What I Wore Wednesday


I know today is Friday, but with school holidays, surely I have an excuse for running late!! Plus, this is two weeks worth of pics, since I was manically busy in the last week of school and forgot to post.

Wednesday: Today was the absolutely quintessential spring day! It was sunny and warm, but not too warm. My perfect kind of day, and this was a perfect outfit.

Camel merino sweater: Sportscraft
Skinny bootleg jeans: Gap
Horn cuff: Mai Tai Collection
Giraffe print flats: Lands End

Thursday: Today was another beautiful day, but was unexpectedly much, much cooler, so I spent most of the day freezing my behind off!! These jeans are new from Gap, and I am in love – the skinny bootcut is so flattering, and the denim is really nice. I also have them in fuchsia and lemon, but I hope they bring them out in another rinse – that is how much I love them!

Chiffon print blouse: Old Navy
Skinny bootcut jeans: Gap
Green plastic bangle: Myer
Red retro flats: Naturaliser
Wooden bead necklace: upcycled piece by me

Friday: After the lovely spring days of the past week, today was back to full on winter, with a massive storm. I went to a school mum’s luncheon at the country club, and was amazed to see people playing golf in this weather. I am not understating things when I say it was raining cats and dogs!

Fuchsia merino sweater: Sportscraft
Black ponte pants:Lands End
Leopard print heels: Lands End 
Pearl, amethyst and amber necklace: Linneys
Sunday: Back to a warm and sunny, and with an invitation to the opening of the new gastropub at the relaunched Crown Casino. I truly hate events like this – no dress code is given, and really, unlike the men who can get away with a shirt, jacket and jeans, it is so much more complicated for women. Most seemed dressed in variations of what I was wearing – top, skinny jeans and heels, but there were some in cocktail dresses, and some even more casual that me.
Navy and white peplum blouse: Ruche
Skinny jeans: Ann Taylor
Red skinny belt: Talbots
Gold medallion necklace: Linneys
Leopard print heels: Lands End
Wednesday: Back to cold and wet again. I hate weather like this – I really wish it would make up its mind and stay cold or stay hot. This back and forth drives me nuts! This outfit was inspired by one of my pins on Pinterest; I loved the idea of a pop of colour against the navy.
Navy wool sweater: J Crew
Skinny jeans: Ann Taylor
Horn cuff: Mai Tai Collection
Orange patent tote: Kate Spade
Orange jersey scarf: JannysGirl @ Etsy
Navy ballet flats: Lands End

Friday: If you are curvy and/or busty, then you would know that wearing a shirt under a sweater can look really bulky, and make you look larger than you really are. I love the look of a crisp collar peaking our from a sweater, which is why I am in love with SkinnyShirts. I wrote a review about a year ago and I am still impressed with mine!

Snow leopard skinny shirt: Skinny Shirt
Purple short sleeved sweater: Boden
Skinny bootcut jeans: Gap
Black leather tote: Kate Spade
Silver leaf earrings: Verite
Black leather heels: Ferragamo

Sunday: Today was beautiful and sunny and we spent it at the annual Royal Show (like a State Fair) and had an absolute blast. The kids loved all the animals, the fireworks were great, and there was just so much to see and do. Today I still wanted to look nice, but it needed to be practical as well. There was lots of walking, it was hot, and this outfit held up well. The bag was a great choice, too. This is an old nappy (diaper) bag which I haven’t used for a long time, but it is super practical with lots of pockets and a long cross body strap, which none of my other bags have. Now that I’ve rediscovered it, I think you’ll be seeing it a lot more.

Blue print jersey dress: Lands End
Assorted bangles: Trina Turk, J Crew & Myer
White leather nappy bag: Storksak
Silver leaf earrings: Verite

Blue flats: Naturaliser

See you all next week!!
