What I Wore Wednesday

pleated poppy

Well, its been a while, mostly because I wasn't sure anyone was interested in seeing what I wore day in and day out. But I got a few emails asking if I could start doing it again, so here we are, yet again!! 

 I have been super inspired by the character Lemon Breeland in Hart of Dixie. I am just adoring her lady-like retro style, and am trying to incorporate more of that into my outfits, without looking quite as costumey/granny as Jamie King does playing her. You might have noticed the influence in a few of my past outfits (like my tie-neck blouse ones), but this is the first one where I consciously went for a retro vibe (while still keeping it somewhat modern!).

Blue boucle tweed coat: Basque by Myer
Purple merino sweater: Sportscraft
Fuchsia jeans: Gap
Purple and fuchsia wool scarf: Sportscraft
Grey patent oxford heels: Talbots

 You know I love my jersey dresses, and pretty much live in them in summer, but I love them in winter, too! Still easy to put on, and with tights and boots, they are just as warm as a long sleeved tee and jeans, and just as comfy, as well.

Navy, white and black jersey dress: Basque by Myer
Black suede boots: Talbots
Gold pendant and necklace: Linneys

 Another shot at ladylike retro, this time with a classic twinset, updated in a vibrant fuchsia. this might just be my fave colour at the moment, can't you tell!

Blue and grey tweed pencil skirt: Sportscraft
Black suede boots: Talbots
Grey pearl necklace: Anneliese
Enamel bangles: Coach

 Today, I did not leave the house, and this is a perfect example of a lounging at home outfit for me. While there is always a place for tracksuits and yoga pants, and you will sometimes even find me in them, I prefer to wear things a bit nicer. You never know when someone will drop around, or when you will need to pop out, plus, your husband and kids are around you, and don't they deserve a nice outfit as much as the strangers at the supermarket? These slippers are one of the favourite things I own; they are so comfy, warm and toasty!

Navy and white floral shirt: Old Navy
Tuxedo stripe jeans: Ann Taylor
Wool felt slippers: Ekohaus at Etsy

If fuchsia is my favourite colour, then purple comes a pretty close second, and this blouse with its different shades of purple and navy is one of my favourite pieces.

Navy cotton cardigan: Lands End Canvas
Purple, navy and white blouse: Boden
Wide leg jeans: Ann Taylor
Grey suede heels: Ann Taylor
Lace headband: Diva

 Weekends are for comfort and lazing and lounging, and what could be more comforting than a velvet cardigan over worn in jeans?

Cut velvet cardigan: Flower Clothing
Black tank: Basque by Myer
Bootleg jeans: Gap
Black loafers: Louenhide
Key necklace: House of Harlow

Winter has definitely arrived and is there anything better than wrapping yourself up in a warm and snuggly scarf? When it comes in purple and fuchsia?  Nothing!

Purple merino sweater: Sportscraft
Bootleg jeans: Gap
Purple and fuchsia wool scarf: Sportscraft
Navy denim and suede ballet flats: Lands End
Enamel bangles: Coach

The final retro inspired outfit for the week! I am truly in love with this one which is why I keep repeating the elements over and over!

Navy and grey tweed coat: Basque by Myer
Navy merino sweater: J Crew
Wide leg jeans: Ann Taylor
Shield brooch: won at a raffle
Grey suede heels: Ann Taylor

This is a new purchase in the recent sales the department stores have been having. Its a lot shorter than I am used to wearing, but with flats and opaques, I think it is OK.

Wooden bead necklace: Witchery
Horn cuff: Mai Tai Collection
Patent slippers: Talbots
