Fine Lines

Bonds striped jersey tee, Bonds sweatshirt, Nobody boyfriend jeans (similar), Birkenstock Arizonas, Monki Bag, Daniel Wellington Sheffield watch

 For me, weekends are for lounging around, going out for brunch with the girls, soaking in the goodness of not being overly productive, wondering why I didn't do more work on Monday, and wearing comfy clothes. This month I'm guest posting for Bonds, showing how I style fine stripes; this striped tee is in a super soft cotton, which makes me feel like I'm wearing my pyjamas and nothing says leg movement than boyfriend jeans. It's all about the comfort on the weekend.

Watches are an accessory that I wear every day. I wouldn't say I'm the most organised person (although we all try right?), there's just something comforting about  having the time accessible at a glance. Sure, phones are convenient and you can always look at the time on that, but sometimes they'll get lost in your bag amongst all the other 'necessities' and by the time you find it, you'll be a couple minutes late to whatever you'd planned to do.

 This Daniel Wellington watch is a simple black and white design, which makes it easy to wear with everything. If you feel like treating yourself or someone special, take 15% off with the discount code 'kristywu' until the end of September.

Every Week is Fashion Week

With MB fashion week around the corner, River Island Australia has created the #EVERYWEEKISFASHIONWEEK challenge. Since I won't be flying up to Sydney this year, I've created two outfits of some outfits that I would wear.

Something more dressy

The first outfit I'd wear would include a leather skirt of some sort; it's a piece of clothing that goes with anything, literally, and if you're stuck on what to wear, you can plan your outfit around the skirt and the chances are, are that you'll look like you have a clue as to what you're doing. Asides from the warmth factor, I'd also probably wear a grey oversized coat to contrast against all the blackness of the outfit and the wool looks good against leather. If you can't walk long distances in heels (like me), heeled boots are always a good option and there are so many different styles and heel heights, you're bound to find a pair that you can walk in.


Something more casual:

 This outfit is more of a casual look, but I've paired it with a pair of statement heels to make it more appropriate for fashion week and less like something you'd wear to uni or on Sundays lounging around at home. If you don't like wearing a lot of bling, a hat is an accessory I always tend to gravitate towards, especially when you feel like you're underdressed (it also does a brilliant job at concealing 3rd day hair). The rule of thumb that I go by is that the larger the brim of the hat, the more polished you'll look overall.

Maxi Skirts

Klarra mesh jumper, Klarra skirt, Sol Sana 'Tally' sandal, Karl Lagerfeld watch

I'm not one to wear a lot of short skirts when I got out as I'll constantly be readjusting my skirt all night, so this maxi skirt makes me feel feminine and the slit at the back keeps things interesting as well as enabling me to walk without looking like a penguin.

Dricoper Denim

Dricoper ripped jeans, Country Road  Alek oxford, ASOS cami (similar), 
Staple the Label shirt, Larsson & Jennings watch

Dricoper (pronounced Dry-Cope-Ris an Australian brand with over 20 years experience in the denim industry; their brand is youthful and playful, abiding by the slogan 'Top notch denim for guys and girls'. The team at Dricoper produce a range of clean cut wardrobe essentials in strong, premium fabrics and their jeans have a vintage feel (minus the whole having someone actually wearing the jeans out before you).

Let's be honest, jeans are one of the hardest articles of clothing to buy; there may be thousands of different colours/washes/cuts/fits in the market that you can choose from, but each pair fits your body differently, so when I stumble across a pair that fits comfortably (that doesn't contain more than 50% elastane) I tend to cling on on to it and wear it over and over again.

 Everyone needs a pair of well fitting jeans, so until the end of September, you can spoil yourself with 15% off Dricoper's entire denim collection with the code 'KRISTYW'

Stripe Series: Trousers

For as long as I remember, I don't think I've worn/owned a pair of striped trousers because I remember seeing in a magazine somewhere that vertical stripes were unflattering and that you should steer clear unless you have Alexa Chung's legs or if you're dressing up as Beetlejuice for halloween. For me, I've found that stripes worn on the bottom are wearable as long as they're loose fitted otherwise the stripes may distort with your body (which isn't all that flattering) and also if they're more of a pinstripe pattern.

Spring Knits

Bonds Summer knit, Boohoo slider sandal, Larsson & Jennings 'Lader' watch, Karen Walker Number One sunglasses, Shashi Sonia Bracelet

Asides from the few rainy days, Spring has been pretty good so far (thank goodness). This morning I went out for lunch with my parents and the sun was out, the streets were filled with people and everyone looked genuinely happy; I guess good feelings really are infectious.  I decided to wear a lightweight knit with a pair of sheer trousers that I bought when I was on holidays a year or two ago and it has a stripe along the side, which contrasts nicely against all the whiteness.

If you haven't noticed from the Instagram photos of bloggers and celebrities, September is the month of New York fashion week as well as Melbourne's very own Spring fashion week and since I'm not going to NYFW (a girl can dream), I'll have to experience it vicariously. If I were going, this outfit is close to something that I would wear.
