Light Neutrals for Fall/Autumn & Winter, Part 2…

November 6, 2023

Some More Cream Please!

After a couple of years of being retired from an executive position in Education, I’m finally embracing a more relaxed lifestyle and my clothing choices are reflecting it.

I really love the way these light, neutral colours seem to make me feel so relaxed, they’re just so easy – on the eye and the vibe is pure comfort.

When I looked back on my pics and Instagram posts from the months just passed, I was a bit surprised by just how many creamy coloured outfits I’d worn, so I’ve decided to share them with you.

A bare shoulder and a thin crochet knit gives this outfit a sexy vibe
I always find high waisted pants more flattering as well as comfortable as my legs are a little short
I really love the half-tuck, just sayin’

Such a relaxed look for a beautiful, sunny winter’s day and the hat was just the perfect finish for a cute outfit.

The little bit of shoulder flash just added some sexiness to an otherwise covered-up and modest look.

Many of the looks are with pants but skirts also came out to play:

This jumper was a great find in an op-shop, so unusual with one sleeve and a drape on the other side
Love these booties, great neutral colour and just so cute

Making Sure to #Rewear!

This satin bias cut skirt has been on constant repeat this Fall/Autumn and Winter, along with the booties, I have to say!

It’s really great when you can get something that you really love wearing.

Paired this cosy jumper
Just love these boots

Neutral Dresses Work Too

The camel is perfect with this chocolate print vest and the coolness of the satin shirt is great up against my face, adding interest to the cuffs.

There’s no doubt that a wee bit of faux fur adds a touch of glam
This edge to edge vest is cosy while not being restrictive on the arms
I always prefer a belt to give a bit of shape
Bag on repeat, belt on repeat
Skirt, bag, belt and jumper on repeat
Loafers made for a super comfortable outfit
Loving the elegance of this shawl

Cropping the Look

I’m enjoying the trend of cropped pants and jeans – they’re fun and casual, and these light neutral ones have been heavily on rotation.

The linen jacket was a perfect pairing with the cropped jeans
Belt and boots on repeat
Blazer on repeat
I think these little cropped jeans are just so cute and fun and perfect for this time in my life – and yes I’m wearing those boots again!

It’s been great sharing my outfits for the Fall/Autumn and Winter and I think I’m my next post I will share the darker side of my clothing choices!

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web!

    This outfit is stunning. Despite you went for all neutrals the pattern and texture make it very interesting. Love the little pop of red from the brooch.

      Hi Nicole, thank you for your very kind comment, I’m just trying to work out which outfit you’re talking about? I think it’s the tartan pants with the satin shirt and cardi .. and yes, I do love my brooches. I feel I’ve been attracted to the quiet neutrals because they’re so uncluttered but that will probably change lol!
      I’m giving the blog thing a bit of a ho again but really I have no idea how to get this site right lol
      Thanks for coming in, Nicole!
