What I Wore | Wearing Tartan

Current status? Obsessed with tartan.  In love with checks.  Plaid is rad.  Here’s the proof!

Wearing Tartan | weekend wanders

For a lovely relaxing Saturday with the Blokefolk, I teamed my Seed oversized check coat with layers of feminine floral and knobbly knit.

I do love a print clash, and tartan lends itself perfectly.  The red print with white base on both fabrics coordinates without clashing unbearably.  It’s almost mix and match!

Pssst … run don’t walk to nab my Seed Oversized Check Coat for $79.95.  It’s down from $229.95.  Click here to shop

With my Seed tartan coat, I’m wearing Bohemian Traders Liberty Print Button Down Shirt, Katies Super Shapers in Berry, and an old Somedays Lovin’ cropped textured knit.  Fun fact – this was my very first purchase from The Iconic years ago!

I’ve accessorised with blue suede Hush Puppies Yelena ankle boots – a gift from The Iconic, Hound + The Hare dinosaur hairbow, and Kenzie Leni the Llama earrings in mint resin.

Wearing Tartan | Holiday Monday

For a truly lovely public holiday spent shopping with a girlfriend, pottering in the garden and hanging out with the neighbourhood tribe of kids, I rocked a fabulous Boohoo tartan shirt dress.

A new piece from Boohoo, it’s 100% cotton, cute as a button and flattering to boot.

I teamed it with my Hush Puppies boots, beloved old Country Road ponte leather-trimmed leggings (love ’em so much I have them in three colours), and a classic camel short sleeved Saba knit that I’ve been wearing for seven years.  Talk about cost per wear!

I upped the fun factor with a fringe braid and a paper plane necklace by Uberkate.

Wearing Tartan | layered print clash

My Seed tartan coat made another appearance – along with my Hush Puppies boots from The Iconic.  Guess I’m obsessed with them too!

For a preppy cute look, I teamed the coat with a Sadie dress from Mangos Fashion worn as a skirt with a sweet(heart) Next knit, Flower Clothing leggings and the aforementioned Hush Puppies suede boots.

I topped off my look with a Posh & Frolic hairbow and added some ladylike chic with a structured Chloden London mini tote, from OzSale.

Wearing Tartan | wet Wednesday

I teamed a hint of tartan by wearing a Boohoo Plus tartan bodycon mini dress as a layering top, along with a big pop of pretty autumnal-toned tartan with my Forever New scarf.

The scarf was a birthday gift from the Welshman a few years ago.  It’s not a colour I often wear but he thought it would look very pretty with my auburn hair.  Isn’t he a sweetie?  Definitely a keeper.

Excuse the dreadful photograph – my photographer has gone on school camp and I’m in selfie mode!

My new H&M “cricket sweater” makes me very happy – and super snuggly warm.  Love the contrasting V neck and cuffs, and the oversized yet flattering wide shape.

I’ve teamed it with ancient Midas Chelsea boots, and dark denim Katies Super Shapers.  Two pairs of Super Shapers in a few days.  Looks like I’m obsessed with them too!
