So, it’s been a bit of a hectic week, can you tell? And the weather hasn’t been that pleasant here. This week, the lovely Kelly at Kiwi Womens Style blogged about transitional clothing. I have several pieces of clothing I wear across the seasons…you have seen my floral dress, my Robyn Matheson dress and my floral jacket – all these items make great transitional pieces. I do away with the merinos and boots, replace with cotton t-shirts or other suitable items of clothing and ta da, done! I think I have quite a good transitional wardrobe and am quite skilled at making items work for multiple seasons.
A new combo I have tried to transition my floral jacket into a more summery look, is a pink t-shirt, my fabulous necklace from cloud nine design and my new shoes.
If you recall, last week, I mentioned that I was ready for Summer to be here. Based on the weather we have been experiencing yesterday and today…I believe we can officially say that we are previewing Summer. I’m loving getting into all my Summer clothes and nothing says Summer to me more than a pair of shorts! Shorts, tees, sunnies and open toed shoes define a relaxed summer feel to me…but they aren’t the only items in my wardrobe for Summer.
Today, after conquering Mt Kaukau. I wore some firm favourites from last Summer. I just love the way this top takes a denim shorts and singlet top from bog standard beach/garden/park wear to something I can go shopping in.
Denim shorts (Jeans West), Pink singlet top, Pink floral wrap top (both from Farmers) and my fabulous Pink, Orange and Red wedges (Banks Shoes)
And yes, my toenails are now a lovely shade of Red! Now, I just need to soak up some rays and work on my skin colour just a little.
