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!

Back To Basics [Stripes]

Hi Everyone!

This will be the last post from my ‘Back To Basics’ series.

Here are my previous posts:

Back To Basics [Khaki]

Back To Basics [Black & Grey]

Back To Basics [Polka Dot]

STRIPES

Some people hate them and others love them. I definitely love them! I do not know if the whole rumor about horizontal stripes making you look wider is true but that does not bother me.I generally choose an outfit in the order of whether it is 1) comfortable, 2) stylish and 3) flattering.

image1Both of the skirts in this post are pleated which are so flattering and I love the flowy effect. The navy skirt was my mothers and as soon as I saw it I fell in love. There is nothing wrong with looking through your mum’s wardrobe, you will be surprised at what you would find especially if they have kept their old outfits and vintage pieces.

image2I paired the second outfit with a bright ombre scarf. This breaks up the monochrome effect in the outfit. Tan coloured shoes and bags go with EVERYTHING! Like stated in the previous post, this bag is from H&M for ONLY $5. Also, these shoes are from Rubi Shoes for about $10.

Back To Basics [Khaki]

Hi Everyone!

Firstly, I want to apologize for the inconsistency with my blog posts and for having a 12 day gap between this post and my last one.It is almost time to go back to university and there are so many things happening at once. I am planning on dedicating one day next week just to my blog, taking the photos and writing up captions, ready to post when life gets a little hard to handle.

If there are any particular blog posts you would like to see, please leave it in the comments below.

This is a continuation of my previous post about ‘Back To Basics [Black & Grey]’.

Today’s colour is one that I love just as much as BLACK. Yes that right,

I ❤ Khaki!

These Khaki chinos were very stylish and fashionable last year. I don’t know if they are still in style but I just love them. They are so comfortable and versatile during summer and winter.

If you are interested in my bag, I bought it from H&M a few days ago from the SALE for only $5! What a bargain!

 These outfits are really minimal but I think that they are so comfortable and stylish at the same time. FotorCreatedn

Back To Basics [Black & Grey]

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all having a lovely week ❤

As I was walking to work on Saturday, I was thinking about upcoming blog posts to create. I was wearing the outfit with the grey top and black pants, and I thought about doing a “Back To Basics” series of posts. I was loving how my outfit was so simple yet classy. Likewise, I am going through a phase where I am not wearing as much pattern or floral as I did before. I call it a phase because as soon as I think of an outfit involving patterns or floral I will just throw it on.

1

What do you think of when someone talks about basics or essentials in their wardrobe?

I definitely think of a pair of black slacks/pants. These may be slim fit, high waisted or boyfriend style which are a loose fit.

I also think of a simple black skirt. This can be high waisted or pencil. And that may be knee-length or maxi. It just depends on personal preference.

Everyone MUST have a black, white or grey simple top that can go with everything. They are amazing to have around especially during winter.

Finally, a pair of black shoes that are comfortable whether they are flats, wedges or heels.

3

I will match these outfits with a blazer for formal occasions or a cardigan for casual times.

4

I would usually wear the outfit with the pants during the day to work, shopping or  lunch. On the other hand, I will wear the skirt to evening events such as a wedding. I will just change the simple top for a shirt and switch the bag for a clutch/purse. 22

I realised that body chains are so in right now! I wish I had a body chain to go with this outfit. They are so affordable but every time I go shopping I forget to get one. DSC_00431

Similarly, can we just talk about how amazing STATEMENT NECKLACES are these days, especially the Ottoman themed necklaces!  They are just to die for! I think that this piece of jewellery will take this outfit to a whole new level.

Moss Green & Floral – OOTN

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week! As I am on holidays now I have a lot of spare time. This calls for one thing and one thing only. To make my own clothes! My mum buys a variety of different fabrics types, lengths and styles. Instead of letting the fabrics just sit there and having the sowing machine collect a layer of dust, I thought I would make the most of the resources I have. The skirt in the following pictures is one of my creations. It is so difficult to find skirts that are the right size, shape, style, colour or ones that do not have slits. This was my second attempt and it is certainly the best out of the two I have made. Hopefully when I gain a little more experience, I will do a tutorial on how to do it.

Outfit Details

Scarf: Cherry Blossom

Cardigan: ZARA

Skirt: I made it myself 🙂

Purse/ Clutch: Op Shop

Shoes: Big W

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!
