Leopard print is all around us and I'm already getting bored with how ubiquitous it is, but this gorgeous blouse ticks many other boxes.  It's from POM Amsterdam at and will be a very versatile asset in my wardrobe.
I'm wearing it here with a burgundy velvet jacket (thrifted), a silver pleated skirt (eBay) and Attire silver ankle boots from Office London.  But it would also look great with khaki chinos  (the leopard print is shades of green) and jeans, or a long grey cardigan and trousers for work.

I've been struggling to find "my look" in the office, because as I've told you before, it's a very casual working environment, although I don't personally like to wear jeans to work every day.  I realised that a black and white blouse I bought from Next has been a real hero product because it's so easy to slip on with a skirt, trousers or jeans.  So it got me thinking about finding some stylish blouses. I'll be showing you another one I bought from next week.

A different take on leopard print with this pink blouse with green leopard print tones from POM Amsterdam. Over-40s style blog Is This Mutton? pairs it with burgundy velvet and silver.
The silver boots are cute aren't they?  I didn't think metallic boots were "a thing" this year because most of the retailers didn't seem to have any, but then about four silver pairs landed at Office so I'm replacing my old clunky silver boots with these sock boots.

Now it's time to show me what you've been wearing or experimenting with make-up wise. It's time for the #WowOnWednesday link up.



  1. You look gorgeous. Totally stylish. I cheat and get work clothes from charity shops sometimes. Excellent recycling. I've picked up totally new labelled shirts sometimes.

  2. Such a glamorous look with your sparkly skirt and boots! Love the M&S skirt xx Maria
