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.

Style Sessions – Wearing Color Block and My Fave Leather Pencil Skirt

I love wearing color block and classic monochrome pieces, there’s something eternally chic about it. For years, I’ve also lived in this black leather pencil skirt – whether it’s fall, winter or spring, a leather pencil skirt really ups the ante and is an essential for every girl…

Style Sessions – The Perfect Black Leather Pencil Skirt with Floral

There are few things in fashion I love more than a black leather pencil skirt and floral prints. I’m delighted to share with you a fall outfit I styled and absolutely adore – there’s just something about this leather skirt that I can’t get enough of and this gorgeous floral top has been on high rotation for a few seasons now too! Combine them together and well, I think the result is fab…

Do you love wearing floral prints too? My favorite is floral prints on a black background. The contrast of feminine florals and the tough touch of black makes for a perfect combination.

Style Sessions: The (Faux) Fur Vest Every Girl Needs

I wanted to share a few of my fall fashion favorites… and number one is a gorgeous (faux) fur vest. Style with a classic blue stripe shirt (this Rails Aly Stripe Shirt is perfect), fab lace up heels (on sale, just $59) and pair of distressed skinny jeans, these AG The Legging Jeans are the best (and currently on major sale!). Combined, they all make a perfectly relaxed weekend outfit that can take you from day to night.

What do you think of this combination? I love wearing this fur vest over a stripe button up, particularly in these neutral tones… you can never go wrong with blue and tan. I always find something so effortless about the combo.

Are you into fur this fall? What’s the number one piece you’re looking forward to wearing as the temperature drops?
