DD+ Outfit: Variations on a Theme

Can you tell I'm into white pants after my Louisa Ellis series? The ones in these pictures desperately need the expert hands of a tailor. I also vaguely remember a rule about wearing white after a specific holiday, but I couldn't help myself last week. With the weather dramatically dipping between chilly rain and sun, I've found these newly acquired trousers to be a great transitional item. I've always had a hard time dressing in the spring since most of my wardrobe consists of winter layers or summer pieces. Between my brown sweaters and dainty sandals, it's been tricky to pull together an outfit for work so I was delighted when this combination came together.



Side note: do I look a little ghoulish in these photos? I didn't quite realize how the contrast in the outfit and the background made me look supernatural. Speaking of ghastly images, did anyone watch Game of Thrones on Sunday? Melisandre gave birth to the slime from Fern Gully! That show is getting so intense, I don't know if I can keep watching!



Okay, back to the outfit post and seasonal dressing. How do you do it? Does anyone have pieces they only wear in the spring or is it just about layering? Do you have trouble with the constantly shifting temperatures in the "inbetween seasons"?

  1. Oh! Another game of thrones fan here. :D

    I'm currently trying to figure out cold weather clothes (being that Brazil is gradually getting colder). At the moment I'm layering but I also have a PB jacket on the way, which should be here in a couple of weeks. :D Would love to have a hoodies that actually fits a J cup. ;)

  2. I'm loving Game of Thrones right now. I can't wait until the end of the season so I can do a first and second season marathon.

    Prefer spring and fall, because the temperatures aren't unbearable. I would rather be cool than hot so I just go out in a t-shirt unless it's raining.

  3. White pants are a favorite of mine. I usually ruin at least 2 pair a season!!  Your outfits are adorable and perfect for the seasonal transition!!

  4. You are a brave girl, wearing white pants in the wilderness. For me, they'd stay white for about three minutes (if I don't move). Anyway though, cute pairings.

  5. Hi Brianna! I know, I worked outside (at a house and garden museum) and I did find a mysterious grey stain on the back of my white pants. They're kind of high maintenance but I love the look.

  6. Thanks, April! I love what you do with trousers in the summer too - I've seen the wide leg ones & have always wanted to try that.

  7. I know, tv marathons are so fun! That's how I watched the first season of Game of Thrones so now it's hard to watch one episode at a time. The drama and anticipation are so high when you watch episodes one right after another.

    I like the weather (most of the time) of spring and fall too. I wear t-shirts on my days off - now if only I could find a way to make them dressy enough for work!

  8. Hey June! I'm so addicted to Game of Thrones and the latest episode was full of Daenerys, who is my favorite character.

    I know, I find "top layers" -- sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets -- very hard to style for my body. I've always liked Pepperberry outerwear and noticed that those items don't get as much fanfare as their dresses and tops. I can't wait to hear how it works! :)

  9. I love the combo of the ruffle blouse under the sweater! I can never pull of ruffles near the chest but it looks great on you. I still tend to leave my white pants for warmer weather but if why not bend the rules? PS: Are the bangs new? I love them!

  10. Thanks, Sarah! The blouse and the camisole are both from J.Crew which is why, I suspect, they matched up so well through the neckline.

    I know, I felt like a such a rebel with my white pants in April. And yes, the bangs are new. I'm so happy you noticed!!
