Why #everydaystyle?

Helloooo hump day!

Today I thought I’d talk about the Instagram hashtag I’ve come to love.

#everydaystyle is the brainchild of super blogger Nikki Parkinson – Styling You , a way of connecting with other like minded ladies who share their daily outfits.

  • 260 km of driving, give or take
  • Countless hours spent taking and editing over 600 photo’s (perfectionist much!)
  • Kid wrangling and bribing…
  • Convincing hubby he absolutely should appear in a blog post (and suffer a barrage of teasing from male friends and admiration of female friends!)

Week Four – Family Style

Hello fashionista’s!

Today I’m bringing you great affordable family fashion. I have to say it was nice to be on the other side of the camera for a change snapping pic’s of the kids!

My not so little kids are actually quite easy to please in the clothing department. Miss 14 shares my love of vintage / op-shopped clothes and doesn’t tend to lean toward labels…. yet! And Mr 11 is the most relaxed kid when it comes to clothes and is still quite happy for me to put outfits together for him.

Week One – Warm Up For Winter

Hello again lovely people!

Let me ask… do you like winter?

I do!

In fact I absolutely love it,  and one of my most favorite items of clothing for winter is a snugly cardigan. There is nothing better than curling up on the couch in an over sized knit drinking a cup of tea, or is that just me?

For this post I’m sharing two easy looks you can achieve with one cardigan and showing you that a cardigan can be dressed up or down.

Today I’m featuring a gorgeous long line cardigan from Crossroads. I love the pastel pink colour and long length. I also love that it has pockets!

I’ve opted for a neutral colour palette for the dressed up look using a lovely pair of nude heels from Spendless Shoes , jewellery from Colette and bag from Best and Less. The sleeveless knit dress I am wearing comes from Cotton On. I’m a little out of my comfort zone in this dress as it’s quite fitted but I’m loving it with the long cardi and its super comfy!

 { Cotton On Kellie Muscle Midi – Dress $19.95 / Crossroads Cardigan $44.95 / Spendless Shoes Nude Heels $49.95 / Colette Necklace and Cuff $12.95 each / Best & Less Handbag $25.00 }

Here is a closer look at the beautiful jewellery and nude heels…

For look number two I’m thinking of those rainy days curled up on the couch with a cuppa. If you’ve been following my style then you would know how much I love a slogan tee and the one I’m wearing from Supre ticks all the boxes, especially on a Friday! Put on your favourite pair of ripped jeans, (these are from my own wardrobe) comfy shoes and you’re ready to go……. or stay on the couch!

{ Crossroads Cardigan $44.95 / Supre Slogan Tee $12.00 / Best & Less Lace-up’s $12.00 }

Whether your heading out for a girlie lunch, date night with someone special or just relaxing at home a super snugly cardi will see you through those winter days or nights.

Layer up your cardigan with a bright scarf or necklace to add a pop of colour. Pair it with jeans, simple white t-shirt and statement clutch or heels.

The possibilities are endless at Cockburn Gateway Shopping City so get your shopping shoes on and have fun!

Week One – Shades of Grey & Khaki

Hello gorgeous people and Happy Monday, let’s get the party started!

Today is a very exciting day for me. As I announced in Friday’s post I am partnering with Cockburn Gateway Shopping City as style blogger for their Winter Fashion Campaign during the month of May.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to bring you the first of many looks over the next four weeks. I thought I would start the month off on a casual note and share two key items that will be must have’s for your Winter wardrobe.

First up the Sleeveless Knit…

There are a few reasons I chose this particular knit….

  1.  I really like this style of neckline.
  2. It is sleeveless which is perfect for the trans – seasonal weather we are having in Perth at the moment and easy to add layers to when the weather gets colder.
  3. I love that the back is a longer length, great for covering up anything you may want to hide!
  4. Lastly it’s a great neutral colour to have in your wardrobe. Easy to dress up or keep casual and grey is definitely on trend at the moment

I decided to go with really simple accessorizing to complete the look and chose this beautiful Snakeskin Cross Body Bag from Colette along with a silver cuff bracelet also from Colette. I like the way the mix of silver and gold tones look with the grey. The shoes are cute ankle booties from Crossroads and black pants with zip detail are from Paper Scissors.

{Ally Fashion High Neck Knit $29.99 / Paper Scissors Black Pant $19.95 / Crossroads Ankle Booties $34.95 / Colette Peta XBody Bag $19.95 & Cuff Bracelet $12.95 }

And now for look number two featuring another winter staple…

The Khaki Jacket!

Khaki in any way, shape or form is big this season! There are lot’s of ways to incorporate khaki into your wardrobe.  I’m wearing this lovely lightweight jacket from Chicabooti with striped t-shirt from Ally Fashion, clutch from Paper Scissors and check scarf from Big W .

And of course casual chic wouldn’t be complete without comfy lace up’s like these ones from Best & Less!

{Chicabooti Khaki Jacket $50.00/ Paper Scissors Black Pant $19.95 & Clutch $20.00 / Ally Fashion Striped Tee $9.99 / Best & Less Sneakers $12.00 / Big W Scarf $15.00}

And that’s a wrap!
