I’ve always had a fondness for A-Line dresses and this one ticked all the boxes in terms of length and cut. Each season Karen Walker does a sweat-shirting range and I immediately fell in love with this print (which meant that I also bought this dress too!) The second dress is a beautiful soft viscose with a cute collar and paper bag waist. It’s ‘work’ worthy and I’m finding that anything with sleeves is useful as the weather gets colder. Having two dresses in the same print means that I never feel like wearing both in one week so I alternate between them. I’ve worn this A-line dress with these boots and my red chunky heeled Kobe Husk ankle/boot sandals (which I’ve been meaning to include in a post sometime). As for these old-skool leather shoes, I bought them in London years back and held onto them. I’ve been desperate to find some casual white trainers or Oxfords but have had no luck so far. I can’t seem to find trainers small enough to fit me, so on this particular weekend I resorted to these, having pulled them out from under the house. And the jacket–I love the detail with the contrasting sleeves, although it’s a bit snug if I try to wear a jumper underneath, and it’s proving not quite long enough to wear on our horizontal rain-ridden Wellington days.
And lastly, I’ve also been assessing my wardrobe lately and realise it is completely remiss of ‘staples’ like T-shirts, (and as many of you know, not all T-shirts are created equal). The ones I’ve tried on are too long-line and almost look like a tunic on me, while others are just too ‘fitted’ but ill-fitting on my proportions, but I think I might have found a solution and I’ll give Commoners a go.
Have a great Easter!
