Plaid It Right :: Plaid Coat and Stud HeelsHi everyone,
How was your first week of March? Been busy myself honing in on my baking skills and more so, trying to organise some form of birthday party or get together for my boy who will be turning 8 yrs old soon. How quickly time flies and before you know it, he'd probably be wanting to spend more time with his friends than with me....sigh...
Am glad to see many of my fellow bloggers posting warmer Spring outfits out on their blogs and instagram posts and wish I could do the same however it's just been wet, rainy and foggy for the last 2 weeks here in Hong Kong. Depressing and almost suicidal to some I must say, as we hardly had a peep of sunray at all - let alone that the dehumidier is on overload mode at the moment.
So it's hard to get pictures done these couple of days but here's a recent look I had put together which I love and had good comments about when it was posted recently on IG.
I love navy and this dress was perfect when the weather was initially warming up.
Love how this beautiful black and white plaid coat drapes with a wide boat neck open collar and falls open into a circular shape skirt. Made me feel for a split second like the Duchess of Cambridge - where I have always admired the beautiful full skirt coats she often wears. Feeling regal, I decided to pair this look with an elegant pair of heels to bring out the full on femininity of this outfit.
The stretchable fabric of this dress doesn't hug you at the wrong places yet instead creates a slim silhouette skimming the curves of one's hips. Perfect!
As for jewelry, I wanted to go bold and slightly loud given chain necklaces are so IN for spring and that the studs on the heels add that rock chic element to this outfit. So why not take that further into the necklace.
Accessories often make or break the outfit. My style has always been slightly bolder and more inclining to sexy than sweet. Do share how you would pair accessories with this outfit to suit your style ?
