Floral in Fall : Floral Pants & Lace + Statement Necklace GIVEAWAY!

Saturday, October 04, 2014 Simone - Your Style Architect 21 Comments

It's the weekend again everyone.

Been a long holiday week and was hoping to have more time to blog, but with the boy out of school for a number of days and the internet down at home, I could not do much till today. Was quite frustrating to be honest.

Those of you following the news would know that tensions are running high in Hong Kong with pro democracy protestors. Most people are now starting to get increasingly frustrated having to stay at home so as not to be inconvenienced by the standstill of transportation networks at certain major routes/ areas of Hong Kong and with some shops being closed in those affected areas.

Hence I hope this post would help cheer you up a little. Seeing most people here in HK would be home, getting on the internet to while away their time as going out isn't a good idea at the moment, or simply because its the weekend if you are on the other side of the world, and having a little more personal time to spare. I have decided to throw the first of my GIVEAWAYS of a beautiful Turquoise Fringe Statement Necklace to brighten your weekend. ( Read on for giveaway requirements and terms & conditions.)

Chanced upon an Instagram group that has fun spinning daily looks from an inspirational styleboard, put together by 2 fabulous ladies ( @jro1583 and @aem8168). This outfit was a spin to a look that was pinned on Instagram on 22 September. Tagged #PinnedItSpinnedIt, you will find women styling their daily outfits based on the inspirational pin and putting their personal touches to those looks to make it their own. Very fun....you should try it.

Just to give you an idea - here's the Pin that was put up on 22 September on styling a floral jacket, but since I didn't have one, I spinned it with floral pants instead.

Seeing the weather is slowly cooling down, I had thrown on a lace jacket over a similar lace top for those cooler days. However for those of you in warmer climates, the picture below sans jacket is equally great for warmer weather and a night about town. Just throw on a statement necklace, great heels and you got the perfect look.

Will certainly be sharing more Outfit Spins with you as I continue to play this challenge. For one, you don't have to think too hard about your outfit for the day as you have an inspiration to work with. Isn't that great!!
