Chanel Style Skirt with Textured top & Ted Baker Jacket - #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my fellow over fifty bloggers.
How are you all?

My holiday's starting to become a distant memory and having the internet fixed I'm back to blogging with vigour and determination.  I'm determined to go up a level in the blogging world, which means learning more, finding out more & studying more of your interesting blogs.
Yesterdays weather just wasn't what I had expected at all.  With France suffering a wicked heatwave, I really thought we'd be experiencing warmer weather here!  It was really cold with a wind blowing making it feel like a totally different season.  I decided to wear a skirt when I popped into town, but had to take a jacket with me, just to keep me warm! 



I went for a mix-up outfit, not so much by way of colours, but patterns and textures.
I opted for the chanel style knee length skirt that I picked up in the M & S Sale earlier on this year.  With a few shades in the skirt there's lots of options to style it.  Back in May I wore my pink cashmere jumper over it for a nice spring style, but always wanted to wear it with white or cream.

That's just what I put on with it yesterday.  I took some trousers back to Zara, deciding way before I got there I was going for a refund .... but.... they have a sale on and I couldn't resist the cute little pale blue knitted jumper I found - oh dear - there's just no hope it there!  Can you resist the Zara sale????


This off white sleeveless knitted top was ideal to pair with the mini skirt & with my textured Ted Baker (first seen here) jacket my interesting little number left me feeling confident and happy. 



My off-white top is a cross between a knitted jumper and a crochet tee shirt and has an intricate design over it - I love the scalloped edge on the sleeves and hem, but neglected to get photos of this, so you'll have to take my word for it.  But you can see a snippet of the jacket lining on the photo above - Ted Baker always have winning styles with sassy linings to the tailored pieces - I'm hearting ๐Ÿ’–this.

I adore the Ted Baker jacket that hubby gave me for Christmas - so it might not be available now (this is very similar) It has stylish rose gold details, including front zip and side bows - what's not to like!

  18. Jacqui, that is a very smart outfit. Love the many colors in that skirt and you styled it perfectly. Honestly, every time I return something I end up buying and spending more than I brought back. Thinking, hmm, this would make a good post. It's hopeless, my friend! Haha!

  19. You can always find something fabulous in the Zara sale, right? I was in there the other day but I was with hubby so couldn't have a proper look, and you need plenty of time to have a real look because they've got so much stuff! Unfortunately I left with nothing but hubby bought a pair of shoes!!! Typical!
    Hugs
