I wasn't comfortable in this outfit at all on Wednesday. Think it shows in the photos too, just not a nice outfit. The top and skirt wouldn't sit nicely together at all, bad combination! Such a shame as I like the pieces separately.
The embroidered top is beautiful, the last of my pieces from the Jeanswest sale. It's difficult to make out in the photo, but it has an embroidered pattern on the top panel. Will try get a better picture next wear.
My Matches Fashion sale order arrived to take my mind off the bad outfit though! :) Did a little video reveal for you.
Last worn: black trench coat, checked skirt, patent flats, Balenciaga Rouille work. First time I've worn the top as it was a recent purchase.
Here's what I wore to work today:
Jumper: Supre cream waffle knit oversized jumper
Scarf: Alexander McQueen modal and cashmere skull scarf (new purchase)
Dress: French Connection 'pendragon panache' cap sleeve dress in 'winters day base'
Belt: Kmart thin gold glitter belt
Shoes: Wittner 'Mimi' heels in mushroom
Bracelets: the usual plus Chloe Paddington crystal charm bracelet and Indigo Rose Design waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
Bag: Marc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Fran bag with gold hardware in carob brown
In complete contrast to yesterday's outfit, I loved today's! This look is completely inspired by (or closely copied from!) Wendy from Thankfifi's outfit in this post, which she left in a comment for me as an amazing example of layering a jumper and dress when I asked for tips.
Wanted to wear this jumper, although it was a bit long, so I figured I could fold it up and the belt would keep it in place. It occasionally fell out through the day so was a little fussy to wear. Next time need to try it with a shorter top! Otherwise I really liked the layering, big thank you to Wendy for the inspiration! :)
Linking up in a few places today: What I wore to Work, What I wore Wednesday.
Last worn: cream jumper, French Connection Dress, Wittner heels, Marc Jacobs Fran. First time I've worn the scarf as it is a new purchase.
