Bright pink with black and white. #chicandstylish #linkup

Morning - hope you're having a super week.

September for some means back to school.  I remember going back to school  - a new term, exciting chatter of what happened in the Summer holidays. Who went where on holiday, who was 'going out' with who, what everyone got up to - oh happy days.  A new school, and I mean a brand new school, my mum re-married when I was 11, so I left junior school in the July, starting a different secondary school in September not knowing anyone!  August was always filled with finding the new school uniform, a new school skirt, jumper and blouse - there wasn't a regulatory uniform just certain colours - boring blue and pale blue?  The joy of reaching 5th year when the whole year could vote for a different colour from all the rest of the school.  My year chose brown and cream - one of my favourite colour schemes then - Blimey how awful!

Imagine if I could have worn bright pink and black?  How interesting would that colour scheme be!

The cheerful pink cardigan pops with delight over the black and white ensemble.  I loved wearing the ankle trousers the first time I put them on - and like them even more now.  They came home with me after a recent shopping trip!  H & M have a wonderful selection of everyday wear, with some special pieces too.  I'd class my trousers as plain with a quirky twist - mainly because of the length, I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm hooked on them.




The basic outfit comprises of the ankle trousers from H & M, with a black silky top from Matalan - I picked up a few of these a couple of years ago in different colours - they seem to work there way into so many of my outfits.

What do you think of my black, white and pink outfit?  Something you would wear?

  2. I'm still trying to get to grips with the ankle length too Jacqui. I've just bought my second pair. Being short makes it even harder!
    These look good on you though. Maybe I should try elongating stripes. xx

  5. Jacqui, I LOVE this outfit – although I wouldn't wear trousers that length (I just feel weird in them!), I think you look fabulous. This is one of my favourite colour schemes (remember my fab 40s outfit this month?). I've been looking for a pink cardigan but have struggled. Where is yours from?

  10. Pink and black would have been a brilliant school uniform! (Ours was dark green and that was pretty adventurous compared to other schools in our town!) I really like the classy striped trousers with the bright pop of pink - a lovely bright way to start the school year!

  19. I love the striped trousers with the pink cardigan and sandals. My school uniform was grey trousers/skirt and a burgundy jumper. I hated it at the time but I rather like the two colours together now!

  20. My kids have a uniform for their school and yes it can get rather bland and boring, but it makes the mornings easier! Love the pops of pinks in this outfit mixed with the b/w stripes! Happy Weekend!
