This outfit is again absolute eye candy for me!  The light mint and white colours are just divine, simply divine!  I love the look of lace and pastels mixed, and have therefore done that for this outfit.   The lovely ruffled top, shell necklace and beaded bracelets are all that lovely mint colour.  The lace scarf, knitted cardigan (which also have shell buttons by the by) and the skirt are all white.  I love the look of ivory and cream with vintage colours as you well know, however due to my skin tone and eye and hair colour, I look far better in clear colours such as white, or even mint.  I do try to make other colours work, but mostly I have to face the brutal truth. 😉  Warm colours do not altogether suit me.

I absolutely love the look of these periwinkle flowers with the outfit.  In fact, wearing that colour with mint would look lovely too!  You can’t really see the shoes that I’m wearing, but they are the same as in the last post – silver sandals.

Yellow would also look lovely with these colours, makes me think of the sky – yellow sun, blue sky, white clouds!  Aaah, bring on the summer!

Rhesa had a brilliant idea in regards to a photo setting.  The two photos of me sitting and lying in the buttercup filled strip of foliage reminded both of us of  the cover of a fashion mag. 😉  The lighting was perfect.  Anyway, take a look and see what you think 🙂  If you have any questions about colouring or dressing, comment and I’ll reply (after talking to my fashion pro sis of mine of course).

I wore a simpler version of this outfit a couple of years ago actually – minus the scarf and bracelets.  Lydia helped me style that one long ago…

Bless you all today and over this next week!

The next outfit will be coming soon… if you have any requests in regards to some posts, I’d be happy to seriously consider some ideas.  We’ll have an accessory post coming up soon.  We finally took some photos of our shoes and scarves which I’m sure that you’ll love looking at soon!  Another idea, having a remix post.  I’ve seen quite a few bloggers do this.  You dig up a few past photos that have been on the blog of you wearing the same item of clothing.  Also a bits and pieces post could be fun.  Rather like instagram.  I rather enjoy photography also, so you might see a bit of it up here.  Could be interesting 🙂

Let me know what you think!

Yes I am. Cause I know they’ll come, and soon. The day that we did this fashion photo shoot was beautifully sunny and I didn’t feel cold standing in this when being photographed, as opposed to most days in the winter when I stand freezing, trying to look relaxed and unconcerned.  However, the truth is that I soon rush back into the house or chuck my dressing gown over me, thus effectively ruining my previously stylish look 😉

Ok, about this outfit.  This beautiful, floral, halter-neck dress is from the Philippines, and when paired with a nice white or coloured shrug to hide the lack of sleeves, it looks fabulous! I love it, the epitomy of summer for me. Oh yes, and this cool floppy, beach hat!  Makes me think of those sunny days goin’ to the beach.  Yeah!  The sun, the waves, the seagulls souring overhead, picnic basket in hand, swimming, good friends with good conversation.  God’s creation never ceases to amaze me, and in all seasons I see something which makes me marvel afresh at God’s creativity.  It inspires me!

I’m also wearing some awesome silver sandals to go with this summery look!  Enjoy, and please do let me know what your favourite part of summer is.  I’m really looking forward to painting my nails with bright colours!  Let’s get into the mood early peeps. 🙂

I’m really excited to reveal these next outfits to you over the course of a few weeks.  They are so cute and summery.  Rhesa’s new camera is a dream, let me tell you!  And our outdoor settings are beautiful.  Pink and purple, what can go wrong?!

Blessings on you all today!

Do you see this people??!  This whole outfit was practically only $15 if you substitute the shoes for a pair of jandals or just go barefoot on the beach.  Give or take a few dollars…   See what you can do with clothes cheaply?  I hope this inspires you 🙂

Outfit 4 will be the last of the White Shorts Series, however, I have some exciting news! On Sunday, Lydia, Rhesa and I had a fashion photo shoot, called, Welcome Summer. In it, we have some lovely bright outfits, smart business wear, and some vintage shots. I hope you’re looking forward to it, I sure am! We’ll give you some neat tips and inspire you in your personal fashion.

This is another outfit using the white shorts and it gives a completely different look again. The scarf is fashionable while providing that extra warmth you’ll need in this rather bizarre New Zealand summer. The blouse reminds me of the colour sea blue. I guess I was reminded of the sea because our family will be going on a two week holiday by the sea at the end of this week! I can’t wait!

I’ll be posting a couple more posts before then hopefully, just to give you something to look at while we’re gone as I don’t think I’ll be posting over that period of time.

Enjoy!

Tune in tomorrow, we’ll be starting the Welcome Summer fashion posts.

What I wore:

  • Sea blue blouse – Valley Girl $15?
  • Butterfly scarf – Jeans West $25.99
  • White shorts – Ezibuy $25
  • Silver sandals – gifted
  • White cross necklace – handmade by me! (ok, there was a tutorial…)

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!  Mine was great and I am still enjoying the holidays.  It’s summer here now, and although we’ve been having unseasonably wet weather, or perhaps it’s not that unseasonable, it is now becoming fine once more.

I am starting up a series!  This series is on my famous white shorts!  I have mentioned them rather a lot lately and I’ve said how I have enjoyed the look and feel of summer that it has brought.  There will be four posts in this series and most will feature my lovely knit white cardigan as well which I purchased in 2010!  It has served me well, and in fact, I am only just starting to get more wear out of it.

This outfit goes with the nautical summer theme that I have already mentioned.  I am wearing a striped singlet with a silver, woven, wrap it bracelet/necklace/headband.  As you can see, they have many uses and fit perfectly into the theme.  I’m wearing my hair in a simple pigtail with pearl drop earrings.

Enjoy the photos and I hope you feel inspired by this summer outfit.  As you will see in the next few days, you can create quite a few different outfits using simple, staple pieces from your wardrobe.

Enjoy your holidays and watch out for some more posts.

Blessings,

Esther
