I’ve been embracing the leather leggings that are out in full force.  If you follow me on Pinterest (which I think maybe all of two of you do), you’ve probably noticed I’ve been devouring all the leather legging pics I can as outfit inspiration.

See?  HEREHERE, HERE and HERE

I paired mine with a sheer georgette white button-up blouse, a black boyfriend blazer, black booties, and a long silver necklace…appropriate for a friday of work then dinner with the BF after.

Real Talk: Hipsters

Humans have a tendency to categorise everything. From words in the dictionary to types of photo files, so inevitably, we categorise ourselves. This should come as no shock to you. In the sixties there were the mods and rockers, in the seventies there were punks and in the early beginnings of the twenty first century the emos and scene kids began to delve out of the shadows. Hipsters, however, have been ever-present since the nineteen forties with their ability to be on trend and in the know.

I love lush! Having got a few bits and pieces for my birthday, I have become more obsessed with the whole concept. Reading into the brands ethics and how they make the products it seems so personal; getting a little sticker on each product saying who wrapped it makes it more individual.  I love it when you get a box of things that you wouldn’t necessarily buy in the store through choice. I’m quite safe and I always go for the same products … the bubble bar, because who doesn’t want bubbles in the bath! The facemasks, because they just smell so good and feel amazing when you wash the off. And of course the dream cream! It was a present for Christmas and I have already repurchased it. It’s been the go to moisturizer for January and beginning of February.

Here is the box of products I received in the box, from Bubble bars to creams and soaps.

Fashion Master Class // How to wear white skinny jeans

By: Tash

White skinny jeans are one of the fashion staples of the season. You see them everywhere, from Stockholm to Milan, to Shanghai to New York. White jeans are the latest closet staples and we have discovered that they are effortlessly chic, no matter what the occasion. With the rules of fashion changing on a minute-to-minute basis, we think white denim can serve as your blank canvas all year round.

Metallic sneakers

Wear white jeans with metallic sneakers. Yes, they actually work together. The metallic finish really compliments the plain crisp colour of the jeans.

White On White

Pair up your skinnies with a textured knit like this model. Adding a different texture to your outfit looks chic and oh so sophisticated. Skip the jewelry and stick with simple black sunnies. The white on white trend is seriously rocking the streets right now.

Grey on white 

If the white on white trend is not your forte, opt for another classic yet minimal look with a light washed grey sweater. The grey and white combo is playing it safe, but it never fails to please. 

Tartan

Victoria’s secret angel and supermodel, Candice Swanepoel, is seriously nailing the white skinny jeans trend! Pairing her skinnies with a simple and plain white tee looks great, but adding that final touch of tartan around her waist looks simply and utterly like perfection. So, whats the lesson? If your wearing a white top with white jeans, break up the monochromatic ensemble with a pop of tartan tied around the waist. It’s an understated, but effortlessly chic outfit in one.

Oversized shirt

For a relaxed, chic and modern feel, get an oversized boyfriend shirt, tuck it in and voila. You will look like a street style queen! 

Off duty model look

If you’re a fan of relaxed, edgy and grunge inspired outfits, try wearing your white skinnies with rips. Ripped jeans look less polished but more relaxed and carefree, It’s an ‘I don’t care’ look. It adds a lot more character as well! Pair your skinnies with a slouchy white tee, a leather or khaki jacket, some killer boots and a shoulder bag. If you really want more grunge to the look, add a cool beanie like this one. 

Denim shirt

Theres something so drool-worthy about a denim and white colour combo. A light denim blue and white jeans are a match made in heaven! 

Stripes

Pair your jeans with stripes. Stripes can never do no wrong, so why not try it? Australia’s favourite angel; Miranda Kerr looks AMAZING in this heavenly summer outfit. *Sigh* Is there ever a time when she has a wardrobe malfunction? I guess not. The denim tied around her waist makes her look all the more ‘debonair” than she already is.
