After a hectic work-week, I spent the weekend taking it slow.
Played around with some new purchases.
Cafe hopped. That cheesecake was delish.
And kept outfits in neutral territory (outfit post coming)
How was your weekend?
Wearing: Witchery jacket and bag, Old Navy Tee, countryroad skirt, Wittner heels, Sportsgirl sunglasses.
Remember this skirt? It’s certainly getting a workout. For this ensemble I wore it with a casual military jacket and simple white tee to tone down the sequins for Sunday brunch. Yes I was still way over dressed (story of my life).
Have you got anything on-repeat in your wardrobe?

I wore this over the weekend. I felt like wearing some of my fave items. Together. This was the result – quite a layered look. I kept it flattering by balancing out the loose layers with a fitted stripe tee, slim cut jeans and heels. Also the jacket helped define the waist with the drawstring detail. There’s something about lots of bangles that feels good. And a bit cool.

Don’t mind me – just here posing in a public garden, looking up at the heavens. The things I do for an outfit shot! We’re having some gorgeous Autumn weather in the nation’s capital. Hope you had a great weekend too

I wore this outfit a couple of Fridays ago. This is my version of a fairly smart casual Friday outfit. I love how the casual cargo jacket dresses down the black and white. The leopard heels add some fun. The messy hair wasn’t planned but I guess it fits with the whole casual vibe, right?
What do you wear for casual Friday?
Maxi dresses are a staple in many ladies wardrobes in summer – but what to do with it when the temperature drops? Layering is the key – try a cargo jacket and boots or what about a knit and belt combo over the dress? You’re welcome.

Cargo style jackets such as this one have been around for a while and continue to be a big hit with international style bloggers (here, here and here). I’m not usually into such casual pieces for myself but I think I finally understand the appeal: it’s so versatile. It also helps to bring a bit of attitude to your outfit – kind of the same affect as a great denim jacket. Though a fairly casual piece I look forward to smartening it up for work with a white shirt, black pencil skirt and ankle boots. Why I think this style works is it is slim-lined, does not contain too many pockets – which can create unwanted bulk – and importantly, it has a draw cord at the waist making this piece more feminine and flattering. How do you wear your cargo pieces?
