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

RIDING IN THE 90’S

This week I was lucky enough to receive some pieces from Riders by Lee, the edgy, younger sibling of Lee Jeans.

Today is the day that their new 90’s inspired, ‘Avant Grunge’ collection hits stores and I am so excited to celebrate with them by bringing back styles from my favourite era of fashion!

The Winter ’14 collection celebrates the best of 90’s grunge with luscious, groupie inspired fur vests and coats, skinny denims in a gritty colour palette of biker blacks, stonewash greys and inky blue, and basics to compliment it all.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jeans – Riders by Lee, Bumster Vegas in Blizzard Wash $109.95
Vest – Riders by Lee, Groupie Vest in Arctic Fox $89.95
Tshirt – Nude Lucy $40
Shoes – Asos, Halfpenny heeled sandals $81
Clutch – StyleNanda $40

Now if you just have to have a piece (or 5) of the Riders by Lee Winter ’14 collection, it is now available from Myer, Just Jeans and online at the Iconic and Surf Stitch. Garments range from just $39.95 for basics and up to $119.95 for jeans and jackets. I know for sure that my groupie vest will be keeping me warm all winter, so get with it and come back to the 90’s with me!

Top Tartan

IMG_0970

For my last post of 2013, I bring you this cute outfit featuring this TOPSHOP skort.

I feel like this piece is super versitile and can be dressed up or down to suit the weather wherever you may be this holiday season! I almost wish I was enjoying a white Christmas with some of you over in the UK, so I could tuck a fluffy white jumper into the front of the skort and top it off with some little heeled boots. But since it’s 30 degrees over here in Sydney, I’ll do my best to adapt it for summer.

WEARING
Skort – TOPSHOP
Shoes – Windsor Smith
Tank – TOPSHOP
Sunglasses – Zero UV

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, and I wish you a Happy New Year!

See you next year!

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.

Sunday Brunch

IMG_0745

Melbourne is well known for its amazing coffee and delicious food, so upon arrival I thought I should see what all the fuss is about whilst indulging in my one true love – Brunch!

We sat down for brunch on a Sunday in one my favourite city alleys called Degraves Street (see below). The tiny street is packed with homely and busting Cafes that all have such delicious looking food that it was hard to choose just one! Take a look for yourself!

Luckily, I had the rest of the day to shop around the city and walk all of this off!

TOP FIVE: Perfumes

From left to right

Sweetheart by Ghost

This is my go-to, everyday perfume and probably my ‘signature scent.’ The smell is so fresh and lovable as it’s not too overpowering, even though it carries strong hints of vanilla.  I adore the tall, semi-matte bottle, it’s so simple and easy to carry in your handbag.

Beautiful Love by Estee Lauder

I find this perfume to be lovely and sweet, it smells like magnolia and jasmine with a strong base note that lingers on your skin and clothes. This one is good for all day wear since the smell won’t fade for hours, especially if you spray just a little bit in your hair. In terms of packaging it is quite simplistic, but also very large, so good value for money! I would wear this during Spring/Autumn.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs

Daisy is a gorgeous, floral perfume with a sweet undertone. The packaging is so cute and girly which reflects the scent of the perfume. Daisy is my go-to perfume for when I go out on the town with my friends.

Burberry Brit Eau De Toilette by Burberry

Burberry Brit is a luxurious smelling perfume with hints of vanilla, white peony and almond. It’s quite a seductive perfume in the sense that it smells delicious and lingers on the skin for hours. The packaging is simplistic and very classy. I would typically wear this perfume out to lunch or dinner.

Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf

Flowerbomb is a full-bodied, floral explosion with a slightly musky undertone and it smells absolutely amazing! It’s quite a strong perfume which for me is a good thing since I feel like perfume doesn’t always last on my skin for that long. I also love how the bottle looks like a little grenade made feminine. I would typically wear this perfume to an outdoor event or special occasion.

I always love looking into new perfumes and since Christmas is coming, I would love to hear any recommendations!

With love, Kate xx
