Everyday work wear

image source: tumblr, pinterest & wethepeoplestyle Given that my Pinterest boards suggest an inclination toward a more gamine style of dress, it never quite seems to translate in day to day life. Rather, I find myself in cashmere sweaters and a line skirts, a pair of pointed toe heels or a quirky flat, and nine […]

Winter wardrobe update

by jamie-lee on June 4, 2014, 3 comments

all images sourced from Pinterest The cold throes of winter are upon us, which really only means one thing: more nights spent at home watching re-runs of Seinfeld while sipping on piping hot mugs of hot chocolate. Not a bad thought though, is it? All these frosty mornings (making it all the more difficult to […]

Recapping the 30×30 wardrobe challenge

by jamie-lee on December 20, 2013, 3 comments

I took on a second 30×30 challenge midway through November with mixed feelings of trepidation and optimism. The silly season and its accompanying sales draw me in every year without fail, as emails announcing 50% off storewide, or 70% off shoes trickle into my inbox.

Topshop black cami, ASOS pleated midi skirt, Windsor Smith sandals, Karen Walker sunglasses, Alexander Wang Marion bag So I’m sitting here, with the rain softly tapping on my window, the whistle of the wind occasionally making its presence known.

Karen Walker tan bleeding rose sweater I’ve been slowly counting down the days until winter will officially be at its end, and with only 7 days left, I couldn’t be more excited for Spring.

Joie ‘Felix’ top, T by Alexander Wang stripe t-shirt, Vince textured v-neck sweater Summer has officially begun in New Zealand, which can only mean one thing: summer wardrobe planning. I continuously seem to gear myself toward a wardrobe with a summer focus, which is odd considering the mostly mild to almost non-existent summers we get […]
