Dapper Style

Paul Wojtaszak, sharp mortgage broker, looked every bit dapper in his outfit.

The 31 year old was spotted at the 'Compassion with Fashion' event. I loved his outfit combination; relaxed black jeans teamed up with a blazer and pocket square. Very guys chic.

Paul said, "I wanted to feel comfortable whilst looking well presented." That's just what I thought when I noticed his effortless style that he put together using brands from a great array of high- and low-end stores.

Nautical Chic for Brunch

I spotted Morgan (21) who is a bank teller in Canberra with a great take on new season style. . Morgan was strolling down Lonsdale Street in Braddon just after finishing brunch with her friends out in the sun.

The anchor placement print on her navy blue top was what caught my eye. I thought the nautical trend was a great way to tie in one of the key colours for Winter this year, navy, and it also matched perfectly with her jeans and cute ballet flats.

Morgan said that she needed a big delicious breakfast and chose to wear something comfortable as she was moving into her first apartment that day. We thought she looked quite chic to be handling such a job!

Tailored Texture

Luckily for us, Jess Brown, 28, was style-stalked at the 'Compassion with Fashion' event on Saturday 21 February.

What I liked about Jess’s outfit was that it had a range of textures and styles - such an eclectic mix.

We loved her draped vest from Supre and her balloon-shaped pants by Rumour with textured pockets.

Jess is a hair dresser and was working backstage at 'Compassion with Fashion'. "I love mixing patterns together" she said. She even added a pop of colour to the mix, wearing MAC's 'Girl About Town'.

Sometimes too much, is not enough! This look is certainly one I will try to replicate in the future.

Sunshine Lunch at Kingston Foreshore

I spotted Sam, a student, on a sunny Saturday afternoon along the Kingston Foreshore. She was looking incredibly trendy and standing out in minimal colours.

She was a picture of femininity in her outfit - particularly her delicate heels and pleated white skirt that had caught my eye.

Sam had dressed to celebrate her mum's birthday at lunch, wearing a top, skirt and bag from Sportsgirl, and shoes from Betts.

This girly and simple outfit was a perfect match for the occasion and weather!

Dazed and Confused - The Skort

From afar, I noticed that Shannon was wearing a striped skirt and top combo. But then when I approached her to tell her how much I liked her matchy, matchy look... she told me that it was actually a skort jumpsuit!

How fabulous... I love these!

Mixing different colours and patterns (done with the floral shoes) keeps your look interesting. We love the floral clash with the stripes - it creates a fun look for a Saturday night outing after the National Multicultural Festival.
