Inspire Me Monday…

Inspire me Monday, because sometimes things can be a little bit too blue…

Love tousled curls and this week I am favouring the curls piled into a high ponytail.
I think the high ponytail works best, it adds some sophistication to the look.
Wear it streamlined (perfect for a wedding) or messy (perfect for a casual weekend)!

I’ve completed my first overseas trip, to four cities in the USA.
I was born with the travel bug, and it is just getting worse. I am very keen to travel.
I am very keen to have a map in my house one day that signifies everywhere I have been.
Next overseas trip? England, France… and mayyybe Ireland/Scotland!

I love the studs&spikes trend, for a long while I have lusted after a pair.
My pinterest account will back me up! I found a pair I loved in Las Vegas.
‘Touchdown’ by Chinese Laundry… A friend of mine saw a picture of them on facebook and stated they make him feel like he is in trouble
Possibly my favourite quote.
Reminds me, when things are feeling their worst, it will be ok.
Life has a way of sorting things out. I just have to remember to believe that.
And to breathe.
You start and end with family.
The show Modern Family is a hilarious take on family in the current day.
I love to watch this with my family as we can all relate to it, especially different characters.
I love my family, no matter the disagreements, conflicts, challenges that life has thrown us. My immediate unit of five is strong, supportive and capable of anything that comes our way.
We will make it through, together. No matter what.
What is inspiring the start to your week? Or what are you looking forward to?

Fashion Speaks For You- Anya Sarre

Hi readers! Sorry for the couple of weeks of silence, I was off enjoying a trip around the USA… I’d love to say it was all in the name of research but it was definitely a chance for me to unwind and have some fun. In saying that I wrote a lot of information down and observed a lot, which I will be turning into blog posts, some of which will be published this week.

Until then, I have something really great for you to read (and a fantastic opportunity for this blog/blogger). I was contacted by Anya Sarre, a celebrity stylist, who offered to write a guest post to be featured on For the Style Seeking Girl which is included below.

Fashion Speaks For You – Anya Sarre

Looking great entails that you are feeling great both on the inside and outside. The best fashion secret is that when you feel relaxed and enthusiastic! Emanate self-confidence.

The truth is that sometimes even superstars desire a self-confidence boost, and looking fashionable is the way to do it. Fashion allows you to display your personality and style through the clothes and accessories you wear. Whether you spend a couple of hours or just ten minutes preparing, it is always best when you don’t look like you are trying too hard.

Undoubtedly, one of my favorite looks for the fall season is the beloved maxi skirt. There are plenty of designs, textures and styles on the market. However, the maxi skirt is indeed a global style that works on all physiques, and it can be styled as part of your outfit within a few minutes. An outrageous misunderstanding is that you have to be tall to pull off the maxi skirt. This cannot be further from the truth – if you are a small person, you can put on your maxi dress with fall heel boots or wedge boots. If you want to go for the vintage look, you can use flats or even stylish slippers for comfort on your feet.

A good pleated maxi dress with a thin cardigan to toss on the denim top is what you are going to need for this season. When choosing your skirt, you should pick an item based on its compatibility with the rest of your wardrobe. Be sure to look for a maxi skirt in a vivid flower print and wear it with a slim and solid large knit sweater for the ideal look.

In addition, you should not be terrified of accessories and shoes! Putting on accessories is vital to a fashionable look that is complete. You can choose either a statement necklace around your neck or perhaps large earrings or hoops to highlight your look. Dare to try a new color or pattern this fall season and stand out while looking fashionista fabulous!

A patterned scarf is great to
pair with this look to add a pop of
colour and some extra warmth!

If you are still confused what to wear this fall, it is simple: look for a maxi skirt, boots and fashion accessories and get thrilled for your brand new look! With these items, you are going to turn heads wherever you go.

This look is also wonderful to take travelling, using knits, blouses and singlet tops combined with accessories and shoes ensures that this look can go from casual to dressy, or day to night.

For my Australian readers, as we move from Winter to Spring this look will be fantastic for those sunny days that still carry some chill. Add some floral accessories (follow Anya’s advice with necklaces, earrings or a scarf) to get into the spirit of warming weather.

I just want to say thankyou to Anya for your contribution to For the Style Seeking Girl. My style lovers, please let us know what you think of this article and if this is a style that you wear or will try.

Happy Styling! Kooklah
