Outfit of the day: My Spirit Animal

So, when I was in Amsterdam last year, enjoying the local customs, a friend of mine informed the group that my spirit animal was a Peacock.

I found this ring at a booth in a sketchy ‘mall’ in London, England. It doesn’t fit well, and it turns my finger green, but I cherish is above all my pieces, mainly because of the story above! The necklace I found later and just had to buy it! I do love matching sets.

Image

Although I generally have a love for all shapeless dresses – my collection is extensive – I would have to say, by far, this is my favourite shapeless dress.

Image

The reason I love this dress is because it’s transparent. So I have the option of wearing a slip, or a body suit. Today I opted for a slip!

Image

And of course my nude wedges. Keeping the colour palette light enough for summer.

Necklace: Le Chateau

I’m hosting a small BBQ tonight so I have lots of work to do before hand. I’ll be sure to post photos tomorrow! (With a special guest?)

Outfit of the day: Flower Power

Hello again! Day two of my clothing posts.

Image

Going for a much more casual look today. As I had lots of running around to do.

Image

These skinny jeans are my favourite summer find! I bought them at Value Village for $7 and when I tried them on they fit like a glove. I could tell that they had a little bit of wear on the inside of the thigh, but as I don’t wear pants allot, I’m sure I’ll have them for years!

Image

While I was over at a friends house dropping things off her neighbour gave me some flowers from his garden. They are so beautiful!

Image

My boyfriend had an odd collection of candies in a bowl at his house, so I took a ring pop and enjoyed a bout of nostalgia. Don’t worry, it didn’t last long. They’re not as easy to eat as I remembered. Ha Ha! (Also, you get a better shot of these lovely pants!)

Denim Top: Wal-Mart

Pants: Value Village

Rings: H&M

Necklace/Bracelets: Le Chateau

Have a great day guys!

Outfit of the day.

Hello ladies and gents,

This here is my outfit of the day. I’m going to do my very best to post all of my fashions on here. So please go easy on me, as I’m new to consistent blogging.

Image

This skirt was hand made by me. It was at one point a set of drapes. It cost me nothing as it was free. Just some TLC and thread.

Image

I quite enjoy this outfit, because it allows me to show off my legs without being obvious. With a body suit and some booty shorts, I can safely walk around the city in almost nothing! Ha ha!

Image

My lovely cream wedges help to add the hight I love! They show off the lovely frilled trim.

Image

And lastly to finish off the look I added some great jewellery and – in regular Katie fashion – a belt!

Body Suit: Avon

Shorts/Hat: Thrifted

Skirt: Home Made

Necklace: Le Chateau

Bracelet: Addition Elle

Rings: H&M

I hope to keep doing this! It makes me happy to dress with purpose every morning/evening before or after work.

– Katie
