LAS stylefile: florals in berry…

Autumn is a great time to start layering as the weather starts to cool down. Given that we have been very fortunate to enjoy a warm autumn here in Melbourne, it is still great for wearing the light weight kimonos.

Recently purchased this beautiful three-quarter sleeve bouquet kimono from ASOS, with some BERRY coloured floral print! If you’ve been around the malls, you will see how this colour is now making it in big for the winter collection. It is a beautiful winter colour, although on the darker tone, is still able to give an outfit a little bit of lift and character. If you’re after kimonos, have a look at the whole range on ASOS, lots of variety to choose from.

Here I’ve worn it with a pair of Lee Cooper skinny jeans, from Big W, which I must say for the price paid (under $30.00) is super comfy and super stretchy, which is a win win in my books!

Also worn here is a black tee bought on sale at Sussan (find similar ones here). One of my best buys, as I frantically looked through those sale racks, and when I found my size? I did the happy dance!!

Accessories is a big one for me when dressing. Sometimes I start with the outfit, and then work towards the accessories, but some days it’s backwards. I think of the accessories I want to put on, and then choose an outfit. So today, for some reason, I wanted to wear these berry coloured pumps, bought from Merchant Shoes. And so it was a backwards dressing kinda day!


And to add a little bit of BOHO, I’ve put on this gorgeous necklace with coins hanging off it, which I bought off the sale rack for under $10.00 from Lovisa. Not seeing it online, but find similar from Bohemian Traders, here.

I must say, I absolutely love this colour BERRY! Will definitely be adding more of this colour to my wardrobe!

Do you like this colour? Would you wear it? Or not really your cup of tea….

Would love to hear your thoughts, leave me a comment below 🙂


lifeastyled Stylefile: when the sun shines!

Melbourne has been wet and gloomy for the last five days and today the sun decided to come out! Woopa! So it was time to bring out the colours. It is a very interesting phenomena that when the sun comes out, we find it easy to choose colours, and when it’s gloomy, the brain decides greys, navy’s and blacks are the go to’s! Well my brain at least. What I wore? Given that it was a rather warm day, there was really no need to rug up. Despite my child being in sleeveless, mummy still needed a little more than that thanks to very poor tolerance to cold, so it was a day for my all time fav kimono to come out.

IMG_3449Here I am wearing:

Printed kimono, Mika&Gala – bought from Dishh – last season, but there are some cape’s that are lovely, which  you can view here, black singlet from Zara @$14.95, skinny jeans Dotti (core ankle zip mid blue, @$69.95), earrings from a market in Gold Coast, recent investment ankle boots bonbons @$80.00

Do you get excited when the sun comes out to play? Do you tend to bring out the summery outfits? Or have they all been packed away? MIne is still at the front of the cupboard, given Melbourne’s very temperamental trans-seasonal tendency. What’s your trans-seasonal favourite wear?
