With all the structure and minimalism that is around at the moment, it is hard not to have a moment of weakness for a few detail orientated pieces. The braiding and gold hardware of the cropped top and laced sandals really elevate everything about this look. 

I have a bit of a rule with detail.  I tend to add only one or two eye catching pieces and simplify the rest of the outfit to compliment those.  After all, heavy and excessive amounts of detail in an outfit can lead to a chaotic look that not all mere mortals are able to pull off.

I'm definitely a late contender in the jumpsuit stakes.  My off-duty wear for days spent relaxing more often than not involves denim.  But there are days where comfort counts and a little extra polish is needed.  To stray from the norm I thought a basic draped jumpsuit would hit the mark.  Very carefree to wear and it exudes a kind of togetherness with a limited amount of effort, only needing the odd addition of the essentials to be outfit ready.  

Newly converted to the jumpsuit and minimal accessories combination, I went on a bit of an online shopping frenzy (window shopping that is) and found there is an abundance of choices.  Here are a few that took my fancy and dare I say have made it onto my ever expanding and unrealistic wish list. 










Trans-seasonal outfit

With Melbourne's weather shifting frequently between days of balmy temperatures to being overcast with storms and brisk breezes, it is making it pretty difficult to dress appropriatelyMy go to pieces for this type of trans-seasonal weather are simple and adaptable to suit even the most bi-polar of daysFlats to combat the potentially slippery footpaths, a light tee as a foundation with a tailored blazer for added warmth when needed and of course for style, jeans (swapped for tailored pants for work) and then the finishing staples, a classic bag and sunglasses.
