So yes, this is a rather abstract print isn’t it?  If you wanna tell me what you think it is, go for it.  It kind of reminds me of wrapped lollies, which isn’t really a bad thing now is it?

This dress was about $15 from Cotton On – a good shop btw, I bought my first fav blouse from there.  I will never forget it (still have it).  This is an outfit I’ve worn a couple of times.  I waver between liking it and not… only because sometimes I feel that the dress is a tad short for me.  Only sometimes though.  How’s that for the classic indecisive female, huh?  It’s not really too short generally (esp. when worn with thick leggings) but occasionally I’m conscious of the long gangly appendages that I possess. 😉  Haha, anyway, gotta be happy with what you have, right?  And appendages are not what define you… thankfully.

I’m starting to realize even more that I have a thing for blue.  Generally it’s one of my best colours to wear.  Do you have one colour that works really well for you?  I think it’s important to know what that is, because it’s an easy fall-back when one isn’t feeling too inspired.  I like to mix textures – this outfit exhibits it well.  Although, I tend to be a bit less adventurous in regards to mixing prints, textures is a different story.  The smooth blue of the blazer mixed with the lace scarf and printed dress is a good combination.  And let me just say that these ankle boots are a new favourite of mine. 🙂

I was trying to do something with my hair… ‘trying’ being the operative word. 😉  Didn’t work, but hey… I um don’t have a comeback.

Ooh ooh!  Exciting news!  I only have three weeks left of school – yr. 13 – and then I’m finished… FOREVER!!!  Who wouldn’t feel ecstatic?!  I’ve applied for Bible College next year… and then… who but God knows what the future may hold.  I look forward to it with absolute excitement and anticipation. 😀

Bless you all as you journey through life,

I was so, so excited to shoot the photos for this outfit, and also to see how they turned out.  I am in LOVE with them!  And I know that could sound terribly vain, girly, conceited and all of that other stuff… however, I am particularly in love with the location.  I look forward to the blossoming of these cascading purple flowers each year with great anticipation and hope to catch some lovely pics of them.  This year, we managed to take many photos, and I even did a bit of nature photography myself, which I might include in a separate post if you are interested.

Ok, enough drooling over those amazing, lovely, beautiful, gorgeous… um, yes right, ok.  This outfit is based around a chiffon, floral dress that I bought from a thrift store a while ago – $7!  For a while I was rather uninspired about styling this outfit, but with the help of Lydia, we managed to yet agian use our layering technique along with my awesome navy blazer to create this stylish and rather formal outfit.  We styled it long ago here… yes, I think it looks much better like this 😉

We have talked about that base black dress many times.  It truly is an LBD, and we have used it often to add a bit of length to an otherwise short tunic or dress.  Perfect, and I highly recommend the purchase of one of these.  An LBD can be anything from a navy, black or brown colour with sleeves or no sleeves.  It basically equals a dress with great versatility and value that can work as a staple piece of clothing to be used over and over again.

I was about to point you to some other outfits which used either the black dress or navy blazer, but I think it’ll make good material for a remix post, so… nevermind 😉

I like the look of the small print with the solid navy colour in this outfit.  And of course the buttons on the blazer really make it 😉

Righty ho, now, GO!  …to have a look at the photos of course 😀

Beautiful location, beautiful clothes…. aaah, yes, summer do come soon please!

Bless you all over the weekend, may you all enjoy revelling in God’s awesome creation!

Part 2!

It’s been a while, but don’t worry, I’m on a role again.  This dress is definitely a summer dress as you can see from the bright colours and print, however, by layering over a bright long sleeve and long leggings, I’ve again transformed this summer dress into a winter dress.  One awesome plus about transforming your summer dress into winter wear, is the bright colour that you’ll be sporting all day long.  Instead of black, grey, or beige, you’ll be a pop of colour on a dismal day.  And believe me, that’s a pretty sight!  It’ll brighten and lighten your mood too.

Oh yes, in this outfit, I used a scarf to add a bit of warmth and style.  I’ve been living in scarves all throughout winter – not quite literally, but just about every outfit I wear sports a scarf.  A guy I know was trying to sum up my style and said, “Oh yeah, you always wear scarves.”  Which is true of the winter but not of summer.  But that revelation is rather sad, as I don’t own a great variety of scarves… Lydia does, but not me.

Of course, where would I be without my old faithful – my awesome navy blazer from Ezibuy!  Seriously girls, I’ve been wearing this a lot, and it’s been perfect for many of outfits.  Navy was a great colour to choose, as it’s not the usual black that I often wear… yet it’s still a rather neutral/universal colour and matches with many of my clothes.  If you can find a great staple piece of clothing like this, you’ll be right. 🙂

Enjoy and I hope that these last two post have been helpful and given you some new ideas for economic and stylish dressing.

Thanks Rhesa for taking and editing these photos!  The day that we took these was dismal and grey, so our previous ideas of outside photography went out the window.  Rhesa proved to be the creative one in finding inside locations.  There was a short dry spot in which we took these photos (above)… but it started spitting, so I ended that outside shoot by throwing the petals of my poor rose into the air.  (Just cause I thought you’d all want to know that) 😉

Blessings, have an awesome week!
