Check please

Shorts: Cotton On, Shirt: JCrew, Belt: Aritzia, Clutch: Plum, Sandals: Aldo, Necklace: Vintage Belt (thanks Mom!)

You can’t really go wrong with black and white. You can, however, end up looking like you should be waiting tables. My tip? Add a big old necklace (even better if it’s a gold belt your mom wore in the 80s) and a bright clutch.  Done and done.

Stylish Comfort

Shorts: Cotton On (in NZ), Lace top: Aritzia, Denim shirt: Aritzia, Ballet Flats: JCrew, Bag: swapped, Bracelet: H&M, Sunnies: Joe Fresh

I’ve never thought you have to trade comfort for style, to me it’s all in the approach. Take a couple of basics in neutral colours, thrown in cute flats, choose a statement piece (I’m along the lines of go big or go home) and voila—chic and comfy.

Running errands doesn’t have to mean sweatpants ;) .

Blue Times Two

Jeans: Gap, Shirt: Anthropologie, Denim Shirt: Aritzia, Clutch: Plum, Shoes: J.Crew, Necklaces: Pyrrha and Jeanine Payer from Rubaiyat, Earrings: Type B Sunglasses: Joe, Summer 2010

Recognize the shirt? I know, I know it has stripes…I can’t help it. I don’t normally mix denim with denim, it reminds me too much of the early 2000s when the all-denim look was all the rage (thanks Britney and Justin) however when I threw on this denim shirt it seemed to pull together a look perfect for a casual Saturday.

Note the bright pink lipstick.  I might look like I am owning it but this is way outside the comfort zone.  Considering my next purchase is going to be  poppy red pants I’d better get comfy with bright colours real fast.
