layer cake

You know I love my layers…stripes, knits, denim, leather and all sorts going on today.   I’m a big believer in adding a little knit or a scarf to your outfit (even if it serves no purpose whatsoever).   It will add the colour you need to make your outfit a touch more exciting.   This colour combo is one of my all time favourites.   Grey, black, mahogany, white, taupe backdrop.   Diggin’.

Are you getting ready for Easter?   It’s going to be chocolate filled.

Love to all xx

girls just wanna have fun

Sometimes, we wanna dress in something a little fun…and this is the subtle way to do it.   Some energetic heels, a printed tee, some ruffled hair.   For a mostly monochromatic girl like myself, a little bit of fashion flirty-ness can go a long way.

A relaxed shape tee and some skinny jeans is a staple part of my wardrobe.   As for today, a pop of printed pink silk is my outlet.   And definitely made me feel like having some fun!

Have a great weekend all xx

get your flare on

Well folks, they’re here… and they’re gonna be big.   Might as well get your head around them, because flares are rocking some serious presence in the fashion world.   All the magazines are shooting them, all the celebs are wearing them, but most importantly, they look super chic on.

In know you die hard fashionistas are with me, but I sense some of you out there rolling your eyes as you read.   “I’m too small/short, back to the 70’s, I’m gonna sit this trend out” etc, etc.  But before you judge too quickly, I have some evidence they could be good for you.   UK Women’s Health magazine has just published an article naming the flare “best jeans for shorter legs” that adds inches to your height.   This is due to the fact that when worn with a heel, they scrape the floor-line actually elongating your leg and making them look longer.   True story!

I ask that you at least try a pair on (these J Brand ones are hitting stores soon) just make sure you wear a killer heel.    I want to know the outcomes!

Big love xx

monochromatic layers

Outfit of the week!   Subtle prints and monochromatic layers are the go go here.   You can’t go wrong styling pieces like this together and adding more items to your look adds depth and makes it a touch more interesting.   The more layers the better, you know me!

A vest is such a great piece for our Australian climate.   It can double as a jacket without the warmth aspect.   I’m crushing on high necklines and cut away shoulders at the moment.   This Joie silk dress is perfect to wear over jeans and ties in really well with the soft taupe and black.   As for these J Brand ripped, slightly tye-dyed, scrunchy-at-the-ankle, comfortable as ever jeans?   I’m in love!

Have a great day all xx

slouchy

So much relaxed deconstruction showing up…lots of voluminous trousers, slouchy knits, ballooning coats and billowing trenches.   I’m so in love with this look and a loose pant like this is the perfect place to start building your outfit.

You can’t go wrong with a long shirt and a knit tied around your neck or over the top as a layer.   This Hunky Dory coat is a gem, it’s the perfect weight to throw over and gives even more volume.

Simple, over-sized goodness.   Does it for me everytime!

Happy Friday everyone, lots of love to all xx
