Black , Leopard Print and Some Murals

Sheffield , a small town in the north west of my state, is known as the town of murals. The town once a centre for industry and agriculture has reinvented itself as an arts community. The murals feature pictorial characters and stories that depict the town’s history.

There is also an Annual Mural Fest that attracts artists from all over the world. These are just a couple of murals from this years competition. The relaxed man above very much reminds me of my husband on his annual camping trip.

 This very clever Mural with its reflections is titled “Past and Present”.

There was an Autumn chill in the air that called for the donning of a jacket , my black Moyuru swing jacket fitted the bill and teamed perfectly with my old faithful Nicola Waite crop pants. Leopard print called my name in the form of this gifted hat and black leather and leopard gloves and Preen sunnies.

Love the reflection mural, what a great idea!You look very harmonious with the season, love the thoughtful details of your outfit and those fantastic glasses! Lots of love!

    It's always a treat to see what you've created with the outfit of the day and this doesn't disappoint. Black and leopard print could be passe but not with your magic touch Jill. I love the crop pants and the swing jacket adds that certain je ne sais quoi. I'm delighted that I've recently found my own version of black crops too – I just need to find the right styling for them now.The murals are wonderful and must be fantastic to see in the flesh – lucky you!Anna
