2013 Week 16: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

Hooray for cooler temperatures, long sleeves, heavier fabrics, dressing up more, good times and nights out. As always there has been so much going on here in the MVC house. Our past week and in particular our past weekend has been a busy one and both Ben and I were able to indulge in some individual time out. It's rare we get time together but it's also important that we have our own separate time out to and that we did. Sunday night I headed out with some of the gorgeous mummas from my ABA group for a yummy Indian dinner. Because it was a rare night out for me, of course it had to be an occasion for a frock, and this one was perfect for the cooler night temperatures.

I love, love, love this dress. I don't normally do dresses in black or black background to it. But the floral in this dress you can see has so many delicious colours in it to play up to, that it's hard not to love it.

Moving on to what one wears for a quick step out to the local op shop. I know you think I'm lying when I say quick trip. Maybe not so quick! I wore the dress you may remember seeing before but I've styled it for the slightly cooler temps. I was a little uncertain at first about the detail on my shoulders and how it worked with the overall look. But heck sometimes I think you've just got to go with it and see what the reaction is. So out we went and, compliments were given, so polka dots and strips with sparkly shoulders are a win, so there you go.
Dress - 1980's polka dot overall dress - eBayStriped Tee - op shopped
Brooch - I know she's getting lots of blog outing but I love her - I converted to a brooch myself
Silver Thin Bangle - gifted
Shoes - retail ages ago

I'm really enjoying my pregnancy stylings. Sure some weeks with a growing bump, I feel at a loss as to what I'm going to bring together. But so far, so good I'm on track and feeling as though I haven't succumbed to modern maternity stylings.

Oh the maxi frock looks GORGEOUS on you! I love the colours in the floral & the way you've enhanced the blue with the belt. And I love the pinafore dress, it really works on you, & I adore it with that brooch. Thanks for brightening my Wednesday! Xx

That maxi is to die for! Floral is always right up my alley and you look amazing in this darker piece - the colours really do pop on the dark background! I hope you had a lovely dinner - a night with the girls is always good fun! xx

All thanks to you my sweet for the maxi, she'll be getting a bit of wear with the cooler temps and my growing bump for a little while yet. I do love my pinny dress and my dear brooch I just love any excuse to wear her too.

It's always a sweet surprise when one thing you don't normally of iris married to something you adore like florals and then you end up with a fab maxi.

Love that maxi, it's a beauty. I really like bright florals against a dark background, makes those colours pop! And spots and stripes are always a fabulous combination. xxx

The blue belt is wonderful with that fabulous maxi - it really makes those colours pop! The pinafore is gorgeous, too. x

It really is a sweetie and with that little bit of sleeve action it's ticking all the boxes.

Funny that blue belt is a bit of a go to belt for so many different outfits lately.
