You will no doubt soon be sick of hearing it, but Spring is here!
The only reason I bring it up now (as I look out the window at my broken back fence that was blown down in last night’s storm!) is because this top by Mad Love the Label has Spring written all over it (which surprisingly looks just like leopard print!) The open back and slouch style is the ultimate!
I got a little excited a few weeks ago, at the first sign of sunny weather, and went straight for the shorts but a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans or a crisp white pair of pants would work just as well with this style.
Now all we need is for the weather gods to hurry up and get the memo..
Wearing: Mink Pink Top, Hello Parry Skirt, Betts Boots – sold out (similar here and here), French Connection Bag (similar here)
Every time I wear something by Mink Pink I am transported back to the 90’s.
Being an awkward teenager I went through many (questionable!) fashion stages in the nineties, one of those of course was the ‘Clueless’ phase. My favourite fashion moment of this time was a red, black and white tartan shift dress that I wore with knee high socks. I wore it a lot. I even changed up the knee high socks occasionaly switching from black to white. It was also right around the time I decided I wanted to become a fashion designer and the first piece I ‘designed’ (never quite made it to production!) was a purple cropped t-shirt with a giant velvet, burgundy heart in the front. (Another nod to the iconic movie!)
Although this top by Mink Pink is clearly not influenced by clueless, the 90’s vibe is still strong! I love the high neck and sleeveless style and well, leopard print is my favourite colour. I styled it with a bright skater skirt to complete my trip down memory lane. All that’s missing is the knee highs!
What is your favourite fashion moment of the 90’s?
Walking through Myer the other day I noticed a label I hadn’t seen before, Saints + Secrets. I did a double take when I saw this top even though my internal finance department screamed at me to keep walking (I had just been to the new Zara store opening!). My love of lace got the better of me and a purchase was made. I love how the sex appeal of the top is balanced out with the longer sleeves and the lace detailing is just perfection!
I’m quite certain that I made the right decision with this purchase. You can’t go wrong with black and lace, right? I even think my nerdy inner bean counter would agree!

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!
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 jeansfrom ASOSare 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?
