Sour Stripes

Sour lime and bold stripes shout out ‘Look at me’. You cant miss these neon pants!! This upbeat outfit was just the answer for a dull winter’s day.

Squeeze Me

The weather finally turned glum. Not to be deterred by grey clouds, I wore my neon citrus tunic, to spread a little sunshine and brighten up the day. In my ‘Liquorice Allsorts’ post, back in February, you saw my Shakuhachi summer tunic and pink slip, (bottom left). To ‘winterise’ it, and make it wearable all year round, … [Read more...]

Tally Ho

What do you do with last years khakis? You wear them of course! Trends come and go so quickly, it’s hard to keep up. Last year, it was all about the ‘Military’ look. This year, just dress up your military gear, as seen on the runways in Europe. Think  touches of leather, faux fur, velvet and gold chains. Add a beret and gloves … [Read more...]

Mix It Up

Some places draw you back like a magnet. This cafe above, has won me over, hook, line and sinker! Can you guess where I am….again?

Speed Dressing

Dressing in a jiffy is a breeze when you have a good pair of white linen shorts to rely on - they simply go with everything. A last minute decision to have a lazy Hillarys Marina brunch meant speed dressing was essential!   Baggy Country Road linen shorts above, are teamed with a Pilgrim lace singlet. The effect of the lace is lost with a black … [Read more...]

Pearls and Pastels

After a morning styling session, its coffee break time. With wishful thinking, this laneway next to Myer might one day spawn little expresso bars and micro cafes just like Melbourne. For now tho, there’s no hustle and bustle, it’s just a graffiti-lined, empty walkway. Oh … potential! I’m wearing a little ‘tone on … [Read more...]

Pseudo Jumpsuit

Another summer scorcher today meant a loose floaty outfit was essential for survival. Every time I wear this combo, people comment on my ‘jumpsuit’. It’s actually not a jumpsuit at all! The wide leg pants are high-waisted and have a self sash/bow. The frill front silk cami adds welcome volume to the bust-line and is loosely tucked … [Read more...]

His Time

Rodd & Gunn chinos from Myer City make a great change from the popular Aussie uniform of  ’jeans,jeans,jeans’!

Team with a baggy, white linen Country Road shirt for that cool Bahamas … [Read more...]
