Known as a colour that is ‘hard to pull off’, it seems ironic that khaki was originally designed to blend into the crowd. Add a sharp belted dress, a patterned silk scarf and a vintage leather bag for a look that says anything but wallflower.

At one time, khaki would have been the last colour that sprang to mind when shopping for a new look. As a matter of fact, I think until recently I hadn’t work khaki since I reenacted Destiny’s Child with my friends at the school disco, khaki hot pants and all. Classy girl.
Although cargo will NEVER return to my wishlist, khaki is totally my colour-of-the-moment. There is something so earthy, yet warm about the tone that makes it so effortless to style. In other words, whether I want to chuck on my new pointy heels and a sparkly necklace, or just throw on a denim jacket and some boots, this dress has got me covered.
And it was a bargain and a half at a mere $35. After finding this belted dress so flattering (hello waist), I’m currently on the hunt like a hungry lion for more cute shirt dresses. Watch this space and I’ll
try to watch my wallet.
Don’t you just love finding a piece that you’ve had since you were in nappies and revealing all over again how totally awesome it is? That was the case with this Accessorize silk scarf, which oozes 70s vibes! I must have bought it about 6 years ago, so rediscovering it almost felt like I was going shopping (almost…)
My regular readers will know my soft spot for quirky accessories, which I guess comes hand in hand with working for a fashion jewellery company. These earrings are amazing, as the little ‘twig’ (flower?) actually goes on behind your ear lobe. Riveting, scientific stuff.
