Working with Katies fashion has really opened my eyes.
I have honestly found pieces that I cannot live without.
Pieces that continue to be on high-rotation.
All this from the girl, that until a year ago, hadn’t even stepped foot over the threshold of Katies.
Stepping out of my comfort zone and becoming Ms Adventurous has enabled me to realise that Katies Cotton Ultimate and Super Shaper jeans are truly a dream to wear.
If they’re not already in your wardrobe girls – I urge you to give them a try (I always buy a size down).
The reason I tell you this though, is because I find myself reaching for them often, in preference to some of my very expensive branded jeans.
Big praise indeed don’t you agree?
Especially because you already know, my wardrobe is bursting at the seams, right?
I count myself extremely lucky.
I know I have a fabulous choice of clothes at my finger tips.
When you have lots of choice though, it’s truly amazing what you reach for.
So over the weekend, I took the time to stand in my wardrobe and really look at what I wear on a regular basis.
I don’t mean my Country Road work wardrobe. It goes without saying that I wear most of those pieces to death.
Instead I wanted to focus on what grab when I’m rushing and not really thinking.
Yep. It surprised me.
Besides grabbing my drop crotch pants. I often reach for the first pair of Super Shaper jeans I ever had from Katies.
They were not gifted, but they are loved.
I was inspired to by the gorgeousness that is Sonia Styling to search out the exact pair of jeans she was rocking.
That was over a year ago.
I’m still grabbing them this year.
Guess what? I actually wore them at ProBlogger.
Yes. I had plenty of newer jeans that I could have taken, but instead I took the older pair.
I know. This fact has even shocked me!
Anyway, a few weeks ago I posted an edit for Katies featuring their new Cotton Collection
Since then, a few additional items have arrived in store and online to support that range.
So I thought I would give you the low-down plus a quick sticky beak, just in case something floats your styling boat – just like it did for me, with Sonia.
3/4 Drop Sleeve Cotton Knit*^ Pink coral $49.95 (wearing L) | Mosaic Tile Cotton Scarf*^ $24.95 | Much loved super shaper jeans from a year ago | Catalina Heels (only black left available online $179.00)
Zip Front Hi-Lo Tunic *^$39.95 Katies| Jeans as above | Shoes: Iris by Country Road (check outlet stores)
Coral Stripe Cotton Scarf*^ $24.95 Katies | Shoes and jeans see above
What I’m loving so much from the new cotton collection is the lightweight wear-ability and of course the price.
Heading into S/S we all need pieces that will not only look stylish and keep us cool on a boiling hot day, but also pieces that won’t find you hyperventilating when it comes to handing over your hard-earned cash.
I’m sure it didn’t take you long to realise I think Katies jeans are the absolute bomb, but let’s not forget the scarves.
Hello coral stripe gorgeousness?
How fabulous is that? And what a great little teachers present it would make too.
The zip front hi-lo tunic will work like a dream with your favourite white skinnies (yes, I will be wearing this combo) and its made from 100% viscose cheesecloth.
Yes, only dinosaurs like me will probably remember cheesecloth in the 70’s – but I did squeal with excitement when I read the fabric description.
Overall, I’m truly delighted I’ve stepped over the Katies threshold.
Thank goodness Sonia Styling inspired me to take a look, because I’m extremely grateful and so is my butt – Yep, did I already tell you, it loves the jeans? 😉
Are you a Katies virgin or a Katies convert?
It’s Wednesday so it means I’m linking up with Kimbalikes for Wardrobe Wednesday
