Outfit of the day / Colour shock

I know there are a lot of people out there who think red and pink would never go together, but for me it's one of my favourite combinations when it comes to bright colours.  Naturally when I came across these pants there was zero hesitation about having them rung up and hung up in my closet!  Because these are so loud I prefer pairing them up with casual tees like this one to tone things down a bit and to make them more wearable on an everyday basis.  This also explains why accessories were limited, however I did have to add these colourful floral pumps because they were simply just too perfect not to be styled with these pants!
So have I convinced you that pink and red together really isn't that bad after all???

Three way tie / The maxi skirt

Do you find yourself wearing certain pieces with the same things every time?  This is why I've decided to start 'three way tie'.  Every morning I get up and throw together an outfit I challenge myself to wear things differently as much as possible.  This can help with that little voice in your head telling you that you have nothing to wear when in fact you do, you just need to rework what you have!
I'm kicking this segment off with the maxi skirt; a summer staple  that can have a lot of versatility.  See for yourself...

Here I've styled a casual summer look.  I've kept the top portion airy with a silk tank and gave it a flirty front knot showing a little bit of skin but not too much since the skirt is sitting high on my waist.  Keeping this look fun I added a bold necklace tying in colours of my tank and shoes.  That's that - an effortless summer style.

This look I've added layers to show how you can continue wearing your maxi into the fall season.  That's right!  There is no need to restrict your maxi to just the warmer months.  Here I've styled a casual tee that's got some length with even more in the back and threw on a denim vest for an additional layer.  To add a punch I used a fun coloured scarf to act as my accessory and switched up my strappy sandals for some open toe booties.

Maxi's aren't just for casual looks, you can dress them up too!  Complementing the grey skirt I added a silver metallic lace top that easily made things fancy.  With all the detailing in the top I kept the accessories minimal and stuck with the theme by wearing my metallic platforms.  You're now all dressed up so find somewhere to go!

Outfit of the day / Farewell Heat

The time has officially come to say good-bye to my favourite season.  Last week we had a final tease of hot weather that was immediately replaced with bone chilling, jacket wearing degrees in the matter of 24 hours.  My god I'm feeling slightly depressed thinking about how I'm pretty sure we are in for a long winter this year.  Yes, it can be fun looking forward to a change up of wardrobe and new fashion trends but the thought of cold weather makes it difficult to want to wear anything but comfy joggers.  Let's embrace a little sunshine through this outfit post before we completely accept the seasonal change that is happening shall we?

Outfit of the day / Clean classics

Since it's labour day weekend I thought I would feature some white pants and remind you that this won't be the last time because I go by my own fashion rules.  I actually got these pants a while back, as in a year ago, but put off getting them hemmed until recently so ta-da!  With such a crisp, clean look I added a statement belt and kept the remaining accessories simple.  The accessories featured in this post are courtesy of Project Dahlia who has a cute little etsy shop that sells adorable accessories for everyday and even accepts custom orders.  The bits that I'm wearing in this post are rose gold studs, horseshoes necklace (that I wear just about everyday) and a set of gold bangles.
