Skinny Jeans & Tunics … Autumn 2013

xx

It’s only January …

but I can’t help thinking about

my Autumn Wardrobe.

I’m over last years bootcut jeans

so this Autumn I’m planning to wear

more skinny leg jeans …

The above pic

is the style I’m drawn to this Autumn …

I love the sleeveless longer top

swishy and relaxed

but still fitted to define the waist.

 I love that the skinnies are shiny

and the fact that the hem is over the boot

as this helps to elongate the legs

and of course a big bag is a must have!

Here’s the look again

except a little more casual …

 a cropped jacket gives definition

to the silhouette

and the vertical hemline

helps to slim the thighs.

 I especially love the wedge boots.

and lastly here …

this long lacy tunic top is so pretty …

it softens the look

and is extremely feminine.

I love the low hair bun too.

The black with the bright Orange

 is both striking and exciting,

 it’s also a great illustration of how  …

just as we feel the need

to introduce colour into our homes …

this Autumn 2013 …

Fashion will also see a return to Colour.

This week, even though

 I’ve been fabulously busy with my work …

I’ve still been thinking about

my Autumn wardrobe!

LOL!

.

.

A new shirt …

in my favourite Autumn colour …

cinnamon.

Lovely colour and style  …

with the added element of vintage …

with it’s peter-pan collar and tie

reminiscent of the 1950′s ‘prim and proper’ era …

which I will juxtapose with jeans and boots

.

and OMG!

I’m so in love

 with these new chestnut coloured suede boots!

.

.

A new fun bracelet …

and orange will make the perfect accent colour

.

.

 I’m embracing Autumn

with pretty flowers of Aster Daisies

in a new contemporary bottle.

Autumn Fashion Shopping 2012

As soon as it gets to February

I start thinking about shopping

 for my autumn wardrobe …

 these are the things

 that have ‘spoken’ to me so far …

.

.

Two new merino wool tops which I can layer …

one a creamy neutral with a pink undertone

and the other a purple undertoned grey

.

.

I fell in love …

 with the texture and warmth of this vest,

 it’s neutral colour with it’s pink undertone

.

These boots with their vintage patina

spoke to me also

see how they’re a low ankle height?

That’s the new winter look …

they can be worn with straight jeans

or with skinny leg jeans tucked into them.

The boots are grey and have a green undertone.

.

..

I really wanted some new bracelets too

and I loved the natural look of these,

see the charcoal beads?…

they have a purple undertone.

The reason I bought two is so

I can wear them on both wrists!

….

..

Just like in Interior Design …

the Vintage vibe continues in fashion

this Autumn/Winter

 off-set by natural textures

so mix it up with natural elements …

  think …

 wood, wool, leather and suede,

but most of all have fun with fashion!

Spring Shopping

 

Last weekend…

I went shopping in Melbourne

It was such fun!

 

 

I looked at all the shoes

but loved these ones

because of the wedge,

the bow

and the camel coloured leather

with it’s slight pink undertone.

 Some contemporary torquoise and gold jewellery

adds a complementary colour

and some youthful fun!

 

 

I loved the colour of this top too

and when I saw the puffed sleeve…

I knew it was for me.

I can dress it up

or

dress it casually with a pair of jeans.

 

 

I needed some new singlet tops too…

and they can be worn under the tee

on cooler days

and the peach scarf I just could not resist.

 

(photography & styling by me)

 

Because I obsess over colour…

I’ve studied what colours suit me best

the ones that compliment my eye and hair colour

and my skin tone

so now I always shop by colour

it makes shopping quicker and much easier

it also means that everything I buy

can be mixed and matched

avoiding costly shopping mistakes.

(and haven’t we all been there?!)
