Let me just start off saying the rain today was insane. It was definitely a gumboots sorta day. I contemplated taking a bus from the city but the rain had eased to a light sprinkle by the time I had arrived. CRAZY.
So having worn solid blocks of colour for most of my life, I find myself lusting over patterns and reaching for them more often these days. One of my favourite jumpers in my regular winter rotation is a J.Crew polka dot and stripe little number. Now let’s make it clear, I’m on window shopping mode O-N-L-Y! :)
I saw this Portmans stripe skirt and top ensemble on one of their marketing advertisements and fell in love with the entire outfit. I adore the off the shoulder top. Girly without being too girly. If it were summer, and if I could pull off crop tops, I’d be all over this.
Continuing with the stripe theme, this Country Road stripe top intrigues me. I love the bold/fine line contrast. I’m always struggling to find pretty looking long sleeve tops for winter.
And my other favourite pattern of the moment – floral. I can’t go past a bold, floral print. The tangerine in this Cue dress makes it all the more special, and it just scream spring. Anything sparkly or material with a slight sheen always seems to capture my undivided attention.
And finally just for fun, this flirty neon Gorman skirt will bring life back to your monochromatic office wear. I love how it looks completely different up close to how it appears from afar. Plus it’s lilac, and I love all shades of purple.
