Light-weight Layers for Transition Styling


Processed with MOLDIV


I love to layer up for style and practicality.  None of these pieces are new so I’m just giving ideas of how to style this look using similar pieces.  My style philosophy, which I learnt from my mother, was to choose a few good quality items and mix and match them to get multiple different looks.

The longer length cardi is from my fav Zadig & Voltaire and I bought it at the end of last summer season on sale :0….Result!  I like this style as it slims the hips and covers the bum if you like it that way.  Similar here and here Styled with a camisole the cardi transitions into summer and covers up in the morning and evening when there is still a chill in the air.  This camisole is a Liberty of London print produced in a limited edition for Uniclo, therfor cheap as chips!  Sadly no longer available but I love this one here or for a warmer palette this one here

Love my skinny jeans as you may have realised by now!  Look out for lighter weight cotton mixes for summer wear.  These are old ones from Hudson Jeans – I wish they still produced them with back pockets as they are very flattering for a boyish figure like mine.  Some alternatives that I like are here or my favorite pink ones here

I like to wear my boots for as much of the year as possible so the plethora of white ones that are available this year are a great bonus for the summer vibe that they add.  Mine are from Chloe so an investment piece, but if I ever tire of them they will sell on consignment for not much less than I paid for them and never, never will they go for landfill :O!!!  here and here I like this neutral color pair, similar style here but much more reasonable ;p and also this style here and these boot style sandals look pretty cool too here  My bag is also from my favorite major design brand here and here but these saddle bags would look good with the outfit too here and here and here

To complete the look I pile on a collection of silver jewelry with a few turquise accents, perfect for a summer boho vibe.

Thats it for now folks.  Thank you for stopping by, Sarah X

Baby Boomer speaks for itself, yes I am a woman of a certain age ;) Why Badass? I have Rock & Roll in my DNA, coupled with some Punk Attitude and a (Lovin) Spoonful of Hippie Chic. Altogether BABB ;O The blog is not intended to be age specific, or indeed age appropriate! It is more about my style philosophy. The blog is to help girls and women of all ages to become more confident in expressing who they are through the way they dress. Mine are style tips and tricks based on years of styling, and an extensive knowledge of the fashion industry. My shopping advice is suitable for those with a limited budget, those who are strapped for cash, and for the lucky ones who have cash to splash. Personally I mix it up, marrying high street with high end to achieve my unique look. I hope that you will enjoy my new blog, Sarah x
