Here I Go Again...

part 1  

It's been 4 weeks since my last post and I have been woefully neglecting this blog. I could come up with a plethora of reasons. It's the end of the year and the holiday season is upon us, work has been busy and my social life perhaps much too enjoyable to give up - none of those reasons are any more truthful than the fact that I've just be plain old LAZY. It's an affliction I've suffered since a young age, doctors say it's near incurable so all I can do is pick myself up, give myself a stern pep talk and keep going! Now with all that said, lets get on with the first post of December and the arrival of our much anticipated LONG. HOT. AUSSIE . SUMMER.

I'm one of those people that feels the temperature in extremes. One of my friends feels the chill no matter where she is and what season she's experiencing, she's even been known to bring her leather jacket to work on a 30 degree day ("just incase it gets cold in the office"), my husband-to-be is always perfectly warm, even in the dead of winter he'll toss the covers off our bed and insist he's fine going out in just a t-shirt. Perhaps he's helped along by the incredible amount of bodyhair that he posesses. Honestly, the man is like a polar bear - or a 1970s newsreader/pornstar. He could live in the arctic, with Tom Selleck. My problem is I feel the heat as soon as the thermostat hits 25 degrees (celcius) and will force myself to leave the house in more than just a muu muu with ice packs strapped to my body. I've already shown you one of my favourite playsuit looks this season, but realising that I own several of the nifty little style savers, I thought I'd show you some other ways to style a basic playsuit back with different accessories to achieve a different look each time.

This little black playsuit (or LBP) is a super affordable gem I picked up on one of my many Forever 21 online bargain hunts. Part of their capsule collection of amazingly on trend, but affordable pieces, I've worn it at least half a dozen times since it arrived. The way I've styled this outift is my go to, lazy rock n roll glam look. Long layered necklaces, masculine chunky rings and motorcycle boots topped off with a plum wine lipstick and mirrored aviators. It definitely adds a lot of personality to the simple LBP and gets me party ready for a night of rooftop BBQ with friends followed by midnight karaoke, if you're like my friend who gets cold easily just throw on a vintage denim jacket or leather biker jacket to complete this look. Want to tone down your Taylor Momsen? Just add a pastel blazer and change your lippie to a neutral gloss or a lip stain, for a look that's not so heavy handed.

Until next week (I promise!)
