Outfit

While my family was away last week I was lucky enough to have the Fiat, which first made an appearance on my blog here when I participated in a blog collaboration with the girls from 'The Polished Edge.' This is my dream car, I am obsessed with it; the colour (especially since it's my favourite colour of this season as documented here), size and retro elements make it so perfect! I simply couldn't resist the opportunity to dress up in blue and take some pictures with the Fiat. It was great fun and it's even more exciting to drive this car when I match it. This duck egg blue cardigan is certainly one of my most worn pieces this winter; I've also worn it here and here (it's so versatile it even assisted me in looking like Snow White). In fact I seem to talk excessively about duck egg blue on my blog these days. There are so many different looks I can create with it but, for ages, monochrome is an idea I've wanted to try. I'm drawn to this style right now and I think it would be fun to try it in other colours too (although I'm not always going to have a cute car to pair with my look!). This skirt is an item I haven't had too much wear out of in recent times. There's no specific reason except that I sometimes forget about items I've had for a long time; anyone remember it from last year which I posted here?  It's great to rediscover pieces in my own wardrobe. I also like it because I don't have many block coloured skirts and they are always so hard to find in the shops. Speaking of rediscovering items, this is the first time I've ever worn these earrings. I've had them for at least a year, forgetting until today that I even owned them. Isn't it the best when this happens? I wish it occurred more often and I could find a cat print dress with a peter pan collar in my apartment (unfortunately I don't like my chances on that happening!) As for the rest of my outfit, I've already written about so see my previous posts.  

Note: the Fiat is not mine

You've got a Fiat?!?! An awesomely colored Fiat?!?! I've never seen that color in the US. I want one soooo badly! I've been thinking about leasing one all year, but I don't want another bill to pay each month :/

I love how you've done lots of shades of blue here. You already know how I feel about that coat and shoes. I covet them!!!!

Cute car! I see the steering wheel is on the right hand side so I guess vehicles drive in the left side of the road in Australia? I haven't been out of the U.S..

I hadn't thought about colour coordinating outfits with a car but all of your pretty outfit pieces coordinate with the Fiat's colour beautifully. It's a lovely outfit.

Joyce said...

I love all the blue in this outfit! And ooooo those shoes are gorgeous:)

The matching-car-and-outfit look is just too cute:D You look great, Imogen. And I have items like your skirt too....stuff that I have but haven't worn in awhile. They're always a nice surprise when you find them in the closet:)

Shybiker said...

You look lovely. Your outfits are always so coordinated that I take notes on your selections. The shoes are terrific.

And the car! I love Fiats. I bought the Abarth last December and love it to pieces. This blue baby is sweet.

Ali Hval said...

Oh wow, you haven't worn that skirt for a long time, have you?? It's sooo cute! You've definitely got to drag it out more often. It's a lovely shade of blue and looks twirly to the max. :)

And how sweet is your cardigan? You're always dressed like such a pretty princess, Imogen.
