I think it's time for another #everydaystyle roundup!
In case you are new to the blog, here is a little bit about what #everydaystyle is and why I do it (would you believe it’s NOT because I like having my pic snapped everyday!?)
Everyday Style is the brain-child of amazing blogging guru Nikki Parkinson from Styling You. She started Everyday Style so women everywhere could share their everyday looks, whether it’s for work, or play, or staying at home, or meetings, or party!It’s about admiring the style of other women, and sharing looks that you have out together no matter you lifestyle or budget (I may have even bought a couple of things based on other’s Everyday Style pics!).
Whether you use it just as inspiration, or you literally buy the whole look piece-piece someone is wearing (I’ve TOTALLY done that), Everyday Style is a fun and useful way to get your fashion fix.
So here are just a few of the outfits I’ve worn over the last few weeks (current season garments have links) Read More
yep. You read that right. I’m wearing a cardigan. For those of you that have had a 1-on-1 style coaching session, or attended one of my workshops, you’ll know that cardigans and I don’t really get on. You see, generally I don’t really think there is any occasion where a cardigan is the best option. There
Winter. I think it’s on its way, but living in Auckland, I’m never to sure. Saying that, I’ve definitely been starting to look at the longer sleeved, or thicker fabric options in my wardrobe recently. One of those such items that I think will be a perfect addition to my Autumn/Winter wardrobe is this cool
It’s been a while since I’ve done an everyday style wrap up so thought I owed you one 😉 Now, in case you are new to the blog, here is a little bit about what #everydaystyle is and why I do it (would you believe it’s NOT because I like having my pic snapped everyday!?)
Oh hey! I’m SO excited to bring you the first blog in a new series I’ve created with fellow NZ blogger, Monique from Dressing Up. You know when you meet someone and you just go, “oh yeah, you are my people” – that’s me and Mon. We’re both passionate about giving women, ALL women, no
editors note: I try really hard to make sure things I feature on the blog are available for you to buy, but I can't always buy new things to feature on the blog and I will occasionally delve into the back of the wardrobe and use something I've owned for a while. I'll always do my best to offer you alternatives that are similar though. okies? cool.
So this one time, I had a baby, and all of a sudden, I couldn't wear dresses, because most dresses are hard to feed in, so I became friends with skirts.
That is pretty much how this blog post started!
I was heading out to meet some friends for coffee and wanted to get out of my 'casual' uniform of pants and a tee, but my usual go-to for something a little more dressy is a dress. (duh. dress. dressy. makes sense right?)
Anyway. I rummaged through the wardrobe, as I'm trying VERY hard to shop what I've got for the next few months (more on that in a later post), and I found this fun skirt from Asos (and before you ask, it's from two years ago, but I've given you other options below.)
I thought it was the prefect candidate for a 1 item, 3 ways make-over! Who knew, so much versatility in a wee pencil skirt.
So here are the three looks I created, that you can replicate in your own way, using a printed pencil skirt.
LOOK 1: Daytime Casual
Girly catch-ups are one of my fave things, and I've missed them in the last 6 months while the tiny human has been consuming most of my time.
I'm looking forward to getting back into them, and this is the perfect outfit for that! Or just for running around on a regular day. It's the trainers see, the casual-down the whole look, and you can literally run around all day.
Outfit details: SheIn crop top approx $19 (US $14)* | Asos culottes $29.50 | Andrea Moore “Cruise” sunglasses in black $145 on sale | Alias Mae heels $179.95 One of my style goals was to add more colour back into my summer wardrobe this year. I was feeling like I had gone all neutrals and
This is one of those style tricks that people are often too scared to try because they aren't sure how to do it - The Print Clash.
But actually it's a whole lot easier than you think.
I love a good print clash (which you'll know if you follow along with #everydaystyle on Facebook and Instagram), and its one of those things that I feel can elevate a look instantly. It makes your outfit that little more daring..... ooooooh daring! We like daring.
I've got three different looks to show you, and I'll explain how I've chosen the prints to clash it's a WHOLE lot easier than you think!
In a nutshell, you want to make sure your two prints have ONE THING IN COMMON. So maybe it's the colour, maybe it's the intensity, or maybe it's the theme of the print..... but if you remember that, you'll be print clashing like a pro in no time!
So here are a couple of tips I've got to help you get your print-clash on easily.....
PRINT CLASH RULE 1 - same colours, different print

Now I'm usually a blazer girl through and through, but a new shaped jacket has caught my eye recently and I think I'm in love..... The Printed Bomber Jacket.
Traditionally, Bomber Jackets used to be big, and over-sized and frankly, not to flattering on anyone with a waist, boobs or hips (oh hey all of the things that I have)....
But recently, I've noticed that the bomber jackets in store are smaller, more fitted and more lightweight, making them a much more flattering fit. Yay right?
So not only is the shape more figure-friendly than it used to be, there are FAR more colours and prints to play with now!
I picked up this super-fun printed bomber at Zara recently, and I couldn't help but share it with you, as well as a few tips on how to style a printed bomber, AND a few others that you can get your hands on....

Yay! My first style post of the year. Man it feels good to be back!
And what better way to kick the year off with a 1 item, 3 ways post. I love doing these posts because a) they make me work my styling brain, and b) more importantly, it shows YOU, my lovely reader, the versatility that different items can have in your wardrobe.
So let's start with a pair of culottes. And no, the 80s didn't call for their pants back. Trust me on this one! This style of pants is the perfect summer pair!
They give you great shape through the waist, but are loose and floaty over the legs, plus, they highlight the ankle, which is the slimmest part on any leg - boom!
I bought a gorgeous printed pair from Veronika Maine late last year that I've used in the post - they are no longer on the website, but are still in store! I've also included 3 pairs that you CAN get your hands on online at the end of the post.
So let's get into it! Read More
