WIW : Cropped Sweater

Hi Ladies,

I have a confession!  I have shopped a lot in recent weeks, mainly due to birthday money:)  So there may be some posts with new goodies, which could be a nice change from the "same old things" I have been posting;)

Yesterday I received an order from Metalicus and I am thrilled to report each item (4 in total) are 'perfecto'.  The item I was particularly excited about was the Long Sleeve Loose Knit Cropped Sweater.  9 Kilos ago it wasn't a good look and I chose not to purchase it.  Now it just fits so much better and has a nice fluid line to it. It is a 'one size fits all'.  

For work today, I wore new skinny pants that have a waxed finish. They almost look like leather.  They are a pull on, elastic waist and are incredibly comfortable.  Kind of a relaxed legging.  Then I added my Brown Sugar cobalt blouse (this is a couple of years old now) and then layered the cropped sweater over the blouse.  Trusted Hush Puppy ankle boots and a silver pendant on leather strap.

This was a comfortable, and I hope, stylish work outfit.  I did pop a black boyfriend style blazer on for the commute and a meeting I attended.

The sweater proved to be pleasantly surprising in that it is soft and light weight, a blend of cotton and silk, yet added just the right amount of warmth in my very cold office.  I love it so much I think I might wear it again tomorrow lol.

Pic #3 is Master 12!  It was Wacky Wednesday at school today and the theme was the 1960's.  I tie dyed the tshirt he is wearing and pulling a costume together was all done last minute and proved to be a bit of a drama.  So I was thrilled when I got home to find he had won a prize for his costume... phew.

Thanks for looking and all feedback and thoughts much appreciated.

xxx Deborah

    LOL!  Love Master 12's ensemble!  I can see why he won a prize.

    Your cropped sweater is a great piece for versatile layering.  I can imagine it becoming a workhorse.  Brilliant with the cobalt blouse!

    I love your layering Deb. It's like you do magic with layers!!! Because they almost ALWAYS look horrid on me. I love the combination of cobalt and black, it's fresh and sharp and one of my favourites.

    Master 12 looks pretty cool!

    LOVE Master 12s 60s outfit! He is channelling his mama's style genius for sure! 

    Your outfit is brilliant, too! Great news on the cropped sweater being a good fit now. Brava on the hard work to get there!

    So many great things...  How you look, the new clothes, the ability you have to conceive then pull of these layered looks, and of course, Master 12's outfit!

    That sweater is lucious, I think those pants are pretty awsome too. I just love seeing your wiw's.
    Masters costume, great job! He looks so cute, and authentic, thanks to his creative mom.
    Wow! 9 kilos, that some pretty serious loss.

    The costume is excellent, it looks like something you'd come up with, just the essential details perfectly executed. Even in costume, he also looks perfectly groomed and neat, just like you!
    You look fantastic, good job on the weight loss !! I would never have guessed there was a Hush Puppy factor in your outfit hahaha you always look expensive!
