Doesn’t every girl long for that throw on dress? A dress that can just simply be worn and yet still look like you’ve made the effort? That piece that doesn’t need to be styled because it’s style in itself – the ‘no-brainer’.

This phenomenal frock from Ecléct is all that you’d want from THAT dress. As we all know (or we should by now!) statement sleeves are everything right now… EVERYTHING. Flare, cuff, bell, split – you name it! If it’s got a sleeve that makes a statement, it’ll be in my wardrobe. These sleeves start with a tie at the forearm and create a long flare down the wrist to make that statement. Tied high at the neck and around the waist to create the perfect silhouette and take this dress from an Autumn frock to a dress with a difference.

The luxurious fabric and the to-die-for wine palette that creates this piece makes it a must have for seasons to come! This one might be unique but it’s got those classic touches that will make it a staple in your wardrobe for seasons to come!

Falling Into Autumn

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 preset

Summer is over. Summer is over?! ALREADY??

It never gets easier coming to the realization that the best season has, yet again, come to an end (*cries inside*). There is one thing that always gets me through when Summer fades away.. Autumn fashion.

I’m a summer girl at heart but Autumn/Winter fashion is definitely my favourite! It’s a season you can really have fun with when it comes to styling. Layers, textures, fabrics – the opportunities are endless!

One of my go-to looks for the in-between weather is teaming a mini skirt with a long sleeve top. As well as creating different lengths to your outfit, it’s a great way to style a new Autumn piece like a statement blouse while still showing off the pins! You can finish off the look with the ultimate tran-seasonal shoe – the mule, or add an ankle boot to really get that Winter vibe going.

Experiment with textures – it’s the best part about Fall fashion! Knits, wools, silks and leathers, the list goes on. Try to team contrasting fabrics together to really elevate your look and create something new.

Happy new season shopping ladies 😉

Is there anything better in the warm weather than a shirt dress?? It’s easy, comfy, cool and effortlessly stylish. And I mean effortless – throw it on, add sandals, say no more! There’s nothing worse than trying to style an outfit when it’s hot and you want comfort… but you also want style!

This dress by Imonni has a long, curved hem, side splits for movement and a tie-up belt to cinch in the waist. This dress is simply perfect for every figure. The cuffed sleeves slim the arms and shoulders and the buttons down the front elongate the figure – great for shorties like me!

I’m a big fan of neutrals so the black and white geometric combination was perfect for my wardrobe! Take a different angle on the shirt dress and wear it as a vest. Leave it un-buttoned but still tied up, teamed with jeans, a singlet, heels and a hat and you have a totally different look! (Or even layer it with a long sleeve underneath for the cooler months.)

Tip: Look out for curved hems on dresses to elongate your figure. Avoid even hems if you’re short as it can often cut you off and make you look shorter.

That’s a Wrap!

IMGP8436_Fotor IMGP8416_Fotor IMGP8404 IMGP8493 IMGP8475 IMGP8477My obsession for unique cuts continues with the gorgeous wrap top from Azalia Boutique! This stunning piece crosses over at the front with a high collar and a floor length back.

Although it is a statement, it’s wear-ability is no question! Work it in with your wardrobe staples to add your own style. Contrast with bold white bottoms or add a pop of colour with a high waisted skirt or flared pants! If black’s not your colour, this beauty also comes in white (for those more daring!).

One of the best things about boutique shopping is that whatever is in this week is gone next week. Knowing that your piece is one of a kind and a style like no other is what makes what you pick so special! Azalia Boutique always carry a huge range of unique pieces so you’ll never walk away empty handed. If the wrap top is what you’re looking for be super quick to get your hands on one before they sell out!

Cozy Coat

The ultimate winter essential has to be a trench coat. Effortless style and oh so warm! I chose a woolen, charcoal, knee length coat to keep me cozy through the cooler months. Charcoal is a great tone to break up those winter blacks and to add another element to your outfit. A quirky camel colour works with those winter tones too. Not only does it bring colour to a cool outfit but it’s the perfect transition from freezing Winter to breezy Spring.

What’s a trench’s best friend? A felt hat, of course! Complete your Winter look with a hat that is the character of your effortless outfit. Proving that trench’s will take you from rain to shine, team it with a pair of flats as an alternative to your Winter boots. The trench is the staple piece that is worth investing in!
