I fell into the whole blogging business quite by accident and my love of style – hence the name STYLE LOVING 2. It all started with posting daily outfit photos on Instagram and has grown into a instagram account of well over 11000+ , my own Blog and has given me the opportunity to work with some fabulous brands.

One of those brands that I have been privileged to work closely with is RUBY & LILLI. And not only have I loved being able to wear their clothes, I have also loved working closely with its fabulous creator and designer Rachael.

She has become a fabulous friend – one that provides me with never ending (free) tech support, accompanies me to a multitude of social events and is trying to very hard to get me on a schedule (I think that is extremely wishful thinking as I’m a very fly by the seat of my pants kind a gal but I love it that she tries).

Now just a little background on Ruby & Lilli – Rachael is a gal that lives in her tees and jeans but was frustrated with not being able to find the perfect tee to fit a women’s curves. So to solve this problem she decided to start designing her own luxury tees that catered for women with curves, boobs , tummy’s and arms.

The success of the tees has given Rachael the confidence to branch out into a new range of Sports Luxe clothing, some gorgeous accessories including scarves, some amazing tassel clutches, earrings and rings. And there is even more fabulous things on the drawing board that I can’t wait to share with you in time but you will have to be patient.

For today I’m going to share with two different ways to wear the new release PEG pants $59.00 in NAVY/WHITE Stripe and BLACK/WHITE stripe from the new Classique Sports Luxe range.

The new PEG pants are made to flatter a women’s figure with a high waist and front pleats to disguise any (as Rachael likes say) mummy tummy, relaxed through the thigh area tapering down from knee with a cuff around the ankle. As I’m vertically challenged (I’m about 161 cm) I like to pull mine up and wear mid calf – showing a little bit of ankle/calf tends to make my legs look longer but if I do wear these pulled down I would add a heel.

First outfit is what I would consider the ultimate Sports Luxe look, wearing the BLACK/WHITE – Noir Stripe Peg pants (I wear the small in the peg pants) with the Noir Top $59.00 (also in a small) with my adidas Superstar Kicks and Quay sunglasses.

The Noir Top is made from super soft fabric that skims and doesn’t cling to curves, it has a scoped neckline to flatter a fuller chest, longer sleeves which I love as it enables me to hide my wings (oh yes they can and flap) and the side splits enable free movement in the body.

If you love this style check it out in the navy striped version with leatherette shoulder panels here.



For the second look I’ve dressed up the NAVY/WHITE Stripe Peg pants this is one of my favourite types of looks and would work for so many different occasions. I would and do wear this for work, shopping, date night and if it is a bit cool it look great with a denim jacket.

Again I’ve pulled up the pants to mid calf length to show a bit of ankle and give me leg length. I’ve added a pair of nude heels again this has the effect of lengthening the leg, a cheap and cheerful cami, straw hat and Ruby & Lilli Gilded Raffia Tassel Clutch $49.00.



Now something very exciting is happening on Thursday night the 1 st December – RUBY & LILLI is turning and to celebrate this there is going to be a fabulous party and I would love for you to come and join the festivities.

There will be champagne, fabulous food and goodie bags full of birthday gifts as well as lucky door prizes.

You will get the chance to meet Rachael the lady behind Ruby and Lilli as well as get a sneak peek at new season designs.

So if you are from Brisbane why not grab a couple of girlfriends and treat yourself to a fun night out. I’ll be there and so will the always gorgeous Bev from Iris May Style and we would love to see you.

    • Haha I’m quick off the mark where food is concerned 😳 unless the cocktail goes straight to my head and then I’ll just want to lie down in the corner
