Spring is among us, and what better way to celebrate that by wearing… black! I know what you’re all thinking… that it’s not the most spring-appropriate colour, but I’ve been dying to wear this top and now that it’s warming up I can actually wear it without having to wear anything on top! Of course I bring a blazer “just in case”, but it has been so free-ing to wear some shorter sleeve shirts. And this one in particular I love the bell sleeve detail that I’m still not sick of, and I can actually finally wear it without having to hide the sleeves under a blazer!
Oh and did I mention this was my Balenciaga bag’s first big day out? Oh yes, it was. And she was perfect. Can you believe that inside that bag right now is actually a 13 inch macbook pro! Such an amazingly functional and rocker chic bag, I can help but feel cool everytime I wear her!
So I never thought I would be a fan of straight leg jeans… But the obsession is real guys! This actually isn’t my favourite pair, but it’s still amazing nonetheless. Probably the closest I could get to the vintage Levis 501, and so hard to believe they were from ASOS! I’ve folded the hem to make them more suitable for my petite frame, but I actually also really like the effect. I’m thinking about fraying the hem, but then decided against it because the fold-up hem has also been trending lately! They’re an authentic vintage style in that they have a light acid wash to them, and made of that thick stiff denim. If I hadn’t bought it myself, I woulds struggle to believe that they’re truly not vintage! But in saying that, they aren’t as comfortable as the topshop straight-leg jeans I hauled in my previous youtube video, but if you’re looking for a pair thats easily accessible, check them out on ASOS!
So I have to apologise, the past two weeks got pretty busy unfortunately. I’m currently in Brisbane and boy, is it warm. Maybe warm would not be the most accurate word, but lets admit it, 20 degrees is not exactly cold either. A lot of people hate the cold, but I’m actually not one to shy away from it (I’ll take it over 40 degree weather any day of the week!). But knowing that it’ll only be a few more weeks of “winter” kinda breaks my heart a little. I love perfect chill to inspire a warm cup of milo and a movie. I like the cool air that makes you question whether you’ve got enough layers on when you go outside. And I like the overcast winter day that make for perfect softbox lighting for photos.
But unfortunately this might be my last real winter, as I’ll be moving to Brisbane next year. Maybe I’ll get the odd 15 degree day, but lets be honest I wont be able to wear those thick coats anymore. Sad times. However, today is not that day. In fact, it is a beautiful sunny weather here in Brisbane so here is my warm winter outfit! The peach floral print and light denim keeps things fresh, with a touch of black leather to remind us it’s still cold out.
The Flared jeans has returned, and it’s strong. Although most people associate Flares with 70’s vibe, for me I can finally re-live my teenage years in better style! haha. I remember wearing flared jeans/bell bottoms to death almost 10 years ago. Of course back then I wasn’t gun-hoe on heels so I always wore them with the biggest pair of skater converse you could buy.
I love that the trend has finally returned, and I purchased this pair from Asos. If you follow me on Youtube you would have seen me haul them a few months ago, but I think it’s the perfect mid-washed blue colour, with just the right amount of distressing. I cant wait to show you guys more ways to style this, in particular I think it would look amazing with a black berret/newsboy cap to really play on the 70’s flared vibe.
So I have finally got around to sharing this outfit post with you guys. I love this knit Coord from Sportsgirl. I first saw it in Zara in a gorgeous mottled grey colour, and I just loved how bloggers/stylists wore it with shoes for that cool/comfy vibe. Unfortunately it was completely sold out by the time I had visited Zara, but managed to stumble upon this in Sportsgirl. Its an amazing spring piece, but now that it’s cooler I’ve styled it with this plush longline coat from Missguided. Paired with some mules and the ever gorgeous Chanel mini, I just felt it was a match made.
Now the top is actually much longer than pictured here, and given I’m short I’ve styled it by tucking it into the waist. I also love how the two pieces can be styled individually – the knit culottes in particular are so comfy and very easily styled!
