Grey & Neon Paint Splatters

After my first foray into patterned jeans last week, there's no stopping me! Check out these grey & neon beauties by Penny Black - from a gorgeous wee boutique in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, called 'Design'. They were reduced to £28!
Loving the mix of colours and as a big fan of grey, I knew I could style them a few different ways. Today I paired them with a Sportmax t-shirt, also from Design. It's got gorgeous embellishment down the front and is a great basic t-shirt that could be worn day or night. It was reduced to £30 in Design's amazing sale.
I also tried it with my Room 31 grey swing jacket:
and finally with my neon Miss Captain sweatshirt that I picked up at Pearl's Clothes Party. Love how it picks out the neon in the jeans..

I fear I may be getting a tad obsessed with patterned trousers...could this be a sign of mid life crisis? I hope not...back to a less showy bottom half tomorrow. I'm facilitating at a corporate event for the next two days so will tone down the legs for fear of distracting the participants!

    1. I agree....have a few tops that would be great with it for night time. I didn't find them as easy to style for day-time, I have to say. But always good to try something completely different now and again :) x

  10. Not seen anything like those before so that's a refreshing change. I do like a pop of neon yellow (more so than neon pink)!

    It's also great to see you in some of the clothes you have previously featured and worn in a different way.

  11. Avril does it again, makes something I wouldnt even look at in a shop , look good.. The pattern would annoy me, I'd be trying to brush it away all the time. But on you it looks great. Like them with the neon jumper the best.

  12. I think I will have to leave them to ye younger ones also! It is great to buy something and find it goes with several other pieces in your wardrobe! Have a lovely week:)
