This week, I set myself a personal challenge to take inspiration from others style and also advice provided to me. apologies that some of the photos are fuzzy.

Day 1 - Inspired by Zaeobi's brocade jacket - I wore my brocade jacket with jeans for a day of working from home. I had to take a number of calls and video conferences, so it was nice to feel pulled together and enjoy this beautiful jacket.

Day 2 - Inspired by Angie's love of a pant suit - I had bookclub and dinner with my girlfriends, so I wore my pink velvet suit and felt stylish and comfortable.

Day 3 - an important client meeting. I channelled Katerina's dressy style and love of sophisticated black and white. I was also inspired by Angie's bookending of hair post, so went with white boots. I wore my new camellia brooch, which reminded me of how Brooklyn and Katerina use brooches to great effect.

Day 4 - wearing blues which made me think of The Cat, who looks stunning in blue and white. I really appreciated the feedback to wear the colours that I love, blue being one of them rather than trying to get grey to work for me. This is just a super casual Saturday relaxed outfit.

Day 5 - Back in Black - inspired by Katerina's post on black being a favourite neutral. I bought this two piece dress inspired by Suz, who is the master of buying great skirt and top matching sets. I like how this dark floral has turquoise in the print, so allows me to pair it with a favourite bag. Camellia brooch also added just for fun.
