What I Wore Wednesday

pleated poppy

Spring has sprung!! While we are still having rainy, stormy days here in Perth, we are having more and more sunny days - some of them could even be called warm. Flowers have started to bloom, you can see green buds everywhere, and the days are noticeably longer - it is just delightful! As for fashion, layers are really coming in handy and the preppier side of my closet is winning out.

This weather just screams nautical, don't you think? I love the look of Breton tops, but have never found one that suits me; they are usually bateau necked which is not great on a larger bust. This knit, while not a Breton exactly, still gives me the look while being much more flattering on my shape. Paired with dark denim and red patent flats, I've got a pulled together casual look perfect for my lifestyle and shape.

Striped knit: Sportscraft
Boot cut jeans: Gap
Red patent flats: Witchery
Charm bracelets: Pandora

While the weather is still in-between, darker colours still look appropriate, especially when lightened up with a hit of florals. It's hard to see in the pic, but the blouse underneath is a lovely floral on a navy background - it's great now with dark jeans and a light weight black jacket, but will be wonderful with white jeans or a denim skirt further into spring.

Floral blouse: Old Navy
Black lightweight jacket: CaBI
Slim cut jeans: Ann Taylor
Black booties: Wittner
Charm bracelets: Pandora

I needed this knit trench in the morning, but by 10 am it was warm enough to wander around in a short sleeved tee. Shame I was inside most of the day!

Black tee: Gap
Black ponte pants: Ann Taylor
Camel knit trench: CaBI
Gold necklace: Marc Jacobs
Black wedge booties: Wittner

It was very cold today, so out came multiple layers and cord pants, hopefully for the last time! If you like the look of a collared shirt under a knit, but don't like the bulk, I highly recommend these Skinny Shirts - they have a cotton collar (and cuffs on their long sleeve version), but the body is a slinky camisole type of knit, giving a really sleek, smooth line.

Blue shirt: Skinny Shirt
Blue sweater: Sportscraft
Paisley cords: Sportscraft
Black wedge booties: Wittner

Spring totally brings out my preppy side, and this outfit is preppy and nautical, even better. You can't see clearly, but the tee has a really fun anchor print all over it. Unfortunately, I washed it with something (still can't figure out what) that left highly visible blue/black smudges all over it, so it's now relegated to housework clothes :(

Anchor tee: Sportscraft
Printed jeans: Old Navy
Navy linen blazer: Sportscraft
Gold initial necklace: C Wonder
Brown loafers: Louenhide

See you all next week!!
