Like the overall edited photo look.

A warm work wear look

I really like the overall look of this some what winter-corporate outfit. 
The chunky knit looks snug and warm under the formal suit jacket,
the red from my under-top was a really close match to the cranberry coloured panels on the jacket.

Jacket: Max Black jacket with cranberry detail
Top: City Chic open knit short-sleeve top
Under-top: Glassons red long length singlet
Pants: Max skinny work pant (super comfy and easy to wear!)
Shoes: Hannah's
Necklace: Silver Moon

Pink checkers

Thought I'd give the masking tape checkers look a try...
It was relatively easy to do (however, as you can see, my pink smudged a little) 
If I did this again I think I would use different colours - I think the pale colour was a bit too close to skin colour so didn't look as good on checkered nails) 

Overall I like the look. 
next time - new colours

Scaly nails

The name sounds horrible...
The finished result is actually rather cool.
See for yourself!
To get this look:
you simply paint a base colour (in this case Ocean Breeze by Revlon) you then use a dotting tool and about 4 different nail polishes to put spots over-lapping onto the nail) 

End result- Scaly looking nails

My cute orange dress.

I felt very sweet in this cute summery outfit. 
The weather wasn't too hot so black leggings and black cardi are the perfect touches for warmth and style.
