Daily Style – Red One Shoulder Number and Strappy Flatforms

One shoulder red dress from ASOSMen’s watch from Daniel Wellington* – Damas Camper shoes (this style is no longer available but they make new versions with the same sole design every year.) – Silver bangle from Mama Smaggle for my birthdayHoop earrings from India (Kelly found them and practically hurled them at my head knowing they were just what I was looking for! xxx)

Dermalogica Oil Free Matte Sunscreen* (this stuff is awesome for hot days because it totally mattifies all the grease and shine) – Rimmel Fix and Perfect PrimerGarnier BB Cream* – Maybelline  Pot Liner (Bobbi Brown gel liner is my favourite but it’s pretty expensive here in Australia so I grabbed this to try and I really like it. Great for waterlining.) – Natio concealer (this stuff is the bomb, cheap as chips and blends like a dream) – Benefit Oh La La Lift (I swear by this stuff, just dab it on under your eyes AFTER concealer to brighten it all up. Makes any cover job look heaps more natural.) – NARS Blush in Orgasm – Maybelline Great Lash MascaraL’Oreal The Falsies MascaraBody Shop Brow Kit

 This outfit was worn for a super productive day of photography and writing and a way less productive walk to the post office. It amazes me that every time I give one of the staff my collection slip, they stare at it like I’ve just given them a handful of worms. It just cannot be as consistantly confusing for them as it appears to be. I know this because I used to work in a post office. It’s pretty straight forward. End rant.

P.S Any item marked with an asterisk* was provided for editorial consideration… but if I didn’t like it I wouldn’t write about. I’d just awkwardly email the company and be like ‘Sorry but that thing you sent me sucked’. 

Carly is the founding editor of Smaggle which launched in 2007 back when blogging was weird. She has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. Hoop earrings are totally her thing and she almost got run over by Myf Warhurst while out jogging one day.

    I love that you look so glam to work at home and go to the post office. I usually wear track pants and a tank top. Even better if it’s clean (unlikely). But I will resolve to do my eyebrows and wear something other than lip balm, even if it does look like pipstick on… errrr… a pig…

    WHOA MAMA! That dress is amazing on you, I bet your man can’t keep his hands off you when you wear it!!!

    I love the cheeky name of that blush, it looks gorgeous and I just want to get some so that if someone asks me about the blush I”m wearing I can make them really awkward when I say what the shade is called 😉

    Okay this is weird, but just as I was about to click “submit”, my boyfriend brought in the post and guess what was in it!!! I am so excited to try everything out! You are beyond fab, thank you a million times <3
