So here is the fourth and final look I styled with Rubi Shoes - a bohemian, prairie-inspired look featuring the Gretel Wedge and hints of turquoise. The Gretel Wedge has become a Rubi favourite and can be snapped up for less than $30AUD over at their online store. But be quick! - the sale price is for a limited time only. Super comfortable these two-tone wedges can be worn on their own or teamed up with a cute pair of socks for an even "girlier" look if you are partial to that trend. Here I have worn the socks and heels combo with a cheetah printed skirt, though would also look great with a pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans and a white tee.

To welcome summer, big floppy hats make a return, providing protection from the sun and a great solution to hiding away beach hair. The wide-brim hat I'm wearing features a detachable flower, perfect if you want to get the most out of one accessory. As mentioned in my earlier post, accent colours can easily add life and vitality to any outfit, so don't be scared to accessorize with a single colour. To top off the prairie theme, the Indie X Body Bag features an ornate tooled leather-like design and is an appropriate size to fit all your everyday essentials. Did I mention this cross-body bag is now only $21AUD online? Say what?!!

I would like to thank everyone for all your lovely comments and feedback on my recent looks. There really is something for everyone at Rubi. Stay tuned for the next post as I will be sharing with you my special time at the Rubi Shoes Project Launch in Flinders Lane, Melbourne. I can guarantee you'll be in for a treat or two! :)
