just add a frill

just add a frill…

Madison Square

Don’t you love it when you come across a beautiful item of clothing so different; you can picture yourself in it with at least four pieces you own?!

That is exactly how I felt when I laid my eyes on this white jumper. I was scrolling through Instagram and came across the jumper from Labels and Love

The arms had great detail and I loved the big over-sized look for something to snuggle into for winter. Plus it was different and I love not been a cookie cutter and trying something a little different. I bet this jumper flies out the door as it is so pretty!

Life has been getting really crazy of late, but in a really good way as I develop Geelong Fashionista and get organised for this upcoming fashion parade. It’s going to be so much fun! I love showcasing the incredible Geelong talent we have and I’m so excited to be showcasing this in the parade, while been empowered and working with the incredible ladies at Geelong Women in Business.  Make sure you keep the day free and come to the Geelong Small Business Expo. Geelong Creative’s are there, an amazing kids corner, local Geelong businesses plus Fashion! It’s everything I love!

I’m on snap chat if anyone wants to follow along my daily fun… gfashionista is the username!

warm and cosy

Warm and Cosy

How cold has the weather been!? If you live in Geelong/Melbourne or anywhere in Victoria for that matter I’m sure you will all agree.

I have tried my hardest to stay extra warm and cosy these past couple of days and loving a good knit and scarf combo to do exactly that. I find if the top part of me is warm I can get away with a little skin shown on the ankles (and legs in this case!)

My wardrobe of late has involved five colours on rotation; black, white, grey, navy and pink.  I love the way they all look either alone or combined which has helped me with a really good winter wardrobe. I’ve tried really hard to create a wardrobe that can easily adapt itself from “mum” to “fun” plus  combine to make lots and lots of looks.
I’ve had a massive wardrobe clean out and getting rid of so many clothes. I’m in the process of selling as some have barely been worn but I figure some things I don’t need and anything to make me choosing an outfit in the morning easier.

That brings me to something really exciting I’m working on. I’ve met an incredible group of ladies through Geelong Women in Business and working with them to create a fashion parade at the Geelong Small Business Expo. We are looking for everyday models so if you are from Geelong and keen get in touch! I’d love you to be apart of it!

i’m not a shirt person

Good Morning

I’m not a shirt person (normally!) There is something about collars that annoy me. I don’t know what it is but I prefer either collarless or just skip the shirt altogether. Same goes for turtle necks. I don’t do these at all and don’t own any. They make me feel trapped or something, yet I love a good scarf.

I do own a chambray shirt and on this particular day decided to wear it and try out preppy style. I’ve seen a few people out and about of late with variations of this style and thought I’d put my own stamp and twist on the style, making it more “Kirsty”.

I love the way this outfit worked out and think maybe I should be a shirt person. Perhaps I should consider buying more and working them in with my outfits, this worked well and the collar didn’t feel like it was suffocating me. I even added a scarf for some warmth in the morning.

I had fun taking these photos and started dancing around which Andrew captured well! The sun was rising over beautiful Geelong and makes you smile at how lucky we are to live in this place!

What do you think of my style?

weekend stylin’ in khaki

Ocean Grove

I’m very lucky where I live in beautiful Ocean Grove; and one of my favourite things to do on the weekend is going for walks down our main street. This was a simple outfit I had on for the weekend, in a colour I never thought I would have a lot of! As I got dressed I remembered I had a khaki jacket in my wardrobe. I love when you find these pieces; it’s like buying mew clothes!

As we walked down the streets there were no cars, but as soon as we got the camera out they seemed to come in the dozens, not that it takes away from the images and Andrew had fun playing around with the end result.

I have been having a really good explore of local places,  and as we walked down the main street it’s such a mixture of new and old places, some that could do with a good face lift! Maybe that is what makes it so unique and keeps its small town charm.

another winters day

Winter

What a weekend! Sometimes they just seem to be so busy as well as lots of fun!!

After a night out in Melbourne and a bit of a fuzzy head I got Andrew to get some snaps in the beautiful Carlton Gardens. Again a simple winters day outfit is what I’m most happy in on the weekends.

I love beanies to not only add some colour but also for the warmth! This one was a great find whilst in Tokyo last year.

Are you a beanie person? What are your favorites?

simple winter days

Country road jumper

A simple chic outfit is all you need on a wintery long weekend!

I went shopping in my wardrobe and rediscovered my mega high boots making a simple jumper and pants into a much more chic look.

I am in total love with my neon pink clutch, and so it seems everyone else! I keep getting the most wonderful comments from everyone! The thing I like even more about it; a fellow Geelong designer is the mastermind behind these! I highly recommend checking out My Boutique!

What is your favourite winter look?

winter is here

Winter is here and it’s starting to get cold! Not my favorite time of year.. unless there is snow!

I shouldn’t be too sad as I am going to beautiful sunshine in 25 sleeps! I’m heading off to Bali to replenish after my crazy period at work.

I’ve pulled out my jumpers, tights are back out and layering is now the key; especially when the office goes from hot to cold.
