Delightfully Snug

IMG_1687

Today I bring you a short little post featuring this extremely warm, down jacket from Style Nanda.

Every single time I wear this coat I receive so many comments. Most of which sound something along the lines of – “Oh my gosh, you are so puffy!” or “That is the biggest jacket I’ve ever seen.”

Yes it’s true that when I wear this jacket I feel exceptionally puffy, but I also feel delightfully snug!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Coat – StyleNanda

Jumper – Zara

Jeans – Rollas

Boots – The Iconic

MIDNIGHT MAURIE

IMG_1639

Todays outfit features this Maurie and Eve sequin jumper that I bought at Sydney Fashion Weekend back in May.

You know when you see a garment from across the room and you do that determined half run to grab it before anyone else? Well this amazing jumper had that effect on me. I love that the sequins are velvet on one side, creating this luscious, matte effect, and the slick and shiny reverse side catches any light, taking this cropped jumper from casual to glamorous.

I paired this with black jeans and some patent leather heels for a sophisticated night look that is comfortable and warm for this chilly winter.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jumper – Maurie and Eve

Jeans – Rollas

Shoes – Marco Gianni

I was an N.L.P Woman! #MBFWA

So the past few weeks I have been kept on my toes (quite literally in my attempt to be taller) as I was fortunate enough to be chosen as a dancer/model in the N.L.P Women runway show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia!

Now normally a 5 ft 6 girl like myself would never be able to walk a runway in fashion week, but N.L.P being super bold and innovative, decided to use dancers instead of models to showcase the sporty and practical side to their glamorous swimwear.

Here are a few snaps from the show!

The response was absolutely amazing and N.L.P’s decision to use dancers proved to be a huge success!

A special thanks to:
MAC cosmetics
Schwarzkopf
Essie Polish
Palmers
H2Coco

and of course, a huge thank you to N.L.P !!!

You can shop the collection straight off the runway on STYLERUNNER.

Sunday Comfort

 Today I bring you a short and sweet little OOTD post that I recently donned on a Sunday. This ones for the lazy days when you’re not quite in the mind frame to put together a creative outfit after a big week. Although very simple, I like the effortlessness of this outfit and I loved even more how comfortable I felt for a day of running errands.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Tshirt – Portmans
Shorts – Cotton On
Shoes – Topshop
Sunglasses – Kookai

BASICALLY…

IMG_0798

I am one of those people who absolutely NEVER dress weather appropriately. Even when I know that its too chilly to not wear a coat, nine times out of ten I will decide to leave my coat behind. Even when its way too hot for sleeves, you’ll find me tucking a cute jumper into into some shorts. I tend to dress for the mood I am in that day rather than what would keep my body at the ideal temperature. I seem to have this ‘I’ll be fine’ mentality which usually results in me freezing or overheating. I just never learn!

Todays outfit was one that I donned on my weekend trip to Melbourne. Clearly I wasn’t feeling particularly colourful that day, so I left the colour palette quite grey-scale, with the only pop coming from my nails and lipstick.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jeans: American Apparel
Top: Zeitgeist
Coat: Minty Meets Munt
Boots: Topshop
Sunglasses: Bondi Markets
Lipstick: INOXA in ‘Tangerine’

This was the first time I wore this coat all Winter, and it was actually Spring!
I’m sure I’ll learn my lesson when I move to London though. I’m certain I’ll be needing a lot more than this little grey coat.
Look out for the walking sleeping bag, because that will be me.

Until next time!

Melbourne City Break

October in Sydney is coming to an end and you know what that means, four months of 30 degree summer days to look forward to!

I personally love the summer and wish it was warm all year round, but this year I wasn’t quite ready to end my love affair with jeans, coats, jackets and layers. I decided it was time for a little city break holiday to revisit and farewell winter, and where better to fly off to than Melbourne!

Melbourne is a busy little city full of cute cafes, boutique shopping and rooftop bars,
all of which happen to be three of my favourite things.

I will share some of my Melbourne adventures with you over the next week.
Until then, you can follow my Instagram to see what I got up to: kateskelly

OOTD: Spring Playsuit

IMG_0528

Finally Spring has arrived in Sydney, and although our winter hardly caused a shiver, it is so lovely to be able to bring back playsuits and bare legs. I love that this piece is versatile enough for winter wear with its long sleeves and winter colour palette whilst also being suitable for the warmer days.
I spent the day with the gorgeous Ash from SHEEER down in one of our city’s most beautiful spots.

WEARING:
Playsuit – ASOS
Boots – Topshop
Sunglasses – Sportsgirl
Lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss Collection in 107
