Blogger Challenge Outfit #1 | 2 outfits for $100 with The Warehouse

 

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.” 

― Pablo Neruda


In our previous post we put together some inspiration about #normcore and how that look can be achieved on a budget with the Garage range at the The Warehouse. Today we are back with Pt 1 of our Spring Blogger Challenge to put together two outfits from the Garage spring collection for $100. 

I had an idea in my mind for what kind of look I wanted to go for, but when I spotted this kaftan/kimono that went out the window. I based the outfit around it with a couple of pieces overlapping with Ellen's outfit to keep it on budget. We both fell in love with these sandals as they finished off our outfit well and are comfier and easier to put on  than most sandals of this style (Velcro is a fantastic invention). Plus they were a bargain at $19 (The Warehouse is where everyone gets a bargain after all haha ;] )

singlet - $15
skirt - $15
kimono - $25
sandles - $19

Stay tuned for PTII with Ellen's outfit (she looks gorgeous frolicking around in the daffodils!)

Spring Trend Alert PT I - Button-up Shirts and #normcore

 

"Fashion is expensive. Style is not. Some of the most stylish girls I know are certainly not the wealthiest."
- Nina Garcia


Spring is rapidly approaching and that means spring fashion is hitting stores now! To get a jump on some spring trends this year we have put together some inspiration around a few key trends with nzgirl and The Warehouse and how you can achieve them without breaking the bank.

A good blouse is a definite wardrobe staple and is a great transition piece for when the weather starts to warm up. This spring style your blouse buttoned up to your neck for a simple and chic look. Keep it crisp and clean in light pastel colours.

The Normcore trend is really taking off this spring. Normcore fashion is all about neutrals and low key fashion. It's all about relaxed jeans and keeping it simple. It's probably one of the easiest to wear trends this season. (There's a vogue article about it here)

Coming later this week are two outfits part of a Blogger Challenge to put together two outfits from the Garage spring collection for $100. We are super excited about the pieces we found so stay tuned for those photos :)

Classics for times of less time...

 

"Fashion is mysterious, as a rule. Why are blue jeans a classic? You just hit on something that happens to be timeless and right."
-Diane von Furstenberg

Sometimes life is busy and you have a day where you don't really want to wear anything fussy, all you need is the classics that you know will get you through the day. This outfit comes from a day where I had a full day of lectures then bloggers club in the evening. So even though it would have been nice to be wearing something trendy. I went with a combo of tried and tested classic pieces that would follow me through the busy day fuss free.


shirt - Gmarket
jeans - Esprit
leather jacket - Just Jeans
shoes - converse
nails - Essie 'Splash of Grenadine'

It was quite windy on this particular afternoon, so taking any outfit photos without the *there's hair in my mouth ew ahh clothes everywhere* face was tricky. In the end there were the acceptable windswept ones above. 


P.S for more ways to style a plaid/flannel shirt this week we made a video about it here :)
