OOTD catch up: more polka dots than you can shake a stick at

Fourteen days since my last OOTD post I thought I'd do a quick round up of some of what's been happening on the "style" scene. Although I'm using the word style very loosely. Both dresses: TARGET The palm tree print is the same one as seen on the slouchy pants a couple of weeks ago, and ...

OOTD: palm trees on her pants

There are prints and then there are prints. My colourful pineapple dress was a huge move for me, but when I spied a pair of slouchy pants in some kind of palm tree print, in a slightly garish green hue {SO not a colour I like}, I can't even tell you what appealed to me ...

Ten times Kim Kardashian West got it SO right

This post was never going to fall into the Style Icons series, because there have been, as we all know, way too many shockers, but for every ten what-the-f***-was-she-thinking??? looks comes one genuine gem. Even ignoring the older styles before the prerequisite stylist entered the fray, back when most celebs got it wrong more often ...

OOTD: all smocked up.

Take a bloated fat day and combine it with one of the most popular looks of the season, and what you get is comfortable style. You also give yourself free rein to eat too much. I'm talking about the smock. Dress or top, it's fast taking over from cut out shoulders and off shoulder everything. ...

OOTD: off the shoulder. But not.

The off the shoulder trend has been around for a while now, and it's taken me until very recently to get on board. Not because I don't like it but because every time I've tried something on I've just known that wearing anything that even hinted at restricted arm movement would piss me off. I ...

OOTD: Help! I’m addicted to stripes.

Um, yeah, not even joking. I counted, and I have sixteen striped dresses of various styles {maxi, T shirt dress, midi, shift, etc} and eleven striped tops {T's, tanks, knits, etc}. That's A LOT of stripes, and I wonder if I'm even more of a creature of habit than I realise. I mean, I know ...

OOTD: kimono kapers.

Once upon a time I bought myself a kind of lacey fringed black kimono from Kmart, and in my head I could so clearly see how good it would look. It languished in my wardrobe, being tried on a few times but never somehow living up to those visions I had seen in my head. ...

OOTD: all hail the T shirt dress

How have I never owned a T shirt dress before now? I've thought long and hard to be sure, but no, I don't remember ever owning something that is unmistakably just a very long T shirt. And can I just say that, with converse sneakers and maybe a denim jacket if you need it, it's ...

OOTD: Spring has {finally} sprung

Skipping out on half the Winter should mean that I don't need to be so excited now that it's finally starting to warm up ever so slightly. I mean, I'm still sporting a very impressive tan ffs. But the truth is that it was brutally hard going from a heatwave to freezing cold and I ...

OOTD: classic vibes

There are times for pineapple print dresses and then there are times for the classic's that you return to time and again: stripes, denim, and anything black. Lately I've been going back to the classics and rediscovering the things that stand the test of time. Things like: denim: jackets, skirts, & jeans shoes: converse sneakers ...
