New Year Style with Special K and Max Fashions

New Year New You?  I'm not one for making grand sweeping new years resolutions myself.  I set myself a few goals but ultimately I just want to be better than I was the year before and continue looking and feeling as good as I can, both inside and out.  Kellogg's Special K and Max Fashions have teamed up with a special promotion to help achieve this on going goal.

Simply purchase any two specially marked Kellogg's Special K cereals or snack bar packs and you can redeem 20% off your next full price purchase from Max.  Plus you can go in the draw to win one of 10 Max wardrobes worth $1500.

I headed in store last week to check out the new season lines.  I've always loved Max.  Their long sleeve Merino tops were a staple of the female Takapuna Grammar seventh form wardrobe back in 99 when we were only allowed to wear plain, non logo mufti and I've continued to shop there ever since.  These are some of my favourite picks from Max:

I have this in navy.  It is so comfy and such a great fit.
I love playsuits.  They are so cool and easy to wear.

 I love navy and white together and these printed capris are gorgeous!
Love this shirt!  Perfect for early autumn.

You can never go wrong with a hat!  Especially a panama.  They are classic and they stylishly suit every occasion.

I ended up taking advantage of the Kellogg's Special K and Max promotion and picking up a few goodies for myself.  Being at stay at home mum, my wardrobe is full of casual clothes so I tried to choose a couple of smarter pieces.
I felt good in this the moment I put it on.  I loved the sheer sleeves.  For me they were reminiscent of a more vintage 50's style.  I'll stop here and say this I never really wear black.  I have a very real dislike for the commonly seen "standard kiwi women's outfit".  It appears more predominantly in winter but you'll see it year round - black top, dark blue jeans, black boots.  I hate it!  I don't like dark clothes.  It like light, white and colour.  So for me to buy a black dress, it must have been something good!  It's classic cut makes it suitable for work or a formal occasion plus it is so cool and comfortable.

I was really tempted to pair this dress with my dusty old cowboy boots.  Hhhmmm... maybe not but man I love those boots!

I loved this shirt the second I saw it and it felt even better on.  Light and white, I felt breezy and cool in in this sleeveless shirt.  I loved teaming it with white jeans and emerald green stilettos or dark jeans and ankle boots for a more casual look.  While the shirt is sheer you can get away with wearing just a nude bra underneath it however I preferred layering the shirt with a white Max basics singlet.

While Max is taking care of our outsides Special K are quietly taking care of the insides.  Special K Nourish has three different flavour cereals made from three grains, fibre and protein to help kick start your morning feeling confident and positive.

Plus Special K Nourish Bars which are an ideal size to pop in your handbag for a healthy snack on the go.

So what are you waiting for?  Who knew that good internal health could equal a new wardrobe?
