Style It Project – Mix Camo Pants
I haven’t worn camo pants before, but what fun I had joining in the Style It Project
styling these comfortable and affordable pants from Coles Mix Apparel. I thought I would play along with Kimba Likes
and Rachel from Redcliffe Style
, (whom I had the pleasure of meeting later in the evening after I had these photos taken). I have to say, the girls made a great choice with these pants. The skinny leg is very flattering. My local Coles didn’t stock my size, so I’ve bought a size above, but in the pictures I look a size smaller then I really am! Which I can tell you I’m very happy about that illusion since that next size up was far too close to fitting me. I really do need to get a little more healthy with my eating, methinks. The jeans also are made from a stretch fabric. Very comfy.
I’ve dressed the camo up and made it more feminine and dressy by pairing them with my op shop jacket that I bought when I went op shopping with my friend Belinda
from B Being Cool
. B really has a good eye for sniffing out a designer brand and a good bargain. My brown leather heels and pearl earrings also finished off the look and confirmed that I wasn’t in combat.
Take the jacket off and the simple white shirt is a great casual look.
Later that evening Belinda and our friend Tonya from The Crafty Mummy travelled to Brisbane for Nikki Parkinson from Styling You launch of her book Unlock Your Style. It was lovely having a girls night out, which included not only the launch but Vietnamese afterwards and lots and lots of talking on the drive to and from the big smoke. I’ve flicked through the (signed of course!) copy and can’t wait to find some time to read it. It has a workbook format, so I suspect there may be blog posts ahead as I’m inspired and further unlock my style!
Thanks for doing the Style It Project Kimba and Rachel. It’s fun! I would have loved to join in last month, wearing black long sleeve shirts are one of my faves, but I just couldn’t find the time to go to Bonds and buy one sniff, sniff.
