Next

I had to have a booty shot, or two ; )
Silk shirt- Country Road
Necklace- Colette
Heels- Zara

I was so excited when UK brand Next chose me as one of ten Aussie fashion bloggers to complete in a 'style off' against ten of Britain's best as part of the Next International Style Challenge- Brit's v the Aussies.  I received this fabulous red pencil skirt from the Next SS12 collection for my styling challenge, and who doesn't love a styling challenge! 

My style I would describe as feminine and classic with a modern twist.  I love a really polished look. The skirt, the shirt and the black pumps are all such classic shapes and styles; I added the modern twist and a bit of fun with the addition of the bright silk shirt, oversize leopard print clutch, gold hardware and of course a smile : )

Gooooo Aussies!!

  40. You could tell that you love polished/modern looks. This is such a great look...love the similar color of the skirt and shirt but that they are separates. I think the necklace really pulls the whole thing together. Love it.
