This week was an experiment to see how I can dress for 2015 trends from my wardrobe. Honestly I cannot say that I was 100% happy with the results but this is what experiments are for, right?

pic #1 Fluid Fits
This one was easy as fluid fits make the bulk of my closet. Everything in this outfit is several years old but I hope it still looks current. My soft edge!

pic #2 Tailored Silhouettes
My attempt on a tailored silhouette using a fluid cashmere sweater. The sweater is pretty thin (actually it was called "tee" on JCrew website) so it was not too bulky for tucking in. It felt a bit strange to tuck the sweater in though - please let me know what you think.

pic #3 ’70s Inspiration
I have a memory from mid-seventies of my Mom wearing a long gilet over a turtleneck and flared trousers so this was my inspiration for this outfit. It is quite dark for spring so I added a bit of light with the pearl necklace, bag and booties.

pic #4 White
Another easy one as white is widely represented in my closet (Angie's influence of course). This outfit was also a feeble nod to her stunning sea foam outfit because it is also white and blue. I tried this cat print shirt with this pointelle white sweater last week and really liked it so this is what I decided to go with that day. Alas - only during the day I realized that the outfit I tried before was with the dark wash jeans so it was more flattering than this one (lower contrast on the bottom) Oh well, next time - hopefully this one was not a complete disaster!

pic #5 Wild Card
I got these pleated wide leg trousers at consignment store last fall. I was attracted by the camel color and the fluid fit - my wild card for this spring season. This is their first outing as our winters are not friendly for wide legs. I was debating if I should tuck in the turtleneck but decided to wear it untucked.
I was also debating if I should add a scarf or this camel vest and decided to go with the vest in the end. It does not match the color of the trousers perfectly but it is closer in color than looks in the picture.
These pins were my inspiration - something I wanted to try for a long time but was not able until I got the trousers:
It felt good during the day but looking at my pictures I am not really sure it looked that good. Also I think it was a mistake to wear this cape with these trousers - too much volume, right? I would appreciate your opinion here and suggestions.
Anyway, this is what I had this week. Thank you for looking, as usual all feedback and suggestions are very much appreciated.
Have a wonderful weekend!
