you should have known by now you were on my list

Some stuff I have lying around. I really want to wear these leather shorts, but I can't find a tailor who has the right machine to hem them up for me :(

simple pleasures, white and demin

Loving the idea of it getting warm enough to wear white singlets and demin shorts and go to the beach again! And more kitties of course.

You can find all of these photos on my We Heart It page.

cougar

(thrifted top, watch and leopard print skirt, Wittner heels)

I swear I didn't mean to dress like a cougar today, but, you know, whatever.

pink pants

(Valleygirl pink pants and sunglasses, thrifted top and satchel, Jessica Simpson Dany heels, Sportsgirl agate necklace)

I bought these pants with the intention of slashing them off into shorts. Decided I may as well wear them as pants at least once.

Are you planning on wearing the coloured pant trend this season?

blonde


So I decided to go and get my DIY balayage lightened up professionally. Disappointingly, no one at work even noticed. I thought is was a big change but obviously not so much....

black platform heels

(Topshop podium cross over platforms)

Help me! I'm looking for a pair of black strappy heels with massive platforms (like 2 inches) and thick, rounded heels (like 5-6 inches). Do you know of any? Link me in the comments if you do :)

I've been looking for one of these for ages, yays!

green clutch

(Valleygirl shaggy sweater and sunglasses, Myer singlet, H&M jeggings, thrifted clutch)

I've been wanting a big bright envelope clutch for a long time so this one was a no brainer when I spotted it at a local Vinnies for $7. I'm still on the hunt for even better and bigger ones, but it's always nice to remember that you can sometimes find gorgeous leather bags and clutches in op shops for next to nothing. I guess that's why I have trouble with spending up big on new leather bags, because I've found so many nice ones while thrifting.

rainbows, hipsters, bikinis

It is seriously surprising how many rainbow pictures I inadvertently collect. Apparently I am pretty passionate about rainbows, if only I could somehow turn that into a career...

pretrending Summer's here

(Big W cropped top, Strawberry denim shorts, Valleygirl sunglasses)

Today: walks in the bush in surprisingly warm weather and chicken and avocado sandwiches followed by caramel mud cake. Currently, heading to Mt Ainslie to photograph the sunset.

blush sweater neon quilt bag

(thrifted everything)

I can't wait till the weather is nice enough to do jumpers and shorts, one of my very favourite looks!

bib necklace

Sportsgirl airy mesh sweater in mint, Forever 21 (I think) necklace.

I so wish I could go back to F21 for all the fun cheap accessories!

red and nude

(Heels: Wittner Sunshine and Target)

Sex bomb and au natural, the two contrasting personalities of my feet! How awkward that they are in the same room together...

Josie sheer shirt


So I know I've been going on waaay too much about Sportsgirl, but I kind of have to have anything that's aqua. At this point that's probably not much of a surprise...

Here I am wearing aqua shorts
aqua nail polish
aqua gladiator sandals
aqua hair
more aqua shorts
my aqua belt
my aqua, pink and purple raincoat
and
posing in front of my favourite aqua wall.

So, obviously I'm pretty keen to pick up this floaty sheer shirt that is not only aqua, but kind of reminiscent of a cape. I think I'll try it first with my leather skirt or denim shorts.

Do you have a favourite colour to wear?

glitter, mist , rumi, gaga



Here's some of the shots that inspired my denim shirt and mist-related post below. Also getting very excited today as the temperature is above 20 for the first time in months. I'm so gearing up for Summer. Loose short shorts and tees, and maybe some lighter locks on the way.

denim shirt and fog



(thrifted denim shirt and black skirt, Target nude snakeskin pumps)

I've been wanting to take photos in the fog all Winter, but I never got around to it until this week. It wasn't even that good of a fog, but the good fog only comes out really early, and it's basically impossible to predict. Anywho, I wore this thoroughly 90s homage of an outfit to work yesterday. I even sported maroon nails, which I know is totally normal but I've just never really gotten into it. I'm a complete convert now but. The nude heels were on sale at Target, and I'm just so into the way they make your legs go on forever. Need more nude heels!

shaggy sweater




(Valleygirl shaggy sweater and sunnies, vintage shorts)

My baggy sweater addiction won't seem to go away! You may have noticed that I sneakily aquired the Sportsgirl sweater that I had vowed to wait a while to buy (I'm wearing it in the vlog below). But I got it in a flash online sale! It's ok. It's totally fine.

Anyway, I digress. This shaggy sweater is another new addition, I love the short front and long back, and the close-fitting sleeves versus the wide body. Worn here with my vintage aqua shorts found in New York and only recently taken-up.
