White pants 5 ways - Part 4 (Texture)

This outfit was the perfect fit on Sunday for Mother's Day.  Uncomplicated luxury is what I love when I'm wanting to feel and look comfortable without compromising on style.  I'm often drawn to simple tran-seasonal pieces such as knits in solid colours, with interesting textures or weaves, combined with a more dramatic shoe.  Speaking of which, aren't these Chloe pumps outrageously cute?  They were a super sale piece from The Outnet so naturally all control was lost and boom... they were in the shopping bag.

What I'm wearing:

Closed low-slung pants (HERE)
Chloe Elaphe snakeskin pumps (HERE)

I've been having sensory overload with the number of solid coloured knits and tops this season.  All of these have made it to my wish list which seems to be in an ever expanding state of flux. Unrealistic... sure, but my online wish list it is like my alternate wardrobe in a parallel universe and it doesn't cost anything to have! 

As it turns out there are also a bucket load of textured shoes around at the moment too. Why is it when it rains it pours?!


  1. The texture/weave on that knit is just gorge!



  2. Those Chloe's are divine, loss of control completely understandable.

  3. ooooh those shoes are beautiful! I can see why you bought them! Really like that knit too! I think it's time to get all of my knits out of the wardrobe, it's getting chilly here.
