Can you wear stripes and spots together? Of course, you can. My friends in the ‘Style Not Age’ group showcase their stripey and spotty/dotty outfits this month.
Surprisingly, we all had to go digging deep in our wardrobes for this challenge. I bought these faux leather trousers in Primark recently, but this was their first outing. And the bucket hat is from there too. My Whistles jumper is years old and I was delighted to see how good it looked with them. You have seen the M&S boots on many occasions. And the bag is from local boutique Lulabelle. But the piece-de-resistance is my spotty scarf which brings the outfit together and is a present from a dear friend.
Gail ‘had’ to go shopping for her lovely pink jumper and diamanté leggings from M&S. For everything else, she shopped her wardrobe. Gail can tell you all about it on Is this Mutton.
Anna says her amazing velvet trousers are the only striped item of clothing she has! She paired them with a lovely, spotty voile sleeved top from TK Maxx and brocade boots from Asos.
The mix of velvet and voile means Anna is ready for a very festive season. Check out Anna on AnnasIslandStyle.
Jacqui looks lovely in her spotty scarf and new stripey jumper. Put it with a trusty pair of white jeans and she looks very patriotic indeed. If you check out her post at Mummabstylish you can find out more.
Emma came up with the prompt this month and she was obviously well-prepared. How fabulous is her outfit? Doesn’t she do stripes and spots so well?
She shopped her wardrobe and showcases a mixture of high street and charity shop finds. And if you pop over to TheStyleSplash you can see where she shopped.
Thank you for reading. I will be back with some ideas for Christmas presents very soon.
Love Hilda xx

I don’t think I’ve put the 2 prints together before but this is a fun combination!
I love this elegant look of yours Hilda! The scarf did indeed pull the whole outfit together, but it’s the hat that stole the scene in my view. Brilliant styling from you as ever Hilda x
