PUPPY LOVE



I'm gonna keep this short and sweet for ya'll. I don't have many stories up my sleeve this time round as i've been quite busy lately. Doing god knows what, I just know I don't seem to have enough time on my hands these days. 
I've styled a super casual everyday look for the colder months. Being that it was quite sunny today I made the conscious decision not to over do it with the layers. The shift dress can be worn as either a tee or a dress obviously but considering the state of my legs at the moment I chose to cover those bad boys up with a skinny indigo jean. I plan on this being my staple piece for Japanese summer! Gosh I cant tell you how excited I am to leave for 3 weeks!!
I'm finding my beauty routine has taken a back seat in the last couple of months. I have been neglecting my poor eyebrows and my attempt at any kind of cover up is pathetic. I think pony tails and braids are my new best friends and I doubt i'll be straightening, blow waving or curling in the near future. But looking on the bright side, due to the disgusting amount of herbal tea i've been been subconsciously pouring down my gullet my skin has completely cleared of any pimples, red blotchiness and most of my imperfections! Not saying i'm an oil painting but gosh, coffee made me so hagged looking so this change has definitely been for the best. 

I cant believe I almost forgot to mention the most attractive being in these photos. It's Wallace's blogging debut and I feel he nailed it.

SHARP WISH



Brilliant. 
So I've just finished my Harry Potter movie marathon which i've broken up over a few days so i'm not entirely sure you can call it a marathon- probably more like one of those cross country journeys where they take pit stops along the way to recoup. But non the less it was something I will probably do six to fifteen more times across the span of my life. I'm writing this in a half Australian half British accent because basically I get so involved in books/tv shows/ movies that I actually become a part of the series and I spend a decent amount of my adult time ignoring reality and really committing to a character. It just so happens that my boyfriend has started playing football for Gryffindor (Monash Gryphons) and now I can really push the limits of my character/sanity in the outside world. 

But I'm sure no one is here to talk Harry Potter (if you are we may just be best friends) so i'll get to it. 
I've had this shoot done for quite some time now but part of me hasn't wanted to post it purely for the fact that I wanted to prolong the amount of time it had to be featured. I genuinely adore each and every piece in this outfit especially the blazer. Wowee. Definitely a staple piece for when it's not exactly hot nor cold nor anything in my shitty town of pollution and smog. I paired it with thee comfiest pair of boyfriend jeans I think I will ever have in my possession. They are a little big but I don't even care because they are like wearing distressed denim clouds on my legs. I probably could have done with an extra cuff at the bottom but hey, you win some you lose some. I would definitly contemplate pairing my Zara pointed flats or White Suede kittens with this outfit if I was say, leaving my house. But i'm happy with the mix of laid back comfort and sharp lines.

WEEKEND IN PARIS






So as promised last week, I thought I should skim over why I was away for about a month. Obviously I wont go into gruesome detail despite that being my favourite thing to do when retelling stories. Basically I had to have minor surgery which took me a little longer than I anticipated to recover. As usual my body doesn't pull through when needed too, so what was supposed to be a week out of action turned into a month. And thats about it really. So I spent most days in my pj's watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which come to think about isn't very different from most days anyway. I did get a little stir crazy though. 

As usual these days I'm sticking to a monochrome palette because it's coming up to winter/autumn which by the way is my favourite time of the year. All good things happen in the autumn, including easter and my birthday. 

The quilted coat is curtsy of Motel Rocks and will most certainly be a staple in my wardrobe this winter. I always get compliments on this item when out and about. The tee is also a fav piece. So simple but the material is exquisite. For majority of my years I have been avoiding low cut oversized tee's purely because they weren't flattering with my chest size. But it seems with age and the removal of puppy fat I no longer suffer from unnecessary back pain thanks to my chest. Bonus, I can wear cuts and styles that I've always been afraid to wear. It's a win win really as I never really liked my large chest size! Finally, can we all just take a moment to celebrate this tote. It's absolutely stunning and as I'm slowly turning into a gold gal I have to say that this addition to my bag collection has been a very exciting one. It was gifted to me from my mum for my graduation and I love it more than anything, despite not being able to use it until this weekend. I'm counting down the days. Just lastly, I'm loving the sneakers trend at the moment, mainly because it's so god damn comfy and practical- please stay around for another year at least as I'm not ready to say good by to comfort.
