I love dresses: they’re quick and easy to wear because they can stand alone as an item of clothing or can be worn with other things, like coats, jackets, shoes and scarves to change the look of them:
This jersey dress has a black background with navy and the palest pink small flowers – I paired it with a longer pale pink cardigan or with a short navy cardigan and pale pink shoes.
The dress looked good with both options, although the pink cardigan was more snug.
I am far more likely to wear separates for more casual looks.
A recent trend that I have wanted to incorporate into my wardrobe is millennial or good old baby pink.
I generally favour stronger jewel colours so decided I would only access a touch of this much talked about colour:
I’m wearing a striped navy, pink and cream t-shirt with navy pants and the short navy knit and pink heels.
This also looks good with the longer pink cardigan:
I think that the longer cardigan is definitely more on-trend and is a snug and cute look as we make our way towards spring here in Australia, but as I’m petite I worry that these looks tend to swamp me, which is why I generally preference cropped knitwear and jackets.
I do enjoy the challenge of pairing different things together that wearing separates offers me:
I’ve worn the same pink cardigan and shoes but this time with a black skirt that has the pink flowers and it works great here too!
Clearly, there can be a lot of mileage made out of a couple of simple items added to our wardrobe to alter or complete a look as we move into a new season which keeps us current and doesn’t break the bank.
I think I’m going to get a lot of wear out of this pink and this navy cardigan!

Thank you, Bonnie, I generally prefer jewel tones but this had a pretty, springy feel to it so I hope to wear it with enthusiasm over the coming months… 🙏 Donna

It’s very pretty – soft pink is always feminine and sweet … thank you for taking look at my earlier blogs you can probably see the change in the way I present discussion as my defences have been coming down – and a lot of that is because of your work so thank you! We affect others in a way we don’t even know, hey?! Donna 🧚🏻♀️❤️🙏
