How to Wear Rose Prints – Casual

Another in the ongoing series of How to Wear. Today it is How to Wear Rose Prints – Casual. Of course, it also works with our Rose Month Theme!

This is actually what I wore for the weekend outing to Clunes with the Fashion Mister. The outfit yesterday was after a quick change…in the car…behind a building! Decided to try to take advantage of the sun and get a couple looks photographed. Which meant really pretending I was a model and changing very slyly while trying not to freeze to death because of the cold! The Fashion Mister was good enough to go play look-out for me. Not that I think we had a plan of what to do should anyone actually come our way.

The Look: Pretty sure you have seen all of these pieces before, just never all together. Hopefully this is a little more proof that my wardrobe is NOT that huge and that I do a fair amount of mixing and matching. You’ll remember that the skirt was an op-shop buy and I love that not only is it a blue rose print but that it is a white denim skirt…classic! The shirt is a short-sleeved denim shirt that I DIY beaded the placket to give it some personality last year, and the jacket is the one I purchased from H & M a couple of years ago that I honestly wear ALL the time. So none of the core pieces are new.

The Accessories: It’s autumn and it’s cold but I have 20 something pairs of open-toe shoes so my go to trick, wear them with tights! In this case I really played up the contrast by having the grey ribbed tights with the electric blue cork-heeled wedges. The big white shell earrings and a mix of blue, silver and white jewelry keep everything working together. Then the old stand-by handbag – the classic black quilted bag.

By the way, it’s just over two months until I head to Hong Kong for my birthday and splurge on a Chanel quilted handbag! But who’s counting!!
