Now, before I get into this week’s everyday style round up, if you haven’t already got dressed, I’d love you to consider wearing something red today.
If you do so, post a photo here in the comments or on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #redfordaniel.
It’s almost three years ago since I wrote this post and asked you to wear red and it would mean a lot if you could do again – for Daniel and for the whole Morcombe family.
I know that so many charities need our money and support but if you can also send a few dollars to the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, do so knowing that they will continue to help prevent what happened to their own child happening to others.
The Morcombes’ dignity and ability to work for the greater good have always amazed me. It takes pretty special people to work beyond grief and create a legacy that will make a difference in other families for many, many years to come.
… now to this week.
I love looking back through the #everydaystyle feed on Instagram each week and after last week’s apparent glam trend, I went looking for this week’s trend.
And guess what I found?
For many of you it was all about monochrome.
This pleased me.
Black and white is a timeless and powerful combination. It always looks polished. It can be accented with a splash of colour. And it’s the ideal trans-seasonal combination when we may not want to break out our black-on-grey-on-black wardrobes just yet.
Scroll on for some of fave monochrome outfits from the week.
When it came to which outfit of mine you liked the best, it seems that Faux Fuchsia is on the money. Sequins ARE key.
I employed some sequins in the form of a sass and bide tee from about 12 months ago to get me motivated for a Monday. Worked them back with my new favourite pants.

Blonde Ambition: Brooke shows up in the #everydaystyle feed looking like a ray of stylish sunshine. She’s a Brisbane-based journalist and blogger with a lust for life that matches her wardrobe. Love her bucket lists.
Mummy of Style and Substance: Kellie was one of the first bloggers I met in real life – almost four years ago. We rendezvoused at Sydney airport – Kellie from Melbourne, me from Brisbane – flying in for the day for one of the first ever beauty bloggers events. She started her blog as a place to share information and thoughts on things that mums might be interested in – not about parenting or kids.
