Last week I travelled to the sunny Gold Coast for work-related affairs, and essentially brought half of my summer wardrobe with me. I took this as an opportunity, considering I haven’t had much of a chance to air them out since Melbourne’s summer refused to happen. Happily, it was warm enough to put my clothes into good use, and with my last glimpse of sunshine I decided to throw in some colour into my outfits.
So I know that this is one of the most mainstream looks out (definitely around where I live) with the crop top and pencil skirt, but I like it. And hey, both items were around 70% off so I couldn’t go wrong. It beats the hey-check-out-my-bum-cheeks denim shorts trend, and the pencil skirt instantly implies that there’s some class happening. I matched the outfit with a non-mainstream necklace, which is basically made out of rubber and gives the impression of a tattoo. I cannot for the life of me remember the brand, but I purchased it from a closing-down store for a ridiculously cheap price. Actually now that I think about it, every item being worn in the photos was at least 50% off.
Friends, you only need to pay full price if it is really necessary.
Unique, statement necklaces are a fantastic investment-I have a few-specifically for when you need to spice up a plain outfit. Never underestimate the power of jewellery, because although the phrase ‘too much is never enough’ does not apply, too little can be boring and say ‘meh’. I have some fairly outrageous ones, but they are a delightful and simple addition to a plain black dress or jeans and shirt combination.
