The Model and Me: Adrift autumn-winter 2017

The Model and Me: Adrift autumn-winter 2017

Nikki Parkinson Fashion, The Model and Me 12 Comments

There is no place like home but the last few days have been pretty damn amazing. I’m just back after hosting our first Melbourne trip with Hello Me Escapes.

Remember Bali last year? (and yes, Bali is on again in October), well this trip brought together even more awesome women. Some travelled in pairs. Some came on their own. By the end of the first night it really didn’t matter as, cliched as it might sound, it seemed like we’d always known each other. I’ll have more on the trip – and the high tea event – later in the week. Stay tuned.

I’m very lucky to work with incredible Australian brands as part of my work here at Styling You and meeting women who had in turn embraced those brands I love is always very humbling.

I can tell you there were more than a few Adrift fans on the trip and also in the audience at our high tea event. 

They love how this label is for every woman, how it’s a label that encourages every woman to dress to suit their style personality.

In this post I’m featuring a new top from Adrift as well as one of my favourite Adrift basics.

Long may the off-the-shoulder look reign, I say. But it’s autumn, you say? Wear it up higher on your shoulders, I say. Add a scarf that could become a wrap if it’s cold, I say.

The design of this OTS top is fabulously flattering with its front, vertical lace panels. I do love a charcoal/black combination too. It just works.

The longer sleeves are perfect for a trans-seasonal look – and yes, I could have worn this in Melbourne this past weekend, it was so lovely and mild. Even with the skirt.

Now, let’s talk about the skirt. If you’ve been playing along, you would know that I do very much love this style. I have it in white and blue denim but this black/indigo colour makes a welcome addition for the cooler months.

Bare legs for now work for me but adding leggings or tights later will work with this skirt style. To continue to wear the top later, simply wear it up on the shoulders and add a longline charcoal or black cardi to keep you warm.

So tell me, do you have this skirt? Still loving the OTS look?

    I love this look – that skirt is great, and I love it paired with the top. Super stylish.
    I guess this answers my musings about OTS tops. I ripped my favourite summer top last night – but then I realised it was still available online in my size. I was wondering whether to get a replacement, or whether they would be out of style by next season… Do you still think it will be ok for next spring-summer?

    • The OTS top is still very much around next season Luc! So if you love it, snap it up!

        Yay!! Thanks Nickki !

    Loving that OTS look, and you absolutely rock it!

  • Love this outfit for Autumn. That skirt is definitely a versatile piece for all the seasons. 🙂

  • It’s a fabulous top, Jacqueline! x

    I keep looking at that skirt. Just thinking it might accentuate the tummy I am trying to lose. I really like the frayed hemline and colour. You look great!

    • I don’t find it does that for me in any of the colours. For me, it’s also what I wear with it – much like stretch, skinny jeans.
