Leather Love

This is such a relaxed look for me, perfect for the weekend. This is a look I would wear to an outdoor festival, concert or BBQ. Even though this look is head-to-toe neutral, I mixed it up with using different fabrics. In this look Im wearing a satin blazer, jersey knit t-shirt, leather shorts and wedge sneakers. What I love about jersey knit tees is that you can easily knot it to give your basic tee some excitement. A little secret, these leather shorts are actually leather trousers I cut into shorts. I didnt have leather shorts so I thought why not, its summer, you can never have enough shorts. The blazer was something I added last minute to this look, to kind of dress it up a bit. On the flip side, I then dressed it back down by tying it around my waist. Topped off the look with wedge sneakers; leather shorts and wedge sneakers just go well together. I love the versatility of this look.

Girly Girl

As of late I’ve been loving the idea of pairing girly and boyish pieces together.

In this look I’m wearing a blush pink top with a peplum detail and statement necklace on top. I then balanced the look with some baggy shorts rolled up at the hem. I finished the look with some casual strappy nude heels; I kept the colours neutral with only a pop of colour.

Crop Stuff

Lately, this has been one of my favorite looks to wear when I go out. It’s feminine enough to show off your curves, and it also shows just the right amount of skin to remind the world that you’re also a lady. The crop top is still a huge trend – a great basic piece to have in your wardrobe to mix and match with dressy and casual pieces. Here I paired my striped piece with a satin pencil skirt and ankle strap heels all from Sirens. Kept my accessories to a minimum, all in gold and finished with a patent clutch.

Is it summer yet? There is just something about when the weather gets warmer – my mood is a lot more up beat, I notice that people are definitely more cheerful and for me personally its way easier to pick outfits out. Lately I’m getting into having flowers in my place, for now I go faux, but definitely will go the real deal soon. It is true what they say about flowers, it does lift  your spirits and put you into a much better mood. To kick-start this season I had to pull out one of my favourite pieces to rock when the weather gets warmer. Denim cutoffs are a must for me for the warmer weather. It’s a classic piece that you can pretty much pair with anything for a casually cool summer afternoon. in this look I paired mines with a white tee, blazer and nude pumps.
