Black and White Stripe with a Touch of Green

I am absolutely loving green at the moment – in my outfits, accessories, nail polishes and make-up. The brightness of the colour is great in the winter season to add light to the more dull colours on our winter colour pallet. By emphasising colour in shoes, bag and accessory choices, it really does achieve a much brighter feel, which I believe is vital in the cooler weather. Today was such a gorgeous day in Brisbane ,so I wanted my outfit to feel and look bright and breezy. To get this look I paired what was a simple black and white maxi dress and a black cardi with a bright green scarf, pumps and polish to brighten up the look.

Mismatched Patterns

This year, I rang in the new year in the fashion capital of the world, New York City. Everything about New York was incredible and literally took my breath away, from the world famous libraries to the architecture, scenery and of course the fashion. Just watching ‘typical New Yorkers’ stroll the gorgeous streets and laneways in their outfits of all different styles was such a wonderful experience. I was amazed by the amount of women (and men too) wearing pattern on pattern, mismatched patterns at that. Somehow they looked incredible, so very stylish. Surprisingly to me, mismatched suddenly became very appealing. However, in the past I have been quite conservative (this is slowly changing as I get older) in my style, so the idea of mismatching patterns is somewhat daunting. Nevertheless my mismatched fashion has started and I am slowly getting the courage to express myself through sometimes very unconservative┬ápieces. I’m loving it and I am having a lot of fun exploring this new element to my style.

{Not overly mismatched, but recently I paired some leopard pattern flats with a scarf with label patterns}
