So kids, here we are, day 31. And I’m seeing out the challenge with a little cheat. See this dress isn’t from any of the RSPCA Society Stores. It’s actually from my wardrobe and I haven’t worn it in a long time. It was hanging to one side with a lot of my other clothes in that sad category, you know the one… the “I know I haven’t worn it in ages but I might wear it again” category.
Ahhh day 30 and I’m not sure if this is Jungle Fever or Safari Crazy Lady. But who can say no to a leopard print pant amirite?
Living Doll pants, brand new, tags still attached. Seriously, who said op-shopping was hard work? And I LOVE the cuffs.
The belt is a curvy girls best friend. Cinch in the waist, flaunt the hips. And lets face it, curvy or not, sometimes highlighting your waist is all you need to fight the frump on certain days.
You didn’t think I was going to complete the Restyle challenge without featuring some stripes did you?
I was pretty excited when I spotted this denim skirt. I don’t usually gravitate towards dark denim but I loved the cut and the fact that it didn’t have a waistband. And in case you’re wondering, no, it didn’t come this distressed.
I was so happy I found this sexy little black dress to represent today’s Bow prompt. When I think of bow, for some reason I think girly which isn’t really me. But this dress proved me wrong in all the right ways!
You would have seen a sneak peek of these heels in Tuesday’s Cocktail post, they are little gems!
Two things happened to me while shooting this outfit with the delightful Melissa, I messed my heels up good and proper by walking through the dirt trail to get to this ‘bushland’ and then some kind of leech like worm creature found a home on my ankle. There were shouts and shrieks and what not, as you can imagine.

Corporate wear should be easy for me given that I work in an office, but I don’t often wear ‘business attire’. My usual work get up ranges anywhere from denim and Converse to blazers and Ksubi.
But I really loved this Zara blouse and hunted high and low throughout the RSPCA stores for something I could team it with for the It’s All Business prompt. And a pencil skirt it was! And as it turns out, it’s my favourite type of skirt. The cut works well on me and it’s not a colour I would normally be drawn to but hey, this challenge is all about stepping outside the box right?!
