Day 98: The law of simplicity

Simplicity can be the key when it comes to looking professional. I like wearing blacks, greys and whites and keeping it interesting by mixing different textures like satins and matte fabrics with sparkly beaded necklaces. I also love fitted skirts and shirts that accent your body.

Day 97: Tea party

Today I went off to church followed by tea at the Melville Rose gardens.. This is one of my favourite places in Perth and there were so many flowers in bloom it felt like we were in an English garden. I thought it would be fitting to wear lots of pearls, a silk dress with a large ruffled flower centre and flower shoes to match! 3 days left of the op-shop recycled clothing challenge!

Day 96: Alice in Wonderland

This dress reminds me of an outfit that Alice in Wonderland would wear if she wanted to go out and have cocktails. I think it is so pretty, with delicate fabric, shiny buttons and a navy sash… Oh I am so loving op-shopping.. and to think it was only $5!

Day 95: Ahoy sailor!

I don’t know why but I keep wearing/buying navy clothes lately. Maybe it is all this hot sun and dreaming of being out on the ocean. Speaking of navy clothes, I can’t wait to show you this awesome printed navy kaftan I picked up from the op-shop today- watch this space!

Day 94: Green with envy

I love the colour green, it is my all time favourite colour. With all this hot weather, I opted for wearing a second hand emerald coloured loose slouchy top with tweed shorts and this necklace which is a long strand of gemstones.

Day 93: Like attracts like

Do opposites really attract? Today I have paired a navy top with navy high waisted shorts which gives the impression of a navy playsuit when these similar colours are paired together.

Day 92: First lady fashion style

This outfit is a lot of classics- crisp lines, black and white and a row of pearls. It reminds me of the style of women in politics and first ladies. Today I am wearing a second hand dress teamed with a second hand blouse. Perfect outfit for a dessert night at the lovely French restaurant, Chez Pierre.
