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”

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!

!aShoeStory

Just seeing the word “shoes” makes me smile but seeing “50% off women’s shoes” turns me into a bubbling mess – heart beating fast, butterflies in my stomach, weak at the knees!… Okay a bit of over exaggeration but you get my drift.

On one of my usual procrasti-shopping browsing I happened to land upon theiconic, and there it was in a small banner “50% off shoes”.  Having bought shoes already off The Iconic, I knew they would’t fail to deliver some stellar deals.

So after 15 minutes of asking  myself “do I really need shoes?” and trying not to think about my bank balance, I bought:

wpid-img_20141214_051715.jpg

Back left: Rimi peep-toe wedges

Centre: Gemstone

Back right: Alexa Block heels

All three: Spurr

The peep-toe wedges are SUPER comfy as are the flats. I’m yet to find the best outfit for the block heels (I’m thinking a midi skirt and a box top…)

I highly recommend the wedges as it is suitable for the office and for a night out.

Style tip:

For a easy and chic look, pair these FAB wedges with black jeans, a tee & some eyeliner!

Because a T-shirt can be fancy too

Until next time…
