Week 4, February 1 item, 4 ways challenge – The little lace shirt Day 58 –Simplistically stylish
Its day 3 of this weeks 1 item, 4 ways challenge and there is quite a bit of activity occurring in the office today, so I have opted for comfortable clothes and shoes. The simple details in this outfit provide it with a point of difference. From the cut of the top, to the pocket zip details on the trousers, to the bows on my shoes to the exquisite vintage brooch.

Week 4, February 1 item, 4 ways challenge – The little lace shirt Day 57 – the 3 L’s
Leather, leopard and lace. Not over the top at all. In fact, it’s a fabulous combination if you have the right pieces. I have worn a white-t-shirt over my lace shirt to break up all the black and add some definition. This outfit is sexy yet so rock ‘n’ roll.

Week 4, February 1 item, 4 ways challenge – All abou the little lace shirt Day 56 of no shopping – lace on lace
It is Monday, so I thought I could wear an outfit that is a combination fun, girly and cute to lift my ‘the weekend isn’t long enough’ mood. I have played it safe today with the colours and shades allowing the gorgeous lace pattern on my knit dress run the show. The cute skinny belt over my outfit was also a must to give me some shape.
It is hot out today, but just in case the air-con at work gets out of control I brought along with me the cutest blue lace jacket to throw over the top. The highlight however is my adorable 1950’s vintage purse handbag which I picked up at a local vintage store.

My February 1 item, 4 ways challenge has been soo much fun. So far this month I have challenged myself with wearing a dress, blazer and leggings in 4 different ways.
My final subject for this challenge, is a little black lace shirt. To be honest, I found it difficult to put together my outfits for this week. I got there in the end but for a moment, it felt like I was running out of clothes and what I had just wasn’t enough. I get the feeling you know what I am talking about.
Heres hoping my efforts pay off in this weeks blog posts. I can’t wait to show you the outfits that I have put together.
P.s I wish I owned one of those wire mannequins so that I could post a better picture of this shirt for you. Apologies for my poor photography.
I wore a purple patterned shirt over my burgundy dress and added the blazer over the top. Patterns are the go at the moment, but unless you have the right pattern combination from head to toe, I say don’t over-do-it.
