Outfit Inspiration - Smart Casual Done Right

Posted by Katie Tweed on

When the dress code says "smart casual" we immediately reach for an outfit like this one, that is comfortable, appropriate for the weather and easily dressed up or down with the change of a shoe.  You can't go wrong with a jean-and-pretty-top combo for a smart casual event. Simply stash a pair of heels and a pair of flats in your car, so that when you scope out the dressing situation inside, you can easily pop back to the car if you need to dress up or down a touch. A red lippie on hand can do the trick as well!...

When you need to wear "a nice top"...

Posted by Katie Tweed on

Whenever I ask my other half what I should wear, he always answers with "jeans and a nice top".  Is that man-speak for "I actually don't give a crap" or does he literally mean that I should wear a nice top...  Whatever the meaning (let's face it, we'll never know how to speak 'man') it's probably handy to have a few nice tops up your sleeve, right?  I've curated a delicious selection of "nice tops" for you to peruse...

How to: Styling Fate's Kadee Knit

Posted by Katie Tweed on

A favourite of Alice's, The Kaydee Knit by Fate is the softest, silk blend knit that you will find.  In the most wonderful caramel colour and a super soft fabric, it is delicious to wear but how to style it? This knit has a relaxed fit, thanks to the batwing sleeves, and looks quite floaty on, which makes it a dream to wear with tailored trousers, pencil skirts and skinny jeans. For a dressed up look, pair it with some well fitting trousers and beautiful heels. For work, this knit looks best worn over a high waisted pencil skirt and...
