BASICALLY…

IMG_0798

I am one of those people who absolutely NEVER dress weather appropriately. Even when I know that its too chilly to not wear a coat, nine times out of ten I will decide to leave my coat behind. Even when its way too hot for sleeves, you’ll find me tucking a cute jumper into into some shorts. I tend to dress for the mood I am in that day rather than what would keep my body at the ideal temperature. I seem to have this ‘I’ll be fine’ mentality which usually results in me freezing or overheating. I just never learn!

Todays outfit was one that I donned on my weekend trip to Melbourne. Clearly I wasn’t feeling particularly colourful that day, so I left the colour palette quite grey-scale, with the only pop coming from my nails and lipstick.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jeans: American Apparel
Top: Zeitgeist
Coat: Minty Meets Munt
Boots: Topshop
Sunglasses: Bondi Markets
Lipstick: INOXA in ‘Tangerine’

This was the first time I wore this coat all Winter, and it was actually Spring!
I’m sure I’ll learn my lesson when I move to London though. I’m certain I’ll be needing a lot more than this little grey coat.
Look out for the walking sleeping bag, because that will be me.

Until next time!

Melbourne City Break

October in Sydney is coming to an end and you know what that means, four months of 30 degree summer days to look forward to!

I personally love the summer and wish it was warm all year round, but this year I wasn’t quite ready to end my love affair with jeans, coats, jackets and layers. I decided it was time for a little city break holiday to revisit and farewell winter, and where better to fly off to than Melbourne!

Melbourne is a busy little city full of cute cafes, boutique shopping and rooftop bars,
all of which happen to be three of my favourite things.

I will share some of my Melbourne adventures with you over the next week.
Until then, you can follow my Instagram to see what I got up to: kateskelly

CASUAL FRIDAY

Todays outfit is a simple and casual one. After all, whats more casual than shorts and a T-shirt? I recently ordered these shorts along with 1,0045382 other things (help me) from a Korean store called STYLE NANDA. They come in only one size and were described as oversized. When I pulled them out of the box I did wonder if I could make them work, however with a bit of rolling up and thanks to the belt they come with, I am loving them! I paired these with a simple white T-shirt that I gathered and tied and minimal jewellery.

WHAT I’M WEARING

T-Shirt – Nude Lucy $40
Shorts and belt – Style Nanda $38.20
Shoes – Topshop $68
Sunglasses – Style Nanda $16.40

   

I also apologise for the lack of posts recently, I am going through a major wardrobe rejuvenation and I’m sure some of you will understand how all consuming that can be! Good news is that many many presents from the postman have arrived, and I have countless garments to share with you!

Until next time,
