For someone who loves to play with bright splashes of colour, being bold and mixing patterns is not something I’ve ever felt comfortable with. It just feels so wrong, I was brought up in a household where brown and black were never mixed. So clashing patterns have always felt like a huge no no! However, after having this pinafore smock dress for almost a year now, it’s the perfect go to dress for autumn and I wanted to breathe new life into it. (Here’s how I wore this pinafore smock back in January.)
F&F at Tesco are currently having another huge sale. Among the bargains I’ve found, I’ve managed to pick up yet another striped top for the measly price of £4. It was the 70s inspired turtle neck that really got me. All of a sudden, I’ve become obsessed with finding that one piece that can tie a new outfit together from the old. It’s one of the many reasons I love charity shops. For just £4, I’ve mixed old and new to create a new autumn outfit.
