Oh, how I love a rusty tone.   Layered with spongy cardi-like knitwear, leather, black denim and this perfect cheese cloth jumpsuit.   This outfit has many faces, many dimentions.   But the combination of colours is my favourite part.

sport luxe

Who says you can’t vamp up your sport-luxe look with black leathers and killer boots?   After all, I did just leave the yoga studio and am popping in to work for a few hours on my way home.   I love the fact that today’s active wear is so high fashion that they can collide seemlessly together and almost goes unnoticed at the office.

I think my black Nikes would have been a good option here too, if I really wanted to look like I’ve been good : )

troop j brand

Saluting utilitarian fashion!   I jumped at the chance to be a part of #troopjbrand and for such a wonderful cause.   J Brand are donating $100 to the Downtown Women’s Shelter for everyone posting their look.   I couldn’t stop at one piece however, so I went the double for my take on the utility look.   This skirt is truly amazing, fits like a glove and the vest is spunked up with drawstring ties that create volume and shape when tweaked.

Bless military green.   It never ceases to amaze me how this divine shade comes and goes in much shorter cycles than most colour trends.   A military green trend happens every few years.   We all need green at times and this earthy, almost neutral hue is easy on the eye and easy for most to wear.   I hope you stay a little while pretty thing.

street style luxe

A little street style luxe on the blog today.   Teaming a really gorgeous floor length LBD with some sneakers and a long coat or trench of sorts will definitely do the job.   So simple, yet so effective.   Not to mention comfortable!

I hope you all had a wonderful mother’s day on the weekend, it was such a beautiful day.

You know I love a layer.   Well here I go again, up to my old tricks again.   I found this fab little Talulah dress and doesn’t it look great all pimped out with the tied up jacket and gilet?   So this vest is another one from the Fifideluxe Archives.   It’s a Rare piece (not made anymore unfortunately) and being military green, it’s made it’s way onto the scene again after many years in hybernation.

I think everything is more exciting when you add layers.   Layer up baby.
