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.

Being sweet this season

The cool Winter season chills have started and although Brisbane experiences only a very mild cold season, we all tend to feel it. Unlike most, when the cool season begins I’m not putting away my sweet fragrances, instead I am pulling them out. I love beautiful sweet fragrances in Winter to soften the blacks, greys and nudes that are often on the winter colour pallet. I know smell is not seen, but the mixture of scent and colour can create a perfect balance. This Winter I am loving Signorina by Salvatore Ferragamo and Oscar by Oscar De La Renta. They are chic, sophisticated with a touch of creativity and fun.

The bigger the watch the better

When it comes to accessories I can be quite conservative and go for dainty simple pieces that do not take too much emphasis off my outfit. But this winter I have been very much wanting to express myself through large gorgeous pieces that really stand out, so when I came across this watch on my recent visit to Melbourne, I couldn’t resist.
