Delightfully Snug

IMG_1687

Today I bring you a short little post featuring this extremely warm, down jacket from Style Nanda.

Every single time I wear this coat I receive so many comments. Most of which sound something along the lines of – “Oh my gosh, you are so puffy!” or “That is the biggest jacket I’ve ever seen.”

Yes it’s true that when I wear this jacket I feel exceptionally puffy, but I also feel delightfully snug!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Coat – StyleNanda

Jumper – Zara

Jeans – Rollas

Boots – The Iconic

YVES SAINT CAMEO

IMG_1411

Today’s outfit features this amazing skirt by the Australian label Cameo. I absolutely love the flattering shape that the heavy fabric creates and the monochromatic floral detailing. It’s a very versatile piece that would suit all seasons, and can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.

I spent my day having brunch in the gorgeous suburb of Bronte in Sydney’s East, so I opted for a more casual look by pairing this skirt with a YSL logo T-shirt.

Skirt – Cameo
Shoes – Wanted

COCO MY HEART

IMG_0859

When most of us meet new people we tend to shake hands and smile politely. But when I met a friends’ friend the other day, I asked to steal his jumper. I think protocol suggests that you should wait at least a while before stealing your guy friends clothes, but then again not every boy owns a jumper as DELICIOUS as this one.

Since this sweater speaks for itself, I kept it simple with some faded black jeans, these amazing ASOS sneakers and topped it off with my newest Zero UV sunglasses that were sent to me last week.

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!

The Lazy Smock

November in Sydney is the time of year when the sky can’t seem to make up its mind on whether it wants to bask us in the hot sun, or drown us in its torrential rain. Today was one of those awkward in between days so I decided to take the best of both worlds and wear some favourite items from my winter wardrobe for this half-hearted summer day!

I went for this cute ASOS denim smock dress which I absolutely love. It’s perfect for those lazy days when you don’t really have the brain to put together a multiple garment outfit, but still want to look like you tried. I paired it with this quilted leather bomber jacket for a bit of an edge. You can buy my dress HERE.

OOTD: Spring Playsuit

IMG_0528

Finally Spring has arrived in Sydney, and although our winter hardly caused a shiver, it is so lovely to be able to bring back playsuits and bare legs. I love that this piece is versatile enough for winter wear with its long sleeves and winter colour palette whilst also being suitable for the warmer days.
I spent the day with the gorgeous Ash from SHEEER down in one of our city’s most beautiful spots.

WEARING:
Playsuit – ASOS
Boots – Topshop
Sunglasses – Sportsgirl
Lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss Collection in 107
