Maroon + Strips – OOTD/OOTN

Hi Everyone,

Since my previous post did so well, I thought I would continue with the topic of:

F A S H I O N

I am not a fashionista nor a stylist, just someone who enjoys dressing up for the odd occasion. [Well that’s if I’m not in my pyjamas or work uniform]. Today my lovely beautiful niece/best friend/photographer/stylist was home so I thought I would take advantage of this opportunity before uni starts and I once again neglect my ‘Creative Outlet’.

Outfit Details:

Necklace: Baazar in Turkey

Dress: Kmart

Blazer: Kmart

Shoes: Op Shop

Bag: Orginially from Forever 21 but I bought it from the Op Shop

This bag.

How beautiful is it. You can also use it as a clutch if you place the chain inside. There is nothing I love more than a versatile item.

So I was working around Chapel Street for the last 3 weeks and during my lunch breaks I went around to the numerous Op Shops in the area.  Let me just say it was amazing and I was in heaven. I bought these shoes from a Salvos store and they were:

~BRAND SPANKING NEW

~LEATHER

~COMFORTABLE

~FORMAL

Spring into Spring – Ombré Jumper, White Shirt & Bows

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t done an outfit related post in so long. These photos were taken a while back when  I used to randomly get inspired to dress up and ask my niece to take my photos. (Thank you Aleyley) I absolutely love this outfit and could wear it everywhere.

Is it me or do you just feel so much better about yourself when you are dressed in an awesome outfit?

Outfit Details:

Necklace: Ottoman Treasure (Thank you to my dearest friend Dee for this beautiful necklace. It is a little heavy but worth the pain because it looks amazing with everything.

Jumper: Kmart

Shirt: Op Shop

Skirt: David Jones

Bag: Typo

I am actually wearing  a men’s jumper but I got a smaller size and folded it up to make it a “cropped” jumper.  I always check the men’s section for awesome pieces like this one. It is  generally cheaper and the smaller sizes are usually available.

And you have probably seen this shirt in one to many posts. So it is kinda obvious how much I love it.  My favourite all time combo for all occasions would have to be:

Over sized shirt + Cropped Jumper +Pencil Skirt

Thank you to my darling friend Selda for this amazing gift. It goes perfect with everything and everyone knows I love a well structured bag with double straps. I have linked the bag below so if you are looking for an amazing laptop or uni bag, go ahead and check it out.

Summer Lovin’ – Floral Blazer, White Shirt & Emerald Skirt

Hi Everyone,

WOW!

I can’t believe it has been five months since my last post. What can I say, life just got in the way and blogging was thrown on the back burner. At the end of the day, blogging is my hobby and unfortunately I have not prioritized it well.

I am happy to share that I am currently employed and doing the job I love. Over the past five months, it has been difficult to balance work, school, family and friends since I have been working almost everyday. As it is approaching holiday season, I have countless special occasions coming up and I only thought it was right to share my outfits/ideas on my blog.

I had taken these photo months ago but did not want to post them without writing anything to accompany it.

Outfit Details:

Blazer: Cotton On

Shirt: Op Shop

Skirt: Op Shop

Bag: H&M

Shoes: Rubi Shoes

I absolutely LOVE this skirt!

I can’t remember if I posted about it previously on my blog but it is a favorite.

High wasited skirts are so flattering and I believe they make me look slim. And who doesn’t want to look and feel skinny?

A white shirt like mentioned on numerous occasions is a MUST HAVE! It would be an understatement if I say it goes with everything. When wearing a collared shirt, a statement and extravagant necklace turn your outfit from day wear to evening wear in seconds.

    Blazers

If it was up to me I would wear them every day. If you have been following my blog from the start, you will know that once the word ‘Blazer’ is mentioned, my heart skips a beat. I have provided the links to my previous posts about this amazing clothing type.

Bags with double straps are the new thing. FINALLY!

Use the small straps for an elegant look and if in a rush, throw over the long straps  and run. Well that’s what happens to me.

Each-to-their-own

P.S. As you can tell, most of my wardrobe is from the second hand store. I am looking into doing a post about tips and tricks to shopping at an Op shop. If you have any questions, leave them in comments!

Khaki & Floral – OOTD

Hi everyone!

I enjoy sharing photos of my outfits and links to similar items  on my blog. I hope that it is some sort of help and possibly inspiration for my viewers. Here are my thoughts and a little bit of extra information about some of the items in my outfit:    This outfit was a bit random.

I firstly established that I wanted to wear these harem pants because they are loose-fitting and perfect for a hot summers day. It is so random that I started planning my outfit around pants but I tend to do that a lot.  They didn’t have an elastic at the bottom, I added it myself because I found that it looked better.

 I bought this purse from Cotton On for ONLY $5! It is definitely my favorite purchase of the week. There are many more designs and I have linked one of them below.

I bought this maxi cardigan a couple of years ago. I LOVE how is so comfortable.

These sandals are in style right now and thankfully sold everywhere so they are extremely easy to find in store and online. I don’t know if it’s the pair that I have but they are uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time.

Also, a MASSIVE thank you to my beautiful niece Aleyna for taking these lovely photos! She is my number one supporter and also my biggest critic. Love you!

Styling Boyfriend Jeans & Celebrity Outfit Recreation

Boyfriend Jeans! They have been around for a while now but until recently, I didn’t really understand what all the hype was about. I have a new found love for them.  They are so comfortable, suitable for all occasions, loose fitting and amazing for all seasons; summer and winter.  In this post, I will display how to take a simple pair of jeans into an extraordinary component of an outfit. There are many places that sell them, for a variety of prices and I will provide details of some below. I usually like to wear jeans on a day to day basis for causal occasions with a nice jacket, over the shoulder bag and with some sneakers like New Balance or Converse. Likewise, I have started to wear these jeans for semi-formal occasions with a glamorous clutch/purse and some statement heels like wedges. As I was browsing the internet for celebrity outfits to recreate, I came across one of my favorite actresses Rachel Bilson wearing a pair of these jeans. She looks amazing and I love the way she has styled them. I have used these photos as inspiration, based my outfit around them and tried to recreate it to the best of my ability with what I had at home as well as adding my own little twist.
