We took these snaps today somewhere in between sipping on skinny capps at The Kitchen @ Weylandts (future-apartments-goals – for real though) and strolling through Abbotsford in the very welcomed almost spring sun. Albeit prematurely, I couldn’t help but slip into a new favourite slip top, a slightly oversized pinstripe blazer and some old school light-wash Levis. All in all, an absolutely splendid Sunday.
Having always loved to take photos, be in photos or even just be around when photos are happening, it was no surprise that I found myself taking photos (albeit primarily of myself) for a living, what was a surprise though is that between all the content production, collaborations, photoshoots and I guess really what should actually be referred to as ‘work’ (although it never really feels that way), I sometimes forget to take photos – just for the sake of taking photos! You know, the kind of shots you take purely for memories or just because. So with a sudden urge to get back into taking photos just because – I thought I’d bring around a disposable camera with me for a week to encourage me to take more photos just for fun! Plus, a disposable camera felt so very fitting as when I was a kid I could barely get enough of them. I would quite literally bring a disposable camera to school/camp/any-somewhat-social-activity-happening-in-the-life-of-a-10-year-old and the spend the following week begging my mum to go get it developed ASAP. Ironically, a lot of the photos I took were of myself all dressed up in different outfits I had put together using clothes from my mums wardrobe or clothes that I had made – but that is a story for another day. So anyways, here you have it – my week from the eyes of a disposable camera. The quality is kind of questionable, compared to the usual DSLR and I chose not to edit or process any of the photos, which again I thought was a nice change from my more curated content.
As the weather begins to [far-too-quickly] drop in Melbourne, I wanted to share with you a piece from UNIQLO that I have been wearing to help keep warm. Apart from being a super chic fashion item available in literally every single colour imaginable, the Ultra Light Down Jacket is water repellant and surprisingly really warm. I say surprisingly as it actually doesn’t feel overly thick! Also, as an aside, it comes with a little compact pouch that you can squeeze the entire jacket into! So it is super easy to transport in your handbag – so clever! Anyways, to say that I am a fan would probably be an understatement – I had a wedding in the Yarra Valley this weekend and barely took this jacket off!
Having [not-so-quietly] been obsessed with GRANA for some time now, I really cannot rave about their high-quality/crazy-reasonable-prices enough. Whether it is linen, cotton, silk or cashmere I am after, I continuously tend to look no further than GRANA. With high quality basics, such as tees and easy to layer tops, taking up a huge chunk of my wardrobe, I really do like to have heaps of options, colours and styles ready to go and GRANA makes this super easy. For most of my outfits, I always start with a base, usually being some comfortable denim, with a raw hem and cut that suits my mood of the day. I then add a basic top, whether this be a tee, silk cami or shirt, more often than not it is GRANA. From here I build up the outfit, adding accessories and jewellery that suits my vibe for the day or works for the activities and things I’ll be doing that day.
Having only recently properly acquainted myself with the Melbourne based label ELKA COLLECTIVE, I’ve been really getting right around their AW17 collection this season. With a super relaxed, somewhat feminine and ridiculously wearable aesthetic to all their items, their collection has managed to form quite a base for my Autumn wardrobe. I have found their clothes to be super transeasonal-friendly, with items that can easily be worn on hotter or cooler days, depending how you choose to style them.
With a personal style I would describe as ‘kind-of casual, definitely not fancy’, I, perhaps not surprisingly, don’t often find myself wearing a ‘fancier’ type of dress. Ya know the kind of fancy dress one wears with a pair of stilettos, pretty dangling earrings and a fresh spray tan… You see it’s not that I don’t like this style of dressing, it is more so that whenever there is an event that may warrant this type of look, I somewhat conveniently always air on the side of casual and somehow still end up draped in oversized cardigans and denim… I guess we all have our thing. But truth be known, the main and most likely key reason I usually always rock up way to casual to, well everything – is that I really just don’t own those fancier kind-of-clothes. That and well, I guess I do feel more comfortable dressing casual, but ya know sometimes it is nice to feel fancy once in a while too. So I think I may have found the solution for myself and hopefully anyone else who is in a similar fashunn situation… Here we go, are you ready for it? Brace yourself… Okay so the answer is – GLAMCORNER. Yep, there you have it. A RENT, WEAR, RETURN designer dress hiring service with over 2000 + dresses on offer to RENT. So pretty much you don’t actually need to ever OWN any of the fancy clothes to feel fancy, you can just rent them for the night or the week or whatever you need really. It is seriously that easy!
With Christmas right around the corner, getting all my Christmas presents sorted for my closest friends and family is my number one priority. For all the lovely ladies in my life, who are far too fabulous to receive anything but an absolutely amazing gift, I always opt to give them a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers. Having always loved fresh flowers for as long as I can remember, I truly believe there is nothing more special and personalised than receiving a beautiful bouquet of florals. Aside from brightening up your day, they add a certain warmth and air of happiness to any room. This year I will be purchasing said flowers from the beautiful team at Interflora Australia. Apart from offering a wide range of stunning Christmas-inspired collections, their quality, same-day delivery and customer service is like no other.
