Themes SS10

Hi Guys.
Its only half way through summer here in Australia and so I wanted to highlight the main trends from this season, and how I have interpreted these looks.
Western

Western by Love Julz xx featuring sheer t shirts

I would do this look, by pairing a simple denim shorts and white tee combo with an open plaid shirt. Paid with a gold pendant and gold sandals and I think this has a cute western feel.
Poolside

I think that a romper/playsuit works well as a pool cover up. In white it makes it so fresh. Pairing it with coral accessories like a cardigan for evening and a beautiful necklace gives it a bright pop, and then adding some nautical shoes ties it all together.

I dont wear tailored outfits very often but this is one that i would wear to work. Crisp white skirt and a coral hued blouse looks so summery and fresh. I would pair it with nude heels for work or gold sandals for play.
Sports

Sports by Love Julz xx featuring denim mini skirts

Im not a huge fan of this Sport Luxe trend but I can definately see myself wearing the above ensemble. I have a one piece suit with a white zipper down the middle. I set it against a white mini skirt and my white Toms. Its stylish yet fuctional :)
MIlitary

As you all know if you read this blog, I love the military look. I have military inspired piece in all aspects of my wardrobe (skirt, jacket, pants etc). The above look is very summery and this is definately my favourite look of all the above!

Charlie's Angels

I was on a lunch break one day a few weeks back, and I was watching the old Charlie's Angels reruns on TV. I was just drawn in by the fashion worn in the show. It was amazing. Now that 70's style is back in fashion again, Charlie's Angels is definately the place to get your inspiration from. Below are some of my favourite looks from the show and some peices that I think emulate it.

Clothes Diet Starts

As part of a challenge presented by my church, I have decided to refrain from buying any clothes or accessories for a whole 6 months. And instead, give the amount that I would usually spend on clothes to an organisation. For the last few days I have been stocking up on basics such as leggings and singlets all in preparation for the big Clothes Diet. I am optimistic at this point, as i have an incredible amount of clothing in my wardrobe, half of which I never wear. But I usually buy new clothes each week, so we will see how I am after a couple of weeks. I will post each weekly on my outfit choices for the week to show different ways which I use my current wardrobe to imitate trends that arise in the next 6 months.

Anyway I decided to today, whilst watching TV, that I would put together a couple of collages of my favourite shoes at the moment.

Fashion Icon- Alexa Chung

I noticed that my blog was looking a little wordy, so I thought I should brighten it up with some fashion inspiration- which is the whole point of the blog in the first place.

Below is Alexa Chung who hosted her own TV show on MTV called, Its On With Alexa Chung and is generally known as a fashion icon. Below are some of my favourite looks from her. She never gets too dressed up which I like and it is always on trend.
