Most Worn In April – How I’m Re-Wearing

 

This time last year I had a golden tan from the good weather we had, This year is a completely different ball game! Some days when I’ve headed out of the door early I’ve still needed a winter coat! We had that gorgeous weekend during the Easter break but that’s about it. I’m sharing with you some items that I’ve worn the most during April. How I’ve been mixing my favourite brands.

Most Worn – The Pleated Skirt

 

I'm sharing with you some items that I've worn the most during April, along with some beauty updates and generally what's been going on in my life.

 

I’m getting lots of wear out of this Pleated skirt. The colourways of blue, white, mustard and chocolate make it so easy. I paired it with a mustard top that didn’t make it onto a blog post even though I really like it.

It sold out really quickly and I thought it a bit pointless sharing something that wasn’t available. Mustard has been a really big colour this year, I remember the shops being full of it earlier in the year.

Tan accessories to finish the look, Both bag and sandals are from last year but still have lots of wear left in them. I don’t know why but tan always comes out to play more during the warm months.

 

 

Here’s the skirt worn for the sunglasses post with the blue jacket. One piece of advice that I can give you when choosing a pleated skirt is to size up. When you’re trying them on, just try both sizes. I think they hang so much better if they are on the roomy side.

I think it’s funny that I’m sporting sunglasses on a cold dreary day and not wearing them on a sunny evening walk home!

 

 

Most worn – The Boucle Smart Jacket

 

 I'm sharing with you some items that I've worn the most during April, along with some beauty updates and generally what's been going on in my life.

 

It’s surprising how you can switch a look from casual to smart. This Bonmarche Boucle jacket has been worn so much. I’ve paired it with dark navy denim, navy trousers, and cream trousers. Again the colour mix in the jacket helps the decision making in what to pair the jacket with.

I’ve paired the jacket with the pink Cafe Trousers from Laura Ashley. I have these trousers in a few colours, they’re a super comfortable, classic cut, good quality type of trouser and available in other colours of Black and a Herringbone pattern mix in Grey. Each year, Laura Ashley releases different colours of this trouser, or I should say they have the last few years. There’s a gorgeous beige pair on there at the moment but they aren’t calling them Cafe trousers this year for some reason. Worth a look.

 

 

I’ve also been wearing Christina T-shirt a lot. I thought the pink lettering went well with the cerise trousers. It’s surprising how many people have actually asked ” where did you get that T-shirt?” and then I’ve had to tell the story about Diana’s Trust Award. I have it nearly off pat now!

 

I'm so happy today to share these photos of Sara and me on the blog. My daughter wasn't that confident about doing this photo shoot but just look at her! She is beautiful and I couldn't be more proud.

 

In case you missed it here’s the first entry of the Boucle jacket. A most enjoyable edit when my daughter Sarah joined me, The White Bonmarce jeans have been worn a lot too. I’m actually wearing them now as I write this with a blue Breton T-shirt. The jacket is currently on sale at £25.00!!

 

 

Absolute most worn!

 

 

I'm sharing with you some items that I've worn the most during April, along with some beauty updates and generally what's been going on in my life.

 

If you’re a regular reader you are most probably sick of the site of this Blazer! But it really is my most worn! I can’t applaud my most loved brand Baukjen enough when it comes to tailoring!

Here I am practising my photography. I’m actually picking Sarah up from a shopping trip, parked in a shopping centre car park when I spotted a lovely blossom tree. Luckily I had the tripod in the back of the car, so I whipped it out to take a shot of myself under the blossom tree.

Unluckily the blossom blurred and focused on me! So it wasn’t that lucky and it goes to show I need to brush up on my photography skills!

 

Who knew we would have such a glorious couple of sunny days this week. In February too!

 

Here’s the first entry of the Blazer. Who’d have thought we would have such a glorious day in February? Just to let my American readers know that yes, Baukjen can be purchased there. I’ve had a few of my American friends ask. The Blazer is still available on sale too.

 

 

Most worn Accessory

 

 

What an absolute little gem of a handbag this has turned out to be. It works with so many colours and for me, it’s a perfect size. An absolute bargain at £20 at Bonmarche

Can I just mention the trousers too? Into their second year also these trousers (like stretch cotton leggings) have been amazing. I’m hoping to get a couple more colours this year.

From another favourite brand Roman Originals, the stretch and comfort that they provide make them a highly worn item in my wardrobe. Well worth a look. Sandals are from Vionic Uk.

 

Other than that It’s been mostly loungewear! That’s what I wear most if I’m not heading out the door! Let me know of any bargain finds you have spotted!

There will be a new vlog with my “new in my wardrobe” on Monday if you would like to stop by. Have you seen the latest make up vlog? You can watch it from here

    I am such a fan of blazers, so I am totally with you on this subject. I only have one pleated skirt and it’s short, so I might need to get a longer one. It’s such a gorgeous look, Laurie,

    Laurie, all of these pieces are so pretty and versatile. I love to see how I can restyle a piece over and over and I’ve noticed I do that a lot on my blog. It is fun to look back and see how many different ways I have worn a piece. Love that skirt and both of your jackets. Your style is so pretty. – Amy

      Thanks so much Amy. I just want to prove that I don’t wear new clothes on a weekly/daily basis. Sometimes it appears that way being a fashion blogger and all my outfits don’t get worn just once xx

    The pleated skirt is my favorite. So chic, so versatile. Thank you for sharing with My Red Carpet.

    I have to say, I love your style. I found you because of that awesome printed pleated skirt and the rest is history. These looks were totally on point and timeless BUT what I really love about this is all the ways you smartley wore these pieces on repeat, we need more that inspiration in our lives – less stuff more style.
    I hope we can connect with soon

      Hi Veronica.
      Thank you so much for such a lovely compliment. I have just been browsing your gorgeous jewellery! xx

    I’ve always avoided pleated skirts in case they make me look bigger than I already am – but love that one you’re wearing so will have a try on the next time I’m shopping – you’ve inspired me. Also love your sandals. They are exactly what I have been looking for – all fabulous outfits!

    All of the outfits are lovely and I so agree with your evaluation of the pleated skirt!! I’ve avoided them as I’m fairly short but purchased one recently and as you said it’s on the roomy side and I really like it!! I like the way you’ve styled it in different ways!! Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend!! Donna 🧚🏻‍♀️❤️🙏 donnadoesdresses.com

    Hi, Laurie – We’ve had a coolish April as well, which often kept me bundled up in my drab winter coat.
    I love the styles that you have shared here. I look forward to following more.

    I love a pleated skirt, especially one that flows naturally, like yours. You may be right that the trick is to go up one size, so thanks for the advice. I’m also loving the bouclé jacket and those scrumptious cerise trousers! xxx

      Thanks, Ashley. This is something I want to do on a regular basis. I wonder sometimes if my readers think I wear it once and that’s it, but that’s clearly not the case. xx
