Here is another classic summer’s outfit.  I say classic because I have yet again used one of my favourite outfit mixes.  A skirt and top belted together with a shrug thrown over the top and a lace scarf wrapped around my neck (more to add style than to protect against the cold).  Classic but still chic.  I’ve used some very interesting colour combinations in this outfit.  All I did was look at the skirt, then pick out some pieces of clothing that matched the colours.  It turned into a beige and mulberry mix.  Good tip there.  If you’re uninspired in regards to your outfit colours, then pick some out of the skirt or top etc.

I went to see Les Miserables today.  It was fantastic!  I love singing and watching movies that focus around songs, so consequently I loved this movie!  I’m listening to the soundtrack right now actually 😉  I loved how they filmed and recorded all on the songs on set.  It made it that much better and I loved the voices of all the actors and actresses.  Go watch it!  I highly reccomend it 🙂

Do enjoy these photos and I hope that it inspires you to branch out a bit in your style.  I hope that this next week is a lovely one for you.  I’m making the most of the summer holidays by going ice skating and visiting the beach.  Good times. 🙂

I’ve really been enjoying singing Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan.  It’s a beautiful love song and I just thought I would share that with you 🙂

God bless you all.  What a lovely week it has been 🙂

A summer outfit, 1

If you remember last year in the summer, I did a whole series on these white shorts.  They have come in handy many times, and here is yet another outfit I have put together using them.  This is the tie-up blouse that I have been talking about recently.  Very cute.  I love it, you don’t have to, but I do.

This is a very simple outfit, but I’ve played upon the bold colour with white trend that’s been ever present in 2012.  Oh, and before it flies right on by, a Happy New Year to you all!  May it be an awesome one filled with great surprises and joy.  I’m very excited to see where God takes me, and all of you!

I have started to quite like the idea of wearing high-heeled shoes with trousers and shorts.  It adds a bit of class to a casual outfit and gives me an excuse to wear heels just those extra times.  I’m not very aware of what’s in store for this year fashion-wise, but I’ll do a bit of research and get back to you on that one.

I’m not really one to follow the trends that closely, but I like to add them in with my own style.  A bit here and there if you know what I mean.  Keeps you trendy while still standing out of the crowd.  I always am and will be an advocate of personal and unique style as I believe that it shows a bit on the outside of who you are on the inside.

Enjoy the photos and lovely weather 🙂  The Queen Anne’s Lace is out and looks gorgeous!  Closest thing to snow that we get here…

I’ve really been into wearing ‘arm candy’ recently.  This trend refers to wearing several bracelets on the same wrist.  I have a couple of bangles that look lovely with a butterfly bracelet and a charm bracelet that I own.  It looks particularly nice with a simple outfit such as this one.

Enjoy your summer holidays Kiwis and your winter wonderland, those of you who enjoyed a white Christmas!
