My Top 3 Boots For 2015

Growing up in a warm climate I never had the need for boots. That is until I started my travels and I now have a rather large boot collection. A type of boot for all occasions….well thats what I tell myself anyway. I have gathered some of my top boots for the season and mixed in some cool seperates made for the cool months but also transition to the between seasons.

Versatility


David Lawrence beige knit


The thing about the perfect fitting pant/jean is that they should be your go-to. That pair that mixes and matches perfectly with many tops in your wardrobe. The pair that fits even after a huge buffet style meal. The pair that still fits after a few washes. I know we have all gone through the tribulations of battling the fitting rooms in search of the perfect jean/pant. You think…hooray! I have found pair….only to bring them home, wear them and they have stretched out so much that there is no going back. Or you pop them in the wash and they seem to have shrunk an inch or maybe you’ve grown an inch!

My issues arise with length issues and too much stretch. The secret is the amount of elastane . Too much and you will end up unknowingly with the trendy drop crotch pant and not enough, you may have to do a few stretches and squats to try and stretch them out again or they are now called cropped jeans. These jeans seem to be the perfect fit and versatile (worn here also).  A nice mid rise to cover that large meal and a great length to graze your ankles. And did I mention they are on sale?!

Boot Obsession


MIMI 11


Ahh Fall…..or is is winter already? I can’t really tell. All I know is that I was hit with the annoying stuffy nose and sore throat that winter brings. But now on the other side of it, things are looking up. The rustic tones of winter brings a quite elegance and subdued feel that makes you want to cuddle your partner (or poncho!).

Being a Queensland girl, I could never quite get into the winter clothing. I had piles of boot s from overseas travel that just stared at me longingly from my wardrobe. But stare no more! Melbourne cold weather is just perfect for the boots short and tall. And these boots…..I lusted over them for 2 months before making the splurge. All my friends can attest to this. They had no choice but to listen to me about THE BOOTS that would complete my shoe-drobe. And now I have fund the perfect skinny jean that sit perfectly within the soft suede of my perfect boot. I understand that I may have a slight shoe obsession but every girl needs at least one vice!

What is your fashion vice/obessesion?

Chill and Relax this Winter Season

I will admit, I was not quite ready for the Melbourne winter season to hit so rapidly. But being an optimist, I am excited for the warm layers of dressing with luxe wool and cashmere fabrics.  Winter is one of my favorite seasons for dressing. You can look sharp and pulled together with relatively easy and comfortable pieces. The simplicity of a leather skirt, simple baby wool knit top and topped with a versatile wool jacket will feel like a complete yet easy to wear winter look. Add some classic sneakers (seen here also) or a metallic oxford and you are ready to tackle the cooler elements.

The Power Pant


Khaki Cue pants


Life is meant for taking chances.

After living in Melbourne for 7 months now, I am finally getting to see the seasons change and have a full blown Autumn season. This Queensland girl is not used to the leaves falling and of course this brisky weather. I am learning how to dress for this season. Not that I’m complaining. I finally get to wear the many coats I have collected from overseas travel and mix and match my wardrobe like Ive never done before.

I am also learning to jump out of my clothing preference box by going bold with these wide leg and high waisted pants. I call these my Power pants. Living rock and roll lifestyle before, I never got to dress in a semi corporate way. Now I can buy and actually WEAR dress pants and pencil skirts and not have them just look pretty in my wardrobe. Ahh how life has changed and I’m loving it!

Shades of Grey


David Lawrence pants, hunkydorey knit


So this is about as “50 Shades” as I get!

No matter how hard I try with colours, I always seem to revert back to various shades of grey. Don’t get me wrong, I have no aversion to colour but more often than not, I love the subtlety that grey can bring to any outfit. Its classic, contemporary and matches and mixes with so much. My avid readers will know, I am a sucker for luxe fabrics. These pants and sweater being prime examples of putting a quality fabric on the skin and just immediately feeling comfortable and relaxed.

The fall/autumn season is the perfect time to pull out your favorite cozy pieces and wear them simply without having to layer too much. As I always say…comfort and quality is key. (see below for full outfit details)
