when you thought you had nothing to wear, simply take a previous
outfit, swap out one garment and watch the new look take on a whole new
I show you the power of changing out one piece of clothing. After all,
when an outfit looks truly amazing, you may as well rock it two ways!

That’s enough of the freaking blog time travelling freakiness of the internet, let’s get on to the post! I have to confess that this post was a complete accident. My parents are currently visiting from England and we took a trip to Palm Cove. Me, being the annoying Instagram ho I am, forced an outfit shoot into the post, and, voila: the formal black skirt look (which was going to be todays only look) was born!
However, the 35 degree heat made me pack these cute nautical shorts into my bag and when I changed, I was absolutely loving this look that was never meant to ever appear on The Daily Luxe.
After I’d forced the poor Instagram Husband boyfriend to take more shots, I was amazed at just how different the vibe of this look was from simply swapping out one skirt.
What was once an office-bar outfit mish-mashed with some Adidas Superstars, had now become a nautical Summer look that is perfect for endless hours of beach frolicking and Summer fun.
When changing up a look, choose the piece that is the most formal or most casual and swap them for their absolute opposite. As well as creating a really effortless juxtaposition, this will completely change the air and vibe of the look.
Who knows, that band tee may look just as fantastic with a pleated metallic skirt as it does with your denim shorts? And that blazer will give that boho maxi a whole new vibe!
Anyhow, I’m off to pack for my road trip! I will be heading down the East Coast of Australia to Magnetic Island and The Whitsundays with Jake and my parents. Get ready for an absolute Instagram spam from paradise. And, of course, a travel post coming very soon.
