It’s been a while since I’ve featured Sancerre here on the blog.
It’s a Melbourne-based clothing company that offers relaxed lifestyle pieces – many of which really suit a trans-seasonal wardrobe.
There’s an emphasis on layering and effortless styling.
A couple of years ago I wore and featured Sancerre’s basic band slip in white. If you’ve been following along for some time, you’ll know all about my love of wearing a slip dress under a frock (particularly a summer frock). This one is one of the best as it has the tank-style straps, allowing you to wear and hide a normal bra underneath. The band at the bottom helps prevent the slip riding up when you’re wearing it.
Today’s outfit doesn’t feature the slip but it does feature two pieces that help create a wearable casual outfit that is particularly at home during the trans-seasonal months.
I realise that for those who live in colder parts of Australia, it’s an outfit combination that won’t work in the height of winter.
For me, it’s the ideal combination for a day that can get up to the early ’20s temperature wise with a light-weight jacket that adds outfit interest.
And it also includes my friends – the printed pants.
A few years ago if anyone had told me I’d be wearing elasticated pants in a printed fabric, I would have very much guffawed and uttered things that would prove to be un-truths.
The truth is I fell hard for this pant style and find the print is a great way to add personality to a pair of pants. You get the ultimate combination of comfort and style interest.
Work that back with a basic tee and a jacket or cardi and you have a fantastic alternative to jeans. These are elasticated at the bottom which enabled me to roll them up to just above the ankle – this is the length that I find most flattering on me.
Now, you may have some trouble with sourcing sizing in these pants online but Sancerre is also available at stockists around Australia. Find one nearest you.
The jacket just works for me. It’s the ideal addition for an autumn morning on the soccer sideline or casual day at home. Love the colour, love the hood and love the pockets. It won’t work mid-winter except during the middle of the day but either side of the season it will work a treat.
For the tee, I opted for one of my trusty Witchery relaxed linen tees. I have three of them and they keep on giving. They wash and retain their shape and allow for me to wear an outfit like this without muffin-top concerns. It doesn’t suit me to do the full tuck but the half tuck with a blousing over the waist band does work.
I bought these loafers a couple of months ago and they are up there with some of the most comfortable shoes I own. They also look good, which you know, is kind of important to me 😉
If you find it difficult to find shoes that sit well on your feet (and maybe fit any prescribed orthotics) then you need to check out Frankie4 Footwear. Your feet will thank you for it.
Are you on board with printed pants? Love a light jacket?

PS. My blogging friend Vanessa at Style and Shenanigans is hosting an outfit challenge this week – and it’s all about embracing prints in your wardrobe. I’m going to play along … you might want to join in and tag it along with your #everydaystyle. Today’s challenge prompt is stripes, tomorrow it’s animal print (tips here).
