2013 Week 42: My Wednesday Style Collective....

As I'm gradually fitting back into my pre-pregnancy wardrobe I'm also having fun trying out new combinations with recent purchases I've been waiting to fit into. A recent piece is this skirt which has quickly become an easy go to skirt, to slip on and get out the door for kindy run with the kids. I don't know if anyone else is like me, but when I get a new to me piece I like to give it a good run for a week to two playing with different styling combinations, to see if it'll earn it's keep in the wardrobe.

So here is the skirt two ways in the last week although I've worn it with several other combinations in recent weeks, but these are the two outfits I've scored time to get pictures taken. The first combination I'm loving, the second not so much, but that's part of my point, you've got to give things a go sometimes and let it sit with you and how it makes you feel.

I have two style beliefs the first is that green goes with every colour, look at nature the trees and the flowers, green is a match made in heaven with all colours. Ok, so maybe not in some people's opinion, but that's my lunacy and I'm sticking to it. My second held style belief is that animal print also goes with just about everything too. Call me crazy but I think the above combination works, it's in the accessorising that brings it together.

Anyway I have digressed so here is the other combination this week. Looking back at the pictures I don't think this will be a combination I'll repeat. I'm ok with showing off pictures of my perceived fashion fails, I know others aren't, but I am. I think style is such a fluid thing and it's forever changing that it's ok to just give things a try, if they don't workout there;s no harm done, at least you were brave enough to give it a go.

Finally I have a question, do you only blog your best outfit combinations? Is there a fear in blogging the ones that missed the mark in your eyes? We often have a critical eye on ourselves, it's surprising sometimes the outfits people respond most to are ones where you didn't think anyone would make much of a deal about.

Hi there, that's a beautiful skirt and you look lovely in both outfits...it is hard for me to go past leopard tho and the blue beads and bangle are great. You look happy and relaxed! xx

Oh my gosh, that cotton top is the best!

You look smokin hot in that first combo....super stylish. And I really like the second combo. That top is so pretty. I think it works, but the first outfit is my favourite. Something about the belt that really pulls the look together. Xx

I love the first combo! I always look like a fat mole in any pics I take so I have a fear of blogging those. Well, I do blog them sometimes for a larf...

That skirt is gorgeous, well chosen Leisa! I love it with both tops, especially that pretty 70s one! x

The skirt is really pretty; if I had to pick a favourite, I think the tucked-in-plus-belt look is great, it's a sleeker silhouette. I wonder what that cute 70s top would look like with your denim maxi?
I road test clothes all the time - if they don't work after a few tries, they head off elsewhere! I have put less successful outfits in the blog, although some never made it... Sometimes you don't know till you see the photos! Which is why blogging is really helpful for honing your style and your wardrobe. xxxx

Thank you for popping by.

I have another one with crochet detail which I'm sure you'd love.

Aww thanks Hun. I really love the first combo too. I think you're right it's all in the belt bringing it together. X

Oh Hun you always crack me up, but for the record you are so not a fat mole. You're a beautiful woman with a ripping sense of humour. Big love too you. X

I can always count on Leisa we have very similar tastes. She could be my personal shopper and I think I'd be sure to love every piece.

Absolutely agree I love blogging and how it's pushed and transformed by style more and more.
