Layer upon layer upon Layer

Remember how we laughed about that silly Sara Lee cheesecake ad where the Swedish woman kept saying Layer upon Layer!

How right she was!! I really enjoyed my little foray into TV land and my wee stint on Good Morning TV on Monday 14th March. It was nerve racking but lots of fun.

I talked to Sarah Bradley and the good people of NZ who were watching about how great layering your clothing is. I am a firm advocate as my clients will attest! I believe it’s a versatile, modern and funky way of dressing which also happens to be hugely practical.

On the show I wore a tunic dress that was way too short for my years! So I took inspiration from the fabulous Sarah Nichol and teamed another longer tunic slip dress underneath and Voila, it worked a treat.

So layer upon layer of dresses. I also highlighted how great it is to choose to either layer OVER your clothing (dress, summer top etc) or to go UNDER. Both look great and can be adjusted to the season.

If you are say a menopausal woman, then going with an over layer allows you to quickly and easily get it off when you experience a hot flush. If you are a cold fish like me during winter time then I always layer my merino underneath to keep that extra warmth near my core.

Summer dresses can become all year rounders. Arms are never shown and we KNOW how many of you hate your arms!!

Stay colourful, keep layering during autumn!!

Living and looking good for today

The terrible events in Christchurch really does help us put things into perspective.

The health and safety of our family and friends is foremost. We also need to start living more 'in the moment' and enjoying our lives each day.

You need to feel good about yourself in order to be able to truly do that. A sure-fire way of feeling good is to look good. This gives you that all important 'glow' of confidence that has a snowball effect on your whole day.

Feeling good and confident helps you to pass on kindness and generosity of spirit which we have been seeing throughout NZ during this terribly sad time.

Let’s not let a natural disaster be the only time we do this. Smile, help others and always, always, always tell someone when they look nice or are wearing a colour that suits them. Give them that little bit of sparkle that they will then pass on to someone else.

Stay colourful everyone and stay safe. Much love and thoughts to all those in Christchurch from Wardrobe Flair.
