Sweats + Denim – OOTD

Hi Everyone,

If I was to describe my favourite way of dressing with one word it would definitely be:

C O M F O R T

Until a couple years ago, wearing trackies/sweats was considered unfashionable. Well to be completely honest, it still isn’t fashionable. I know many people who wouldn’t be caught dead in them and others who basically wear them everywhere.  I have seen people style amazing ootd with trackies and it inspired me to do the same.  I could probably dedicate a whole blog post to trackies ❤

Outfit Details:

Jacket: Coles [Mixed Apparel]

T-shirt: Kmart

Sweats/Trakies/Pants: H&M

Shoes: Converse

Bag: Target

So if you are from Australia, I highly recommend you take a look at the Mix Apparel website for amazing basics. You will be surprised at how affordable and the great quality of the items they sell. I was just doing grocery shopping at Coles and saw this denim jacket on sale for $15.

I am so glad that converse is back in style! I remember wearing them every day in my teen years, and having the most random and unique styles. Black and white Chucks go with every look. I especially love the edge it gives to an outfit with a dress or skirt.

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 [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.
