Desperately craving warmer days, but will instead settle for glimpses of Melbourne’s winter sun. I am currently in the process of planning a few little trips over the next couple of months so thought I would test out this little Faithfull the brand dress that I will most definitely be taking with me… The pattern and cut are just so flattering, I absolutely lovvvvveeee. I chucked my old faithful Acne cardi over the top because, Melbourne and one of my favourite basket bags from Polish brand Roboty Reczne.
Never not without my Reid Cycles vintage bike, as its the perfect way to get from A to B. Oh and I chose the sage colour because it goes with all my outfits haha #InstaLife #WishIWasKidding
With Autumn well underway here in Melbourne, I am loving the injection of colour into my wardrobe. Although I can never go past red, as you probably already know – I am also getting right around lime green, royal/navy blues and soon maybe even lilac – although at where it stands, that one is still a maybe. Either way, I’ve never really shied away from red and this season is no different. With the new UNIQLO x Ines De La Frassange collection dropping in select stores and online, my picks were anything red, striped, spotted and chic… Which was, well, practically the entire collection, so picking a few favourites turned out to be quite the challenge, but none the less, here were my favourites.
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE! So before I totally bid fair well to the summer that was, I wanted to share with you a few sneaky summer snaps featuring a recent fave, Peony Swimwear. Although having only somewhat recently acquainted myself with the boutique Australian swimwear label, I kind of can’t get enough of it, like for real though. From their pastel shades and dreamy patterns to the high quality fabric and flawless fit, this brand is literally all I have ever wanted in swimwear and some. Plus, I’m not even going to re-mention the name, I mean, Peony? Please, only like my favourite flower second to roses (just FYI…). But anyways, you totally get it – this brand is everything.
There isn’t a lot I like about winter. Sure the occasional hot cocoa and movie in bed thing isn’t all bad, but when it comes to living life to its absolute fullest, I am a summer kind-of-gal. All that frolicking in summertime sunshine, beach days, long warm nights, balcony hangs and sangria moments are literally what I live for. For realz. HOWEVER the one redeeming factor that makes me ever so slightly (…and I mean slightly…) excited for the temperature to drop is the winter-FASHUN. #AmIRightLadies?! I mean the whole over-the-knee boot, oversized wooly knit thing and rotating trench coat situation is what FASHUN dreams are made of.
Inspired by the light linen, denim-cut-offs trend this summer, I recreated my favourite Sunday-afternoon-summer-look using pieces from Target’s new summer range. This is my ultimate Sunday-wear outfit. Paired with white sneakers and a take-away coffee in the morning, and dressed up with a strappy black heel, a clutch and a cocktail for the evening, this is an outfit I will quite literally live in. I opted for a monochromatic look, and added a touch of blush (duh!) with my neck ribbon (duh!) and nail polish. As for the perfectly blush coloured roses? Total STEAL, I got 5 bunches for $5 at the Camberwell Market yesterday morning. I know right, what even?
Drinking mostly Iced Kona coffee’s from Island Vintage Coffee and living in mostly crinkled silk and light linen pieces, my Honolulu uniform mainly consists of silky slip dresses in burgundy and blush, RayBans, a black purse and white sneakers or tasseled holiday-inspired flats. A true big-city girl at heart, it is near impossible to totally abandon all sartorial habits, and thus the idea of prancing around in bikinis all day seemed entirely unattainable. I instead opted for lighter materials and ditched my pointy-black-heeled booties for a more holiday-appropriate shoe. In other news, I can’t stop/won’t stop tying multiple black ribbons around my neck and turning them into chokers. I fear the Island has only further fueled my obsession. I regret nothing.
