Christmas / New Year Fashspiration

Getting excited about what to wear for Christmas and New Years! Here are my top looks! I found them on my ‘shopstyle‘ IPad app. It totally rocks and time flies as you sit and swipe. Fashion convenience, love it.

Grey Blazer & Mini

This look was first inspired by Kristen Wiig  in ‘Bridesmaids’ – did you notice all her adorable mini dresses teemed with cool blazers? I found this awesome site called ‘Budget Babe‘ with an entire section dedicated to her blazer fashion. Strangely I hadn’t really considered this delightful combo before and it has changed my wardrobe range massively.

Grey blazer – Zara. Striped mini dress – AllDress (similar) Neon heels – Aldo. Clutch – similar. Pearl necklace – Accessorize



Tropical Work

Once I got my head around the shorts-and-heels trend, it felt like a whole new world of options opened up. We all have shorts, and we all have heels, so this combo allows us to further extend our wardrobes without much additional investment. And, although I live in Thailand where it rarely gets cooler than 30 degrees, my office is freezing thanks to an automated air-conditioning system set to arctic ice. Hence the jacket.

Pink chino shorts – Mango $29.99 (sale, from $40), Grey Jacket – similar, Striped Top – Esprit, similar Gap $22.99, similar American Apparel $32. Orange stone ring – TopShop – similar here, Handbag – Kate Spade, black peep toes – Nine West Flute $99. Silver drop earrings – old Accessorize



We Love Bows

I like bows. Pretty, tasteful bows that double-up as belts. This dress has quite ‘severe’ lines (intimidating for meetings perhaps!)  so the waist belt-bow softens it nicely. The killer heels are a favourite, I am about 6ft7 in them but what the hell!

Nude peep toes – Aldo similar $70, Black dress – Espada
