The fashion world will be espousing the merits of what they call "transitional" dressing right about now. Living in Scotland, this is not really a thing. We have to dress transitionally pretty much year round, just in varying degrees. 

Transitional dressing is that sort of loosey-goosey term they apply to that time of year when you arrive at work in the morning with a cardigan or jacket on, then when you leave the office you forget it, because the temperatures climbed during the afternoon and you removed your jacket or cardi and left it hanging on the back of your desk chair. When I was living in the States, there were days where every light jacket I owned would be at work. At least here in Scotland, you are seldom inspired by the temperatures to remove your jacket or cardigan, so the chances of losing custody of either are pretty slim. 

I liked the way this Aztec-print oversized cardigan looked over this faux leather panelled skirt. The proportions seemed right, and it has just the right amount of swing. It's an easy look, and in the spirit of my August Green Necklace Challenge, is comprised completely of things that I have had in my closet a while. I liked this look so much I'm thinking about wearing a version of it to a party on Saturday…maybe just with a slightly dressier blouse underneath. We shall see.

  1. You look amazing, as always! I love that cardigan... I just wish it was cold enough to wear that sort of thing here but alas no. Still boiling hot! (I'm not trying to rub it in... I really am envious of you being in the cooler, wet weather. Honestly!)

  3. A nice proposal for the climate of Scotland at this time. The jacket is wonderful. I love your green bracelet.

  4. Very chic. Our weather is a bit wonky right now as well.
