But are you wearing track pants?

No, it’s called Athleisure.

Where fashion meets comfort.

But baby isn’t it too cold?

I am in a forever love affair with dresses & shorts. The crux of the matter is that the weather is changing & most sensible folks will swap out those cheeky bum shorts with jeans, over-sized hoodies & better decisions.

I, not being so much on the sensible side, discovered a simple formula to transition summer stapes to winter wear, without having to answer:

But Baby isn’t it too cold?

But, how does your mood make your clothes feel?

 

Every morning I wake up with a different mindset & mood to the previous day. Some days I wake up feeling authentic & on better days I wake with a sense of bad-assery. Not only does my mood & mindset affect the flow of things but plays a paramount part in my outfit of the day or better knows as #ootd.

You see, on Monday I could be roaming free in a red babydoll dress with leopard flats & heart – shaped studs & by Thursday you would catch me in denim cut-offs, a white shirt with the first two buttons undone.

Some call it balance.

I call it “My Morning Mètier”

Get Cinched!

 

If there is one thing I love more than gluten free ginger cookies is the transitional season of Autumn. Give me an oversized sweater or T – shirt dress & I am happy as Carrie eating a $3 cupcake in grey knee – high socks on a bench ( Season 3, Ep. 5) !

Add a corset belt to a loose silhouette or pair with a white shirt & black wide leg pants for a sleek look.

Bows & Blue Hues

She’s lying in bed. She doesn’t believe in alarms but wakes up to the pressing need for tea. She looks over to the space next to her and sees last nights regrets – High Fidelity – waiting to be finished. Her straight hair twirls up into a bun and the kettle is set to boil. She think about her choices for the day in the shower and ponders if she needs to shave her legs. The tea is ready in last nights mug and her wardrobe full of dresses with tags on. She wears navy blue with black and steps out…

Thanks, I’ll take two

If history has taught us anything it is that the two piece trend is a wardrobe must have. Flashback to Fran Fine rocking a floral Jennifer Bawden outfit paired with her killer abs! I may not have the abs but I do love a cheeky two piece. Being on the shorter side, I did find it hard to find a skirt + crop combo that didn’t reach my ankles. This Ref piece was a steal, plus sustainable to the environment.

Is it always about the shirt?

 

Just like Carrie’s Dior Newspaper print dress, these panelled denim cutoffs continuously make appearances in my #ootd. The only difference is that Carrie is wearing Dior & I can only dream of Dior….

Back to the point, these denims can be paired with absolute anything – a white tee, a canary yellow blazer , a top hat or even a red mirchi shirt!

Something that is not devoid of badassery

This Bardot shirt is all business at the front & party in the back. The tie up detail adds a visual interest to the basic white shirt into a not so basic must have!
