For this post I wanted to feature one of my favourite current season cardigans worn in two different ways. I'm 100% addicted to the knitwear section of Dangerfield and I love these for everyday wear. My collection keeps growing every month as new designs, new embroidery and amazing shapes are released.
Dangerfield Woodlands Cardigan - $70.40
Revival Oh Deerest Dress - $98.00
I think the designers at HQ know my taste for woodland prints a little too well as they are spoiling me for choice this season! I've taken the Green Woodlands cardigan in a size 16 (super stretchy, warm and soft) and paired it with the amazing Oh Deerest dress.
The Oh Deerest dress is fully lined stunning in shape and as roomy cap sleeves a fitted waist, faux button up bust and a full skirt. To accommodate my bust I order an 18 in the dresses but the fit on this style is that roomy that I could have easily sized down to the 16. It's very, very roomy at the waist and bust but this is fixed with a waist belt. The armholes on the cap sleeve are great as well as they have heaps of room and don't dig in or cut your upper arm off in any way.
The skirt on this style flows so perfectly and it's a dream to wear to work or out casually. The high bustline works perfectly for busty girls showing a little skin while still covering up. The fabric is a mixture of cotton and lined which created a lightweight flowing skirt perfect to be worn all year round.
How amazing is this print? Featuring little grassy plains, trees, deer and if you know me well you'll know just how much I love a deer print! The natural beige fabric also makes the print pop really well and when paired with a similar color in the Woodland Cardigan as they are very close to being the same shade of green.
This cardigan is amazingly soft and a joy to wear, with the perfect chest and waist hugging fit I've come to love from Dangerfield's knitwear. The little embroidery details that make my heart swoon. With this outfit you the main focus is the dress and the cardigan is used for layering so the focus is on the colour and how well it pairs with the Deerest dress.

Revival Enchanted Skirt - $78.00
The second look focuses more on the cardigan's shape and the embroidered pockets. In the first look when worn loosely the amazing embroidered bears are not visible so for this look I wanted the cardigan to really be one of the main features as well as the skirt.
Lets just take a moment to gush over this winter a line skirt made from a 100% cotton that have a little stretch and is so cosy and warm. Complete with a prancing winter themed deer border that makes me swoon. Each deer has flowers entwined in their antlers and a little bird! It's these little features and attention to detail that make me love Dangerfield's prints and cardigans.
I'm wearing this skirt in a size 18 and I find the fit is perfect on my waistline right now. It sits at the highest part of my waist and skims over my hips to really flatter my shape. This style also looks great when you tuck in any top or bodysuit and really gives you amazing curves as it brings the focus to the small of your waist and you bust - so if you are hourglass shaped this is the skirt for you!
This shade of green is absolutely perfect when paired with the charcoal cotton skirt but the colour pairings are endless. From basic black to red, mustard or even plum you will have a ball pairing tops and cardigans with this skirt. Be it a solid colour dress or pussy bow blouse or a print you can find so many amazing items to pair with this cardi and now I think I need the Oh Deerest blouse to wear with this 2nd look.
I wanted to keep my accessories a little more simple for this set so I paired these looks with my grey angora beret and one of my all time favourite Classic Hardwear necklaces. I love how perfectly these two pieces pull both looks together and how well suited the stag gothic style necklace is to the Enchanted Skirt.
Finally the cherry on top has to be the best way to keep warm this winter - super soft, never snag or rip black stockings from Sonsee! I've tried these babies all year and now I can't wear anything else but Sonsee! Made for curves these tights are a dream to wear and will last you many winters.
I wear the 14/16 in all styles and they are roomy, can be worn super high (I like mine very far above my waistline) and will keep your pins protected as the weather gets more and more chilly. Made in Italy they are opaque, 100 denier and are full tights with total leg coverage. So you don't have to worry about that annoying short/darker line showing under your shorter length garments. They also offer other shades and amazing retro styled backseam stockings. As well as bodysuits, activewear and more! Now these are that roomy that I need to wear my shapewear over the top but I find that I get that issue with all stockings. I call it 'superhero styling' and its the best way to have your stockings in place all day long.
Many Thanks to the amazing Julz Photography for shooting these images in one of the most beautiful locations in Victoria - Macedon. I can't wait to create more and more with her over 2017.
