Hey there folks!

Alrighty ho, so this is the last outfit, OH NO!  But not to worry people, on Sunday, Rhesa is going to photograph another six outfits, and personally, I reckon that these outfits are some of my favourite so far.  I’m just terribly disappointed, because two of my favourite outfits consist of Lydia’s clothes.  She has awesome clothes.

Ok, so you folks may be very happy that this time, Lydia (the mysterious stylist behind these posts) is back to styling for us.  She once did make an appearance here in summer.

Alrighty, back to this outfit.  That vintage camera sure does make me feel like a business gal going off to do some photography for the afternoon.  When I picture a business outfit, sometimes the rather boring combination of black and white comes to mind.  But it doesn’t have to be like that!  It would be awesome if the image of a trendy chick wearing a plain blouse tucked into a simple smart skirt covered with a very business-like yet fashionable blazer came to mind instead.  You don’t have to wear black and white to give off the proffessional business look, in fact colour, even if neutral, looks a whole lot better!  Unfortunately, where I live, everyone wears black in winter, no wonder winter can be so depressing.  Wear a bit of colour and brighten up your cold winters afternoon!

The use of some vintage accessories adds a more old-fashioned feel to this otherwise modern outfit.

Enjoy these photos, and the use of that awesome vintage camera.

Oh, and did you notice my retro striped nail polish!  Just havin’ a bit o’ fun. 😉

Enjoy your weekend!


P.S.  Awesome upcoming alert people!  We’ll be bringing you a couple of male fashion posts.  That’s right, my brother Matthew (who I have mentioned a few times) will be modeling some trendy and up-to-date fashion for guys.  The aim, to give you some ideas in order to encourage your brothers and/0r boyfriends or even husbands to dress up a bit more and look classy.  You’ll thank me, trust me 🙂

Hello friends! I’m Lindsey, comin at ya from Ruby Girl, where I post a few outfits a week and share style tips and tricks, insights on faith, and some lighthearted banter on the in’s & out’s of life. My style aesthetic is ladylike glam, a happy hybrid of feminine romance and urban edge. Goodness there are so many things I love about style blogging, but one of my absolute favorites is getting to know so many amazing women, beautiful inside & out, who I would never have met before! Esther was so kind to reach out and invite me to share a few thoughts on style with you. Thought I’d share with you how I keep things modern but modest over at Ruby Girl, by taking you on a little tour of my wardrobe. Here are some of my summer staples, from head to toe!

I’ve been crazy about headbands since I was like 8, it’s one of those timeless accessories. This fun printed hair wrap is super easy to throw on and makes for a beachy casual look.
I’m all about color blocking, and especially when it comes to pastels. We are talkin over-the-TOP dreamy and feminine! This blush blazer pairs well with so many hues!
I cannot get over how darn comfortable long dresses are, just crazy flowy and light! I’m definitely a proponent of every girl finding her perfect maxi, this one has a fun tribal print that adds a bit of flare.
Summer would not be the same without a Go-To Skirt, you know, that one you can throw on a white tee and gladiators with and you feel like a million bucks? I love the scalloped finish on this one!
You gotta throw a little pow, a little 1-2 punch in there somewhere, nothing like neon heels to add that pizzazz!

So glad to have “met” you! I’d love to connect more, here are a few ways to keep up with Ruby Girl:Blog | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram

Note from Esther:  Thanks so much Lindsey for doing a superb job on your guest post here at Creative Touch.  I really appreciate it.  Just a note, it’s summer over there in America, so for all my NZ readers, keep this post in mind for our summer to come!
