Most of Australia didn’t get the message that it is autumn – there’s a freaking heatwave in Sydney. A girl can but dream of a cool night’s sleep underneath the duvet, being able to do anything without sweating (blinking, breathing, sitting for example) and hair that doesn’t frizz into a furry puffball.
But that didn’t stop us having a tonne of styling fun for the Autumn Style File style challenge. Here’s what I wore and how I interpreted the prompts.
Autumn Style File | white out
The first prompt for the Autumn Style File style challenge was WHITE OUT. White was the hot colour of summer, and has worked its way into my heart – and wardrobe!
I teamed a brocade ruffle hem skirt from Country Road with Viva La Brunch T shirt from Ruby & Lilli’s latest collection. Gold Stuart Weitzman plastic fantastic ballets, Trenery tan leather belt (I’m all about faking the waist) and Mimco headband complete my look. It’s shaped like a white feather, but reminds me of the Kiwi silver fern. Obvs had to have it!
I went shopping during the day and picked my my Style it Project gillie flats. I’m in LOVE!
Autumn Style File | leopard lovin’
Leopard Lovin’ had to be included for my Autumn Style File partner, Sarah from She Writes. It’s her signature and she works it like a boss!
I teamed my Ruby & Lilli Coral Bay Dusk tank with 17 Sundays shorts and Witchery peep toe loafers.
If you feel you’re neither skinny nor young enough to wear shorts, please tell yourself that age is just a number and that whilst it is sometimes too cold to wear shorts, you’re never too old to wear shorts!
I added a sweet little arrow necklace from Vintage Pip and kowhai earrings I picked up in Kaikoura on our summer holiday.
Autumn Style File | Get to the Point Toe
Couldn’t WAIT to wear my Style it Project gillie flats again. Ridiculously comfortable and cute to boot.
I teamed them with Rockmans boyfriend jeans and my Bohemian Traders Moroccan Summer sweetheart top for a trip to the hairdresser.
Look! Fresh new shiny hair! Upped the copper colour – bright as a new penny!
Autumn Style File | jumpsuit to it
A sweet little minty fresh silky River Island playsuit was the perfect piece for a super hot ickily sticky day.
Not going to lie – it isn’t the most flattering piece in my wardrobe. Am I bovvered? The hell I am. Comfort is key.
Autumn Style File | lovely lace
Another sticky hot day called for shorts – yep my 17 Sundays got rolled out again. Pull on perfection. Teamed with Forever 21 stripe top with lace shoulder detail, and a Ban.d0 cotton lace hairbow – both purchases from my Big Four Oh My Gods trip to LA. All that shopping time paid off!
Autumn Style File | earn your stripes
Lobster hairbow and leopard loafers added some print clash action to my Bohemian Traders swing T shirt. I was thrilled when I came across a pair of men’s 501s in an op shop one day – just the thing to customise into distressed shorts.
Autumn Style File | get waisted
I’m all about faking my waist as often as I possibly can! I’ve teamed a Rodney Clark retro cute skirt with Ruby & Lilli Lucky T shirt, and cinched my waist with a Seed belt.
