Outfit

ddfffdsIt was wonderful to have the opportunity to take some outfit pictures on the weekend because I've wanted to show you these pieces for awhile now. I also have a set of photos with my new light blue coat which I'll post soon. For now I'll leave you with a preview featuring the fabulous kitty cat print lining. As we all know I have a rather extensive cardigan collection (since I find Alannah Hill cardigans irresistible), but of all my cardigans this is probably the most unique. I've rarely seen anything so pretty, delicate and original. The sweet little ballerinas are beautiful, as are the exquisite buttons. I like to think the rest of my outfit displays subtle elements of the ballerina theme through my signature hairstyle and my skater skirt. In accordance with my recent love for both yellow and duck egg blue, I thought it would be fun to style this cardigan in a way which brings out those colours. My outfit seemed completely transformed when I highlighted the yellow by wearing these amazing heels.They have proven to be one of the most popular items in my wardrobe, ever since my sister bought them for me last Christmas (posted here). My lovely earrings which I received courtesy of Spark Jewelry complement my cardigan. I'm very happy with these statement earrings and I intend to wear them on multiple occasions. I'll probably wear this outfit, in its entirety, to work on Friday. I'm finding that my wardrobe fits so well with te workplace; and if there is ever an outfit which excessively pushes the boundaries, I'll save it for casual Fridays. 

Work is going well. It has changed my whole life in the best possible way. It's provided me with positivity and life direction, and self belief that I've so desperately been lacking for many years. I'm so lucky to have found this particular job: I never expected to like it this much. Even though a life involving work, travel and sleep is exhausting, it is all worth it. There is still a lot to learn but this is the most motivated I've felt for years. I've never been more grateful for an opportunity in my entire life; it means the world to me. I'll write about my job more in up coming posts, but for now I must have some sleep. Goodnight all!

I think you deserve some sort of award for colour combination because your outfits are always spot on! It's a skill I've yet to master. xxx

Gorgeous: elegant, colorful and creative. If I could live as a woman, I'd dress exactly as you. Of course, I'd have to hire you first to teach me how!

Ali Hval said...

Oh, Imogen, I love how you can always shine through the dark times and be positive about any situation. It's probably my favorite thing about you. You've just always got a good grasp on what's right, you know that? :) Keep truckin' along, lovely lady!

I adore the yellow and light blue together. Wow! When I was little, my entire room was light yellow and blue just like this outfit, so it feels rather nostalgic for me. Your color combos are always so perfect and unexpected, but work so very well! I love those earrings and your pretty little cardigan. :)

Maddie Magpie said...

I am IN LOVE with this cardigan!! And love the yellow stilettos too - I'm a big fan of colour coordinating like you, life is so much more fun with colour :) x

To be honest, I did not expect the print. When I saw the first photo, I thought it was a painting or something else.
Lovely outfit!!!The pop of yellow is so pretty!

That's wonderful news that you're finding your job enjoyable. I knew you had the capability to do whatever job you got well, but finding jobs where one's capabilities are utilized and appreciated is excellent. Your outfit is lovely. I like the ballerinas on your Alannah Hill cardigan and your hair looks perfect as always. The contrasting Dangerfield skirt, Zu heels and Spark Jewelry earrings complement each other beautifully. I hope you had a nice sleep and dreams.
