The weekend just gone was an eventful one – nothing too exciting happened, but it was definitely a weekend where I just got sh*t done!
As some of you may know, I am heading into surgery on Wednesday to have an ACL replacement on my right knee. Having had this before (on my left knee), I know far too well the pain, and intense rehab that goes into this sort of procedure. For the next two weeks I will be taking time off work to recover, which means I won’t be wearing any heels for a while!
During this time I will still be blogging, but it will all depend on how I feel. I have quite a few What I Wore outfits posts ready to go that I have already shot, so be prepared!
With the super sunny weather that graced Canberra on Sunday, I thought no better day than to whip out my white pants, and put a super fresh outfit together.
Having bought these Country Road pants back in June, I finally had a chance to wear them! As with any pairs of long pants, I had to get these tailored to fit – and I am very happy that I did, as they are now super snug, and fit in all the right places. What I love about a cropped pant is that they are suitable for the warmer weather. As the ankle is visible, and cropped pants are normally constructed from a lightweight material; they are perfect for any occasion.
A white tee will ALWAYS work no matter what the occasion, as it’s all about what you pair it with and what accessories you add. This Assembly Label tee is my ultimate go-to. It has a different fit to a normal tee, with its loose sleeves and relaxed fit along the hemline, and it hangs perfectly off the body.
I decided to pair the outfit with my new Seed heels, with their gold detailing. These mules are my new obsession. Not only do they have funky ringlet detailing on the front, they also have a block heel, and are super comfortable. Mules or heels that don’t have an ankle strap are the best sort of shoes to pair with copped pants, as they add a great balance to the look.
If you’re good with wearing all white (steer clear of pasta and other messy foods!), then definitely give an all white outfit a go. A tip, opt for nude or black shoes, so that the outfit doesn’t wash you out.
OTHER TIPS FOR WEARING ALL WHITE
– Never pair cream with white – as my Mum says “White and Cream should never be seen” – it’s true, it just doesn’t work!
– Make sure your white shades are as similar in shade as they can be;
– Ensure that your accessories don’t overdo the look. Wearing white on white itself is enough of a statement. If you’re adding too many other colours and tones, it defeats the purpose;
– Pair either nude, black or silver shoes with an all white outfit. Red’s, yellows, oranges and greens are a no no, and some blue shades will work too.
