When you haven’t hit the shops to purchase any new clothes in the last 6 months you start to blend in your summer and winter wardrobe. So if this outfit looks a little confused to you that’s the only excuse I have to offer aside from the fact that I love to experiment with the clothes I own.
Today’s outfit combination just works for me. Not because of the way it makes me look but more because of the way it makes me feel. The satisfaction of making the most of all my clothes and not caring about the weather or if the look I bring forward is in fashion or not.

Although my style does lean more towards the casual side, I am not one for a particular sense of style. My outfits are generally based on my mood and how I am feeling which is why the clothing in my wardrobe is so diverse from glam to rock. I do now find that this hairstyle does bring a whole lot of edginess to what I do wear so it’s tricky to look completely conservative at work but I don’t mind it.
Today’s outfit was simply layered for our gorgeous Autumn weather. I am covered in solid colours and have added in my leopard print booties and vintage 70’s handbag to make the outfit a touch more interesting.
Since I have hardly given any love to these gorgeous leopard print booties, I have decided to make it my centrepiece for the entire working week. Make sure you check in daily for updates.

First things first. For everyone that has been following my blog. Thank you again! You have all been wonderful and extremely supportive. It feels both great and rewarding when you tell me that you love my blog 🙂 I haven’t properly blogged on here as much as I would have liked to lately and there are a few reasons for that. Including the launch of my new food and fitness blog – www.trendymommalifestyle.tumblr.com, which was inspired by my commitment to look and feel great on the inside. I know I seem to be committed to a lot of things lately but please do check it out if you haven’t already done so.
Now moving on with the fash…..Where on earth has this year gone?! I remember not knowing how I was going to last 365 days without purchasing any new clothing, when I stated my New Years resolution. However, now that I am over 4 months down the track, I feel like I can keep going and going. Completely driven and dedicated to seeing my resolution through, I have given love to my neglected wardrobe items, and as with todays burgundy criss cross back skater dress, become extremely creative with my wardrobe pairings. This dress has been blogged many times, with various other items and I fall more and more love with it every time. Those leopard booties and distressed denim biker jacket worked a treat with the dress. The style is comfortable meets sexy and versatile enough for our 4 seasons in a day kind of weather here in Melbourne.

Well hello March. The February 1 item, 4 ways challenge may be officially over but I still like a challenge just to keep things interesting. So I’ve set myself up with black and white outfits throughout the working week.
The clothing this week is an accumulation of my old purchases over the years however, the outfit combinations are all stylishly new. It is interesting how I have really started to appreciate all the clothing that I currently own, now that I have committed not to purchasing any new ones.

Its the final day of the 1 item, 4 ways challenge which basically wraps up February.
About 2 years ago I impulsively purchased this navy cocktail dress and since then have just never found the occasion to wear it. So 2 years later, I thought I would add it to this week’s challenge and wear it to the office. A cocktail dress to the office?! Why the hell not. I wore the little black lace shirt underneath which is just gorgeous and would you believe it is absolutely freezing today, so I also made use of my short red Japanese style coat.
As for those leopard booties. Well they are really something and speak for themselves.
