New Season Picks to Freshen Up Your Wardrobe

15 September 2017

Brought to you by Shopbop

I’m a little embarrassed to say this, because it could come out wrong.

I made this wish list mindful of my age haha!

What I mean is, I’m someone who’s in the “mid-thirty approaching forty age group”. In terms of personal style… I’m already happy, confident and bordering on not-giving-a-shit about what others think. I already have lots of basics, classics and investment pieces. I do tend to get stuck in a rut, so I’m just looking for a little style update for the new season, but not too much.

Haha that all sounds very sensible and grown up right?!?

I don’t believe that once you hit a certain age, that you have to dress a certain way.

It’s all about what you feel comfortable in!

Anyway, I just want to add a few cool things to my wardrobe and freshen it up a bit. I’m eyeing up these things :

Shopbop New Season Picks

Etre Cecile Touche T-Shirt – Graphic tees are everywhere, but I’m so picky with the kind of print or wording on them. I don’t believe in band or city t-shirts. I don’t really like statements like “Choose Happiness”, or “Groovy”, or “Need Coffee” haha. I like this black and white script one though – TOUCHÉ!!

Marni Circle Sphere Earrings – I love the mixed metals in these earrings. They are not too girly. Not too statement. They are modern, subtle but still look a bit special.

Cult Gaia Acrylic Ark Bag – Inspired by retro Japanese bamboo picnic bags, designer Jasmin Larian created Cult Gaia handbags focusing on good design, ethical manufacturing and sustainability. I love the design and look of it!!

Shopbop New Season Picks

Amanda Uprichard Crawford Top – Bright red is a great colour for spring. This top shows a bit of skin, but not too much. Looks modern and polished. Can wear it for day time or night. Very versatile!

KENZO Mini Tiger Earrings – Love these Kenzo tiger studs. I’m so bored of my pearls and diamond studs!

Tibi Lia Slingback Pumps – You may as well get used to seeing these now. Sling-back kitten heels are back in fashion. And just like the slides, get a good pair that will feel amazing and last you a few years.

Shopbop New Season Picks

KENZO Tiger Classic T Shirt – Did I mention I really like the Kenzo tiger graphic? A cool, coloured graphic tee is even harder to find than a black and white graphic tee.

Furla Red Cross Body Bag – I’ve learned how to head out the door with less. Phone, keys, credit card, lip balm. It feels so liberating to NOT carry all my heavy crap around! Now I want to celebrate with a new small bag haha!

PUMA Clyde Core Leather Sneakers – I’m so bored of wearing my black and white Nike sneakers around the place. I feel like I’m trying too hard to look like a teenager (because that’s all my teenagers wear on their feet these days!). I’d like some stylish leather sneakers please.

Shopbop New Season Picks

Style Mafia Helene Top – Go the ruffle and the girly pleats! Love this top! It’s on the “more affordable” scale.

Gucci Lightness Square Sunglasses – Bold, white sunglasses are back in. I don’t like my sunglasses too chunky, so these are a really nice look instead. Can’t go wrong with Gucci.

Chiara Ferragni Star Sandals – And because I love a good statement shoe… I’ll say YES to stars, glitter, gold and silver any day. These strike the perfect balance of fun + bold without going over the top :)

Enjoy your weekend!
