The Look: The Happy Blues

The blues: What comes to mind is either some cheesy jazz music that our nana's rocked out to or that not so nice feeling that strikes us in hard times. The colour blue has anything but negative connotations. Endless summers and rolling oceans; a sense of cool and an air of alleviation. Give me a blue pin-stripe jumpsuit and a sparkly azure necklace and I'm ready to seize the day.


Playsuit: Cotton On
Heels: Famous Footwear (Similar)
Hat: Factorie (Similar)
Bag: Dress Link (Similar)

There's something pretty magical about a statement necklace. It's like some sort of fairy godmother in an accessory: a once average outfit gets **poofed** into something elegant, quirky and feminine. And this is exactly what this crystal mixed blue piece from 'Happiness Boutique' did to my outfit. After being approached by these fashion jewellery fairy godmothers, I decided to choose this mesmerizing blue sky statement necklace that shimmers in dazzling shades of navy, azure and white. Cinderella thanks you!

There's something about this pinstripe jumpsuit that makes me feel like a real 'lady'. Quite surprising, considering on first glance it sort of looks like something you'd wear to bed. I injected some nonchalent boho vibes with this white fringe bag, and topped off the nautical look with my favorite nude hat. 

Also, if you thought the whole 'nude heels elongate legs' kaboodle is just an old wives tale, I ensure you it's not. My stubby pins have seriously been transformed by these nude babies. All hail the power of the high heel!

  6. Raaacchhheeellll, your posts just keep on getting better and better! :) This playsuit is so delicate and feminine, it's so unlike anything else I've seen this summer and now I desperately want to add it to my wardrobe! Your styling is beautiful and I love the slightly darker, moodier lighting in this post!
