Pop of Blush

My second post featuring my new hounds-tooth cropped Zara trousers. Why? Because they totally rock and I keep seeing inspiration of new ways to style them. Seems everyone is into printed cropped trousers lately.

And yes, this is me with my face in my coffee cup. I was having one of those mornings where I couldn’t let go of my caffeine and therefore pretended to make it part of my pic.

I think the dusty pink jacket (Mango – similar) and shoes (Nine West) make for a much softer look than my previous post with black heels. White linen top – Zara – (similar with round neck). Bag – Charles & Keith.

Have you discovered ‘Today I’m Wearing‘ ?? It’s a style-sharing site for normal people (not just posh bloggers who get free designer clothing!) to share their daily looks. Best part is that the mobile app works really well. Simple to upload, crop, label, post & vote. LOVE IT. Here’s my profile page:

City Sleek

As you may have noticed, I am loving three-quarter length trousers. First it was my jeans, and now, these delicious white cropped ones with a low-rise, non-dig-in waist band. White always feels really chic – just remember the tan Spanx. Also love the capped sleeves on this bright top.

White cropped trousers – Gap (new collection). Tangerine top – Zara. Pink jacket – Mango. Nude peep toes – Aldo. Bracelets – Kate Spade and local market stacks. Nails – Revlon

Pretty Woman

Every girl in the entire world will remember the silk brown and white polka dot dress worn by Julia Roberts to the horse races in ‘Pretty Women’. A dress so iconic and classic, it transcends age and time. Sure, we all need a modern equivalent, and this post is dedicated to exactly that. Iconic prints, fabrics and shapes, refined for the modern day working woman.

Mad for stripes

I am loving stripes this season. Fabulously nautical and very flattering, even the horizontal ones!

This simple black and white striped mini dress can be dressed up with heels or worn with ballet pumps and a cute jacket. And it’s super comfy and non-clingy. Find the stripe that works for you.
