What I wore today...

 Super simple outfit I wore today. Ripped jeans and all white converses are my go to at the moment. Kinda boring, but great on the go and when you can't be bothered thinking about what to wear! I wore my absolute favourite t-shirt by JNBY, which is a twist on a classic white oversized t-shirt - see below. I wore a navy stretch blazer, also by JNBY. This outfit was worn with Ruby Woo by MAC and a meadowlark necklace.


Here are some better photos of the t-shirt. It is a scoop neck oversized cotton t-shirt, but with a section of strips that are woven together. 


I've been meaning to start doing actual OOTD posts, however, I don't know anyone that can photograph these images. I'll figure something out though, so keep checking back

Designer to watch: Hannah Claire



Hannah Claire is a new clothing label designed by Hannah Rutherford. Her newest collection for Spring 2015 (southern hemisphere) is beautifully simplistic and will fit into any girl's wardrobe.

I discovered Hannah Claire only recently, however instantly loved her design style. 
I have recently finished 2 years of studying fashion design and initially becoming a fashion designer was my dream, but once I realised how damn difficult it is, I shifted my dreams to the business side of fashion (hence why I changed my 3rd year to marketing). So I have so much respect for Hannah because she designs, patterns and sews each of these garments, which you have to be so talented and determined to do!

The french bulldog top is my absolute favourite of her newest collection.  I may even have to purchase this one, once I stop being a poor student!!

Take the time to check out her website: http://hannahclaire.co.nz/ which has more of her collections, including her bridesmaid dresses and jewellery! 

Hannah Claire is available at a number of stockists throughout New Zealand, and can also be purchased via her website.

HOW TO WEAR: Tartan


I've been so inspired by tartan lately (especially by the likes of Kate Spade's AW15 collection!) so decided to do a post on my take on how to wear tartan. It can be worn a number of different ways and to anywhere from work to a date night to casual wear. 



For the first two outfits, are worn by two bloggers who I have been following lately - Shannon from http://www.upbeatsoles.com/ and Kendall from http://itskendallkay.com/. They both have great style and when I searched their blogs for tartan outfits, I loved what I found! I also love how they are actually wearing very similar shoes in these outfits!
Kendall's outfit, which on her blog is labelled "Plaiditude", is great for in between seasons. I love how she has used plaid on plaid. This look has a grungy high fashion feel which I love <3
Shannon is wearing a super cute outfit, which is also perfect for in between seasons. I love the details in this outfit - the sequin shoulders and front tucked in shirt.

Make sure to check out their blogs, you will be inspired! 

Wearing plaid is a great workwear wardrobe staple! A statement skirt or matching cropped suit teamed with white or black is on trend. I am in love with the outfit on the right, which I found on lookbook - http://lookbook.nu/look/4932774-Gigi-New-York-Embossed-Python-Leather-Clutch. However, I then discovered her amazing blog! http://www.withorwithoutshoes.com/


For the last outfit example, I had to show the infamous clueless blazer! Worn as is above with high waisted skinny jeans and a basic cropped top is perfect for on trend casual wear.

Spring oranges, blues and golds

Recently I have been working on a (hypothetical) marketing plan for Karen Walker as part of study. I have spent many hours researching her background, collections, tactics etc etc etc. I came across her SS16 Northern Hemisphere collection, "Star City" and felt so inspired. The mix of oranges, blues, golds and whites and a perfect modern spring combo. 

In NZ, we are currently starting Spring, and even though this collection is for SS16 and therefore not on sale yet, I have felt inspired to incorporate this into my current wardrobe. 

I also came across a few other designers who had a similar feel to their outfits in SS15.

 DKNY SS15
 Topshop Unique SS15
 DKNY SS15
CHANEL SS15 




These two trends are obviously slightly different and from different seasons, however I love the feel that they both give off! I can't wait until Star City is released and I can go in store and have a look at it for myself.

Lace bras and Neon shorts


Sunday is my only day off in the week and that means either relaxing or going out for lunch/coffee/shopping. It's currently spring here in NZ, however the past few days have been as bad as winter.
This is my favourite type of spring/summer outfit to wear - ripped shorts and a comfy t-shirt!
I realise this look is very similar to my Wednesday post Pink//&//Grey, however I promise I do wear other colours! I've just been in a pink and grey mood lately...

Shorts by Supre (pink is sold out) or similar style here. Top is by Witchery, bra is by Cotton on Body (sold out) similar here. Clutch bag by Colette Hayman. Watch by Micheal Kors.

Mono Ink


I'm still getting used to this flat lay business, but here's one I put together based on work attire.
Shoes by Siren, Top by Cue, Pants by Glassons, Bracelet set by Lovisa. Also featured: Chanel eyeshadow quad in Tisse Cameila, Acqua Di Geo by Giorgio Armani perfume, pencil holder from Typo. 

This look was actually inspired by the shoes, which are one of my favourite pairs. These shoes are by a fairly affordable, but good quality brand, called Siren. However, this style was actually inspired by Stella McCartney's wooden wedge pumps, which were worn by Mary-Kate Olsen on the cover of Elle in September 2008. I always remembered this issue - maybe because Mary-Kate is one of my biggest style icons or maybe because this was when my love for this style of shoe began. Obviously I couldn't afford the $800 Stella McCartney shoes, so when I saw this pair by Siren for 1/4 of the price, I had to have them. And they have remained in my wardrobe ever since

Pink//&//Grey

Lately I've been really inspired by shades of grey, worn with a pop of colour. Bubblegum pink is one of my favourite colours to wear also. The two worn together, with black and white pieces, are perfect. I created this mood board a few days ago, showing what is inspiring me lately.

How to wear this look?
This look is so simplistic, yet so perfect and is so easy to pull off. Wearing simple ripped jeans with a light grey knit top (even a basic t-shirt works great), teamed with a bubblegum lipstick and pink converse shoes. The key is to have 2-3 pieces of pink, and keep the rest of your look monotone.

Grey nails ft. green smoothie



In between assignments, I decided to treat myself to a fresh set of acrylics. Pretty nails help stress levels. I've been loving grey nail polish lately, even though its now technically spring (in NZ), I still love this understated look.
In frist photo I'm wearing silver stacker rings by equip and Micheal Kors watch.

My first flat lay?

The other day my order from Quay Australia arrived! I ordered the "Sunday Girl" sunglasses in bright orange. I stumbled across this site one night when I was procrastinating about doing an assignment and thought “wow i would love some of these….but I bet they are around the $200 mark”. So when I saw that they are only $50AUD, I had to order some!
I have been wanting to do a flat lay for a while now and today I had some down time, so I decided to give it a go.
Is this a flat lay? I’m not sure, but I like it.
I included a few of my favourite orange MAC lipsticks and my new JNBY leather make-up purse. As well as what I had on hand, my laptop, headphones and ice tea.
Make sure to check Quay Australia out! They have some amazing styles :)

me, visually

I love creating mood boards and collages, so to introduce myself, I thought I would create one based on what I love and what I’m about.
A lot of the things I love contrast against each other. For example, I love anything pink and girly, however I also love Marilyn Manson. I love designing, sewing and creating, yet I also love to watch horror movies when I’m home alone and its raining.
On an unrelated note, I linked this blog to my bloglovin’ account, so if you are on there, feel free to follow :)
