What I'm Wearing | Ritzy Nautical

Posted on March 27 2013

As I'm refining my style, I'm feeling more comfortable in 'grown up' clothes! 

Yes, I'm in my 30's but I don't really feel my age.... and I've long abandoned the idea that style has an age... I think if it looks good, then wear it.  Live and let look good! So short skirts after 40 and skinny jeans when you're 70 are totally acceptable.  From time to time though, I really love dressing like a grown up. This look makes me feel sophisticated, classy while still showing off a little youthfulness!

Rene's Strike It Rich Sweater is a loose fitting, loose weave cream and gold knit sweater. Now let's just chat a little about horizontal stripes.  I'd like to take it up with the Fashion Editor that once dictated "horizontal stripes are unflattering".  I absolutely disagree. Stripes can actually make the eye dance and give the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. I'm really feeling stripes this season and I love how they pair up with other prints... and certainly bright solids such as coloured denim.  Betty has some adorable striped tops... check it out!

The gold buttons on Neve's In The Navy Now Trousers accent beautifully on the front pocket lines of these wider leg pants. The waistline is mid-rise and when they fit just right, the front crease drops right off your thigh for a gorgeous clean line. I would also pair up these trousers with red and white stripes, bright colours like lime and yellow or a basic button down sleeveless white blouse. In our One Moto | Four Ways vlog, we show how these trousers can be edgy with a cognac moto. 

The chain-link gold necklace and stacking bracelets add a youthful flare to this look. I stacked four styles of bracelets to create a lush arm party, our Betty's Fav Bow Bracelet in white (also available in brown & pink), Spiky But Sweet two tone bangle, the Grown Up Friendship Bracelet in mint and the Cross Stacking Bracelets (four stretchable bracelets sold together). We have them packaged up as a quartet for sale at 30% off the price of buying them all separately.  Click here to shop

My leopard pumps are a fun footwear choice, but it would also be cute with wedges in cognac or strappy gold sandals for summer.
