Fashion Friday: At The In-Between

Spring is here! So that means less coats. I don’t like carrying my coat around but I don’t have a loose-fitting jacket that fits as comfortably. Most of my jackets are slim fitting, and I don’t always like to wear tight jackets. It’s nice when you are able to walk outside without one.

I feel like there is a state of confusion in my outfit because spring usually invites bright and ‘happy’ colours, and there is little of that in my outfit. It’s like I’m still in between seasons, what with the sheer tights and the dark colours. Although spring invites those happy colours, a lot of my wardrobe is black or dark!

The only hints of colour are in my nails, lip colour and the bangle I’m wearing. My nails are a shade of faint orange, the coral-like colour from my last Helene Jewelry box. Both my thumbnails and the nails on my fourth fingers have a layer of gold glitter on them. I thought it was a nice accent for the gold ring and bangle – also from a previous Helene Jewelry box.

I generally like black pencil skirts, but they are really annoying when they ride up, like this one. I like wearing tube skirts because they fit snugly and tightly hug your body. I also like waisted skirts that flare outwards because they actually sit there on your waist and don’t move. It’s the pencil skirts that are annoying. I’ve been trying to look into it and I’ve read that wearing pantyhose or tights can sometimes cause the skirt to move around. But I really like wearing pantyhose especially in winter, so I guess I’ve just turned my affinity for pencil skirts into a massive hate. I don’t know. 😛

The top has a style that buttons up a little tightly at the neck. I like the print because it’s not too bold. It is a bit sketchy, and not symmetrical. This is good because I think I look sort of bad in geometric patterns because I have a slender frame.

The shoes are from How not to hate pink, and may have been featured in other Fashion Fridays I don’t recall. I don’t wear them as much as I used to because I prefer higher heels now. And then flats on other days. 😛

I got the pearl earrings at a small pop-up kiosk in a shopping centre. I think they are an imitation of Christian Dior earrings because they have ‘Dior’ printed on the backing of the pearl. The earrings have a bit of weight to them, and the wires, though fairly thick, won’t withstand a lot of force so you have to be gentle when you put them on.

The name of this outfit is a song by old Brisbane band Blame Ringo, which included Pete and Ross from Hey Geronimo, but pre-Hey Geronimo.

LOVE that lipstick colour, it’s gorgeous! Suits you 🙂 I like the top as well.
The weather was beautiful in Adelaide today as well, and will continue into the weekend. Hallelujah, spring is here! (for now 😛). Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks Jess! I used to feel weird about wearing bright colours but I like this colour a lot because it brings a bit of colour to my face. 🙂

It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful weekend! It’s super sunny in Sydney today.

I’ve been looking up to you for accessories lately, they’re always SO pretty and classy! I LOVE them ♥️ Your nails and lipstick colour suit you so well. 🙂

I'm glad you're about to experience lovely warm weather over there, it's predicted cold, chilly and possibly snow next week here 😉 I actually prefer wearing coats, I like walking around feeling like I have a portable blanket.

Thank you Pauline! My favourite place to buy accessories from is The Peach Box – they ship worldwide for free if you spend over $50.

I don’t mind coats but if I have to take it off it just feels like a heavy load. I think we’ve had our share of cold weather already. I am told I should be glad it doesn’t snow here. 😛

Awesome, I love this. 😄 The earrings are so pretty. Hopefully they do last a little while. ♥️

Are the photos with the new camera? 😧

Thanks! No they aren’t – Seb usually takes photos with his own camera. 🙂 When Nick photographs my Fashion Friday posts he usually uses mine or his. Perhaps in the next one. 😄

Looking good as always! I like how your style is, like you put, in-between season 😄 The outfit is very non-springlike, but everything else is great for spring. The subtle amount of colours you used struck a good balance with your outfit.

Of course, your accessories are awesome! I love how you combined the Helene bracelet. It actually goes well with your nails. I would have never consider those two colours to complement well, but they do 😄

Lovely Fashion Friday, Georgie! Can’t wait for the next one 😊

Hooray for fashion friday! haha My closet is also full of dark toned clothes, but that’s ok, i stillbelieve that black goes right with whatever season haha.Love the color of your nails!

Best regards,
Ariane

You look gorgeous spring colors or not! I can totally see people wearing similar outfits to that even in the summer! I mainly believe in seasonal colors when you’re “doing seasonal things” like no black at the beach and don’t wear bright red when snowboarding. 😆 I share that irk about pencil skirts – I own one which I wear with long shirts and they ride up constantly. I have to wear tights with it too because it’s a winter skirt!
