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?

Delightfully Snug

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

MIDNIGHT MAURIE

IMG_1639

Todays outfit features this Maurie and Eve sequin jumper that I bought at Sydney Fashion Weekend back in May.

You know when you see a garment from across the room and you do that determined half run to grab it before anyone else? Well this amazing jumper had that effect on me. I love that the sequins are velvet on one side, creating this luscious, matte effect, and the slick and shiny reverse side catches any light, taking this cropped jumper from casual to glamorous.

I paired this with black jeans and some patent leather heels for a sophisticated night look that is comfortable and warm for this chilly winter.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jumper – Maurie and Eve

Jeans – Rollas

Shoes – Marco Gianni

Sunday Comfort

 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!

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.
