Cardigan season


Hey guys, I'm back!!!

I had the most amazing time in China, and I honestly didn't want to come home. It was sooo much fun! I'm hoping to get the photo diaries up soon, but I'm flat out with uni now so hopefully part 1 will be up by the end of next week. I'll chat all about my travels around China in my photo diary blog post, but for today, I thought I'd get back into the outfit posts. Winter is definitely coming faster than I thought. It was freezing in China, and Sydney is no different. All the knits and cardigans are coming out! This is one of my favourite cardigans and I bought it around 2 years ago lol.. But it's such a staple piece, and a cool colour, so I can't get rid of it yet. I felt like pairing it with a dress since the sun was still shining. I love the floral lace detailing on the hem and the cutouts on the sides - they add a unique touch, which I'm always looking for. Finish off with some sunnies and a simple pair of sandals. A great polished daytime look :)

Monochrome



Hey guys! I know I've been completely silent the past week, but my uni workload has been packed with assignments and exams... Thankfully most of them are over now...
On the bright side, however, I've got some awesome news!! I'm heading to China tonight for a 2 week holiday! Since it's my mid-semester break right now, I thought I'd grab the opportunity to travel. I always like to go somewhere I've never been before, every 3 months or so (especially when I have the time). It keeps me feeling alive, refreshed and motivated.

I'm heading to Beijing, Xian and Shanghai for 2 weeks, and I couldn't be more excited! I've always wanted to walk the Great Wall, see the Terracotta Warriors.. and of course who wouldn't love the hustle-bustle of Shanghai :) Unfortunately, it means that I won't be posting anything until I return.. but as always, there will definitely be a photo diary (or three) of my adventure there! 

Now onto today's post - monochrome! (yes, I'm still loving monochrome...) I can definitely feel winter coming.. nights have been colder than usual, and days are feeling crisp (and the rain has been creeping in!) You can't go wrong with some leather pants and big knit to keep you warm, so that's what I went with :) 

Hope you guys have a great weekend! Talk to you all in 2 weeks!

I'll be posting on Instagram and Twitter regularly, so if you'd like to stay up-to-date with my adventures in China, be sure to follow me :)

Summer style


We're well into Autumn now in Sydney, but some days it feels just like summer. Gotta love Aussie weather :) I had a day full of errands yesterday, so I went for yet another practical and simple look. I feel like I'm doing that a lot lately. I haven't had the time to put much effort into outfits these days.. too busy! Well at least this top is pretty cute. I don't usually wear much pink, but I liked the pattern on this cami.. I think it'll look great tucked into a high-waisted skirt for a night out... Have to try that one ;)

Anyway, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet, because I have a massive pile of uni assignments to get done in a ridiculously short amount of time. And I have to study for exams next week.. ughhhh.. Wish me luck!

Hope you're all having a great Friday night!
#TGIF! Wooo!
