Outfit: Blue Lace

 

IMG_4358

This has been my most worn outfit for the last couple of months so it’s very fitting that it makes an appearance here. It’s from one of my favourite ever Kitten D’Amour collections called Forget Me Not. You may remember that I posted the dress version here and here.  I loved it so much that I also decided to buy the shirt and the skirt. That just shows how much I love the collection because I try my best to minimise most collections to one piece. I even have to show some self control to refrain from buying even more! There’s another two dresses in the collection which are almost identical which I could easily add to my wardrobe (but luckily I’m not going to spend the money). The outfit I am wearing here is actually not a dress but matching separates. That’s another reason I wanted the two pieces because I don’t have any other matching separates. The advantage of the shirt is that, unlike the dresses, it has a peter pan collar- what is there not to love about a peter pan collar!?! I’ve had so many compliments on this look and, based on this, it seems to be my most vintage outfit ever. The skirt is also amazing to wear with a variety of different tops. I haven’t worn the top separately but hopefully I will at some point. The shirt has a pale blue undertop and I’m looking forward to substituting this with different coloured undertops soon. Tonight I went to kmart and purchased undertops in grey, peach, pale green and yellow (wish they had the pink and the purple in my size) so I can’t wait to experiment with them. This is going to be a good test of who actually reads my posts because my outfit is not a dress. My pink accessories are also from Kitten D’Amour. The bag is a recent purchase and the hair flowers were a Christmas gift. The shoes are quickly becoming a most worn candidate too. As with all B.A.I.T Footwears I have, they are very comfortable. Unfortunately I’ve been very much restricted to flats in recent months due to my ankle injury. However, it’s not too bad when I have these adorable flats.

What else has been happening in my life? I’ve fallen into a routine of going to the pool most days after work and then watching tennis late in to the night. I’m so incredibly tired all the time but, given that the tennis is only for another week, I must make the most of it. Swimming has been a positive influence in my life. It’s kept me distracted from a couple of issues at work which I don’t want to think about. It’s been a sense of community and achievement. I was even talked into a 5.30am swimming training session last Friday which I said I’d never do, not in a million years. But finally having people to do swimming with, after almost a lifetime of having no friends who are into sport, it’s worth it. Still haven’t recovered from the early wake up though and it was three days ago!

  1. Oh I just love peter pan collars! And I definitely would have thought this was a dress. That's wonderful you have been finding such joy in swimming. It definitely makes a difference when you have buddies that enjoy the same activities as you do 🙂

  2. Hahaha…everyone thinks it's a dress! 😀 They're lovely together, and I bet they would look great as separates too:)
    Anyhoo, so awesome to read about your swimming. That's a great way to start the day, even though it is super early:)

  3. Blue is such a pretty color, Imogen. This dress looks feminine and very nice on you. You can check out the wedding dress that Jess DIDN'T CHOOSE on my post today if you'd like. I know how much you love fashion. I think it's great that you are going to the pool after work. Swimming can be so therapeutic. I miss swimming. 🙂

    Have a sweet afternoon.

  4. So fabulously pretty! I would absolutely live in a dress like that, too. From the romantic lace to the cheerful colour, it's a knockout frock all around!

    Big hugs & happy last week of January wishes,

  5. This outfit looks lovely, beautiful lace design. I like that you can wear it as a whole outfit or mix it up (I did read your post!) Beautiful hair design at the back too! Hope everything at work goes well for you, and your not too overtired from all that late night tennis!
