Tonight we enjoyed a very rare dinner out with friends at a local casual dining spot. Weather was perfect for dining on the patio — not hot, not cold, not windy, not too sunny. And I was excited to take these brown linen pants for their first outing.

The background of my sleeveless shell is black but the profusion of colour in the pattern strikes me as working with just any colour I’ve tried it with so far. I bought three vibrant floral shells this summer and this might be my favourite.

This was also the first outing for the orange cardigan. I have a bit of a crush on this vibrant shade of orange, and quite like how it plays against the magenta hues in the shell and the earthiness of the pants.

Comments and suggestions for improvement always welcome! Thanks for looking.
