Hey girlies, hope you’ve had a lovely Feb! I can’t believe it’s almost March 2015! Insane right? SO today I’m totally thinking outside the box to send one strong cohesive message. My theory is think about ‘what goes with what’ without actually putting too much thought into it …confusing?
Well that’s my point – what I’m trying to say is don’t stress over your outfit too much. Just have fun! I started by choosing my shoes (obviously) I loveee heels with platforms – super comfortable and they just look incredible and make my legs look super long 🙂 Always a bonus! Since prints are huge this S/S15 – I thought I’d take this opportunity and mix it up with the denim trend which is another trend that’s massive for SS/15! See how simple it can be? Ha! Easily said than done … but just work it work it work it 🙂
One last thing… Never be afraid of mixing up trends. Just because you don’t like the 70’s trend for S/S15 doesn’t mean you can’t borrow the prints 😉

It’s the question that divides the world: Should you or shouldn’t you double up on your denim. Gucci impressed on the SS15 catwalk in Milan with western meets military feel, featuring high-waisted straight jeans, finished off with fitted denim jackets. However Gucci wasn’t the only one who captivated audiences this season. Chloe, Fendi, Roberto Cavalli and Isabel Marant also totally contrasted the blue double denim and embedded it to the SS15 catwalks. It was hard to find a show that didn’t have slouchy boy fits, almost vintage looking jeans, lots of distressing and even some embellishments and patchwork!
I personally feel it’s about time we forgot about double denim’s past misfortunates and the bad interpretations and give this style another chance. I’ve gone for a totally casual look here, going for a lighter denim shirt to illustrate the contrast between washes. I’ve added a hint of pink to make it feel more ‘girly’. Just have fun – break the rules.
So what is this ‘smart casual’ thing everyone’s going on about? First thing first: does not mean whacking on a blazer over a pair of jogging bottoms, so get that out of your head. Anyone can cook up a killer smart casual outfit given the right ingredients. I always play around with it as there’s no right or wrong. Just go with the flow I would say- but here’s a formula I use:
One casual piece + Dressy piece + Dressy shoes + Dressy accessories = Smart Casual.
So the casual piece I’ve gone for is this gorgeous bomber jacket – bombers are huge this S/S15. Love the rock print adds a touch of colour to the outfit. My dressy pieces are the dress, shoes and the colour block clutch bag.
The dress is super cute and the perfect length to rock during the day as well as the evening. The shoes- well they speak for them self! It’s soooo lush and super comfortable.
