And finally, a new blouse!  Navy with heart prints 😀  Love those love-hearts.

I plan to document my year by snapping some little pics here and there and then sharing them with you all!

Uni starts tomorrow and I feel nervous, excited, un-composed, and fully prepared yet unprepared for what lies ahead.  Here’s to the future!

P.S.  A bit of tune talk… a couple of favourite songs:  “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, and I did like “Say Something”… until the radio totally overplayed it… 😐

The second of my favourite shops to shop is Glassons.  As one of the more popular clothing stores, Glassons is always up with the fashion trends and has frequent discounts.  The quality of their clothes is not as high as Ezibuy, but definitely satisfying.  They should last you for several years, depending on how well you keep your clothes.   I particularly like their selection of cardigans and blouses.  One of my favourite tie-up blouses has come from there.  In love!  They sport bright colours and their prices aren’t that unreasonable for the clothes that they sell.  The only two problems that I have with Glassons are these.  Firstly, every girl and her mother wears their clothes, so I wouldn’t advise buying a whole outfit from that shop.  Instead, just a few pieces that you can mix and match with other items of clothing from places like JeansWest or Jay Jays (two other shops that I quite like).  The second problem that I have with them is in regards to their dresses.  They always seem to be at an awkward in between length where you kinda have to wear leggings to keep them modest but know that they really weren’t made to wear with leggings (also applies to some of their skirts).  Just a tad too short for me I’m afraid, which is a real pity as I do like some of the dresses that they sell.  Apart from that, I do really like the clothes that they offer and would reccomend them to anybody.

I have never bought online from Glassons, as we have a store just fifteen minutes away from us.  They have shops in just about, if not all, the malls across the country and are generally very well stocked in sizes and colours.

Below are just a few of their clothes that I wouldn’t mind acquiring 🙂

lace singlet

floral dress

(Still not quite sure of the short at the front long at the back thing… what do you think?)

pink blouse

I’m still keeping my eyes out for a soft denim blouse and a nice white one.  Anyway, go check out Glasson’s website.  I reccomend their clothes and love how they add a pop of bright colour to any outfit. 🙂

I hope you’ve been enjoying these reviews on my favourite clothing stores and as always I’d love to hear your comments 🙂

Bless you over these Christmas and summer holidays!

P.S.  Another fashion photo shoot coming your way very soon!

Hi Everyone,

This is our last outfit in the Welcome Summer fashion photo shoot, which is just as well, cause I was starting to get a little embarrassed everytime I posted with the title Welcome Summer. It’s far from it here. I still defy winter and have not worn a long sleeve yet, however, saying that, I have worn more than a cardigan over my t-shirts.

This outfit is very summery indeed. The light colours, combined with the light lace fabric and cute, knee-length skirt, spell summer like nothing else does… except summer of course.

The lime yellow colour is rather interesting, not quite the bold yellow or stunning lime green, lime yellow gives you the best of both worlds with lemmons and limes. I mean, we couldn’t be happy without either of them right?

The skirt plus blouse with cardy look, is the classic going out and about outfit. I wear it all the time, and many similar looks have been featured here on this blog as I’m sure you’re aware. Saying all that however, this is an easy type of outfit to put together, with different results every time. It looks very feminine and by tucking and belting you’ll feel stylish as well. I think we all have our, “I can’t be bothered to work out something complicated, yet I do want to dress nicely,” days.  So remember this equition for feminine, stylish dressing.

Skirt + blouse + cardigan = perfect out and about wear

Follow this if you’re having a lazy day and you’ll be right.  However, it’s your choice what to wear, and you’ll capture your own unique style as you pair together your favourite skirts and blouses.  Have a look here, here, here, and even here for examples!  You get the idea, with variety nothing will look the same!

Enjoy the photos and as always, we love to hear your feedback.  Oh, and my skirt is almost finished, I dare say you’ll see it soon enough. 🙂

See you soon with a craft post!

We will now return from our brief interlude – the review on Modest Sea – and come back to, the White Shorts Series.

This second outfit has a definite summer feel, which is fitting, as the weather over here in New Zealand is improving!  I believe I feel another fashion photo shoot coming along, in which Lydia will be organising the outfits.  Wasn’t it great last time?!

You can also wear other blouses with these shorts, I have two button up blouses with floral patterns that look lovely with these shorts.  Very feminine, but still practical.  I really like the look of these two colours together.  There’s a place for lovely, soft pastels , but bright, bold, opposite colours look stunning together and really catch your eye.  Not to mention, that this outfit reminds me of a lovely summer sky, the bright blue expanse dotted with fluffy, white clouds.

Have a look at the photos below.  I hope you’re enjoying this series, my basic aim is to show you how you can achieve different looks by changing just one part of the outfit.  Experiment yourself, as I’m sure this principle can apply to lots of other items in your wardrobe.

Enjoy your summer and the upcoming lovely weather!

Esther
