White and blue with snakeskin shoes

Jacket : Jet
T-shirt : Woolworths
Necklace : Truworths
Skirt : Truworths
Belt : Legit
Shoes : Edgars

        For the first time in ages I did some ironing and basic outfit planning last night.  This jacket is new to the blog despite that I bought it back in October but this is the first time I'm wearing it.  When we saw it in Jet Courteney insisted that I buy it.  It was really cheap and as with most cheap items, once washed and you get to ironing, you figure out the lack of attention to detail in the garment.  Not all cheap items are so, but this is one of those.  However, since its not an 'investment' item, I can overlook the shortcomings for the wears I will get out of it.

I spent a little time looking through my closet yesterday and must admit that I far too many items I've not yet worn or worn once only.  I really need to wear the things I have before adding anything new.  I may be putting myself on a little retail detail and only buy absolute essentials and basic items.  Since I'm trying to drop a few pounds as well, it may be a good time not to spend either.  

This all brings me to some Style goals for the year of 2013 :

1.  Get more wear out what is already in my closet by mixing and matching before simply    
     adding and wear what I have not yet worn.
2.  Purchase essentials and basics only if necessary (I think replacing my snakeskin shoes is a
3.  Keep working at defining my personal style and keep out the rut and keep trying new

Do you have goals for the year?

Can't forget ... I'm linking up with every fabulous and stylish Patti over at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday


  1. What a gorgeous outfit, Wendy. I love the colors, the white dress and the perfect shoes and belt. You look divine.

  2. That shade of blue is lovely. Love it with the wide belt and those amazing shoes.

  3. I think you look lovely, Wendy, and I agree with all your style goals for the year, esp: "Keep out of the rut". That's challenging for me! Thanks for sharing your great look with Visible Monday.

  4. I really love your outfit Wendy. I'm a sucker for that light shade of turquoise, and it really pops against the simple white t shirt and skirt. I also have a thing for bangles, and your wrist has some very pretty arm candy. Nice to meet you.

  5. Very nice. Your jacket over the belt makes your waist miniscule! Every element working for you. Good job!

  6. Your white skirt is such a versatile little item ~ looks great each time you've worn it.

  7. What a pretty outfit. The colors are so calming. Reminds me of lazing at a beach looking at the aqua water.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
