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).
Sorry to go a bit MIA last week. It was one of those I-barely–have-time-for-a-toilet-break type of weeks. CRAZY busy. Anyhoo… I wore this outfit out to dinner before said week. Loving the new sequin skirt.
Here’s to a great week – with plenty of time for toilet breaks.
No longer is metallic and sequins just for night. I think the easiest way to make this flashy fabric daytime appropriate is to pair it with natural fabrics like cotton and linen. Also please don’t pile on the jewellery – wearing sequins is all the bling you need.
My love for trench coats runs deep. This crisp white number is my latest crush. Please don’t be put off by the stark white – it’s fabulous and can be very flattering. So perfect with summer bights now but also equally fab with dark winter hues – including over all black. I would play around with belts. I wouldn’t play around with my food though – this white trench requires polite eating (or at least a giant napkin). If you’ve got the legs, try wearing it all done up as a dress.
Wearing: Veronika Maine jacket and skirt, Country road knit, JCrew belt, Witchery bag and earrings, Colette ring, Innui boots.
If you’re short like me – getting proportion right in your outfit is important. So when wearing this fitted maxi skirt I needed to wear a cropped shorter jacket to show off my waist and give the illusion of longer legs. Oh and heels always help.
This week I’m checking out the season treasures at Country Road. They’ve chosen to go down the pastel path with sweet shades of mint, melon, lavender and lemon.
Pretty jeans which come in a range of shades. As with all pastels – team them back with neutrals – cream, white and grey and tan accessories. No black please.
Pleats are also around again and I like this flirty midi length skirt. Keep in mind thatleats do add volume. In my opinion midi length only works with a heel – especially a wedge. Flats make the legs look a little stumpy and overall look a little frumpy. Just saying.
I love the sporty and casual aesthetic of this cropped trench. So easy to wear and it is the perfect neutral to wear with your pastels.
Well hello Friday – so nice to see you again. For this week’s Fab Friday Finds – we’re looking at knits:
If you are big busted and short-waisted (story of my life) then a deep V fine wool knit like this treasure from Countryroad is the way to go. Its cozy without being bulky and available in heaps of rad colours – like this delicious plum. Bless.
While I love the idea of a long draped cardi like this Zara one – so carefree and chic – in reality it can be hard to pull off unless you are fairly slim and have a bit of height on your side. If you carry your weight in your bottom half this style will just grab it in a very unflattering way. It also has the potential to look a little frumpy and bulky on us shorter folk.
A draped or ‘waterfall’ style cardi like this one is great at disguising a belly. This one from Ojay is a great basic colour which loves all the jewel tones around this season and of course your foundation colours like black, brown, navy – the whole gang. But you knew that already.
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?
