The Tee Trend: Why I Think It’ll Stick In 2017

Tee Trends

One of my favorite key trends to come out of 2016 was definitely the tee trend, with street style luxe at the forefront of dressing-down dresses and dressing-up the basics. I’ve loved seeing this trend in it’s various forms, and the ways it can be taken from day to night with a simple change of shoes. A great find for me was this dress from Pilgrim Clothing‘s latest range. Isn’t it just the best when you find an outfit that…

What to wear to a Day Party

The festive season is such a fun time of year, there’s always something to do and it’s totally acceptable to party on school nights. There also seems to be way more stuff happening during the day, or afternoons that lead to nights, which can be really tricky to dress appropriately for, especially when there’s work colleagues around or (if you’re like me) you love the endless canapes so much so that your perfectly fitting dress which you put on 3…

Life would Suck without Cat Embroidered Jeans

Calmly Kaotic

Today I’m talking about the reasons life would suck without jeans… specifically these jeans, they have cat faces embroidered.on.the.knees. I actually lol’ed when I spotted these over at Zaful, and then I decided they must be mine. They are actually the most amazing jeans ever, and perhaps that speaks more about my personality then it does anything else, but it brings light to fact that jeans are not only the most versatile item in any wardrobe but also say a…

Jord Wood Watches Giveaway

I’ve always had a thing for watches. I never had a digital watch growing up, my parents made me learn to read analog very early on and I’ve been kind of obsessed with watches ever since. Getting a new watch for my birthday was always THE BEST THING EVER and I’ve now got quite a collection. I love that a watch can really make an outfit and say something about your style (aside from it’s actual function of time keeper!).…

Ripped Jeans Style

Ripped Jeans NZFW

I had a style epiphany in NZ while rummaging through my suitcase trying to piece together the perfect FW outfit (I had barely unpacked from Europe when I threw a few things in a bag and left for NZ!). So I’m disorganised, yes. That’s not new information. What I did realise however is that… I am also basic.  I enjoy basics. I love simplicity. Minimalistic styling, monochromatics & neutrals are my every day uniform. More specifically, these One Teaspoon ripped…
