Favourite Spring Fashion Finds

Featured

With warmer weather finally here, I’ve been searching for some fab new fashion finds for a fun Spring time wardrobe. These are just a few of my favourites:

Country Road Leaf Print Dress $129

I bought a dress in the same style and stretch cotton fabric from Country Road last year, and I wore it to DEATH. So when I spotted this dress that was very similar, I just had to snap it up.  It’s comfy, wearable, easy to wash, with no ironing needed (happy clap!) and it’s in a gorgeous green pattern – perfect for warm spring and summer days.

Witchery T Bar Sandals $79.95

You can’t go past a fabulous pair of flats for Summer, and these elegant gold t-bar sandals are ideal to slip on with jeans and a tee for casual-glamour or with a colourful maxi.  These will go with everything.

Sportsgirl Marble Printed Midi Skirt $59.95

I love the pops of fuchsia and yellow in this soft stretchy skirt.  It’s an elegant pencil shape and would be ideal with a white shirt and heels for the office, or with flats and a tee for the weekend.

Portmans Floral Bloom Top $59.95

I love this gorgeous top, it’s fresh and florally and screams spring time sunshine. You could pair it with coloured jeans as shown in the photo, or with denim shorts and loads of fun arm candy.

Sportsgirl Round Enamel Bangle $16.95

One of the lovely mums at Gymbaroo recently commented on my bright t-shirt and told me ‘I can’t wear colour’.  It made me realise that a year ago I didn’t wear much colour either.  Whether it’s because I thought I couldn’t, or whether I didn’t feel confident enough to wear it I’m not sure, but a great way to introduce colour to your wardrobe is with some fun arm candy.  These bangles come in gorgeous shades of turquoise, yellow, hot pink, sherbet, orange, black and cream. They have a hint of an Hermès cuff about them. (We can all dream, right?). And for less than $20, they’re a steal!

Happy spring 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.

Hot Trend: The Metal Belt

After the Logies on Sunday night, there was some Twitter talk about the metal belt trend.  I asked my fabulous fashion blogger friend And Andrea where to find one of these amazing belts, and she suggested Sportsgirl.  I headed into my local store that very afternoon and snapped one right up!

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?
