Casual Cafe Style

UnModels often ask styling related questions. By far the most FAQ is… How do I create that oh, so effortless, casual cafe style?? You know the Kate Hudson, Sienna Miller, ‘I just threw this on’ look. It’s the trickiest style of all! It takes a lot of twigging and it ain’t easy!! But it’s well worth devoting the time and energy to. After all, our lifestyle is casual and we do love cafes!

An early lakeside walk at Hyde Park was a weekend highlight. I wore one of my fave casual looks… a maxi! This soft cotton, dip-dyed Bali maxi, is a tad shorter at the front. It’s ice blue-green and a dream to wear.

Easy breezy.Tan Bali thong sandals and slouchy, studded bag from ‘Downtown’ boutique Bali. Tan tone is the all-time casual shoe/bag colour! It just works!!

Loads of happy beads create that Boho look and add colour to a plain outfit. The studded, frayed leather belt is also from… Bali!

The maxi is a touch see thru, so I added a long-line, boob-tube underneath. Casual, comfy, easy. Bunny shades by Karen Walker.

After our lake-scapade, my fave blogtographer, Nicole and I wandered up to the cafe strip in Lake St and treated ourselves to a fab brekky indulgence at Tarts. Nic’s cafe style (Above L), consisted of Jag, white, cropped skinnies, teamed with a fab orange ‘n cobalt blue tunic top by House of Wilde. She purchased it from ‘The Annexe’ in Mt Hawthorn. Loads of orange beads add individuality.

UnModel Jacqui (above) came in for an AndAndrea Styleover. She wanted a beachside, cafestyle outfit. A straw and rope, Country Road festival hat, Charlie Brown navy, drapey pants and a sass & bide loose leopard tee, created her carefree look.  

Of course, if you want to be hot on trend at school drop-off, or when having a cuppa, an over-sized white tee and these Alexander McQueen, Birdie print leggings are brand new at Myer! Drool…
