It’s hard to play with fashion or do anything exciting with accessories in January because it’s just too darn HOT.
Fortunately, everybody’s in that holiday frame of mind, which means even if you did try to style things up, you’d look overdone anyway ! (You know me – it’s all about fashion from the real world!)
This January I found simple summer frocks were just the thing to keep this mama looking just as hot as the weather LOL … but feeling oh-so-cool and breezy.
I got the dress above at Jay Jay’s last Summer, but recently had it cut down from a maxi to a much more manageable length. And, as I suspected, I’ve been getting a lot more wear out of it!
This simple trapeze frock with braided straps came from Katies early in the Summer. It’s perfect for throwing on over a swimsuit. I’m also wearing a floral bikini from Kmart (sorry not quite ready to show pics of me wearing THAT just yet!), and a hat from Big W which the hubster gave me for my birthday earlier in the month .
I do love me a floral print; this maxi dress came from Valley Girl about 6 months ago. The shoes were just $7.50 at Crossroads, and the necklace was a birthday gift from Mr 20 .
Back to Work
However it wasn’t all fun, games and holidays – here I’m dressed and ready to head into the office in a simple black skirt, worn with a gorgeous cobalt blue top from Katies, necklace from Kmart, and the $7.50 Crossroads shoes again.
Fashion from the Real World
I share style pics and so much more over on my Instagram – I’d love it if you followed me there.
And, you may have noticed, I like to use the hashtag #fashionfromtherealworld – if that sounds like your kind of style too, I’d love it if you used it too on your Instagram style pics so I can pop by and visit – let’s inspire each other to stay stylish, but keep it real!
