Starts with Inspiration: Leopard print ankle strap pumps

Leopard print pumps: ankle strap edition

The perfect accessory to elevate an otherwise neutral outfit - the leopard print pump. I'm especially loving the ankle straps as they add a subtle touch of femininity to the edgy look. Or in the case of the Valentino Rockstuds, a whole lot of glam.

Starts with a leather peplum top...

Happy Monday! My best friend is getting married this summer, and while we'll be in formal frocks for the big event, the ever important final girls-night-out this weekend required something edgier.

This panelled faux leather peplum top is the perfect mix of feminine and rocker-chic. Paired with bright blue shoes, and a neon statement necklace it was also functional and comfortable when worn with shorts.

A simple croc-textured clutch completed the look.

However you spent your weekend, I hope you enjoyed times with friends!

Have a great week!

Starts with an A-line dress

Happy Tuesday! Quick post today - what to wear to a sunset cruise in celebration of a friend's engagement? A simple but feminine A-line dress in one of my favourite colours.

Of course, no party is complete without a touch of neon to brighten an otherwise neutral palette. 

Hope you're having a great week so far!
