Team Paris

 Jacket-Woolworths//Sweater-DIY//Shorts-Factorie//Bag- Céline
These are the first pair of high waisted shorts that I've bought. I've been on the look out for some that are a bit longer in length than the majority of the ones I've seen in stores. These caught my eye because of this fact! I love that they almost look 'vintage' in appearance, and of course the length is perfect for me. For this outfit, I tucked in one of my favourite sweaters and threw on this baseball/bomber jacket for extra warmth- I'm also wearing my ever-faithful cut out boots from Cotton On which I absolutely love! 

Have a lovely day everyone!!

Skip #Threewordwardrobe

SKIP - Three Word Wardrobe Campaign

When I was recently contacted to take part in the Skip ‘Three Word Wardrobe’ project, I was both excited and intrigued. It’s widely thought that clothing expresses emotion, and the thought that we dress according to mood appealed to me.

I knew that many colours emote a certain feeling, for example; we often associate pink with love, white with purity etc. So when I put this to the test, I wasn’t surprised to find that I chose my outfits based on what mood I happened to be in on that particular day.

I learnt that throughout the 30 day challenge, the days that I felt cheerful and happy were the days I chose to wear bright and cheerful colours such as pink and 
peach etc.

 Similarly, on the days where I felt tired, cozy, or simply ‘casual’ I would choose darker colours such as black, greys and browns.

There were also days, where I was feeling ‘brave’, or ‘courageous’- these were the days where I chose bold, bright and strong colours such as green, or strong fabrics such as denim.

I think it’s no secret, that clothing choices are largely based on emotions- put simply- we dress the way we feel. I now know that I am no exception, clothing, and especially the colour I wore related to my mood each and every day! 

SKIP want you to be a part of the #threewordwardrobe campaign, all you have to do is create a profile  upload your outfit pictures and give your #threewordwardrobe description of the fabric, colour and how you felt on that particular day! 

It's an awesome way to gather inspiration from outfit uploads from bloggers and other women, and compose a moodboard consisting of outfit inspirations from all genres! You can see all my uploads HERE
And don't forget to create your own profile and upload your outfit pictures! 

Have a wonderful day everyone!! 

The Perfect Trench

 Trench and Sandals-Witchery//Top-Mr.Price//Highwaisted Jeans-Factorie
When I first saw this trench in the store, it was instant love!
 I've loved the look of a spring/summer coat for so long now, and was desperate to get my hands on one of my own. This trench filled that need perfectly! It's so lightweight- which is great for warmer weather, and the softer, almost 'blush' tone makes it a lovely Spring time piece! I paired it with some plain high waisted black skinnies, a black top and these beautiful nude slide sandals for a casual outfit! 

 Have a lovely week everyone!!

Kimono and Booties

 Kimono-Mr.Price//Top-Country Road//Booties-Zara//Bag-Louis Vuitton
I am completely and utterly in love with these black booties! I suddenly feel the urge to wear them with absolutely everything I own! In fact, I don't even want to take them off:) For this outfit, I decided to pair them with this gorgeous black and white kimono, and accessorized with this beautiful statement necklace. I adore this outfit, it's such a great easy-going look!

 Have a lovely weekend everyone!!

Layered Up

Jacket- Cotton On//Brogues-Zara//Knit-Witchery//Bag-Céline
One of my favourite winter/fall looks is the layered up outfit. And now that the weather is 'topsy-turvy'... one minute it's cold, the next warm, this casual look is perfect for an everyday outfit. I bought this Safari jacket from Cotton On a few months back, and I loved it so much I bought it in khaki too! It's just the perfect fit, and it's great for spring too as it's so lightweight! For this look I decided to wear it with this silk and knit jumper, some distressed boyfriend jeans and my cut out Zara brogues. 

 Have a lovely day everyone!!

Wrap Cardigan

Cardigan and Brogues-Country Road//Necklace-Zara//Bag-Saint Laurent
This outfit feels so classy, especially the wrap cardigan. I decided to opt for a simple, elegant outfit by pairing it with black skinnies and my pointed black brogues- keeping the outfit very monochromatic. I adore this look- it's simplicity makes for a great everyday outfit, yet it still manages to pull off a bit of a 'dressed up' feeling! 
Have a wonderful day everyone!!
