Last Saturday these photographs were taken before I headed for a girls night out. When we were younger a girls night out would have involved clubs, lots of alcohol and bedtime in the early morning but now we opt for a chick flick followed by dinner. We aren’t old…we just prefer to devote our energy to other things in life now.

While baggy clothes and sneakers are generally the make up of my weekend style, it was easy to see that my look is unique within my close friendship circle. For instance they’d never wear hi-tops and a boilersuit let alone have a side shave hairstyle. I on the other hand could never rock a mini body con dress, get away make-up free or have waist length luscious locks to show for.
Occasionally, an old photo of us comes out and we laugh at how daggy we once were even though it seemed so trendy at the time or more recently notice how much we have aged. As we have aged, our looks have matured and so have we. We are all so much more confident and comfortable in our own skin and what we wear. I love that we are all so different and if we were all to exhange wardrobes for a day I’d be certain that our outfits would still reflect our personal sense of style.

Do you notice the style variety within you close friendship circle? I want to hear about it.
As always thanks for reading and I hope you love these photographs that I hold dear to me. Now lets all enjoy the freaking weekend.
p.s Only 45 days of my New Years Resolution left. Let the countdown begin baby.
Due to an extremely long and lazy weekend, my outfits have been very casual over the last few days. You will however notice a change in my attire as I head back to work from tomorrow.
Today was a new experiment with my tartan shirt. Over the last few months, I have become obsessed about what I can do with all the shirts in my wardrobe. In the process I have since discovered how versatile this piece of clothing is. You can wear it under clothes, over clothes, tucked in, tuck out, buttoned up, unbuttoned, knotted, sleeves rolled up…you get my drift.
I wore my shirt crossed over today, almost like a wrap. As illustrated in the first three snaps, simply tuck the corner ends of of your shirt in the opposite side of your jeans. It’s not ground breaking however if you have yet to wear it this way, its something you can definitely experiment with. I wish I thought of wearing it this way when I was breastfeeding.
