JW Anderson x UNIQLO

Happy Friday Guys!

I am so excited to share with you today some of my favourite pieces from the much anticipated collaboration between JW Anderson x UNIQLO. This is the second collaboration between the designer and UNIQLO and it absolutely delivered, exceeding all expectations. I couldn’t stray from my love of cream, feminine tops, so this first pick was easy. Pairing it back with a simple cream denim jean and gold details, it is the perfect weekend outfit. The second outfit I went with was this super chic, light-weight pale pink shirt. The bell sleeve detailing and collar frills made for the perfect addition to my wardrobe. I paired the look back with a tie up navy blue trouser, but would love to try styling it with a mini skirt too!

What are your picks from the collection? I would love to know, let me know below

National Academy of Beauty

At the end of last year my gal pal Kristy and I had the absolute pleasure of checking out all that the National Academy of Beauty has to offer. The Academy has a wide variety of training services, including Advanced Diploma Qualifications. The Academy is a well-known industry leader that focuses on quality education and facilities. The services focus on hands-on practical experience and are taught by highly educated and experienced trainers. 

Lime Green

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I spent the weekend catching up on work, furniture shopping with my best friend and sipping soy lattes at various cafes around Melbourne.

The LV belt is a recent addition to my wardrobe and I really love pairing it back with super easy/cheap basics, like this lime green mens tee from H&M and the vintage trousers I literally wear every single day (see here for details). Also, I recently added a little extra colour to my hair. I told my one and only hairdresser (Michelle from Rubi Hair Melbourne – Richmond Salon – she is literally the best just FYI), that I wanted to look like I’d spent some time in the sun and definitely not at a hair salon, and she literally did just that. She is amaze and you all should go to her ASAP for all your hair requirements – just sayin’.

Red Stripes

Because you all loved this outfit so much on Instagram, I figured I should probably do a little post on it. I am always a huge fan of striped shirts, particularly when they are red. I think I have about 5 shirts that are almost identical to this one now, but I really loved the lux-satin feel to this one, so figured it was a wardrobe necessity. I got it from Zara about a week ago, but also linked a few slightly nicer/more expensive options below. The pants are vintage and by vintage I mean, I found them in my mums wardrobe… they are from JAG and she told me she bought them 30 years ago, when she was about my age – cool huh? I obviously couldn’t find the exact same ones… but found a few similar ones below too. The closest I could find are these ones from Uniqlo. They are super affordable too! 

Picnic By The River

Picnic by the river at Lindenderry Estate in Red Hill.
We spent the afternoon sipping Moscato, grazing and enjoying the sunshine. The food here is simply divine and has totally exceeded all our expectations.

The top I wore for the picnic is from MLM and the skirt is from Elka Collective but unfortunately neither are available anymore, so I have linked a few similar options below!

2017 has been the year of colour and more specifically the year where red became the new black. Finishing off the year with a red hot bang I plan to bring in the new year in a little red number, drinking far too much champagne on my balcony with friends. You can shop all my favourites at SHOPBOP here and don’t forget, they still have their amazing sale running, which you can check out here

 

The Vintage Leather Satchel You Need Right Now

Today I wanted to share with you a vintage-inspired leather bag brand I have recently discovered called Beara Beara.

Having always loved the feel of vintage-inspired bags and satchels, this stunning piece from Beara Beara is no different. With an incredibly inspiring story behind the brand, this truly is a leather bag brand to know. Beara Beara offers a wide range of high quality pieces, with an obvious attention to detail and craftsmanship like no other. The brands strong British influence is obvious in all the design elements and the affordable price tag makes it an easy pick. I was interested to learn about how the brand remains unique in a world where high-street fashion reigns, but by sourcing vintage materials and keeping a close tie to their connection to Bolivia (where the brand originated), they are able to create a point of difference in a market place where quality isn’t always given first priority. Beara Beara creates for the people who value quality, design & craftsmanship over fast fashion and with this in mind, they have established a very well respected company.

Although always a jeans over everything kind of gal, I have recently gotten right around trouser pants – particularly anything in of the beige/camel/cream/white variety. I’ve been eyeing off almost every single pair available on SHOPBOP right now, I especially love these ones from Fame & Partners.

Let me know below what you can’t get enough of right now!
