Style it Project | colour pop
The chambray shirt dress that was the hero of Style it Project June is just perfect for layering. I deliberately bought the Mix Apparel Chambray Shirtdress one size too big so I could wear a warm long sleeve top underneath.
In this outfit, I’ve teamed a thick cotton spandex long sleeve top from Brown Sugar as the bottom layer and an ancient Saba knit as my top layer. I’ve added some interest with fabulous patterned tights from Bella Emporio Rozelle, a coordinating Gorman belt and my ubiquitous Hush Puppies boots from The Iconic.
Honestly, I can’t stop wearing them! They go with everything, are super comfortable and a real talking point every time I leave the house.
I teamed a bold red lip and brow with prettily delicate Uberkate paper plane necklace, The Jewel Collective Andromeda studs and my Usual Suspect Honeydew & Violet and Tiffany & Co sterling silver sentimental arm party.
Style it Project | floral fantasy
Oooh, don’t you just love freshly done hair? I’m newly coloured, cut and curled here, and well, let’s be honest, loving myself sick.
I’m wearing the same Mix Apparel Chambray Shirtdress with my Bella Bodies sleeveless Camyz underneath. It’s always hot at the hairdressers. And freezing cold in the movies. What’s with that?!
Oh, look, it’s my favourite boots again. Honestly, I told you they go with everything. They really do. Blue and black is my favourite colour combo, so I’ve teamed them with Bella Bodies tights. Love how the black just makes the boots pop even more.
A simple black leather belt defines my waist, without making a statement. My gorgeous Three Parsons AW14 Navy Floral Jacket is taking care of that for me. In fabulous floral style.
Style it Project | cricket chic
I finally had the opportunity to head out to Macquarie to check out the glam new shopping extravaganza. The H&M was just fantabulous. My girlfriend and I stocked up for our sons’ winter wardrobes, just in time for school camp.
It’s been the trigger for the last couple of years for Boyo. He just simply doesn’t get cold. He’d quite happily wear shorts and T shirts year around. If he gets cold, he’ll add a beanie. If I nag him enough, he’ll add a hoodie. He make me feel cold just looking at him! As I don’t want to look like a neglectful mother, I stock up on winter weight hoodies, jeans and drop crotch joggers to pack for school camp. He wears them under duress for the rest of winter – and grows out of them by the time the next school camp rolls around!
I saw someone carrying this cricket jumper-eseque knit in H&M, but was unable to locate another one in store. Eventually, I saw them put it back on a rack. I immediately pounced, saw it was my size and that, as they say, was that! I swear I wasn’t stalking them – we just happened to be following each other around!
I love the slightly too long sleeves – so cosy! Rather fancy the contrasting cuffs and collar. Adore the cable knit – so retro cute. The oversized wider shape? Just perfect for throwing on, feeling comfy yet looking casually chic.
I teamed it with my Mix Apparel Chambray Shirt Dress. This one is a paler shade with a half button up front, and I’m wearing my size. I added my current go to pieces – my Crossroads Comfort Tummy Trimmer jeggings, and yes, again, my Hush Puppies Yelena boots from The Iconic. Now sold out in the blue, but still available in blondie beige and black.
Completing my cosy comfy casual chic weekend style? A hairbow of course! Love this divine Boho Panda Topknot Headband by Hound + The Hare. You can buy direct at their Etsy store. Kenzie Accessories are Hound + The Hare stockists too (check out their other fabulous handmade quirky goodies too!)
