Honestly guys, I never know what to write in my blog posts sometimes. I’m such a visual person, and I’ve always been the type to just look at pictures in magazines and skip the writing. Occasionally, I feel like when I “blog” on my posts, they’re always just fillers. But that’s not what I really want to do today. Although pictures are served to attract the viewer, when it comes down to the nitty gritty, it’s the words and the writing allows you to really get to know the person. If someone takes the 5 minutes out of their day to read the writing on a blog post, then honestly I’m both impressed and honoured!
I remember this day because it was mothers day. Yes I know, it means the photo is a bit “late” but I think my posts will just tend to be 1 month late as I want to be shooting 1 month ahead… does that make sense? Maybe not.
I guess reflecting on this day it was the first day that my mum and sister had moved to Adelaide. To fill you in if you’re curious – I am the eldest of 5 kids, and up until now I had moved to Adelaide to be with my 3 brothers who are currently studying, and shoulder the costs of basically their board and lodging. However after being accepted into the QLD GP training program, I’ll be moving interstate and my family took this as an opportunity to be together again in one state as a family. Which meant mum & sis finally moving to Adelaide.
Anyways, long story short, it was the first mother’s day we had spent together as a family in many many years, and it was good. We took her out to Argo on the Parade which luckily at the time we went wasnt too busy, and it was just genuinely nice to be out as a family.
So I guess to make this post slightly relevant to the outfit, can you tell that I’m obsessed with the this rich emerald green colour? I love that my earrings, my top and even my pouf key ring from sportsgirl all match! haha. Anyways in this outfit I’ve teamed up my paperbag chinos from dotti that I normally wear for work with something more fun and flirty like this flare sleeve top from Zara. I know its not the most autumn/winter appropriate top, but throw a coat over it and you can make ANYTHING winter appropriate. Am I right? I love the colour palette of this look, I just find they blend so harmoniously and effortlessly.
Long Cardigan – Open Closet Vest – ASOS Top – T-shirt Bar Boyfriend Jeans – Target Shoes – Newlook (via ASOS) Bag – LV Speedy B 30 Mono
This is an outfit I wore a few weeks ago, when the weather was cooling down. This outfit was so comfortable, I was able to have the long cardigan coat which kept me warm outside, and the vest keeps me just warm enough indoors. Layering is easily my favourite kind of style, but sometimes it can be tedious when trying to stop the overbulking.
As a general rule, when in doubt start with the basics like a simple t-shirt and jeans. Then usually go for a vest or small jacket, and on top of that a coat. Try mix different textures and thickness of the material to prevent over bulking. It’s also not a bad idea to have a belt handing for cinching if the style loses shape.
Layering should be fun, and it’s definately something I enjoy. Dont be afraid to mix different prints, different shades, different textures.
Anyways, 2 more days until officially back at word and I’m certainly not looking forward to it. I hate that post-holiday slum prior to going back to work. It’s the absolute worst… 🙁
Hi everyone so just wanted to accompany my video with a blog post with pics. So as you all know, I’m back in Australia but i’m still uploading videos I filmed in the philippines so that I have something to upload weekly.
So now that that’s cleared up, I’m actually in the middle of doing two assignments both due this friday, but what the heck. I figured this could be a good “study break”. haha.
if you havent seen the YT video here it is!
And here are some outfit pictures (courtesy of my lovely little brother – not the one shown here).

Notice the shoe change? I always bring with me some spare flats for when I’m out walking for a while!
Remind me to do a haul?
Anyways that’s all. Hope you guys enjoyed the pics, sorry it’s pic heavy but I figured almost everyone’s got broadband now-a-days right? haha.
So I’ve been absolutely addicted to instagram since getting my new phone and I just wanted to remind those who dont know yet that I HAVE INSTAGRAM! A lot of people have been asking me in the past if I had instagram and what my username was so here it is: it’s @heyyy_june
If you have instagram please follow me especially if you’re interested in outfit of the days and what not as it’s super easy to post on there. Ofcourse the pictures will not be the best of quality, but it’s so much fun 😀
Or if you dont have instagram, you can view my pics on the web here: http://instajelly.com/heyyy_june
So that was basically a recap of my week in instagram pics. Just packing as we speak for my connecting flight back home and back to reality (aka uni. ugh.) and I’m dreading it terribly. Just dont ever want tomorrow to come 🙁
I’m also currently uploading a Video at the moment (hint: it’s a TAG vid involving my brother) and whilst on the topic of videos I actually just wanted to let you guys know that you should start expecting my video numbers to go down significantly in the upcoming months. I have filmed quite a few videos I still havent edited so hopefully I can edit them and schedule them so it will not feel like I’ve gone MIA completely, but those who read my blog will know that is happening. Basically, I feel like I’m clutching at straws with time management and with this almost 2weeks leave I’ve taken from uni for the funeral, I have a tonne of uni work to do and class time to make up (mostly over my weekends too). oh fun.
But yes, thats reality of things. And as I end this post to continue my packing, I will leave you with some horrible webcam pics that my brother and I took at the airport on my bday prior to leaving Australia. (Just found them on my computer – honestly forgot about them already!)
Hi Everyone I’ve just returned from the provinces for my grandmother’s funeral. I do want to dedicate a separate post for her but I guess now is not the right time. Overall, the trip was nice and I was able to finally get closure. However I do still feel like it’s unreal somewhat, and I have to keep reminding myself that she really is gone.
I do have some videos that I would like to edit and have up so stay tuned for that, but for now I figured that easiest thing to update would be this blog with an outfit post that I wore just the other day. Not much to say about this outfit but I am absolutely loving these faux-leather shorts from newlook that I was lucky to find in the kids section. I’m telling y’all, dont knock it until you try it. I usually find my wonderfully form-flattering clothing pieces from the kids section, so definately hit it up! Also would like to thank my beautiful little sister (who is only just 11yo) for taking these lovely pics. Thanks babygirl <3
So on with the pictures!
