The next focus in my 'Building You Wardrobe' series is on shoes! In previous posts I have covered the basics and essentials that I believe are needed when building your wardrobe. Remember that everyone's style is different, and some of the shoes I mention here may not be something you wear often or at all.
Sneakers are, hands down, my 'go to' shoes. Whether it be Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring, sneakers can be styled with jeans, skirts, shorts and dresses. They come in so many different colours there'd always be a pair to match your outfit, however I recommend your first pair to be either black or white since they are the easiest colours to match with outfits.
Boots are another type of shoe that are very versatile and come in many different styles. They could be ankle boots, cut out boots, combat boots, riding boots or over-the-knee boots. I find that I wear boots almost as much as I wear sneakers, whether that be in Summer or Winter.
Here's how I would style a pair of lace up boots:
This next type of shoe may not be for everyone because I'm sure that there are many of you out there who prefer not to wear anything with a heel, however I find that having a pair of simple, black pumps in my wardrobe can come in handy when I want to dress up my outfit or am going out to a formal event. They are in a way, essential to have, but this does not mean you have to wear them frequently!

Flats are great to have in your wardrobe since they can either be dressed up or down. Flats come in a massive range of styles and colours, and are best worn with a pair of skinny jeans or a skirt.
The Coachella Music and Arts Festival, more widely known as 'Coachella' wrapped up a few weeks ago and everyone wants to know who had the best performances and, of course, what was everyone wearing? Here are some of my favourite looks:
Some common trends this year have been tribal prints, kimonos, flower crowns, fringes, crochet, maxi skirts/dresses and off-the-shoulder tops. Here are some examples of how you could style these trends:
Need some last minute gift ideas for a Mother's Day gift to your mum? Well you've come to the right place!
When you think about all the wonderful things your mum has done for you over the years, you want to make sure that she knows that you appreciate it. Even a simple gift can mean so much because we all know that its the thought that counts!
Some great gift ideas include some scented candles, a new watch, or some perfume. It also wouldn't hurt to bake some cupcakes, which is what I'm going to be doing for my mum, as well as the usual breakfast in bed.
Hope this post has helped you think of some last minute gift ideas for your mum!
Since Virgin Australia's Melbourne Fashion Festival is just around the corner, Melbourne is gearing up for a full on week of fashion ahead. The week is packed full of runway shows, beauty workshops and other exciting events.
I am lucky enough to be attending one of the runways shows this year on the 21st of March. The show is presented by Harper's BAZAAR and include designers such as Alex Perry, Sass & Bide and Ellery.
To see pictures and a complete update on the show, look out for new posts on my blog and follow my Instagram.
A recent trend that I've noticed among fashion bloggers is the pastel or powder blue trend. Personally, I love the colour! It's absolutely gorgeous. Ever since I saw the Zara Mini City Bag and Danielle Bernstein in the powder blue Guiseppe Zanotti pumps, I couldn't help but fall in love with this fashion trend.
When it comes to styling this colour, I prefer to pair it with other neutral colours such as black, white, beige or grey. That way, the powder blue piece will be the focus of your outfit without looking like you overdoing it. Powder blue is quite an elegant colour and neutral colours seem to complement them very well.
Here are a few items in this colour as well as how to style them:
Top: Cotton On, Shorts: Paper-Scissors, Shoes: Topshop, Bag: Sportsgirl
I personally love the look of laser cut. The detail it adds to an item of clothing, whether that be skirts, shorts or dresses, definitely adds something rather elegant and chic to your look. I recently purchased these faux leather laser cut shorts and here is one way I decided to style them.
