I'm not quite sure if it's been writers block that deterred me from posting outfits, or perhaps just the fact that I am not quite comfortable in my summer wardrobe after having indulged in all the sinful delicacies of slow cooked winter food during our recent holiday in Europe. Being quite a gourmand, I succumbed to the temptation of many different flavours during our travels, (and packed a few more than reasonable amount of carbs) hence my current abstinence from creative dressing. Lets face it, being a little slimmer makes dressing up so much more fun. In the meantime a full skirt tends to hide many faults, and does it seem to be the only item of clothing one can find shelter in when a little bulk accumulates around the hips. Spots and stripes would have evoked much criticism a few years ago, but has since become such a hot combination that I would grab any opportunity to mix the two. Slip your feet into a pair of two tone or colour blocked shoes and off you go. The Cobalt Blue is  a energising colour to ad to Black and White stripes. Now I just have to throw away the keys to the chocolate cabinet.

  1. Amazing outfit and cute bag dear! Kisses.

  2. Great outfit! Beautiful handbag and shoes. You look wonderful!

  3. Love the mix of the bold stripe blazer with the print skirt, great sandals and bag as well. Very chic!

  4. You look absolutely smashing, love the stripes and the blue, gorgeous :) xx

  5. I know exactly what you mean about the over-indulging in Europe dear... too tempting. But kilos picked up fast are also kilos burnt fast so don't lose heart. In any case, none of them are showing in this fab outfit so don't worry. Fab combination here, and of course, loving those W Collection shoes and the Michael Kors handbag! Swoon!

  6. Love how everything matches so well Nicolene! Perfect!
