Style Sessions: Inside My Shoe Wardrobe – The Shoes Every Girl Needs

I’m taking you inside my shoe wardrobe, these are the shoes every girl needs ! We all have favorites and these are some of mine – I love these lace up heels, these ankle booties and these perfect black patent heels. They are versatile and work beautifully with so many outfits. Importantly, they are also timeless classics that will never go out of style. One of my favorite places to shop for shoes (and everything else) is Century21, they have the most gorgeous designer fashion at major sale prices.

The good news is, quite a few are currently on sale! I’ve actually been getting ‘back-up’ pairs while they’re on sale.  My mum always taght me, when you find a pair of fabulous shoes that are comfy and cute, you have to stock up!

Do you feel the same way? Have you ever got back-up pairs of your favorite shoes before? I’d love to hear what they were, or the kind of shoes you would love to get a few pairs of!

Style Sessions – The Feminine Winter Coat Every Girl Needs

There’s something so beautiful about wearing light colors and I love this feminine winter coat. It’s a fabulous change from all the dark hues normally worn in cooler months. I’ve had it for a few years now and always look forward to pulling it out for winter weather, it’s also been a favorite of mine to wear during New York Fashion Week in February. The key to styling a light feminine winter coat is wearing complementary neutral tones alongside it, think cream sweaters and scarves – they’re perfect!

Balance the lighter shade with darker bottom half, this also has a beautifully slimming effect. One of my favorite outfits is wearing this wool coat with printed pants, the simplicity of the coat looks fabulous mixed with prints. I hope you like this look as much as I love wearing it…

Tell me friends, are you into light coats or darker colors? I’ve wondered what other people prefer, I know darker shades are so easy and require less dry cleaning… but a cream feminine winter coat is just so soft and pretty!

Style Sessions – Polished Military Style For Every Girl

One of my favorite looks is military style. I won’t even call it a trend, it’s a classic vibe that has been around for years and certainly isn’t going anywhere. I’ve been going to New York Fashion Week twice a year for a few years now and without fail, EVERY season military green is one of the most popular colors. From military style jackets, to military green shirts and even cute military inspired boots… it’s the best color and so easy to style with your existing wardrobe.

You’re all familiar with my love (ok, perhaps it’s more of an addiction) to chambray shirts, but lately I’ve been noticing more military green creeping into my closet. I personally love wearing mine with black jeans, distressed jeans and dark denim skinnies. It is also easy to wear with denim shorts and black shorts too. You know how black-on-black is often a safe look for any event? Well, I think black and military green is an amazing combination and perfect way to inject a little color, while still keeping the vibe very cool girl chic.

I recently found these amazing Derek Lam black patent point flats on sale at Century 21 (my go-to for designer brand massively reduced, seriously guys – if you don’t already shop there, check it out!). I love the super polished look they give to all my outfits… point toe flats are another trend that was HUGE at Fashion Week in September and I don’t think there’s any sign of it slowing down.

I’d love to hear what you think, do you like military style? How do you wear it? I love military green jeans too – they look amazing with black, white or grey shirts and tees.

Style Sessions: The Colored Wool Coat EVERY Girl Needs

I hope you all enjoyed the most wonderful Christmas! I can’t believe it’s over already… it’s my absolute favorite time of year. There’s just something so magical about it! Now it’s all about New Years Eve – what do you have planned? We’re spending a fun evening with friends at a beach house, just a low key dinner and some champs, of course.

I wanted to flash back to one of my favorite winter outfits today, it’s one of my most pinned looks and never goes out of style. I adore wearing this colored wool coat – it makes such a nice change from black, but is still a classic hue that is easy to match with staple colors and a little more fun that all-black head to toe. This Michael Kors coat is also 100% wool, so it’s incredibly warm and beautiful to wear. I really believe it’s worth investing in a quality wool coat and remember, the higher the wool or cashmere content, the warmer it will be.

I’d love to know, do you wear colored wool coats too? Or prefer to stick with classic black?

Style Sessions: Exciting News – I’m Engaged! Plus My New Chanel Handbag and Steve Madden Booties

I have three fabulous things to share with you today… the biggest and best news is, I’m engaged! It happened on my birthday two weeks ago and we’ve just been enjoying this time ourselves before announcing it to everyone. We were away for the weekend on a family cruise my parents organised and as I was sitting on the balcony soaking in the views before breakfast, Chris gave me a gorgeous big present box. I suspected inside was a perfume I really wanted (it was, Rose 31 from Le Labo is amazing)… as I unwrapped the ribbon and opened the box, sitting on top was the stunning ring. As I was frozen in a little moment of surprise, Chris got down on one knee… and I said yes! It was a perfect moment for the two of us, followed by a beautiful breakfast with my Mum and Dad, Grandma and Aunt.

I’m also excited to share with you that we’ve set the date – Sunday 5th March 2017. We didn’t want to wait forever to get married, so just decided to plan it for three months away… and no, it’s not a shotgun wedding. Stay tuned for lots of fun wedding talk! I’m in the midst of bridal dresses, bridesmaids dresses, invitations, decor… it’s all been fun! I’ll be sharing lots of gorgeous finds, so be sure to connect with me on Pinterest. Are any of you getting married soon too? Leave a comment below, I’d love to know!

Also… as a very special “gift to self”, I welcomed this beautiful Chanel handbag as a momento of the journey I’ve had with Style Elixir. If you told me three years ago that I would have experienced lots of amazing travel, been featured in StyleWatch magazine, done NYFW twice every year, or met so many amazing friends from all over the world… I wouldn’t have believed you! I wanted to get just one incredibly special piece to mark this time in my life and a Chanel seemed perfect. I had been stalking the What Goes Around Comes Around store at Shopbop for ages to find the perfect one!

I’ve also been love love loving these Steve Madden Anella Booties, they’re the ultimate color for winter and wonderfully comfy. They’ve quickly become my go-to’s for every day! The best thing is, come spring you can wear them with lighter jeans and skirts too – I love booties that are super versatile. Have you seen their fab collection of tall boots and gorgeous booties? Steve Madden always have on-trend pieces at affordable prices (hello OTK boots that won’t break the bank!), I always check out their range when I’m looking for shoes and usually find exactly what I’m after.

I hope you like this classic look, every piece transcends seasons and are definitely staples every girl’s wardrobe needs…

Style Sessions – 3 Timeless Fashion Pieces Every Woman Needs

I have to say, it’s been a great week so far. You know how you just have some weeks that go right and good things happen – it’s been one of those! I’m not even talking huge things… just little things, but I think it’s wonderful to recognize and appreciate those. I adore the quote that reads, “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things”. I’d love to know, what’s one thing that’s happened to you this week that made you happy?

When it comes to fashion, I’m really big on ensuring the pieces I buy aren’t going to be out of style in a season. Today, I wanted to share 3 timeless fashion pieces every woman needs and flashback to a few outfits I’ve worn in past seasons which highlight how timeless these pieces are! I am STILL wearing them on the regular now… for example, a statement blazer – I’ve had the one below for a few years and every time I wear it, get compliments and questions about where it’s from. The trends I’ve chosen to highlight are those I believe transcend seasons and will look polished, sophisticated and stylish on almost everyone – not just for now, but also for years to come…

I’d love to hear from YOU. What is one piece you adore and wear season after season?

3 Timeless Fashion Pieces Every Woman Needs…

Beauty: Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer (the best, my makeup lasts ALL day)    |    Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (#3N1 – holy grail of foundations)    |    Beauty Blender Makeup Applicator Sponge    |    Concealer (NC30)    |    bareMinerals Mineral Veil Powder (Illuminating)    |    Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer in Medium    |    Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Blaze    |    Estee Lauder Mascara (the best!)    |    Maison Margiela Replica Perfume in Beach Walk    |    OPI Nail Polish in ‘Cute and Small’ (it’s the PERFECT soft pink)    |    YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in #13 Le Orange

This is one wardrobe staple I am completely addicted to. I have a real thing for statement blazers, because I adore how you can easily throw one on and take your look from casual, to perfectly polished in a second. They are beyond versatile and work with almost anything – I wear mine with everything including jeans, shorts and dresses!

I am such a girly girl, so when all this military style was coming into fashion, I wasn’t sure how I could wear it. But I think the key to fabulous style isn’t following a trend explicitly, it’s about learning what works for you and putting your own stamp on it! I glammed up a chic army green blouse with my favorite leopard print belt and a statement necklace. Of course, a requisite pop of red lipstick (color #13 Le Orange) completes the outfit.

I think we all have those extra special pieces in our wardrobe. For me, it’s this leather jacket! I bought it a few winters ago and couldn’t wait to bring it out again this year. The leather is buttery soft and I’ve never had a jacket this warm. After my experience, I became somewhat obsessed with leather jackets and bought a second one. I believe they are so timeless and although not cheap, a quality piece with a simple, classic cut is absolutely worth investing in.
