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
Who doesn’t love a dress? So easy to wear – you only have to think about one thing, none of this “do I tuck the top in? Are the pants the right cut for this blouse” nonsense. Put the dress on and done! What I also love about dresses is the ability to dress them up
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
Instagram is my happy place. I love scrolling through and looking at all the pretty pictures of pretty ladies in pretty clothes. It makes me happy. (it’s also easy to do one-handed while breastfeeding, not gonna lie). I get so much inspiration from the gorgeous outfits I see – and I don’t just mean by
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
I can see all the pear-shaped ladies going "tell me more!" and all the shorties out there saying "nah, not for me" BUT WAIT! As always, I'm a missive advocate of the idea that anyone can wear ANYTHING, it's all in how you put it together and style it.
Wide-leg pants are no different. Wearing them well no matter what your shape or size is all about the silhouette you create with your whole outfit.
Wide-leg pants are definitely making a comeback (although long live the skinny jean right?) so I wanted to give you guys some expert tips and tricks on how to wear them in your everyday life, regardless of your shape. So here's how you do it! Read More
