Day 10 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria……

I said it yesterday that this #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria and Recycled Fashion was making me focus on finding creative styling combinations to keep me interested. Well today I’ve pulled an old trick of mine out of the bag to really mix things up. Today I have taken my ditsy print maxi wrap skirt and styled it into an unconventional strapless wrap dress and cinched it all in at the waist with yet another trusty thrifted belt from my collection. In my earlier twenties I used to wear skirts as strapless dresses and tunics all the time back in…

Day 9 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria….

Sequin sparkly dots on polka dots, why not? As we move further into the second week of the #newyearnewstyle challenge with Vinnies Victoria and Recycled Fashion, I’m having to get more creative with my outfit combinations as I like to have something different to keep my interest going. In other words the challenge is forcing me to look at my ten selected items and put combinations together that I haven’t previously seen potential for, possibly due to having so many options to choose from in my everyday wardrobe when not on this style challenge. So here we are Day 9…

Have you been following the #newyearnewstyle style challenge with Vinnies Victoria and Recycled Fashion.

We are into the second week of the challenge and it will finish on the February 14th, so I’m starting to get into creative styling combinations with my ten chosen garments.

Day 3 of #newyearnewstyle with Vinnies Victoria…..

I’m into the third day of the Vinnies Victoria style challenge #newyearnewstyle along with Erica from Recycled Fashion, and I’m really enjoying it. Going from having free rein and choice to wear whatever I like from my wardrobe on any given day down to the a choice of ten, so far is proving to be quite a fun challenge. Pulling together my ten items on day one I knew I didn’t want to forgo some of the style elements I like the most, like maxi dresses and maxi skirts which are quite a staple in my wardrobe. So here we…

Injection of Fun in The Everyday…..

Monday to Friday the everyday here involves the same same of morning routines and getting Cohen ready for school. With the slight change in the week when Sarah has kindy days and Fraser has family day care. Regardless of the everyday and if it means I’m hanging at home with Sarah and Fraser (because it’s not their days in care), I try to injection some fun or difference into my outfits. Polka Dot Tee: op shopped Denim Skirt: op shopped Polka Dot Braces: op shopped Rainbow Shoes: design, painted and gifted by a dear and talented friend I’m not one…
