Runaway

Shirt- Mix Apparel (similar here, and here)
Shoes- Asos (here)
Sunnies- RayBan (here)


The shape of the hem line, the vibrant print, what's not to love about this skirt.  There is even a matching crop top which I am coveting right now, but for now I think a denim shirt is a perfect match.

The leather look: How to style it right

Leather pieces are wardrobe staples!  So many things are made from leather now, think jackets, skirts, shorts, dresses, bags, shirts, belts, shoes and watches – just have a look at the leather looks on display at http://universalstore.com/.  Here are a few tips on how to wear leather to make it look stylish and fit your personality.

Head-to-toe leather is definitely something to avoid. Try to pair your leather pieces with different fabrics and textures, or you might end up looking like a character from the Matrix. For example, try a more loose fitting leather skirt with a cotton, silk, or satin top tucked in. Or a leather jacket with skinny jeans and a loose fitting pretty top- so chic.  So the message is, if opting for leather in your outfit, keep it simple; choose only one leather piece to wear and contour it against other textures and colours.

Leather doesn’t have to be just black! A peach leather top can be the perfect edgy addition to a casual daytime outfit. White leather can be chic and sexy and is a versatile way to incorporate leather in a more subtle and innocent way. If you can’t seem to get away from the black leather, change it up by adding a colour somewhere else, like your accessories. Leather is one of the fabrics that can go with anything, as long as you have the confidence to own the look! Guaranteed, whatever you have in your closet, if you pair it with a leather jacket, your outfit is now complete.

Not sure about wearing leather? Start small, mix-and-match, and be confident. Play around with leather pieces to see what works best for you and your closet.  Try a beautiful leather bag, a fabulous statement watch,or stunning shoes.  Get used to leather in smaller doses before splurging on something bigger. The best fashion moments come from taking chances and being confident. Just go for it! If it doesn’t work the first time, go back and change it up.

Lovey Dovey

Shoes- Asos (here, also in white here)

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that I had the amazing opportunity to be involved in a photoshoot with Target Australia for Dannii Minogue's new petites range.  It was such a treat to have my hair and make up done, and of course get to have a play with the range, which includes some fantastic pieces!  Anyway there will be more on that on the blog in due course.

Given that my hair and makeup was looking waaaaay more spiffy than usual I had to take the opportunity to photograph this white dress.  Very Summery, but hey we are more than half way through Winter ;) This is a size small, which is a little bit big on me giving it a bit more of a dropped waist look.  On another note, how hot are these shoes!

Another adorable merino wool knit beanie by Acorn Kids!  I actually took these pics of Ash a couple of months ago, I can't believe how the time has flown and how much older he looks in only 2 months.
