Black and White Pattern Mixing - and Link Up

Pattern mixing. Do you do much of it? If you'd like to try pattern mixing, this is a safe and fun way to get started - using the same color palette. I ordered this houndstooth top when I was shopping for the Style Not Age check challenge. As it turned out, I loved both the top and the trousers I wore in the challenge and decided to keep both.

Roses, Swans and Sawdust: Sentence a Day, June 2020

Pink cupped rose Scepter'd Isle in flower in London, UK, June 2020
We're still in lock down here in the UK although rules are easing. During June "non-essential" shops were allowed to open, with lots of rules around quarantining of any clothes tried on or touched, and social distancing of course. Some schools reopened (although not very many). People living on their own were allowed to form a "bubble" with one other household. Most people are either working from home, where it's possible, or furloughed, with the exception of key workers.

All Pink, Summer Beauty Boxes and Link Up
