LAYERING TIPS

WEARING: Melissa Araujo Slit Dress (PRE ODER Now- Coming Soon), Splendid Leggings, Nike Free Run, Gap Bucket Bag & Club Monaco Sunnies.

If you get creative with your layering you can have a lot of options with the same pieces in your closet. Layering is not just exclusive for cold seasons, you can layer during Summer as well.

1. A good starting point will be an all black outfit (surprise, surprise)
2. Start with simple pieces. In this case I layered our MA Slit Dress on top of a basic legging. This Slit dress is probably the most comfortable thing in my wardrobe right now. Every girl needs a mid black dress and we got you covered.
3. Always add strong accessories, I choose the Nike Free Run for a sporty vibe and to make my all black ensemble pop.
4. If you need you can throw either a blazer, a bomber or a leather jacket to this outfit and it would still work.

This type of outfits are easy to put together, comfortable and functional. It is perfect for those busy days when you don't have time, but still want to look good (which feels like most days for me). Let me know how you like to layer.

BUSY DAYS UNIFORM

WEARING: Cyeoms Crops Top, JBrand Jeans, Converse All Star, Breda Watch and Quay Australia Sunnies.

When you are busy getting things done, going from place to place, what do you wear? Something that will work for all of the occasions. My version of a busy day uniform usually consists of all black palette, ripped skinny jeans, sneakers and a comfortable but cool top. I can't get enough of the Cyeoms Crop Top, it is now added to my wardrobe section of staple pieces. It gives you the opportunity to show skin, but not too much skin - just the right amount. I gotta say I love these images that Mackenzie took; they are moody, creative, edgy and guess what he didn't use photoshop. What do you guys think?

BLACK & WHITE COMBO

WEARING: DIY Skirt, Nike Free 5.0 Trainers, Ray Ban Sunnies, Gap Bucket Bag and THP Shop Rings.

I am back wearing my usual duo - black and white. It is pretty clear I am a sucker for basics and minimal clothes, I also like my hair and accessories to be understated. I had meetings to attend in different parts of the city and to be practical I added some sporty vibes with my Nike Free 5.0 trainers. I always feel my best in sneakers.

I could have easily paired this boxy high neck top with skinny jeans but I wanted to try my latest DIY. I bought this pencil skirt one size up and then cut asymmetrical lines on the sides to make it a little more interesting than the usual classic cut. I have to say I love the result; it is still sophisticated but with an edge, as the top was boxy and conservative I thought the slits of the skirt balanced the look.
