Thank-you to everyone who wore red last Friday in support of the Morcombe family.
I had goosebumps each time I saw another photo of someone supporting the #redfordaniel hashtag.
Quite a few people asked me if I thought that the Morcombe family felt the support.
I think they have.
Nothing will ever take away the pain they have experienced and will continue to experience but their work will live on.
Please donate if you can.
Now to this week’s round up.
Following on from last week’s everyday style theme detection, my style investigation uncovered a theme that had me turning an unattractive shade of green.
Here in south-east Queensland we have had a rewind on the weather charts.
It’s felt like January. Mid-summer humidity at a bazillion percent.
But in the #everdaystyle feed, I’ve seen people donning all manner of jackets, caps and kimonos. Wardrobe pieces that wink at me from my wardrobe but just can’t be worn at the moment on account of non-autumn weather.
Check out some of these examples below and you’ll understand my envy.
See, as soon as you add a piece like these to any outfit, then you have taken the whole outfit up a notch.
You just look more put together – that’s what layering does. And I can’t wait to get stuck into wearing some if the weather gods decide to finally get on my side.
My #redfordaniel outfit got the thumbs up from you.
This dress was picked up for $50 at the recent Leona Edmiston Brisbane warehouse sale. Love this shape that Leona does. I have a black and white one in the same shape.
The ballet flats work with this frock as it’s a bit shorter. Normally I’d reserve my ballets for wearing with skinny jeans or leggings.

Yes, I had a whole lot of jacket-wearing envy going on …
Sophisticated Mumma: The gorgeous SM has been joining in #everydaystyle for a while now and I was super excited to discover that she’d now started a blog. She’s a beauty therapist by profession and like me, likes to leave the house with a face on. Like me she also likes a G&T in a jar. Spurted my own G&T out when I read that she likened them to adult versions of a sippy cup.
Sister in Style: Gold Coast-based Fiona is a teachers aide by day and an accessories maker by night. I love that besides selling her work on her site, she blogs to give inspiration on how to wear her designs. All are handcrafted and affordable.
Want to join in? Simply upload a photo of yourself showing your everyday style to Instagram or Facebook, use the #everydaystyle and tag @stylingyou so I can find you. Don’t feel you have to post every day. Post when you can. For consideration in my outfit of the week round up, I look first for clear, in-focus photos without text or borders on them. These work in best with the montage layout.
PS. My blogging friend Rachel from Redcliffe Style has started a new fashion bloggie link-up: Forty Plus Style. If that’s you and you’re looking for more inspiration, check it out here and every Thursday.
So tell me, do you have a favourite outfit you wore some time during the last week? Why did you love it so?
