I’ll admit of all the Spin The Pin challenges Jo at iCurvy has set, this months pin is my favourite! Probably because the pin we were given to revamp to suit our own style is a look by the beautiful ladies behind They All Hate Us blog. Beautiful inside and out, I was so lucky to meet the girls in the flesh this time last year for Karrinyup Shopping Centre’s Spring/Summer 14 launch. You can read more about my TAHU fangirl moment here, but first let’s take a look at this months pin I’m liking so much!

What I love about Tash and Elle’s personal style is they always look super casual, but so well put together. Elle’s rocking the double denim, and I love the quirky addition of the fur stole, while Tash adds femininity to her casual jeans and top combination with a dash of lace. The girls certainly wear the clothes, the clothes do not wear them! The other aspect I loved was how fresh the pair look. And that is how I decided to Spin The Pin this month, keeping it fresh, casual and me. 

   

I actually took this outfit out for my sister L’s recent birthday celebration in the sunshine. Hanging out at a cool bar and restaurant is an ideal way to spend a weekend afternoon, but seasonal practically is always important, because although the sun was out it was still chilly. This chambray shirt actually came from E’s wardrobe, but instead of wearing it the way you’re meant to (buttoned up) I decided to throw it over a new striped singlet I picked up at Kmart recently. I loved the sailor vibe of the top, but because it has spaghetti straps and I do not have the boobs fit for a strapless bra I had to cover up! This worked well though because as I mentioned it was pretty chilly! Jeans are always my go to in the cold, and as much as I love the look of blue denim on blue denim I thought I would keep it Em and go for a black denim jean as opposed to a Canadian Tuxedo! To “fancy” up the outfit I went with a simple nude heel that just seem to work with anything! These cheap Kmart heels have been an absolute life saver as they’ve become my go to for majority of shoe dramas. No pressure ladies, but a nude heel is needed in every wardrobe!

As you may have noticed I decided to wear my singlet tucked in. I love the seamless, chic look of a cute top tucked in but to be completely honest I was a little paranoid about my tum. I’m only human! One piece of advice from me… confidence ladies! Even though my tummy isn’t as flat as an ironing board there was so many other places to look in the outfit I’m sure my paranoia wasn’t warranted! I like the outfit and I felt pretty sweet, so whatever! Paranoia be gone! Rock what you want to wear, you wear the clothes, don’t let them wear you (more body positivity ranting here).

  

I have so much fun playing along with Spin The Pin every month! I feel as if it pushes me to recycle my clothing and create looks I hadn’t thought of wearing. They’re the perfect prompt when you’re feeling a little uninspired. Check out my other pin spins for more inspiration (feminine meets masculine, print clashing, pastels and layering) or head over to iCurvy’s blog for her own take. If you’re a fashion fan or just want to play along link up via the monthly link up (find it here) or hashtag your pictures on Instagram with #SpinThePin. I can’t wait to see what everyone else does this month! 

Would you rock double denim?

  1. I LOVE the top tucked in! It makes such a difference to an outfit. I have the exact same worry but I think that confidence is the key to making it work. You look fab in double denim. Bron x
