WIW 4/10 Shadow style: AllSaints Flora Mortis tee, Theory blazer and SE Ollies

I just got Angie's recommended fluid tee from AllSaints--the Flora Mortis tee (my first AllSaints purchase!). Received it yesterday and couldn't wait to put it on today. It's so soft and I love the fluid fit (great for apples) and black and white print of the wilting flowers. I wore it with my Theory leather trim black blazer, white skinny jeans and the Sam Edelman studded black Ollie pumps to work. (Too bad the pants covered up most of the shoe!) A little edgy and casual for the office, but I think it still works...what do you think?  I can tell this tee is going to be a workhorse for both MOTG and work!

Most of my new purchases this year have been focused on developing my shadow style. Don't know what to call it. UWP? Ladylike edgy? RATE Kate? Having fun exploring my darker side!

PS I often feel like I'm in the eye of the hurricane!

WIW 4/4-6: Orange loafers (aka the sky is falling!)

My style is so ladylike that I never thought that I would be wearing a tomboy look like boyfriend jeans and loafers! The sky must be falling!

I got these orange loafers from a recommendation on Pinterest Told Me To (same lady that I did the blardigan copycat on). I feel like the loafers are so loud that they tend to go best with relatively subdued outfits like #1 and #17. The outfit in #14 is kind of pushing my ALGO comfort level! But I still like doing matchy matchy, so even with relatively simple outfits I like to pair the orange pendant with the orange loafers, and the leopard print on the necklace echoes the matching leopard print belt and leopard print bracelet. These loafers are really comfy for MOTGGG (mom on the go go go) (7-9)...I had to ferry them to two different birthday parties, park, chess, ballet and took the two older ones to a school play (Peter Pan) that evening (10-13) while DH was out of town.

What do you think about the loafers? Are they too masculine for my style? They're kind of a fun change from my usual ballet flats!

The outfit in #19-21 is actually from the day before #1. I think it's amusing that it follows the same color/print formula with the white, blue, orange and leopard! I wore #19 to work and funny story, one of the other male doctors who likes to wear brightly colored pants (I guess you could say he's a bit of a fashionisto?) was wearing a light blue chambray shirt and rust colored trousers. We were twins that day! Hahaha.
