On the move...

Coat C/O SheInside | Cardigan from Sirens | Thrifted Jeans | Heels from Ardene

Here's another quick outfit post for a casual sort of look! For this outfit, I took a bit of inspiration from Kate Moss (whose personal style I have adored for years!). I dug out my old high waisted jeans and paired them with a cream coloured cardigan and a beautiful army green coat from SheInside and black pumps.

In other news, I've moved house and am working on getting everything sorted and unpacked as there are boxes and bags that are all over the bloody place. Slowly getting there.


Fashion Favourites | Spring 2014

Even though the weather is still slightly less than ideal, I've had spring and summer fashion on my mind. I recently sorted through my old out-of-season things while packing in the attic and have been trying to suss out how I'd like to dress this spring and summer. Above are a few of my favourite bits from Chicwish!

For starters, I adore this blue midi skirt. It's lovely and feminine, but still not too girlish for my liking. And while I'm quite picky about florals -- they shouldn't be too girly or grandmotherly -- I'm loving this dark floral dress.


Lady in Red

Dress C/O TBDress | Belt from Sirens | Steve Madden Pumps

I've realised that this blog, of late, has become very outfit-post-centric. This is mostly due to the fact that I've been getting ready to move house and have, to say the least, other things on my mind. But I'm hoping to get in a little more variety once I've moved and settled in. Until then, I have at least two more outfit posts upcoming, this being one of them!

I wrote a little while ago about how I was going to make a point to wear more skirts and dresses in 2014 -- I'm wearing a navy and white dotted mini skirt for the first time in ages as I write this! Most of my spring and summer dresses are several years old -- I've tended to gravitate towards autumn/winter styles more so and not shop much in the spring and summer. So, I've been keeping an eye out for a couple of new ones that look more like something someone my age would wear and less like something I would've worn at fifteen -- although there is a place for a few of those old ones, as well. When I came across this pretty little red dress, it somehow reminded me a bit of Kate Middleton (whose style I've admired for years!). I had originally planned to pair it with a vintage red belt and red pumps but ultimately felt it was too much red -- life isn't a Liberal Party convention. Instead, I opted for my black belt and pumps that have been seen here probably dozens of times at this point.


Burgundy & Cream

Top from Sirens | Skirt C/O TBDress | Belt from Sirens | Steve Madden Pumps

I've been meaning to do something about the lack of variety in my posts lately, particularly the outfit posts, and figured it was about bloody time I did something about it! Always posting photos taken in front of my bedroom door was feeling a bit stale, so I decided try something a little different this time. 

As for this outfit, I paired an old cream coloured sweater with a lovely fitted burgundy skirt from TBDress and classic pumps! The top is actually the same one as in these outfit photos, except I wore it backwards here. I actually do this quite often, I just carefully remove the tag I don't think it looks half bad, from the front or back view. I'm not the only one who does this, right?
