Wardrobe Wednesday | Floral Crowns

Wardrobe Wednesday

 

Welcome to Wardrobe Wednesday!  I’m delighted and honoured to be taking over the hosting duties from Kelly at Kiwi Womens Style.  Every Wednesday, you are invited to share a fashion post with the Wardrobe Wednesday Glam Squad.  Anything you like as long as it is fashion related.

Share an outfit you loved and tell us why it made you feel so fabulous.  Perhaps share a favourite piece that you’ve styled for different occasions.  One piece styled several different ways.  Perhaps be brave and share the story of a piece you just can’t make work – the Wardrobe Wednesday Glam Squad may just be able to offer some suggestions!

If you’re playing along with Nikki at Styling You for #everydaystyle, you are very welcome to join in the Wardrobe Wednesday fun.  Wardrobe Wednesday is all about sharing fashion inspiration – we love everyday style just as much as we love date night glamour.

 

What I Wore | Floral Crowns

 

Oh, I do love a  hair accessory … or three.  Especially when they feature pretty flowers and disguise dirty hair.

 

what I wore

 

Wearing a coral rose floral crown from Glassons, teamed with a thrifted lace tee purchased from Byron Bay.  I’m wearing it over a neon orange Country Road stretchy cami.  Teamed with Katies rose and bird print pants, with my Mox in Emerald for comfort.

I adore the simplicity of this simple Glassons rose floral crown – and the price was under $20 too.

Australia Day found us having a gentle family day with mini golf in the morning, a yummy  picnic lunch at home, a bike ride in the afternoon and a delicious dinner of risotto, cooked by the Welshman.  Man, am I a lucky girl.

In honour of Australia Day, I teamed a wattle yellow rose floral crown from ASOS with a yellow Kate Spade Saturdays leather bag purchased from Mint Condition in Rozelle, with an Australian-made green bunny brooch from The Storybook Rabbit.  My polka dot linen tee is from Country Road, that stalwart of the Australian high street.

The yellow is also a nod to the yellow, red and black of the Aboriginal flag.  It is important to remember the emotion that Australia Day can bring up for Australia’s first people.

My leather flats were picked up for a tenner at the Gorman outlet centre in Birkenhead Point.  Two of the interlinked leather circles had separated.  Five minutes work with a piece of black elastic and my needle and thread, and they were as good as new.  In fact, far more practical and easier to wear.  I repeated the process on the unbroken shoe!

The cotton Part Two patterned skirt was purchased about four years ago on a shopping trip with my lovely sister-in-law in her lovely village, Berkhamsted, on a family trip to the UK.  It possesses magic qualities with a tummy reducing waistband and fabric that never needs ironing, despite being 100% cotton.  I know right!

I’ve accessorised with my fabulous Ruby Olive Film Noir artisan ring, my Usual Suspects white gold pave diamond heart necklace, coordinating pave diamond heart studs and Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co silver bangle, plus Tiffany & Co and Pandora silver rings, with a family piece I’ve recently acquired.  My paternal Granddad’s sterling silver coin holder makes a fabulous locket on a Mimco Precious sterling silver chain.

 

Floral Crown

 

I paid well under $10 for this very yellow floral crown.  It isn’t my favourite floral hair accessory but there is no denying it’s cheery nature!

For our afternoon family bike ride, I switched my bag to my lovely Anizoe Odette leather clutch, a gift from the designer.  I am such a lucky girl!  The clutch is retro cute in design with fabulous colours and a very practical size.  She fits beautifully into Betsey Bicycle’s beautiful basket.

 

Floral crown

 

Gorgeous, isn’t it?  Comes with a metal chain strap too, but because of the structured nature of the clutch and its waxed leather, it is very easy to tuck under one arm, plus slides beautifully into a bigger tote for busy days.

 

Floral Crown

 

Strictly speaking, this piece is more of a flower headband than a floral crown but it is just too pretty not to share!  It’s handmade using stretch lace, crystal elements, crochet doilies and beautiful fabric pink roses by Tiger Pickles.  Incredibly well priced for the detail.

I’m wearing it with a simple chambray tunic dress from Seed Femme and my own design, the Orange Juice at Tiffany’s cube necklace, by Ashloc Designs.

Trying out a new look for me, with a nude lip, featuring Lime Crime Babette opaque lipstick.  It is more creamily palest peach in person.  I stepped up the cheek colour to compensate.  A change is as good as a holiday!

    Oh Kimba…I love how you can pull off a flower crown ANY DAY! If I did that…let’s just say I’ll probably get weird looks from people down the street. No, scratch that…my kids! I do love your style and confidence though – rub that confidence on me babe!ReplyCancel

  • Mystery Case - 29 January 2014 - 11.00 am

    I wish I could wear crowns. Sadly I just end up looking like a clown 🙁

    My girls love Tiger Pickles for crafting and headbands.ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 29 January 2014 - 1.31 pm

      I’d love to be able to craft – I just have ideas but no skills! I probably look like a clown but because I feel so fabulous, no one notices! 😉ReplyCancel

  • Sonia from Sonia Styling - 29 January 2014 - 9.38 am

    You rock a floral crown so well, Kim-Marie. Love the whimsy it adds to your sassiness!ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 29 January 2014 - 1.31 pm

      Sonia, I love that! I’d love to see you wear some flowers in that gorgeous mane of yours! xReplyCancel
