Outfit idea when you have nothing to wear

So we all have days where we look in our wardrobe and think “I’ve got nothing to wear!” Not only that but there’s just not enough time to get dressed let alone think of an amazing outfit. But of course being the stylish you, you still need to look cute and put together. During these times you need a “go-to” outfit. Something you know you look good in, can chuck it on , dress it up and you’re out the door!

This is that outfit. This look is so quintessentially me. Why? Because it’s easy. And I LOVE easy outfits! It’s a “go-to” outfit that I whip out time and time again, just like my “blogger uniform” which you can find here . Whenever I travel I bring this combination, because it’s just so easy to customise and make different every time. I mean at the crux of it, it’s a blazer and jeans combo – so can you really go wrong? It is such a winning combination. If you don’t already have a blazer + jeans look that you makes you feel put together – you need to find one now!

Luckily ASOS is actually having a sale at the moment so I’ll include some of my favourite picks below! (PS – totally not sponsored, but I love ASOS so why not!)

One of the reasons I love this combination outfit so much I just how well it compliments any statement pieces. If you want to put the focus on shoes, keep the neutral colour palette and carry a simple clutch. If you want to take this for a night out, wear some sky high heels and killer earrings!

But today I wanted the focus to be on the bag because lets be honest, ever since I got my Chloe Faye all I think about is how I can wear it! I love how chic and stylish it looks, especially when paired with neutral outfits like in my most recent post. I am so glad I was able to get it in this coloured number because it’s just gives life to any basic look and instantly elevates the whole outfit! With it’s slick design, the pop of colour and it structural silhouette – its just love!

If you don’t have a blazer + jeans combo that you love yet, check out some of these pieces from ASOS and take advantage of the 20% off 24hr sale!

Blazers

Because I live in Australia where it’s temperate most of the year, to get the most out of this outfit it needs to be light and breathable so I can wear it even on warmer days. I bought this soft blazer from Topshop and it’s just perfection! Of course if you’re from cooler climates you can choose a more structured or even thicker blazer for a more chic/slick look.

 

Straight leg jeans

Although I love skinny jeans, the straightleg/mum jeans trend has got me hook, line and sinker! I esepcially love the high waisted trend because it complements short frames so well! Sometimes you can go a bit crazy with all the different denim trends right now, but if you want a basic & versatile outfit, it’s best just changing the silhoutte and pick a clean pair of jeans from that line. Avoid too many tassles or rips because that will date the jeans instead of keeping a basic staple.

New Chloe Faye handbag from Cultstatus.com and how you can save too!

Meet the bag that nearly got away – the Chloe Faye Medium in Plum Purple!

So if you watched my youtube channel you guys would know the LONG story about how I finally came to acquire this gorgeous bag.

If you haven’t, long story short it was an absolute mission to find this bag in this colour! I’ll try and break it down. Basically I had the opportunity to own this bag early last year in the black or the burgundy. I was nervous about having my first coloured bag so I opted for the black. Unfortunately with all it’s little nuances, and the fact that the black didn’t really captivate me, I returned the item. However I couldn’t stop drooling over it every time I saw it on instagram. Not to mention I always found myself stalking it online!

It wasn’t until I stumbled upon Sinead Crowe’s blog that I saw how amazing this colour truly was. And instantly, I knew I needed to have it! When I finally decided I wanted it, it dawned on me that it was completely sold out everywhere! It was just no where to be found! That is until I remembered Cultstatus – and there it was. The beautiful plum purple colour that I was obsessing over! As I mentioned in the video, although there are clear negatives about this bag including the fact that it’s overplayed and very fussy and at times not very practical, this colour had me SWOONING and now I’m positively obsessed!

I seriously have to thank cultstatus.com.au for helping me finally have this in my collection! They have also kindly given my readers and subscribers a discount code off their website!

How to wear the leather skirt and look effortless

How to wear the leather skirt and look effortless

Ah, the leather skirt.

Please tell you own a leather skirt! It’s such a staple in my wardrobe collection and I’m always on the look out for that one perfect skirt. Being only 152cm it’s always a struggle to find good fitting bottoms, and the leather midi skirt is no exception. I have this one particular pair from ASOS and I absolutely love bringing it out every spring/autumn. Its a little bit to long so believe it or not I have actually rolled it at the top! But it has everything else in a skirt I love – leather, split front, and pencil style.

My favourite way to style this is really casually for that Parisian-chic look. This ensemble of sweatshirt + leather skirt is a classic combination for me and one that I reach for time and time again when I want to wear my leather skirt but don’t know how to style it. If you haven’t tried it yet, DO IT. You may never want to take it off!

You can jazz up the outfits by wearing some bling-bling earrings like I have, and even wear some stiletto pumps & structured blazer to make appropriate for a night out/dinner. Alternatively wear white converse/hoodie to make it even more casual for an errand day. It’s a great base to start building on. What do you guys think?

City Camo

As I’ve mentioned time and time again, I’ll miss Adelaide’s picturesque city sidewalks. This month has been so busy, and I apologise for that! If you watched my recent Q&A, you may know that I’ve been busy prepping for an exam. Thankfully that’s all done, but now moving onto the next job – and that’s moving out.

I’ll be moving to Brisbane start of next month, so it’s going to be another busy month unfortunately. I also want to start my blog sale soon, so stay tuned for that. If I’m organised enough, I hope to have it up by tommorow/day after. So stay tuned everyone!

Meanwhile, here are some photos from when the weather was a little cooler, featuring one of my favourite bags – the ever so cute Alma BB in Damier ebene. Isn’t she the cutest! I tend to wear her more during spring/summer for some reason, and I love how she looks with neutral tones.

My blog posts are all over the place lately, and I’m so sorry about that. I’m trying to stick to my schedule of posting every Monday + Friday, but thats clearly gone out the window. Partly to blame is the fact that I’m currently trying to study for an upcoming exam, and whilst I have a few days of study leave I’m trying to cram up to 10 lectures a day… not really possible.

So I have been meaning to post this look for weekssss now,  and yes, thats exactly how far advanced I am with photos, and if you follow me on instagram you would have already seen sneak previews of this look.

I love how this look/shoot turned out, and I honestly had to painstakingly go through literally hundreds of photos! I’ve tried to narrow it as much as  I can, but forgive me if it’s still an overwhelming amount of photos of me! ahaha.

In this look I’m wearing one of my favourite layering pieces of all time – my shaggy/teddy/rug cream gillet or vest. I purchased this little number from H&M many moons ago, and I love layering it over pants, over skirts, dresses – and I ever layer it over a cardigan to turn it into a coat! In this outfit I’ve chosen to my (one of my many) pair of culottes from topshop, and to keep things simple have just worn a plain white shirt underneath. My reflective sunglasses from cotton on give this outfit a nice pop of interest and complements the gold accent from my LV bag nicely. Of course since everything was pretty neutral, I chose an LV monogram print bag as it would pop really nicely!

And on that note, I thought I would include a little review here about the Pochette Metis as some of my viewers were curious as to why I did not include it as part of my recommended 1st designer handbag.

The Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis

So I dont want to ramble on too much about this bag – if you want a separate review video on wear & tear and thoughts let me know – but as I’ve said some people where curious why I did not feature this on my recent video. The reason being folks is when I think about my first designer handbag (or atleast in my case), I think about a forever bag – in style, in function, in durability and in price point. I want it to be a all-rounder. Now I did not chose to include the Pochette Metis mainly because of all of the problems associated with this bag in the early stages, and also the trendy nature of the bag. I don’t see it as a classic piece just yet, and there have been enough problems brought up about this bag that I refrain from recommending it as a first designer bag. That isn’t to say that every PM has inherent construction problems, because if you look after your bag well, it shouldn’t! But if I had this bag as my first item and I ran into glazing problems or cracking problems right off the bat – I would just not be happy at all!

Now that isn’t to say I wouldn’t recommend this bag at all – because I do! Its a beautiful bag that offers a lot of functionality and versatility, and it’s easily one of my favourite bags from Louis Vuitton. But for reasons I mentioned above, I refrained from recommending it as a first designer piece – and I stress on the word first – because to me, that first bag shoulde the be-all and end-all… and I just don’t feel like this bag is quite there!
