Good things come from new adventures, say hello to a new collaboration between My Little Secret and Street Smith. This amazing opportunity has opened me to an array of new options for blogging. A side project in which budgets don't exist and price tags are ignored, simply style and design can prevail. God it felt good to be top to toe in designer labels and in Josh Goot to say the least, words don't describe the feeling. He has really ruled the playground this season, with signature abstract floral prints and a untouchable cult following. So to be actually dressed in the flesh in these garments, instead of just gazing at them through the glass windows of a high-end boutique or on the pages of a glossy Vogue, was a unforgettable experience. Dont worry my price-pointed roots wont be going anywhere (rent and bills wont let that happen either), but Im looking forward to a new concept in which I wont be as restricted and can explore this creative designer world. Simply ecstatic that Liz McLeish from Street Smith invited me to work on this new chapter and I hope you can enjoy another side of My Little Secret too.

My new weekend fav at the moment, just a simple pair of jeans. Not sure if its due to the more corporate attire I have to wear during the week now but im really enjoying keeping it at bit more casual on my days off. In the effort of not feeling too old or like a daggy mum, Id like to think the denim attire has to have some sort of fashion focus, whether its coloured denim, acid wash, or a snakeskin print like these babies. I've worn the snakey's back with a basic chambray shirt, these are huge this summer, nearly every retailer has done a version so plenty of well priced options available. Super easy, light-weight throw over for summer and they go back perfectly with the big pastel and floral trends this season. So squeeze into some skinnys and throw on a shirt. Keep it simple is what they say, why not do it the Ashas Little Secret way!

Lace, peplums and pastels, just a few of my favourite things this spring. Im calling this my summer suit for work....not sure how the feet will keep up walking around a shopping centre in these 9 inch heels however, but Ill give it a crack! The lace pencil skirt was the biggest win for me -so cheap! I love matching the tight tooshed bottom half of this outfit with the peplum shape on top. The peplum hides the love handles and tummy perfectly, literally scooping over these problem areas. As smart as nanna knickers, peplums also give sexy hour-glass contours reflecting that oh-so-hot-right-now 1950s style. So my advice for getting fit for 'the skinnyseason'- bring out the peplums. Summers little secret ;)

Im sure everyone is loving the weather at the moment! I know all the couples in this park I was shooting at were....Yes had a bit of a fml moment when I walked passed them snuggling on their picnic rugs in the sun! But I guess this is my way of embracing the sunshine, legs out and splashes of colour! We all know florals are big this season, loving the mashing of two floral prints in an outfit too, ive yet to really try this look, unless the pic with my phone counts. But florals are such a easy way to transcend into the new season. Get involved I say. Lets hope the sun keeps shining...and the couples go get a room :)
