HAT.HAIR.

HATS THIS WINTER
Yes, I have been absent from this blog for a few weeks now, I apologise - working in PR I have had a few crazy weeks and finally things have started to settle down (just) - but alas, I have found some time and am back on track. Thankfully, I am fully on board with two Lack of Color hats and one Witchery black wide brim hat so that I am ready for this Winter to hit.
I have said this before, but what an easy way to save your style when you wake up in the morning, running late and have no time to do your hair - add a hat.
Think your jeans and white shirt don't look sharp enough? - add a hat.
Going to a festival and don't want to wear fluoro tops and reflective sunglasses? - add a hat!
See - there are so many options for hats and this Winter, a luxurious hat is all you need.
 
If anyone can now point me in the direction of an oversize floor skimming camel colour or navy coat, I would be eternally grateful.
 
Get the look - shop a range of hats at Lack of Color here.

HOLY.ROLLER.

MAURIE AND EVE
What perfect balance.
I am mixed with school girl memories (cue the shirt, pencil skirt and jumper combo), flirty romance with that watercolour print and then 80's influence with that lighter than Levi denim that just screams high ponies, converse and band t-shirts.
The sheer panels worked into some of the skirts and tops make for the ultimate combination - it's that little bit cheeky that makes this collection so true to Maurie and Eve.
On my hit list? The 'Stylin Skirt' in grey marle and those incredible denim drop crotch pants. Hallelujah to the subtle tones, messy hair and injection of Navy... I may have finally had my day with black... maybe...

SKIRTING.AROUND.THE.ISSUE.

SKIRTS.
Last year really was a turning point for me - I think I wore jeans on more than three occasions (a big deal for me), experimented in colours other than black, navy and white, I ventured into heels that were tiny in comparison to my usual wedges and actually found myself with some waisted outfits (despite always wearing oversized clothing). 
I have hit new heights - skirts are my latest obsession.
Floor skimming, midi skirts, denim skirts, pencil skirts - I don't even care at the moment. I just want more skirts! I've come to realise that skirts are indeed flattering for every shape. It's all a matter of finding a style that suits you - while the pencil skirt doesn't work for me with tight fitting tops, I am going to layer mine up with oversized jumpers to balance out my proportions. Similarly, team a black mini skirt with a classic and conservative white shirt and voila! You'll turn that mini skirt from looking a little too risqué to something perfectly office worthy.  
It really is an exciting time I tell you.
 
Turn to Bassike, Helmut Lang, Sass and Bide and Zara for the basics.

PRE.FALL.2014.

ELLERY
Starting off the year with a bang - Kym Ellery does it again with this collection of masculine silhouettes and touches of girly pinks and eggplant purples.
The way she is able to achieve everything so seamlessly in proportion, with the full volume coats, full midi skirts and structured arms makes for the perfect pairing.
The addition of the dainty Alexander Wang inspired 'fluff' heels adds yet another surprising element to the look book.
Must buy item for Winter 2014: The oversized cocoon shaped coat.

STYLE.PROFILE.

LINDY KLIM
Style to a 'T' - I can't get enough of Lindy Klim - married to Michael Klim (my all time favourite swimmer when I was little) and mother to three gorgeous children Stella, Rocco and Frankie).
With the likes of Acne, Bassike, Ellery and We Are Handsome raiding her wardrobe, there is no questioning that Lindy knows how to style herself to be worthy of any red carpet.
Lindy has a very laidback, clean and crisp look - mixing masculine cuts with feminine accessories and playing with pops of colour.
Her signature piece that you should invest in? The blazer. A must for throwing on over jeans, shorts, shirts and dresses. 
Follow Lindy on Instagram for all her latest updates (you may decide that you spontaneously want to move to Bali and need to invest in hundreds of one piece bathing suits) @lindyklim
