Embellished Cardi, Colourful Skirt & Metallic Accessories

Image
I feel like autumn has only just arrived here and in a few weeks it'll be winter already!  I'm not complaining though!  I do love the weather at this time of year and fully embrace the cool change to come!  I love that the mornings and evenings are cool, but the day time is warm.  It really is a great time of year.  Another thing I enjoy, is that I can finally wear my long sleeved tops, cardigans and jumpers!  
There are loads of fun embellished cardis around at the moment.  I bought 2 the other day!  The first one is this pretty stud embellished cardi.  It's such a gorgeous colour and I love the metallic studs on it.  I decided to wear one of my fave blue tops underneath it and also my multi-patterned midi skirt. The colour scheme is very autumnal, so it prompted me to accessorise with mixed metal jewellery and rose gold coloured shoes!  I love metallic accessories and think they are always fun to wear, whether or not they are considered on trend or not!

Styling Embroidered Jeans

I am absolutely loving the weather right now!  The days are mostly still warm but there's a bit of a cool change in the air and the nights are cooling down.  It's such a pleasant relief after such a sweltering summer!  I even wore jeans a few days ago for the first time this year!  
I bought these embroidered jeans last year and wore them lots until it became too hot!  I love embroidered pieces of clothing!  They just add that bit of extra colour, fun and creativity to a garment.  I'm sure I will get a lot more wear out of these jeans from now until the heat returns!

Japanese Flower Pendant: thrifted
I found this flower shaped kimono fabric pendant on a recent op-shop trip.  I added it to a black metallic chain and voila, a new necklace is made!  This was such a good find!  It was only $2!  I saw many similar pendants in Japan and they were much more expensive than that!  Yay for op-shop treasures!…

Styling Red Paisley Pants

Image
With the weather finally starting to cool down, I can now finally wear my (many!) pairs of colourful patterned pants!  I bought this red paisley pair last year and I absolutely love them!  They are such a vibrant mix of colours and of course I love the paisley print.  Also, they are just so comfortable to wear! 
For this year's first wear, I decided to wear a black top and my new red cardi.  I love the detailing on the sleeves and of course, the bright red colour!  This was also my first time to wear my new HCD shoes.  How could I not wear them?  They match perfectly!  ;)

Fun Florals!

Image
It's funny how nature can inspire outfits, even when nature is in the form of a bunch of flowers!  Sunflowers are such fun and happy flowers and it was such a nice surprise to get a bunch from the husband!  ;)  I have enjoyed admiring them all week and am sure they inspired the two outfits below, as I found myself unusually gravitating towards florals in the past week! ;)
I couldn't resist incorporating one of the sunflowers into the photos!  It was so much fun goofing around!

Accessorising with Tie-Dye

Image
I have always loved tie-dye and I'm fairly certain I always will!  Tie-dye has been around for centuries, way before it was made famous by hippies in the 1960s!  It seems tie-dye will always be on trend every few years and in fact, tie-dye is one of the major fashion trends of 2019.  Even Prada has designed a tie-dye bag!

In my twenties I wore lots of tie-dye from head to toe.  As much as I still love that look on other people, these days I prefer to wear tie-dye accessories or one main item of tie-dye clothing.  As nice as the above bag is, it's not exactly in my price range!  Luckily, there are lots of fun tie-dye accessories that are much more my style and price range!  
My 2 favourite tie-dye accessories can be seen in the 3 outfits below!
