I have not been too active on the forum lately: life is getting in the way all the time. However I want to keep posting my weekly WIW just to keep myself on my toes :-)
Here I had some experiments and would appreciate your honest opinion on them. I also see that I wore a pattern and white every day - must have been a theme of the week for me!

I wanted to try this pointelle sweater from JCrew with a flared skirt but I am not sure if it is too long for it? I wore it over a white button down tucked into the skirt to work but also took a picture of this sweater without a shirt underneath. Does it work at all and which way you prefer - layered over the shirt or on its own?

Pouring rain all day so skinnies tucked into tall boots were in order. I had a nasty jolt in the middle of the day when I went out and was caught in a downpour: I discovered dark blue streaks appeared on my new white jeans! At first I could not figure out what caused them but then I discovered they came from my silver bag when it became wet. Thankfully I was able to get them out in the wash that night so my new white jeans are saved!

I felt like culottes that day and thought that this more cropped and less fluid sweater should work with them. Somehow I like this sweater with culottes much better that with my flared skirts...
Bonus shot of my outerwear that day.

This is where I went copycat on Suz and ordere the same toile sweatshirt as hers. I wanted to wear a red skirt and could not decide what to wear on top until I remembered this sweatshirt. It is quite oversized on me, I guess I could have gone with a size down but it was on a final sale so I am stuck with this size :-) I wore it over a shirt tucked in that day but I ma including pictures with the shirt untucked - what do you think? Works?
Also this is the first time I am wearing my flat black Chelsea booties with a skirt. I thought they are not very skirt friendly with a taller shaft and flat heels but I hope the darker hose just made them flattering enough?

I wanted to wear my Danier snakeprint jacket that day and it really needs a simple support act. Black turtleneck seems the right layer with it but I did not feel dark bottoms this time. As my white skinnies were in the wash after a bag accident I decided to wear my new white slim BF jeans from Gap. I wore them rolled up all day but I think that rolled down version is better even if less friendly - what do you think?
I planned to wear my taupe suede booties with this outfit to echo the taupe in the jacket but unfortunately I woke up to see another snowfall on the ground so I had to go with these Naya booties.
Thank you for looking and I hope you have a great weekend!
