Nicholas the label midi skirt, Witchery knit, Hansen and Gretel Clutch, Acne Jensen boots 

We all know a high waisted midi skirt is the perfect match for a crop top.  However  layering a mini dress or longer top over a midi skirt also creates a chic, lean, silhouette.

I’m all about versatility and using different layering ideas to extend the use of items in my wardrobe.

To finish off this outfit, I’m using my new oversized clutch from Hansen and Gretel.  I love  that there is a hand strap across the front, it’s an interesting but also practical addition.

Like a lady- Races tips

Christopher Esber Skirt, Bassike tank, Kobe Husk Heels, Alexander Wang Bag 

With racing season in full swing and the Melbourne Cup looming, I have been inspired to dress like a lady.
I’ve even pulled out a pair of heels for this look- a rare occurrence for me.
Whilst I  have never been an avid race goer, I do adore the elegance and class associated with the event.
Some of my race wear tips:
  • Leave something to the imagination. Skirts should be knee length or below. Body con butt skimming dresses with stripper platforms is not a good look.
  • Balance. here I’ve got a high split skirt, so I have balanced this out with a loose boxy tank. Choose either legs or boobs- not both.
  • Choose heels that you can walk in or always carry a pair of  foldaway ballerines in your bag. There’s nothing worse than the trashy party girl look at the end of the day i.e. those girls that are carrying their heels and walking bare foot.
  • Hats/fascinators- I won’t touch this subject because I’m not well versed in this area. I have however noticed that boater hats and panamas seem to be trending this year. This is a great option as these hats can be worked into your everyday wardrobe.
