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,

SEPTEMBER IN SANTORINI

IMG_1976

My time in Santorini was spent exactly how it should be, relaxing by the pool, sailing the sapphire water, exploring winding, cobbled pathways and eating too much Tzatziki.

Santorini was without doubt one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Every photo I took could have been a postcard and as the sun set, each minute that passed was more glorious than the last.

Have a look below to see what I got up to!

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!

 Today I bring you a short and sweet little OOTD post that I recently donned on a Sunday. This ones for the lazy days when you’re not quite in the mind frame to put together a creative outfit after a big week. Although very simple, I like the effortlessness of this outfit and I loved even more how comfortable I felt for a day of running errands.

Tshirt – Portmans
Shorts – Cotton On
Shoes – Topshop
Sunglasses – Kookai

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.

WHAT I’M WEARING
Tshirt – Etsy
Skirt – Cameo
Shoes – Wanted
Bag – Kate Spade
Sunglasses – Asos

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!

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!
