Styling Black & Pink

Candy Skull Chocolaticas by Hot Chocolate Design (HCD)
These shoes have been the inspiration for many pink and black outfits lately!  You know how much I love fun and quirky accessories and these shoes are no exception!  As well as having such fun designs, these shoes are just so comfy!  (Not a sponsored post: just love 'em!😉).
Black and pink has never really been a combo I've worn much before, but these shoes have prompted me to look through my wardrobe and create some new outfits based on this colour palette.  Such is the power of amazing accessories!

Under the Sea

I've always been fascinated by the sea and its creatures.  I love visiting aquariums and seeing all the weird and wonderful colours and shapes of our underwater inhabitants!  My favourite aquarium is in Osaka, Japan.  One could easily spend an entire day (if not more) checking out the amazing sea life!

One creature that has always intrigued me in particular, is the jellyfish.  When I saw these fabulously quirky blue sparkly jellyfish earrings (below), I knew I had to have them!  Infact, they were the inspiration for this outfit!  I chose to wear all of my fave blue pieces to complement them.  
The outfit: Top: Sussan Cardi: Millers Skirt: Sirocco Shoes: H & M

Earrings: Tattooed Zombie
Bag: Rockmans I chose this bag because I thought the tassel looks like jellyfish tentacles!

Echo of the Ocean Brooch: Erstwilder I thought this diving dolphin was the perfect final touch for this outfit!

Purple Haze

The weather is all over the place at the moment, so some days it's hard to know what to wear!  The mornings are still cold, but if there's no breeze, by lunch time it's lovely and warm outside in the sun.  I am by no means complaining about the weather though, as living in a sub-tropical climate means most of the year is hot, so any cooler weather is welcome in my book!  
Wearing layers is the key here in winter, so you can strip down accordingly as the day progresses!  For this outfit, I initially had a jacket on when I left the house, but soon it was shed so my kimono could be seen!
I was feeling in a purpley mood (whatever that means!😂) and was excited to wear my new accessories for the first time.  I only bought the necklace and earrings last week.  Also, I recently bought another pair of Hot Chocolate Design shoes in tie dye.  Aren't the colours gorgeous?!  My inner hippie was so happy wearing these shoes!  Peace, love & new shoes! Ha!😂

The outfit: Top: Kati…

Dinosaur Day!

Although I don't wear graphic tees much anymore, I still can't resist a good one when I see one!  I recently stumbled upon this one at H & M and had to have it! 
I love the movie Jurassic Park (the original only!) and I really like the colours of the flowers on this tee, so I knew this top was coming home with me! 
I loved dinosaurs as a kid and have remained fascinated by them as an adult.  I have passed my interest onto my son who  seems to know more about them than a paleontologist!!😂I look forward to when he's old enough to watch Jurassic Park (without having nightmares), so that we can discuss what it would be like if dinosaurs roamed the earth again! 
Back to the outfit now!  I decided to wear this top with this gorgeous pre-loved skirt that I bought in Japan a few years ago.  It is so pretty and is fully lined.

Goodbye July!

I've been sick with a cold the last few days, so there will be no new photos of me in this post because I look like this at the moment!😂

Anyway, I thought this was a good opportunity to look through July's outfits and come up with my top ten.  I had fun creating outfits in July, making the most of my existing wardrobe.  It was also fun to wear scarves too!  After such a long and sweltering summer, I never could imagine getting the chance to wear scarves!
So, without further ado, here's July's Top Ten!

Amber's favourite is outfit 4, because she got to pose with me!  Ha!  Although, she does not exactly look too amused by the whole thing, does she?!
Which outfit do you like the most?  My favourite is outfit 5.  I loved wearing this black top and green skirt together with the matching scarf!  Let me know which outfit/s you like best!  I'd love to hear from you! 

Thank you …
