Honestly, I am obsessed with this summer trend......STRIPES. Not only are they adorable and chic, they add that bold and daring element to your look. I recently just bought these pants, ofcos I was concerned I might end up looking like a jailbird but the eclectic part of me had to have em. 
I first spotted nautical vertical striped pants on Elle MacPhearson in the fashion star reality show and since then being hoping to get me a perfect pair. They are really dramatic trousers and definitely make a statement. I was concerned about looking like a jailbird but the eclectic side of to me won over so i had to add it in my closet. 
I always find black and white goes well with bold hues so i went for the red cropped jacket and a bold bronze neck piece.
                        I kept the accessories to a minimal and added a non competing blue woven purse 
I did a black tank and black booties so as not to compete with the stripes, then
a tangerine hair bow

Black and white is one of the biggest 2013 tend and I find myself subconsciously buying lots of it in my closet, so I fully intend to indulge in this trend fully. I came across this stripped maxi in my thrifting endeavours sometime in december and I knew exactly how I wanted to wear it. I believe every girl should have atleast one maxi in their wardrobe especially as a summer staple.Originally the dress was flared so i decided to  alter it a little bit at the bottom half and make it more pencil shaped.I went for the horizontal stripes as they tend to elongate my curves as am quite petite. 
I went for the horizontal stripes as they enhance my curves as am quite petite. A  fitting maxi  is better than a tight hugging maxi as it may look tacky if care is not taken.
I went for a more demure and edgy feeling to dress it, the denim cropped jacket was to give it a more relaxed look. The black ankle brogues are just my favourite go to flatties. Well, most of my friends tend to find them quite ugly but i love the way they can change your look in a snap and i find them to be very stylish, vintagey and unique.
I went for pops of color in styling my hair to bring some ooommmph to the outfit. I did a combo of two scarves, orange with black polka and an electric magenta one. The accessories were minimal, a red and bronze pedant neckpiece and butter yellow loops.
                  The bag is a vintage from my mums 80's closet and am currently in love with these  avatars

Hellllllooooo everyone.....feels like a looong minute since i have blogged, been really held up with the new year but I remembered to take pics for your sake. Well i did braids just the other day, i find them to be very convenient with a busy schedule and can be styled numerous ways. Onto my outfit....finally i got to break in my new babies (louboutins) and am totally in love with them. I find myself inclined to buy pointy toes since yester year, they can go with literally anything.
I got this white military shirt some time in december and could not wait to style it up. I wore the outfit for casual friday, thats why i tucked in the shirt and went with the pointy pumps to bring some seriousness to the outfit. I like it because it has the essence of a basic white shirt and just plain denim jeans
The shirt can be worn the normal way or as a pilot shirt.....i preferred the pilot way. I carried a a tan purse and added color blocked earrings for that pop of color then the avatar sunglasses!
