matching - after all I'm still a pattern matching virgin! Lol.

Fancy a party?  Time to join the #chicandstyish #linkup.

Ada who's found on her blog Elegance and Mommy hood, has got me with her black and white midi striped skirt.  The pop of blue in both her stunning necklace and sunglasses make for an interesting outfit - but I would expect nothing less from Ada, as she always has an intriguing outfit to share with us!  Love the sneaker trainers too Ada, perfect for running around after your little beauty Vivian.

  1. Great pattern mixing Jacqui! Thank you for hosting xx

  2. Your shirt is lovely Jacqui. Love your dress too. Great patterning mixing, I must try this idea :) Thanks for hosting and the reminder :)

  3. Love the patterns together and especially loving those booties! Great look Jacqui!

  4. I'm all for wearing shirts as jackets. So much lighter for summer! Have fun twirling with your granddaughter xx Maria

  5. Jacqui, the subtleties in the pink pattern are the perfect complement to the bold black and white pattern! I think you are much more of a pattern mixing expert than you are giving yourself credit for! This is a brilliant combination. And those booties are magnificent! Great look, my friend!


  6. Very clever idea Jacqui. I'd never have thought of wearing a blouse like a jacket but it works really well with this dress and cute boots.

  7. I'm seeing a few shirts worn that way recently. I've been meaning to try it and you've inspired me further. You look great and it's so useful to use a shirt different ways. Pink and black such a good combo too. Thanks for link up.

  8. I absolutely adore the shirt this way. Both in the style and the print mixing!! This gives me many ideas!! Thanks Jacqui!!

  9. You look more like a pattern mixing pro to me! Well done! Love your booties too.

  10. I love the pattern mixing in this outfit and I so need a pair of blush ankle boots like those!


  11. A very pretty look Jacqui! I love pink and black together and those are some cute boots!
    Have a great day!
