Weekly Lust Have’s

We thought we would introduce a new weekly post, which is all about items we are lusting over from some of our favorite stores.

This week we went into one of our all time favorites, Witchery. It is seriously my go to store, it doesn’t matter what I need or for what occasion I need something…. (or no occasion at all) this is the store where Ill find what I am looking for and is always the first store I go to.

First up is the mid tan heel – this shoe is so cute. It is going to be seen everywhere, all the stores have a similar version. I love this one as the strap in singular, as I am not a fan of cross straps and the shoe is suede.  The heel height is perfect for spring / summer, it is stylish and comfortable for day or night. Team with jeans and cute white blouse and you will just scream summer!

Next up is the cute little white gathered top – Witchery are stating “Loaded with versatility but equally decorative, the Gathered Top will easily take you from the boardroom to bar. The sleek design is rendered with a deep v-front and elasticised waistband with frill details for an ultimately feminine finish“. I am totally agreeing with that, this top is so cute and we think that the semi peplum look adds / or hides any tummy issues you maybe having.

Lastly we are loving the cute crossbody bag. I have my eye on the Chanel Wallet on a Chain (which is just a tad out of my price range) so I have been trying to find something that I would be happy to wear, which looks classy and is functional. With its tan and natural finish this bag is perfect for all outfit colour combos palettes and occasions.This cute little bag ticks all my boxes.

These 3 items should start getting you a little more excited about the future summer days and nights that are slowly making their way too us. Check back next week to see what we are lusting over! xx

Our Favourite Tran Seasonal Piece

The sleeveless cape is going to be / will be a staple as part of the trans seasonal change. It is a go to piece for many right now, including us and we will continue to see them everywhere heading into spring. We love how this one item can completely change the look of an outfit. The sleeveless coat is chic, bold, eye catching and ever so versatile. With so many varieties in style and colour there is bound to be one that suits us all…or you could purchase a couple in different colours – to meet all your needs.

  • Wear the coat over a long sleeve, with jeans and heels for a real chic look.
  • Wear it over a white crisp shirt for the workplace
  • Add a waist cinching belt, to add or show off some curves
  • In summer wear it over a singlet top to show off your killer looking arms

Ideas are endless for this – our favourite trans seasonal piece…..take a look below for more inspro.

Our Camping Must Haves

We just got back from our annual week of glamping at the perfect spot of Port Elliot on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The weather in this neck of the woods is always hit & miss, this year definitely a miss. The day we left it was 40 degrees, but by nightfall that had all changed, hence the list of our clothing “must haves” was created, to make sure all basis were and are covered for future glamping trips.

We have the summer tee dress – this can be worn around on a warm day and is just an easy piece. Rolled up takes up no room at all which is a bonus.

Kaftan – to wear down on the beach over the bathers, especially if your not one confident enough to flaunt it. I live in one of these over the summer on the beach with the kids. I feel comfortable as it is still covering me up but still letting me feel like I’m beach worthy.

Jeans – these should be the first item thrown in the bag. Wear with a tee and thongs or a jumper and sneakers if its colder. What really needs to be said, they speak for themselves.

Shorts – another item which you can’t not take, can’t live without them.

Chambray Shirt – wear it over the dress or with the shorts when it starts to get cooler, wear it under the cardigan that you will also be packing for when the cold spell hits. This is a layering item and will become required at some stage of your trip, so just pack it!

Off course your bag also consists of the cardigan, track pants, bathers, t-shirts, sneakers, thongs and your pyjamas. Making sure all items are within the same colour palette helps mixing & matching. I like to take either black, white & grey palette or a Navy, white & grey palette, then throwing on a bright scarf or necklace for a pop of colour.  Is there anything else you think we may have missed or that you like to take?

Our Wardrobe Must Haves

There are so many items that can go onto such a list. But let’s keep it simple and to the point. I don’t have a huge shopping budget, money usually comes out of the food and bills account (shh don’t tell) so I have to make my purchases count. Before I make the decision to purchase an item I have to make sure it’s needed and can make other wardrobe pieces go further.

My top 5 wardrobe must haves include jeans, striped tee, a blazer, pointy toe flats and a chambray shirt. These may not be on your list but they should be. All 5 items are versatile and will work with everything else in your wardrobe and the best bit is they work with each other.

Jeans are a staple you can wear them for most occasions dress them up, down on the weekend sometimes even to work.

A striped tee is one of the easiest pieces to wear. It is a go to for us and we class it as a neutral and staple. I have not just one but many striped tops in my wardrobe short sleeve and long sleeve for all weather conditions and one for all occasions.  Dress it up with a statement necklace and your black pumps and off you go.

The blazer is a perfect to add another layer of depth and warmth to your outfit.  It’s also perfect to smarten up an outfit, throwing on a blazer takes you from easy casual to smart casual instantly. It doesn’t matter what color you go for though we have black and and I also have an olive/khaki one. Also spring is the perfect time to grab a colored or floral blazer to stand out.

Pointy toe flats or heels….what can I say they make your legs look longer and leaner and just look hot. Between us we have over 15 pairs of pointy toes, between us.  We love them more than any other type of shoe. They are perfect with jeans on a night out or even for work during the day. We think they just make an outfit look polished. I’ll never own enough.

Our final must have peice is the chambray shirt. Not many like the double denim but with a pop of color or a statement peice to draw the eye it works very well and looks super cool.

Once you have some staples you can use them as a foundation to start building the rest of your wardrobe. Add tops, skirts, pants and accessories. What else would add to a wardrobe must have list?
