Black and Red By The Riverside

A stroll by the riverside wearing black and red was the order of the day. Black and red have long
been a favourite combination of mine so when I spied this top at a local recycled clothing store I
knew it had to mine.

The top is mesh with the interesting lady in red velvet and was purchased by its previous owner
in Canada , the label is Donna .Glad the previous owner let it go as I really love it and it is the
perfect companion for my Moyuru skort and last years black wedges.

When I started my stroll the day was cool so I had on my Caroline Moore leather crop jacket . To complete the outfit I added a collection of red and black bangles , a red necklace and black sunnies.

Finishing today’s post with these Christmas lilies in my garden, they smell divine .
Sending all my best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas.

    Wow! Gorgeous outfit, and the colours of our local Rugby club, a certain winning combination! If you hadn't have told us the label for that top I was going to say Custo Barcelona, it looks like one of theirs. Merry Christmas xx

    The more I see of your styling, the more I appreciate it. Initially your look always seems understated, but it's all in the detail with you Jill. I love how you put your outfits together with such classy(as opposed to classic) pieces and in your own, quirky way. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas
