Stepford Wife

Sometimes I get into these moods when I'm picking out my clothes, I pick out a uniform or a costume. Today I am channelling my inner Stepford wife. I love this cardigan from H&M (not a big fan of their disposable fashion, it goes back to fit and being six feet tall), its part or their baroque line. The coral colour and the rhinestone buttons are what attracted me to it in the first place. In the store they had paired it with brocade pants in gold and coral. I loved the pants, I just wouldn't wear them because of my "lifestyle" plus they would be too short on me. I'm pretty sure that Avril from Schoolgate Style tried them on and she looked fab.

Anyway back to being a Stepford wife...certain cardigans say perfect suburban wife and this one was screaming it when I paired it with my jeans. I felt like my name should be Bitsie or something and I was going to make sure that my home was the epitome of perfection for my man. Hahaha! It's fun to play make believe.

 Now the question becomes tucked or untucked?

This cardigan is great but it likes to ride up because of my height. So for me I prefer something underneath. Just a cautionary tale.

Hooking up with Transatlantic blog for WIWW!

  1. Haha...that's pretty funny. I can see the Stepford connection...Just kidding. I think its a really cute kind of polished casual look. The coral is really sweet.

  2. Yes, I like it with the untucked shirt.. it's a gorgeous bright color..can see how it would work with 'my' Elvis trousers! Off to vote for my No. 1 fav Canadian blogger :) Avrilx

  3. untucked;-)
    I love your cardigan...
    nice coasual look

  4. tucked is VERY stepford wives, and unfortunately because you are tall maybe a tad too short. I like it untucked because it looks a bit more deliberate.

  5. definitely untucked. cardigans are definitely making their way into my closet sooner than later.

  6. I like it better untucked.
    The cardi is super cute, but, of course, I'm dying to know what it would look like with brocade pants. Go back to the store and get them, pretty please. :D

    1. You asked so sweetly...but no...but maybe...

    2. I like the sound of maybe.... ;)
      I don't know about you, but my maybes almost always turn into yes. LOL

  7. Love that cardi and those buttons!

  8. Better untucked definitely. Good luck with the top 15 - just voted for you again!

  9. Just voted! I prefer it untucked, maybe with the belt over it at your waist... my stylist's wheels are turning. But let's face it, Iva. You couldn't put together a bad outfit if you tried. You ALWAYS look impeccable. And look far too intelligent to be a Stepford wife!!! Great look, lovely Lady! ~Sarah

  10. Untucked but with top two buttons and bottom button undone ;)

  11. I rarely button cardigans but that is because they don't really close over my boobs :)

  12. Love the stepford wife look...the sparkly button add the perfect touch. As a fellow mom of two boys, I love your daily style.
