Pattern Mixing – Animal Print Blouse and Statement Skirt

Blouse- charity shop
Skirts- ASOS Africa
Shoes – Dream in Green
Necklace – Etsy

I love pattern mixing but have in the past tended to stick to fairly safe choices of different florals or polka dots or stripes. For today I decided to try something a little more adventurous by combining a statement skirt with an animal print blouse and  bright tights. I am not sure if this was taking things a step too far, I am sure I got a few strange looks when I popped into town, but then again I don’t usually bother too much about stuff like that plus it is Halloween, so slightly scary outfits are allowed aren’t they?

I hope you have had  a lovely weekend. Despite looking forward to an extra hour in bed on Sunnday, I ended up getting up a 5.30am with my daughter who hasn’t yet grasped the concept of clocks going back or having a lie in on the weekend. I did get to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon wandering around a vintage fair in Bath (more on that very soon) followed by a delicious roast dinner made by Mr Style Eyes. What did you get up to?

For those that have haven’t read my previous post, I have started a new group/ platform/ community – Ethical Fashion Bloggers. It is for any fashion bloggers with an interest in ethical fashion including vintage, charity shopping and DIY. I am really pleased that some of my favourite Fashion Bloggers have already joined. If you would like to join, you can find out more on I will be publishing full details of our first outfit challenge very soon.

November is the fourth birthday of Style Eyes Fashion Blog, I can’t quite believe that I have been blogging this long, but I have really enjoyed myself and hope that my blogging has improved a bit over the years. To celebrate, I will be holding a competition with some great ethical fashion prizes, the competition will launch next Monday so please stop by and check it out.

Finally, I have had some good news! I have been accepted as a Fashion Blogger for Oxfam. I think my first post will be posted quite soon, I will share it with you once it is live. Those who read this blog regularly will know that I love Oxfam for buying clothes so I am really excited to get involved.  

Happy Halloween – Are you doing anything fun (or scary)?

With warmest wishes
