Five Ways to Celebrate Spring for Under $50

It was so amazing to welcome spring with a gorgeous sunshiny day here in Perth.  It made me think about ways to update my wardrobe and I went on the hunt for some fun and fabulous springtime buys that won’t break the budget.

Sportsgirl Ziggy Zag Enamel Necklace $24.95

This colourful and fun necklace would look amazing with a pencil skirt, shirt and heels for the office or with a t-shirt, jeans and ballet flats for coffee with the girls.

Dotti Love Heart Leopard Tee $9.95

I spotted this leopard tee and immediately snapped it up – it’s got a hint of Sass and Bide, and for under $10 – it’s a total steal!

Thakoon for Nars Nail Collection $32

Nail polish is a really fun and easy way to add some colour to your day and these gorgeous shades of gelato would be guaranteed to make you smile.

Forever New Katherine Scarf $19.99

I love scarves, they are the perfect transitional season wardrobe staple and immediately dress up an ordinary outfit of jeans and a tee.

The Iconic Cobalt Blue Boston Belle Ballet Flats $49.98

Style guru And Andrea recently revealed that cobalt blue has been voted ‘Colour of the Decade’.  These fabulous leather Boston Belle ballet flats are a great way to style your way into spring for less than $50.

Happy shopping lovelies!

Winter Wardrobe Warmers

I’m off to Melbourne for the weekend, and I can’t even tell you how excited I am!  WOO-HOO! ! I think I’m going to be in for a massive shock with the weather, as we have been having the most incredibly mild autumn over here on the west side.  Today is a top of 24 degrees and the next few days are looking pretty similar.  I’ve just checked the forecast for Melbourne and it’s going to be a top of 16 degrees for the whole weekend. BRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

I’m compiling a wish list of winter wardrobe warmers to help me brave the chill:

Forever New Gianna Faux Fur Stole $34.99

I adore the rich hue of this fur stole, it would compliment any winter outfit and looks lovely and soft to snuggle into.

Saba Camel Coat $599

This camel coat is an absolute classic and would be a great investment piece that would last for years and years to come.

Bardot Leather Gloves $24.98

I love the texture of these gloves, they would be perfect for keeping my mitts toasty and warm and are a total bargain!

Sportsgirl Sweater Dress $39.95

I’m a big fan of the sweater dress, you can dress it down with tights and flats during the day, and then add heeled boots and some glamorous accessories for evening. And for this price, how can you resist?

Forever New Phoenix Chevron Coat $149.99

I love this faux fur coat, it screams rock chick and would look great teamed with the over-the-knee boots below.

Tony Bianco Livia Boots $229.95

I really need a classic pair of black boots, and as much as I would love to buy heels, motherhood means that practicality rules, so these gorgeous over-the-knee boots are the perfect compromise.

All that Glitters

In my Winter Wardrobe post last Friday, I stumbled across an amazing pair of sequin pants from Bardot. Then Andrea from Fox in Flats issued a sparkle dare this week, and I became  obsessed with finding the ultimate sequin skirt. I put my quest out there over Twitter and amazingly, Andrea put her shopping prowess to the test and came up with this post dedicated to my search for a sequin skirt – how’s that for service? In the meantime, I had uncovered a whole host of other glittery garments that I just can’t take my eyes off.

Bardot Sequin Pants – $139.95

These are the sensational sequin pants from Bardot. You could rock them with a black sheer shirt as shown here, or throw a faux fur vest over the top for texture overload!

Asos Gold Sequin Dress – $89.21

This dress is a beautifully classic shape and the gold sequins are just heavenly. It’s such a knockout that it doesn’t need anything more than a fabulous pair of heels.

Sportsgirl Sassy Collar Necklace – $29.95

I’m loving fun collars at the moment. This could be a fab look for work with a pencil skirt, heels and top. Or you could wear it with a t-shirt and jeans for a cheeky day time look.

Saba Sequin Tank – $169

This shiny tank would look amazing with leather pants / leggings, a jacket and sky high heels. It would be perfect for a hot dinner date or a fun night out with the girls.

Zoe Wittner Amber Red Sequin Shoes – $169.95

These shoes should be called ‘There’s No Place Like Home’ and are sure to make your day, and everyone else’s for that matter!  It would be so much fun to look down at your feet and see all those gorgeous red glittery sequins shining right back at you.

Forever New Vanessa Sequin Stripe Tunic – $89.95

This is such a great way to rock sequins during the day. You could wear it to work with black skinny pants, heels and some glittery neck candy; or during the day with leggings and loafers.

How have you rocked Andrea’s sparkle dare this week?

Winter Wardrobe Finds

I’ve been doing a little Autumn / Winter wardrobe research (OK…. online shopping) recently and thought I would share some of my favourite finds with you;

Full Hearts Jumper $49.95 Dotti

What a fun and gorgeous knit! I would wear it with a pair of skinny jeans, ballet flats and some fun arm candy.

Feather Necklace $12.95 Colette Accessories

I am so loving feathers right now. This necklace is the perfect way to instantly take a plain outfit of jeans, white t-shirt, black blazer and heels to F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! And all for $12.95. Happy days.

Ladakh Mirage Dress $129.95  Myer

Metallics are huge this season, I would wear this hot little number with a pair of killer heels and some fabulous earrings. (Courtesy of www.andandrea.com)

Coloured Animal Scarf $24.99 Forever New

Scarves are the ultimate trans-seasonal wardrobe staple and I can’t get enough of them. As soon as the weather starts to get a bit chilly, I’ll wear this little beauty with jeans and a top for an instant pop of colour.

Speckled Faux Fur Vest $103.96 Bardot

I have been eyeing these faux fur vests off since last season, they are so chic and glamorous – and for this price, it’s a steal! If I was feeling daring, I would rock it with the sequinned pants too.

Happy shopping lovely ladies!
