Frocktober 2014 | Days 24-31

Kimba Likes Frocktober wearing Basque for Myer dress with Gorman sandals

Frocktober Day 24 and it was pretty girly dress day.  Looks like I got the memo with this Basque (a Myer label) pretty girly dress with a vintage feel.  I teamed it with Gorman sandals and a coordinating Sterling & Hyde^ necklace.

Kimba Likes Frocktober wearing Oasis dress over Verily bamboo slip

A very hot day for Frocktober Day 25 was the perfect occasion for an Oasis floaty dress layered over a bamboo tank slip from Verily.^  Teamed with the cutest ever Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators hair clip and studded Sambag suede ballet flats.

Kimba Likes Frocktober wearing Seed sunfrock

Frocktober Day 27 and it was another very hot day, just demanding another cotton sunfrock.  This ditsy floral printed one is by Seed, and is just on the edge of being a teensy bit short.  The oversized fit compensates for that, plus it was just too damned hot to bother.  I’ve teamed it with Mox in Mint* and an Alannah Hill hair flower.

Kimba Likes Frocktober wearing an adorable Boho Australia kaftan dress from Shabby Sisters with Sass & Bide belt

Frocktober Day 28 and I’m wearing a really lovely kaftan style smock by Boho Australia from Shabby Sisters.  It’s so lovely to wear and oh so pretty.  Sadly now sold out in the aqua but I think there might still be a couple left in the navy print.

I’ve teamed it with super cute earrings by Kenzie Accessories from Vintage Pip, Nordic Fusion clogs, Witchery mini bucket bag, Mimco headband, and an amazing embroidered fabric belt by Sass & Bide.

Kimba Likes Frocktober wearing Country Road dress with Payless sandals

This was one of my most popular dresses for Frocktober 2014, as judged by my Instagram peeps.  Frocktober Day 29 starred a really gorgeous printed kaftan style dress from Country Road, featuring an unusually shaped circular skirt.  It’s longer in the back and front than the sides, which makes for a lovely swishy effect – cooling too!  I’ve teamed it with simple black sandals from Payless Shoes.

Kimba LIkes Frocktober wearing Boom Shankar dress with New Look clog sandals from Payless Shoes, Mimco hairclip

Nikki from Styling You featured this lovely Boom Shankar dress in her regular Model & Me series, and I just had to make it mine!  I adore the geo print, the colours, the uber flattering shape and did I mention pockets? We love pockets!

I’ve teamed it with a gorgeously detailed Mimco hairclip and New Look faux wooden clogs from Payless Shoes.

Kimba Likes Frocktober wearing Three Parsons dress with OzSale bag, Ruby Olive necklace and Payless Shoes sandals

The final day of Frocktober and I decided to rock this gorgeous Three Parsons dress, which I received as a thank you gift.  Isn’t that lovely!  This T shirt dress is oh so flattering and comfy to wear.  Check out my Three Parsons new season picks here.

I’ve teamed it with black sandals from Payless Shoes, Ruby Olive^ statement necklace and a navy leather woven bag from OzSale*.

Phew!  All done!  That was my third year of Frocktober in a row.  What do you think?  Should I go again next year?  How could I mix it up a bit?

    That dress from Country Road is OUTGRAGEOUS! Totally fabulous and gutted I don’t own it.

    I found Frocktober really tricky this year, no idea why. You rocked it as ever.
