Spring Favourites

There’s nothing I love more than fresh flowers to welcome Spring back into my life, and after receiving this beautiful bunch from a very special someone, I felt inspired to share a few of my other favourite things from the Spring season so far.

Starting with these very pink sunglasses from Zero UV. After a long winter of hibernating and exclusively wearing black, it always takes me a little while to re-introduce colour again. These fun sunnies were the perfect transitional accessory to let the brights come back into my wardrobe.

This very jewelled necklace always helps to step up a simple outfit, pair it with a plain white T-shirt and suddenly your casual outfit is ready for Friday night drinks.

Some other items that made my Spring favourites list were these two creamy lipsticks from Sephora. They not only smell like candy but they also moisturise as much as a lip balm whilst providing a subtle colour. These vanilla scented tealights which instantly make any room feel more cosy, this Flora bra from Lonely Hearts and of course, this new Chanel bag that has barely left my side since it was bought on a recent trip to Rome.

What’s making your favourites list this Spring?

With love,

BON VOYAGE!

At 2.30 in the morning (If you could even call that morning) I’ll be dragging myself out of bed and into a taxi to the airport.
I decided it was time for a summer getaway and so for the next two weeks I’ll be exploring Greece, Turkey and Italy!

I will try and share some of my travels with you over the next fortnight,
but you can keep up with my adventures on Instagram!

Thanks to some very special readers, I was lucky enough to be chosen as a finalist in the Pedestrian Blogster Awards for 2014!
I was so excited to receive the nomination and it’s all thanks to you! 🙂

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.

Dress: ASOS
Jacket: Glassons
Shoes: Topshop
Rings: Pandora, Style Nanda
Sunglasses: Style Nanda

These were about all the photos I could get before the sky turned on me and poured for the rest of the night!

OOTD: Weekend Pinafore

The first weekend of Spring brought Sydney an absolutely beautiful day full of sun and clear skies. It was an interning day for me so unfortunately I couldn’t spend my day frolicking on the beach, but I made the most of it with a delicious brunch in a balcony cafe and a walk around Glebe Markets.

What I’m Wearing?
White T-shirt – Nude Lucy $40
Pinafore – One off from a Korean clothing shop called Le Queen $175
Boots – Topshop $120
Ring – ATAT $50

  

Some girls have a thing for shoes, others have a thing for bags. Me? I have an obsession with weird and wonderful sunglasses. Sure these obstruct my vision a little bit, but these are my new favourites and they are worth it!

Much love,
