COAT: Madison Square Clothing – St Frock // TOP: Kookai // PANTS: Cmeo Collective – Saint Bowery // SHOES: Skin Shoes – check site for stockists

Okay, so I think I’ve finally solved my “I can’t wear any black because I have a white cat” problem for this Winter. I came across the ‘Brixton Coat’ by Madison Square Clothing on St Frock and knew that this was going to be an absolute fav this winter!! So, I know that it doesn’t get ice cold here in Melbourne but it feels freezing most days to me and this coat is perfect for layering knit upon knit to feel snuggly warm :)

One of my favourite things to do the past few weeks is wear white on the colder days. I’m loving white so much because it seems to brighten my day and I feel like I’m back in summer, however I know that when I’m freezing cold in all my white summer pieces that it isn’t ideal. I’d thought about getting a white coat many times but knew that it was going to get dirty fast – so I was definitely going to avoid that. Then, I have my problem of having a white cat so a black coat is just totally out of the question for me! This coat has come like a blessing to me because my grey coat and I have just been taking on the town everyday but it feels great that I can now mix it up.

I absolutely adore the check pattern and think it’s a beautiful statement piece for this Winter. Plus, it’s under a $100!! Score!

What’s your favourite coat you’ve got for this Winter?

HOW TO TAKE A LOOK FROM DAY TO NIGHT

KNIT: Cotton Co // JACKET: Madison Square // PANTS: Boohoo // FLATS: Wittner // HEELS: Skin Shoes – check website for stockists

Okay, let’s just take a moment to absolutely fall in love with these shoes…

I thought I’d show how shoes can make such a difference with an outfit and use two of my favourite pairs to take a look from day to night. My outfit is a simple black & khaki number that I’m absolutely adoring at the moment. These pants were just $50 from Boohoo and are in such good shape after a few washes! I know that some people haven’t had much luck when buying off Boohoo but these pants are stand-outs and I’m very tempted to try some others out from there.

So, when it’s a beautiful day like today or absolutely pouring outside, I love to be comfortable and be able to walk fast at any moment. I’m honestly just one of those people who can’t walk slow hehe. These shoes are my everyday go-to flats at the moment and I think they will stick around for my whole winter. I usually buy a pair of boots from Wittner every year but decided to go for the flat this year and I’m so happy I did. Wittner’s shoes last a lifetime and I will still wear my shoes that I bought over 3 years ago now – great investment in my books :)
5 out of the 7 days I am wearing these beauties because they go with absolutely everything and are so easy to run around in – especially if I’m running lots of errands.

The easiest way to take my day look to night time is by adding a pop of colour and a hot pair of shoes. Now, I’ve said it before, but these shoes are HOT TO TROT. I am genuinely obsessed with the colour and think that these shoes are designed to be made with khaki for this winter season. I kept saying to my photographer how hot these shoes looked with the khaki pants and these was no doubt that he agreed.

With both of these shoes, I feel like I can tackle the world with whatever comes at me. I can be ready to run a mile and a tonne of errands in the flats or be dinner-date ready with these gorgeous heels. As long as I have both these pairs in my bag, I am all good.

What do you think of my transition from day to night? What’s your favourite way to take a look from day to night?

JUMPER: C/MEO Collective // JEANS: C/MEO Collective // SHOES: Skin Shoes

You guys know that I love to keep things simple when I put my outfits together and it couldn’t get any simpler than this. I’ve taken comfort and warmth to the next level with these wicked C/MEO Collective pieces from the Fashion Bunker. The Fashion Bunker is honestly Australian Fashion Labels heaven with new collections being dropped every few weeks; it genuinely makes it a little hard to save.

I thought I’d share two pieces that go so perfectly hand in hand yet can be used absolutely every day as individual pieces. I’ll start off with saying how incredible this knit is! It’s hard not to wear it every day but luckily camel and grey just don’t go together in my opinion, so my love of camel and grey get equal amounts of days each week. I had my eye on this knit and after a week of thinking endless about it, I had to make it mine. The Fashion Bunker regularly has sales of at least 20% off so I waited for the moment and this jumper became mine. It goes with so many things in my wardrobe and I can’t get over the asymmetric hem as it allows more body to be shown, rather than being hidden by an oversized knit that is not flattering for my shape. Talking about flattering – drop crotch pants aren’t the most flattering things in the world so my key is to wear something like this knit here or a t-shirt than I can tuck in. I am so glad that I bought a smaller size in these because they are quite oversized and this XXS can easily fit an 8! It’s definitely an adjustment wearing drop crotch jeans when you’ve worn skinny jeans all your life but there’s something so edgy about them that I love. The second key to wearing these pants with such a small frame is to show off skin above the waist line and below the ankle line. These pants will make me look shorter than ever if I don’t show any skin between my shoe and the pant so it’s so important that I do that! There are the smallest heel I’ve got, but it’s just enough to make sure that I elongate the body.

I am obsessed with buying the most versatile pieces from The Fashion Bunker. It’s important to stick to a clean colour palette of black, white and other neutrals like grey, camel and blue that you always find hanging around. Other colours date and will go in and out of trend watch every few months! These colours allow for you to keep them in your closet for a while. I think these are two of my favourites at the moment and I can see them hanging around in my wardrobe for a very, very long time!

PS. How amazing is the bambi print on these Skin Shoes? They sit on my shelves at the end of the bed and I just think about when I can wear them with my next outfit!

With Love,

It’s that time of year where we start to get the winter blues and to be honest, I think these are the kind of winter blues I want this year.

There’s no doubt that I love an all black outfit during the winter but I’m feeling a little different this year and want to continue these brighter looks throughout the coming months. To me, there’s nothing more refreshing than a look like this one on a sunny day. My key to wearing this look in the winter is adding a touch of grey. Grey is the perfect colour to give my look a bit more warmth and avoid the “all white” look that isn’t very wintery.

I think grey knits are absolutely beautiful this season and they can easily be paired back with some light denim and white basics like I’ve done here. I’ve honestly bought too many already but they seem to be taking away my winter blues so I really can’t complain. It’s just a little too cold here in Melbourne for my liking at the moment; I’m really not looking forward to the winter weather, but I cannot wait to wear lots of knits and coats! I don’t think I’m the only one who could say they only love winter for the fashion. Who’s with me?

Fashion definitely brightens my day makes the winter blues okay for me!

JUMPSUIT: Seed Heritage // JACKET: Cotton On // SHOES: Windsor Smith // BELT: Asos // BAG: Bardot

Finding a dinner date outfit, dressing up for dinner with the girls or just simply putting a look together under a $100 can always be a task but when I went down to Uni Hill Factory Outlets in Bundoora yesterday, they solved everything for me. I’ve been quite a few times now and I still manage to come out with an awesome bargain every time I go!

Yesterday’s amazing bargains included this gorgeous jumpsuit from Seed Heritage and these wicked heels from Windsor Smith. Can you believe that these two beauties cost me just $55? I managed to score the jumpsuit with an extra 40% off at Seed so it came down to $29.97 and the heels were on sale for $25. Can it get any better?
It’s so great now that Windsor Smith has opened there and more shops just keep on opening!

I chose this khaki jumpsuit as I knew it would be worn a lot this winter. Khaki is one of my big loves this winter season and I will be doing a few more looks on the blog over the new few weeks. At first, I was a bit worried that I might not get any wear out of it over the next few months but I absolutely love how this jumpsuit looks paired with a black jacket or coat. Add some red lips and this jumpsuit is perfect for a night out.

What do you think of khaki this season?

MY AW15 TREND: Grey on Grey

 JUMPER: Country Road // JACKET: Milk & Honey from Myer // PANTS: Witchery // SHOES: Wittner

Now I’m onto the second instalment of my favourite AW trends right now. It almost seems fitting that with the movie release of fifty shades of grey came my obsession with grey on grey but let’s just make it clear that this had nothing to do with that at all – no matter how many people like to joke about it!

I have already bought so many grey things this winter that I actually think it’s becoming a problem. I was a little scared to try grey on grey at first because I just thought it would not work. However, I proved myself wrong and fell in love with mixing greys since. The key to wearing grey on grey is to make sure that I’m wearing different shades. I love to mix lighter shades with a darker coat or  mix different shades of light grey like I am in this outfit. I scored the beautiful Milk & Honey jacket a few weeks ago and it’s honestly so cuddly and warm that I wear it so often! It was only $80 and I wish it was still available so all of you could buy this beautiful piece.
I love pairing grey with black leather at the moment and I’m definitely obsessed with these shoes as well – good job Wittner!

Since my grey pieces in this outfit seemed to sell out so quickly, I thought I’d share some of my favourite grey pieces that are all available under a $100…

Sportsgirl Lightweight Knit – available here
Boohoo Chloe Shawl Cardigan – available here
All About Eve Krystal Cardi – available here
Bardot Lara Long Cardi – available here
Tweet Tweet Fashion Morning Muse Knit – available here

I am absolutely in love with all these pieces at the moment and the two jumpers could easily be paired with the cardigans. My favourite pair would be the Sportsgirl knit under the Bardot cardigan. A match made in heaven!!

Are you loving grey on grey at the moment?

MY AW15 TREND: Tan & Leather

As the long weekend comes to an end, I can’t help but think of a few of my favourite trends at the moment…

KNIT: H&M // SKIRT: Country Road – sold out (available in Caramel here) // SHOES: Nude Footwear // HAT: Dolly Girl

I am absolutely loving these two at the moment. My next few posts are going to cover some massive trends I’m loving for this Autumn Winter season and how I will wear them. Tan is massive right now and if you’ve seen the Cameo jumper I received the other day on my Instagram then you know how obsessed I am with tan at the moment. I scored this knit at H&M last year for just $20! It’s been a stable in my wardrobe ever since and I’m so excited to wear it this season. Tan is a such a great colour as it compliments a natural palette of clothing that includes white, grey, blue denim & black.

When it comes to leather, it can’t get old for me – I absolutely love it! Leather skirts and pants are my go-to on a freezing cold day because nothing can keep you warm like leather can. This skirt is great for a night out or for work during the day! If I remove the hat, I have a perfect outfit for work and then when I’m done for the day, I can put my hat back on to feel a little more casual. I have to mention that this skirt also has pockets. When I was trying it on in the change room, I thought to myself it was pretty cool but as soon as I noticed the pockets I had to make this skirt mine. Although this skirt is currently sold out, it’s available in caramel right now and I think I need it as well. The caramel colour is beautiful for a night out with a white crop top and some nude heels. It’s only $99.95 and is vegan-friendly so you might just see the caramel one pop up on my blog very soon.

Tan and black are like my little power couple perfect for the winter season. I’ve dressed up a little here but it’s so easy to dress this knit down with a pair of white or black skinny jeans, leather pants and converses or ankle boots. I wore this knit the other day with white skinny jeans and some slides and it was absolutely perfect for the mild Autumn days we are having in Melbourne at the moment.

Are you loving tan & leather this season?

MAKING THE MOST OF SUMMER

It’s Autumn here in Melbourne and I think we’re experiencing our last few days of this beautiful warmth before we put the cute tops, shorts and playsuits away for a little while.

PLAYSUIT: St Frock // HAT: St Frock // SHOES: Nude Footwear

I found this stunning playsuit online at St Frock and knew I had to have it with this felt hat! It’s a pity that all these warm days are coming to an end in Australia but those of you over in the northern hemisphere have some beautiful months ahead. This playsuit appealed to me as it was just so damn cute! I love the detailing of the piece with the gorgeous lacework and oversized sleeves. It makes for my perfect little outfit that I think I’ll have to wear out this winter. I decided to pair it with nudes as it softens the look – this beautiful hat from St Frock makes me feel so girly and I’m actually not minding it for once! Add some nude heels and I’ve created a great look for the last few warm days left of Autumn.

What was your favourite look over the summer?

PLAYSUIT: Mahalia Brown – down to $151.92 online! // COAT: Boohoo – down to $32 until midnight!! // SHOES: Nude Footwear

This is possibly one of my favourite photo shoots to date. The sun was shining beautifully through the clouds and we produced some great shots of this beautiful playsuit by Mahalia Brown.

This upcoming Melbourne label features classic designs that are made to flatter the female figure and make us feel proud of our bodies. This playsuit is beautifully made and I love how well it fits – it’s so rare to find a long-sleeved playsuit that doesn’t appear baggy around the arms! I paired it with this gorgeous white duster coat from Boohoo because I’m absolutely loving the all white look at the moment so I just to had to share it with all of you. It’s starting to get pretty chilly here in Melbourne so I am on the hunt for long-sleeved playsuits. I’m starting a new little thing on the blog to share my favourite alternatives to get the look under a $100!

Here are my favourite long sleeve playsuits under $100

From left to right:

Endless Glazes Playsuit in Navy – Pop Cherry Fashion – $50
Black Mesh Cut Out Playsuit – Lucy In The Sky – $50
Ivory Lace Sleeve Playsuit – Lucy In The Sky – $50
Toxic Playsuit Grey – Hello Molly Fashion – $65
Carry Me Home Playsuit – Dolly Girl Fashion – $36

I’m absolutely loving all of these styles for different reasons! Detailed sleeves are absolutely gorgeous and very similar to the playsuit I’m wearing. They add a bit more excitement and I love that in an outfit! I’d rather have details on the clothing than wear accessories any day. The dark florals are absolutely gorgeous and this playsuit is very flattering on the body. Lastly, the v-neck with two of my favourite colours this season – grey & khaki. These colours are going to be taking over my wardrobe and I think they make a big statement wearing them as a singular piece!

Which is your favourite playsuit?
