Wonderful weekend <3

Crazy busy weekend, such beautiful and unforgettable moments with the people I love, and a splash of shopping !

That pretty much sums up my weekend…

Saturday morning began with a mad rush to our local “mall” as mum and I quickly tried to get some super important pre-christening errands done.

I was feeling very drained from the work week, struggling to get out of bed and get to it, so I thought I’d try and refresh myself for a big day ahead by adding a fresh pop to my outfit.

Nothing screams BRIGHT louder than a neon multi-coloured cross appliqued across your chest on a sheer pastel.

Add a neon textured scarf to it and VOILA you’re shining “bright like a diamond”.

Do we love it ?!

Limping around with my knee I just couldn’t resist ! I had to stop by at Betts,and well… we all know what happens when I stop by at Betts Smile

YAY – Brought new shoes ! *smiles like a loser*

image

With my knee, back problems and all, These shoes don’t actually have much of a high heel AND are a great spring/summer style that go with pretty much anything in the wardrobe.

Love the wood and thick black strap design – Cannot wait to take these babies on a Test run.

Shopping was over – we quickly headed home so that I could get my face and hair “did” for our beautiful baby Alex’s christening and First birthday !

Half a can of hairspray and 40 minutes of makeup later, it was dress time !

It seems that when I have important functions there is always something wrong with at least one part of my body, but it’s okay no panic here, we just keep our fashion face on !

For this look I meshed formal with confidence and comfort and with that I present to you the beautiful Saskia Maxi from Zen clothing !

A gorgeous blue and yellow print, elasticated waist, gold embellished high scoop neck and halter cut.

It was just perfect for all my “body” problems.

I wanted to hide my legs,thanks to knee surgery they were uneven and slightly muscle-less, so the smartest way to do it was with a maxi !

As the dress already had a gold embellishment on the neck, Accessorising it was easier than ever.

we added one of these babies.

Gold plated waist belt.

image

Completely on-trend and very easy to find.

image

After the gold comes the nude !

Nude beginnings ?!

Add a big envelope bag made from textured material to dress it up.

and instead of cluttering the look with bangles and bracelets, I just did it simple with a tortoise-shell like Fossil watch.

image

and finally the shoes.

Usually I would dazzle it up with a pair of platforms but due to my knee I found the perfect pair of not-so-casual flats.

Thankyou Therapy and my Boss for helping me hunt these down !

Snakeskin detailed straps.

and a little heel so the back and knees don’t cry.

image

Now we were ready to go to the church for the christening.

image

Congratulations Little one on this very special day, you have a whole life ahead of you an we are so happy to be apart of your life – Sharing every little step you take.

After the Church comes the reception of course !

The wonderful parents and Godparents or Alex did a tremendous job at decorating.

Every Child’s heaven.

…And a hint of Neon

Personally, I LOVE Popping bright colours Especially all the neon palettes in Sydney’s stores !

BUT there are some people who AREN’T as experimental with the crazy range of colours in season.

Don’t Fret -There is a solution to follow the trend and not be so OUT THERE !

There’s a lot of things I pick up on when styling at Target. It’s amazing how much I learn about clients habits, insecurities, and personalities just from what they choose off the stylist’s Rack.

One of the bigger issues is this idea that “oh it probably looks better on the hanger so I don’t think I’m willing to take off all the layers and try it on”. Perfect example : Majority would never wear my red snake skin denim right ? or a short fluoro belted peplum skirt for a corporate look? They are much more reserved and tamed BUT when they take a good look at what I’m wearing (yes it’s that outfit they doubted as they walked passed it ) it gives them this massive confidence boost to get on the sales floor and pick up all the styles they’ve wanted to wear but haven’t ! I’m curvy and absolutely un proportioned so none of them have the excuse “oh but you’re a model – it will always look better on you” Yes Ladies I have plenty of Junk in ma Trunk ! ha-ha

Having said that, If you are a more tamed individual who wants to follow the “ fluoro/neon” trend that’s hitting the stores do it subtly with a neon coloured belt instead.

It can add pop to any plain outfit without making you feel insecure or too BOLD – after all, it’s just a belt, don’t like it then just take it off or switch it… !

We have some great dresses and pants in store and online all with fluoro belts.

Here are my picks:

Very cute black and white patterned dress with an orange removable belt ! The bright belt gives more flare to the already contrasted dress !

This dress is $59 – to purchase online click on the image.

If you have plenty of tops in different colours then this may just be the pant for you. (even if you don’t, the neon belt is there to bring out your outfits)

It’s a very comfortable,skinny leg pant with stretch ($45). It also comes with a removable orange belt to help keep you on trend no matter what season it is.

Mix and Match different coloured belts according to the palette’s of your outfits.

Two little black dresses – one with lace and the other with awesome peek-a-boo shoulders ! Both $39 and have neon belts.

Such cute outfits !

You can even mix and match coloured belts for all these outfits as well as mixing and matching handbags and shoes.
