River Walks in White & Bright

Finally Spring has sprung. Which means busting out white and neon by the river!

White cropped denim – Zara. Neon vest – H&M. Cardi – old. Trainers – New Balance

Brace Yourself

Finally! Braces! I have been looking for a pair since Summer

A rather fabulous friend spotted them in H&M (which I hadn’t considered checking!)

Simple black stretch with bronze clip detail. They come with silver too but doesn’t look as sharp

I got into a bit of a twist fastening the back clip, they have to be perfectly aligned otherwise it throws off the symmetry

Surprisingly comfy and takes an otherwise simple look up a notch

Friday Flares

I woke up thinking about ‘That 70’s Show’ with Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. I used to love seeing their awesome retro outfits.

Polka neck tie – no idea. Bag – Kate Spade. Flats – Aldo. Vest – H&M

Hight waist flares – 7forallmankind. Gold bracelet – animalgoround (Bangkok)

Happy Friday All

Nearly-Friday-Flares

I have had these Mankind Flares for nearly 7 years. Even though my body shape has changed and these trusty strides are more faded and tattered, I love them even more. Like a good friend that never lets you down.

And here I am, working on my smile 🙂

Black Vest – H&M. Jacket – Zara. Jeans – 7ForAllMankind. Polka dot flats – Trenery. If you are tall, you can pull off this slightly looser high-waist fit, but if you are a shorty-pants, I recommend a tighter waist and thigh area to make sure you don’t look like you are walking in a denim sack.

Leather Trim

A gorgeous pencil skirt is always a work wardrobe staple. This black and white beauty with leather trim, takes the classic work pencil to an entirely new level of fab. I just love the leather detail across the waist band and down the middle at the front. And the fact the back is slightly longer than the front so the side-view rocks.

I find it rather amazing and cringe at the same time, that my skirt literally matches the black and white paneling of my handbag. To an outsider they must think ‘good grief, this woman is serious about fashion’ but between you and I, we know this was a total (albeit happy) coincidence.

The only word of caution I have is that you need to constantly look down to ensure the leather stripe is exactly in the centre. Every time I stood up it has shifted slightly. So it is a rather high maintenance skirt, but well worth it if you ask me. And by the end of the day I was simply ‘feeling’ for the stripe and adjusting mid-step. Coz that’s how we fashionistas roll.

Skirt – Zara. Heels – Nine West Caress. Jacket – Mango. Black vest – H&M. Bag – Charles & Keith.

The black side panels are especially flattering as have a slimming effect on the eye.

Stripes in Paradise

I was re-living my vacation pics (to prolong the happiness) when I realised I have a ‘stripe’ theme going on and thought this was worth a post because stripes are awesome.

This is one of my fave holiday dresses because it is cute and comfy. G2000 – similar here. Bag – TopShop – similar here. Diamante flats – Aldo.
