GREY SUIT

My version of a grey suit is a little more fun than a boring corporate rendition. I instantly fell for this Bassike skirt with its flounced back hem and in my favourite knee length. It also helps that its super stretchy but with thick and forgiving fabric that hugs our curves but holds you in as well. Something I feel like I need after all the holiday feasting i've been doing!

DENIM AND HEELS

You know its summer when you can get away with wearing your denim shorts out to dinner by simply swapping your flats for heels. Cover up with a three quarter silk shirt or blazer and it wont look like you came straight from the sand to the restaurant.

EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE

There are a few occasions where I desert my black, grey and white rules and pull out a little bit of colour.

A) When i've got a play date with kiddies - children love colour and you want them to love you, so a fun pair of coloured jeans is going to help achieve a smoother transition.
B) Attending a wedding. I feel weird about wearing black, you cant wear white and so it just leaves grey. I've never had to cull my wardrobe options so quickly! Meaning I've had to invest in a few more colourful cocktail dresses for these now almost regular events.
C) Holiday season. Its hard to resist getting into the spirit and donning a little red.

So since it is one of the above please shield your eyes for a moment and excuse me while I get all festive in what you may believe for a moment is one of those $2 canvas bags, but is actually in fact a cute summer dress. Fooled you!
