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!

    Very ladylike edgy imo - YLF.

    The eye of the storm is a very calm place to be.

    I can really see your shadow style blooming, GP:-) Love the new purchases, you are really focused! No matter the name and strenght of the hurricane, black and white  feel always polished and strong enough for getting through it all!:-)

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    Definitely Rate Kate or Ladylike Edgy! Those black studded pumps are fantastic, I might have to check those out for myself ;)

  • April replied 5 years ago

    Love.  Thank you for showing this tee under a jacket -- I was eyeing it myself and thinking that that's just how I'd wear it too.  

  • leopardluxe replied 5 years ago

    Love his whole look! (says the woman who loves edgier styles).

  • An replied 5 years ago

    Love it!  And love your children playing around your feet!

  • EveningMood replied 5 years ago

    I should feel relieved to see that that All Saints tee I cannot have would be too long for me anyway; still, now I want you shoes. Not fair. You are a knockout and have the cutest kids!

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    Ladylike edge definitely - nice!

  • Janet replied 5 years ago

    I really like your darker side! ;-) This is a great outfit on you. I love that top! And your kids are adorable.

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    Love the top.  Looks great on you and love how you have styled it.  The edgy look suits you.  Not sure what label I would call it but it works for you.

  • Golden replied 5 years ago

    The tee is cute and looks great with the outfit, love the shoes. Especially love the pics with your littles!!!!!

  • JayS replied 5 years ago

    Love this. Love the proportions. The white denim keeps the look from being too "dark side".
    Enjoy the sweet chaos those little ones bring. The house goes quiet all too soon.

  • ironkurtin replied 5 years ago

    You look smashing!

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Great look! I'm trying to figure out how I can copy this with pieces from my closet.

  • annagybe replied 5 years ago

    Super nice, but still you!

  • viva replied 5 years ago

    I LOVE your shadow style - and I love even that idea of having a shadow style. Fantastic styling. You look beautiful and mysterious.

  • Emily replied 5 years ago

    The Ollies and Flora Mortis tee look made for each other!  I love this outfit on you, it looks equal parts ladylike and edgy and totally office appropriate.  The only thing I would change is the pants length - I think they would look better if the length was just at/above the straps of your shoes.  (But they still look great now)

    Do you suppose it is safe to say that your edgy things are nolonger shadow style, but a fully-integrated component of your look?  Maybe it is time to revisit your style persona?

  • Parsley replied 5 years ago

    I think you've found a great balance in this outfit between your ladylike and edgy sides, Natalie! The white pants and floral print keep it a little bit softer, and even the Ollies are a nice cross between rocker and girly.

    I love how serene you are with all the chaos at your feet! I remember those days fondly!

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    Ooh, nice!  I really like the tee on you and the styling here is just wonderful.  

  • AviaMariah replied 5 years ago

    You look amazing and I am really enjoying your shadow style. 

  • Angela K replied 5 years ago

    I really love this style on you.  The combo of the tee, shoes and bag are awesome with the white jeans.  Maybe this shouldn't just be "shadow style" for you? :)

  • elpgal replied 5 years ago

    GP, what size did you get in the tee? It looks great on you!

  • goldenpig replied 5 years ago

    Thanks everyone! I'll come back after work to comment further. Elpgal, it's a size S which was what the size chart recommended (I'm normally size 4-6).

  • shedev replied 5 years ago

    Edgy, but still very you. Great look GP.

  • Peri replied 5 years ago

    I sent my M back and am waiting impatiently for the S replacement! Hope it works better for me in the smaller size. White is a great idea! I think I like it better on you than me, but I still really want it!
