Monday again! Welcome to a brand new week. Hope everybody had a fabulous weekend! 
As I type this I am desperately trying to watch the VMA’s live online which is proving to be very difficult and quite annoying. I just wanna see Bey!!*

Anyway, moving on! Today’s outfit features my new go to black skirt. I only recently realised that there was a gap in my wardrobe where a black skirt was supposed to be. How did I not have a plain black skirt in my wardrobe?! The problem has now been resolved with this asymmetrical skirt by Zalora. I love how the longer length is balanced out with a front split (and did I mention it is under $20!). You will definitely be seeing a lot more of this one!


*UPDATE: I watched it. She killed it!

Just a quick update today as I have pretty much had the busiest weekend ever and my eyes are struggling to stay open as I type! Not only did I have to fit in my social engagements (priorities!), but I also spent all day Saturday and Sunday at the Polka Dot Vintage Markets selling my vintage collection.

This was an outfit from last weekend. I had a bit of a light bulb moment when getting ready after discarding yet another crop top and jean combo due to inappropriate belly exposure. Why not add a hint of lace to cover the gap? Genius, right?! So that’s exactly what I did!
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! Off to bed for me.. see you soon Monday!

Denim on denim has almost become a fashion lover’s style staple these days. Gone are the days where wearing double anything was considered a fashion faux pas, and I couldn’t be happier.
I love a good matching outfit (see the evidence here and here!) and matching denim with denim is no exception! 
These denim jeans from ASOS are a recent purchase and I have to say one of the most comfortable pairs of jeans I own. I could practically wear them every day. (Ok, so I kind of do!) I wore them with this H and M shirt that I picked up at a recent blogger garage sale for $2! The best two dollars I’ve ever spent, I reckon!

What do you think? Do you dare to double up your denim?

I picked up this jacket recently from Valley Girl, of all places. The stunning blue colour caught my eye and although I did hesitate slightly before purchasing (I wondered how much wear I would get from a baby blue leather jacket!) I now know I definitely made the right choice. It has slotted into my wardrobe perfectly, teaming nicely with the abundance of pastels I have and of course everything black and white!!

Another gloriously sunny Spring Winter day here in Perth today and it looks like it is going to stay that way for the weekend. Thank you weather gods!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday! What are your plans for the weekend??

My very first pair of One Teaspoon shorts.. I felt a little bit like a kid at Christmas when I finally received these the other week!! The casual, effortless and comfy (don’t forget comfy!) ‘Bandits‘ have been around for a while and are THE ultimate Summer* short (and if I had my way Winter short too!) 

In an attempt to make denim shorts a little more Winter friendly, I teamed them with an over the knee boot, leaving minimal leg exposed for the cold air to attack, add to that a few extra layers and guess what? It worked! I was warm!** 

Shorts: the new Winter staple!?!

*Summer side note: 119 days to go! 

 **It may have also had something to do with the fact that 20 degree sunny days are fairly common in the middle of Winter for Perth so I probably could have worn less than this and still been quite warm!!

Can you believe it is Friday already?! Not that I’m complaining or anything.. Fridays are the best! The anticipation of the weekend to come is enough to put anyone in a good mood.

This outfit was from a couple of weekends ago, taken on the way to my local pub (the perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon, don’t you agree?) 
Being a Sunday comfort was key, because let’s face it Sundays are made for relaxing, so out came my Cameo pants (actually come to think of it last time I wore them it was a Sunday too!) I added some heels to give the illusion of effort (and well, because I am ridiculously short!) and my Sunday style was complete.  

What do you think? What’s your ultimate Sunday style outfit?

Monday : 1, Emily : 0.
What a great start to the week… So far today my computer has crashed four five times. I’m not sure if it is just feeling the Monday vibe (like most of us) or if this is going to be it’s new, permanent state of being! Whatever it is, it’s certainly made me realise just how much I rely on my computer on a day to day basis. I probably spend more time on my computer than I do doing anything else which is a little bit of a scary thought! 
In order to get this post up, I have had to resort to handwriting it out and hoping my computer will stay on long enough for me to quickly type it in when it’s done.*
Oh and did I mention my husband just rang to say I left my car keys in his car.. better make that 2-nil, Monday!
 
Anyway moving on, without pointing out the fact that I am wearing another midi skirt, (did anybody notice?!) I would just like to say that this sequin skirt was an absolute steal from Dotti (and is now even more of a bargain at just $9.95!) It’s a really great fit and it is covered in sequins, what more could you possibly want from a skirt?! 

I hope everyone’s Monday is going a little better than mine!

Another day another midi skirt… Obsessed much?!
I may have accidentally purchased this skirt in another colour. Oopsy.
In my defense though, the pink version was on sale and like I said before, I had been searching for the perfect full midi skirt for a while! If you are on to a good thing…
I generally wear a midi skirt with a cropped, fitted top but this time I styled it a little bit differently. (You know, to make it seem like a different skirt!)
 I kind of like the oversized, slouchy feel of this outfit. Although it is easy to look swamped when wearing baggy items together, I feel like by adding heels and slightly tucking the jumper in, it gives it less of a bulky look.
What do you think? How do you wear your midi skirt?

Reason number 3476 why I hate Winter: The Flu. 
A sore throat that never goes away, a nose that drips constantly, a sick child that coughs so much she vomits (all through the night!) Yep, Winter is officially flu season and it is very much alive in this household. I have been through a whole box of tissues today alone and my nose is still running.. Urghh! 

In an attempt to fight through the sickness haze and ‘look on the bright side’, I have had a think about some of the things I actually like about Winter. (I got stuck at three.) Coming in at the top of my rather dismal list though, is the coat. 
I try to stick to a classic style when it comes to coats, as there are only limited occasions to wear them through out the year (in this particular climate, anyway!) So, a coat that can last through multiple Winters is a must. I snapped this ASOS coat up on sale a few weeks ago and am quite happy about it! It’s great fit and perfect neutral colour means it will definitely be around to see me through the next few Winters, at least!  

Now if you’ll excuse me I must head out for some more tissues…
