In my previous post "Simply Striped", you saw how I mixed a classic striped tee with a light and airy jersey blazer to create a simple summer look. As I knew I was going out later that day to a surprise birthday for my brother's girlfriend turned fianc√© (a wonderful surprise for the whole family once we had arrived!), I fancied dressing up a little more to create a sharper look. This was easily attainable by switching out my jersey blazer and striped tee for this thicker, fitted cotton navy blazer, spotted navy shirt and dusty blue jumper. All these pieces felt substantial and kept me warm in the cooler evening. To break up the blue and add extra warmth, I added this tan/beige paisley scarf. The print added an interesting dimension to the outfit, whilst the oversized shape added volume and texture. It also tied in well with the penny loafers and cross body bag, creating colour continuity. I kept the accessories I wore earlier in the day as they still worked with this colourway and added interest. This way of dressing is by far my favourite, not too formal but still smart and sharp with casual undertones.

Have a great weekend guys,
