Compiling this week's round up of posts hit closer to home for me. I think we can all relate to the times where stress builds up and blocks inspiration. Reading each of these individually was the exact refreshment I needed (hence "lemonade"), especially with my birthday coming up next week - total outfit planning mode.
Digging through my wardrobe over the weekend, I stumbled across this cute pair of vintage culottes I remember my mum picking up for me at least 15 years ago! Firstly I was thrilled that they still fit me, and secondly I had to laugh, thinking back at how much I loathed wearing these when I was younger!
Inspired lately by 50’s and 60’s fashion, I’ve teamed the culottes with a ruffled shirt, cardigan and bow which compliment the spotty print.
On a side note, this time next week I’ll be boarding a plane bound for overseas (so excited – can’t wait!), so apologies in advance, this will be the last outfit post for a couple of weeks, but no doubt I’ll pick up lots of great overseas bargains to share upon my return.
I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon raiding my mother’s wardrobe. Amongst the gems was this gorgeous box pleat dress. I love the pleating in the skirt, drop waist, brocade inspired print and of course the colours. Teaming with a green coat makes for a vivid alternative to traditional monochrome winter staples - thanks mum!
I picked up this great bandage skirt for a steal (A$10) and can’t stop wearing it. I like to team with ankle boots and a metallic clutch for a night out, or with a t-shirt and flats for something more casual.
My tip: When styling the bandage look avoid pieces that are too tight. Although a figure hugging style, there is nothing worse than a ceased circulatory system. To avoid bulging in the wrong places, try the next size up, or layer your bandage skirt/dress over smoothing underwear.
