Leather tights

Oh, how I love leather... Pants, skirts, shorts, dresses, shirts, boots and everything in between. I'm quite glad that this trend seems to be sticking around for a while because it's definitely a material that I love wearing. It adds instant edge to your outfit and is actually quite comfortable to wear. I wanted to go for a more relaxed vibe so I paired it with an army green shirt and a beanie, but you can just as easily dress up a pair of leather pants - as I did in a recent post here. Versatility is something I always look for in an item and leather definitely delivers this :)

MBFF Sydney - Trends

Hey guys! Hope you're all having a great start to the week :)

Last weekend, I attended the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Sydney's CBD and got to see some amazing pieces from the Trends runway show. Since I had some issues with my DSLR that night, I was left with no other choice but to snap some pics on my iPhone, so I apologise for the quality! 
Along with what I wore, here are some of my favourite parts of the show - which of course included the closing. Maticevski can do no wrong! Futuristic haute couture done so well.

Enjoy! :)

Favourite statement necklace

I've been loving this statement layered necklace from the minute I bought it about a year ago. It's the perfect accessory to add to an outfit when wanting to transition from day to night effortlessly. It'll take any outfit up a notch instantly and adds the right amount of glamour for your night out. We all need a trusty piece like this that we can always rely on in our jewellery collection!

Green envy


I'm back with another outfit inspiration post! And this time it's all about Green :)
I've always been in love with emerald and I really like pairing it with black, white or neutral tones for a pop of colour in my outfit, but I usually wear the same jeans + shirt combination. I wanted to discover new ways of wearing different shades of green so I took to Pinterest (my obsession!) to find some street style snaps for inspiration to share with you all.

If you're looking for fun new ways to wear green, think faux fur coats, trench coats, lace pants, leather jackets, sheer maxi skirts, dresses (try metallic if you dare!), and if you just want a hint of green, then bold accessories will look great. Just have fun with it and experiment with different textures and prints to add interest.

Which looks are your favourite? And how do you style green items in your wardrobe?
I'd love to know in the comments!

Walk the line

Hey guys! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend :)

I'm back with an outfit post - it's monochromatic and quite simple, but I've been loving stripes lately and you can never go wrong with black and white! I paired the outfit with some gold accessories and heels for an evening event, but I also think adding a camel coloured coat and some flats would be a perfect day look for winter. How do you style stripes? I'd love to know in the comments!

Rock it out


Here's some Thursday arvo inspiration for you all! :)

I'm quite classic with my style - usually sticking to jeans or tailored pants and a blazer for most days, but today I thought I'd step out of the box a bit and find some edgy outfit inspiration. I love printed shirts and leather jackets, but I've never thought I could pull off a rocker vibe - I just love clean lines, structure and colour too much. But, I thought these photos had the right amount of edge to them that I might just be able to pull of! 

What's your personal style like?  How would you style edgy pieces?

The peplum

I bought this peplum top so long ago (I think I've had it for a year now..) but I still love it! I find peplums really flattering whether it be on a top or skirt, because it not only hides the areas your not too comfortable with, but it also adds shape and silhouette. 

This yellow peplum is definitely a favourite of mine. It's so easy to dress it up with heels for a night out, or dress it down with a pair of jeans or shorts for a sophisticated day look. And I'm always drawn to colour and detail when it comes to fashion, so of course I fell in love with the bright yellow tone and the triangular cut-outs on the neckline. It just adds a little something extra :) I decided to toughen the look up by pairing the peplum with some leather pants, yet still keep it feminine with some gold heels.

How do you style your peplum items? I'd love to know in the comments!

Myer SS14 fashion launch

Last night I attended the Myer spring/summer 2014 fashion show and boy am I excited for the warmer months ahead! The theme "This is Australia" focused on the Aussie outback and drew inspiration from the wonderful warm and earthy tones that our bushland is famous for. The designs were all amazing - a lot of sheer whites and neutrals and of course floral prints and other fun patterns with gorgeous pops of colour. I also loved seeing native Australian plants and akubra hats on the runway - such a great way to blend culture and fashion.

Here are some shots I took during the night... And how amazing did Jennifer Hawkins look on the runway?!

Enjoy! And let me know your favourite looks in the comments :)

Top 6 picks for summer

I know it may seem strange writing this post as I'm freezing my butt off and it's pouring rain outside, but it's never too early to prepare for summer in Sydney! And for those of you who are lucky to be half way around the world and experiencing the beautiful sunshine, then I hope you find this post insightful :)

I was recently a featured blogger for Pickiea personalized shopping magazine for fashion, beauty & home goods. In Pickie you can personalize your catalog by selecting themes within categories, and each day you'll get an 'edition' of products & content that's tailored to your taste. Everything you see you can buy without leaving the app, which means no more frustration from seeing something awesome and then not being able to find where to buy it.
And if you want to see more options you can search to see everything in their catalog and filter by price, brand, etc. to find something that best suits your unique tastes (#bePickie!). 

And as part of the collaboration, I chose 6 essential picks for this summer:

Zara fall 2013 campaign

Zara's creative direction just keeps on improving and I find myself becoming more and more in love with the brand every year. These action shots from the Zara fall collection immediately caught my attention - so chic and modern!
These photos have a high-end fashion feel to them with the structured pieces and clean lines, yet Zara still seems to maintain their signature wearable vibe with neutral tones and classic designs. 
This is definitely a collection I can't wait to see in store!

What are your favourite pieces? What do you think of the collection so far? I'd love to know in the comments :)

Routine

It's August already?! This year is flying for me... 
Unfortunately I'm back at uni and have just completed week 1. Getting into my usual uni and work routine is taking a while since I just had a 2 month break (which I still wish I was on..).

So I'm back with another outfit post - a typical freezing morning in Sydney on the way to uni. I'm loving these cobalt jeans at the moment - they definitely brighten up the outfit. Since I'm a jeans junkie, I'm always looking to find new colours, prints and cuts. This pair stood out to me the minute I saw them not only because of the colour, but because the fit is amazing and the fabric has the perfect amount of stretch. And of course, I couldn't resist pairing it with this sweater - how cool are those leather sleeves?!
