What I Wore | Style it Project July

Style it Project July 2014Style it Project is all about sharing your style.  Rachel from Redcliffe Style and I select one piece each month for Style it Project.  Usually an affordable and easily accessible piece, like Style it Project July‘s piece – the Bonds Long Sleeve Tee in Black

You probably already have a classic black scoop necked long sleeve tee in your wardrobe.  If you don’t, then do yourself a favour and grab the Bonds Long Sleeve Tee here!

By keeping the rest of my outfit in tones of black and neutral tan and camel, the merlot tights add a fab colour pop, and the contrasting tan leather belt, with additional help from the variegated stripes, defines my (practically non existent) waist.  Click for more tips on how to fake a waist.

style it project 1.jpgI added a snuggly oversized Country Road cardigan because, dudes, it is way too cold to just wear a long sleeve tee at the moment! I accessorised with House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst studs in white leather, and a Mimco hairclip – the prettiest bug you ever did see.

I am clearly a coldhearted woman as I require layers.  Plus a huge cashmere scarf.  Not to mention a beanie.  And the other layers not shown here! I teamed my Bonds long sleeve tee with NYDJ skinny jeans, a cobalt fine gauge Country Road knit and my beloved Burberry cashmere scarf – a gift from the Welshman way back when.  Shows the power of an investment piece.

I’m accessorising with my bargain boots – DECJUBA leather biker boots picked up in the January sales for $30!  Loving my Lady Chatterley’s Affair woollen cable knit hat with ridiculously fun fur pom pom, and my pretty as a picture Avalise Jewellery pieces made from vintage spoons, plus my gorgeous Honeydew & Violet stacking rings with semi precious stones.

I selected rings with our birthstones, but as Boyo’s wasn’t available, I chose citrine.  I didn’t realise that I’d gone with a traffic light theme!  I feel like singing every time I see them. “Red light, yellow light, green light, go!  Crazy little woman in a one man show.”  A sweet 10 points for anyone who recognises these song lyrics!

Avalise JewelleryMy Avalise Jewellery earrings were $25, and the bracelet $35.  My Honeydew & Violet 1940s inspired sterling silver stacking rings are $15 each or get a discount when purchasing 3 or more with code stack at checkout.
