My everyday staples this winter have been jeans, a collared shirt & a crop (eg. here and here) I picked up myself up some basic not basics from August Street to add to my collection. I love this new white collared shirt with tail and front panel detailing. I’ve layered it under a crop as per usual because I’m obsessed with creating unusual proportions. I wore this blazer to add some dimension and even more layers with it’s peplum hem detail. Oh, and yes that’s a Prada of which I borrowed from Camille, what a baller, oh and the shoes too!
Hi all, how’s your week coming along? Mine’s gone off with a bang, literally, there was an explosion in my bathroom and we haven’t had hot water for 5 days. Nothing like an #ALSicebucketchallenge every morning.
In this look I again am channelling my all white is alright vibes. Putting flare and flare (sleeve and shorts) together was probably a risky move but I like the mix of boho drapey sleeves with the structured shorts because I’ve never been 100% boho or 100% structured. Be free! Be you! (Ok, that sounded like a cheesy tampon commercial, yuk)

The sun was peaking this weekend – got my legs out and travelled in white. In this look I wore this August Street tee backwards as I wanted to create a V neck as oppose to the U neck to wear my crystal necklace which I picked up from the markets in Surry Hills. My trusty black boots which I’ve worn to death over a couple years and black hat which I found in my apartment. Thanks to which ever house mate it belongs to!! haha
I thought I’d graduated from very printy clothes but apparently not, when I saw this August Street set I grabbed it immediately. How did I forget that summer weather is a big influence on colours and prints. Can’t freakkkinngg wait, m8!
Hope you have the best week and enjoy the last few days of winter!
As I mentioned on instagram Camille of Frilly Skirts was a blogger at the very first ever blogger event I went to, she was so lovely to me even though my blog had just come off the ground. Ever since she’s been such a kind hearted person to me so I’m thrilled to have these collaboration pics with her! I love the blogging community and the friends you get to meet along the way.
In this look I’ve got on my fave unif boyfriend jeans, crop top and sleeveless trench for that “It’s not quite spring yet but I’ll pretend it is because I like it more than Winter” look.
Sharing my love of plaid and the sea in one post. haha #lame. but really. Plaid on plaid is rad. In this look I’m wearing Evil Twin’s new Poison Ivy Dress layered under a drapey chiffon shirt – I’ve done this to fade out the plaid overload a little bit, and gave it that harder edge with the leather. I’ve put a plaid scarf over it because to be honest, it’s the only scarf I have and it was freezing when I shot this. I think mixing prints is fun and experimental. They just have to be the right tones. A good example of this is Angeline from LoveThread, I love the colours and bold prints she’s put together.
For the first time ever I’ve got a guest on my page! And it’s the amazing Camille from Frilly Skirts! I love the idea of working with other bloggers, I love seeing how one blogger would edit and write about one collab vs. the other. Everyone has their own branding and taste and that’s what really makes every blog individual. (Unless you’re one of those bloggers that just looks like all those other blogs, that ain’t cool)
In this look I’m wearing super high rise jeans from UO because if you’re like me, my legs aren’t naturally long and Victoria’s Secret-y so wearing high rise jeans lengthens them and gives that optical illusion. I’ve worn it back with Cameo‘s super cute crop top layered under their new print camo jumper. To see details on Camille’s look check out her blog.
Hope you’re all well and your week is off to a good start!
I felt like I’ve done a million things this week. My abs are still sore from a class I did on Monday and it’s Friday in 12 minutes, I bought health insurance, I did a photoshoot at work, organised another one for two weeks time, designed 25 dresses, tops, skirts, pants, shorts, jackets, edited looks, bought a new gym membership, made a print, celebrated birthdays and farewells, blogged! Oh geez I need a breather.
I feel like having a blog you can never switch off. Even if you’re on holidays you’re always gonna try blog about that. Let people know how you’re going, what you’re doing, what you’re wearing. I don’t know if that’s good or bad haha.
In this look I’ve paired a work-ish blazer with an off duty style mini denim mini skirt. Being in my mid twenties, I don’t think I can ever go back to micro-mini length. I don’t wear alot of jewelery so how I’ve jazzed up this plain tee is by wearing a strappy bralette underneath so you can just see the strappy detail.
So now I bid you farewell as I drift off into snoozeland for 7.5 hours.
Matching back these floral flares from Somedays lovin’ with anything but this highly offensive/ borderline too rude for public shirt would be a stretch for me. The pants are so sweet, boho and fun-loving that I really had to bring it’s energy right down and say “NO, you are too happy, let’s bring it down a notch” with Johnny Cash as he is what I’d like to call the original emo.
How would you style these pants? I need pointers! haha
Building up basics in your wardrobe are a must, I don’t need to tell you these things. I have quite a few pairs of black jeans, white tees, chambray shirts and even vans. I wear this kind of outfit on the daily, so it seems appropriate to share with you all because if I were being honest (which I am) not all bloggers wear stilettos and dresses every day of the week. Heck, I even wore my trackpants to work on Monday. A serious CBF day.
So where do I buy all of my basics? Online. About 98% of the time. I hate going to the shops, I hate fake shop assistants, I hate finding a park, I love getting things delivered, I love free shipping and I love online discounts – because they’re always around! I rarely purchase anything online without some kind of discount haha #cheap. One of the best places to get these discounts is here. It’s worth having a browse on the site before you checkout with your cart.
It’s a quarter to midnight and I just finished watching the final episode of season 2′s “Orange is the new black”. I liked it. So now that I’m all caught up on tv shows I can resume back to normal life. Normal life being socialising, replying to emails, world news, blogging and catching up on “Suits”. Ok that last one involves tv too but there’s only a couple episodes I’m late with.
What else is new… My next door neighbours are blasting Prince & Incubus. I usually hate when they play music this late as I CANNOT get to sleep with noise. ever. but I love both those bands. actually it’s still annoying and I need to sleep.
In this super quick post I’m wearing trench coat from Asos (on sale now) with Asos jeans which are surprisingly amazing and comfy considering how affordable they were. It’s reaching the end of Winter so I can start packing away the coats soon… despite the winter being so mild. I don’t really remember feeling cold at all?
Ok sorry for the awkward blog rant but I need to sleep. Inserting earplugs now.
