Classic

THE FIFTH WATCHES timepiece | CELINE Audrey Sunglasses from Vision Direct

Nothing says classic than a white shirt and a pair of black trousers. It's completely up to you how you style it- heels for a dressier look, sneakers for a casual look, a tailored shirt for more corporate style and so on. Finding a staple white shirt is sometimes just as tricky as finding the perfect pair of skinny jeans; you've got to try a dozen different styles until you find one that you like. For me, I like shirts that aren't fitted, but not oversized either, which is why I opted for a men's shirt.

Lately I've been loving the bucket bag shape as it is perfect if you're someone who likes to carry around a lot of things. Being equal parts functional and fashionable, it's no wonder why it's been such a popular shape. This bag by Australian designer, Janna Jones is constructed out of thick leather, making it perfect to just throw everything in.

Ever since Christine Centenera, Kimmy K and the likes were spotted in the Celine Shadow sunglasses I, along with masses of other girls (I know because having used to work at a sunglass store, the most frequently asked for brand were, you guessed it Celine) have been lusting over a pair of Celine sunglasses. As cool as the Shadows are (if you haven't heard of them you've probably seen them around-see here) I decided to choose the Audrey, which is a pretty classic oversized pair.

GREY ON GREY

WEARING: THE FIFTH Minds Wonder skirt | AUGUST STREET Jumper

Last week I came home after a month of travelling around in the European heat (a post about that will be up in the next week or two) and after wearing a lot of white after realising that all the black clothes that I packed were way too hot to wear on a daily basis in what apparently was the hottest Summer yet, I'm loving the transition back into (somewhat) darker colours.  

Black will always be a staple colour in my wardrobe (especially since an all black outfit epitomises Melbourne style), but grey is my current colour obsession- it's all about the grey on grey (on grey?). Whether you style it with white shoes, black shoes, grey shoes or even coloured shoes if you're more adventurous than me, grey is a soft enough colour that it'll easily match anything. With the obsession with all things marble, this clutch fulfils all my marble printed dreams. Now all I need is that marble bathroom. Someday...

Since being back home, I've been trying to find the motivation to post more regularly, be more productive and stay on top of uni work, but I'll let you know how that goes. In the meantime, I'll aim to get at least one post up a week (fingers crossed!)

Oversized Grey Coat

WEARING: STELLY Grey Coat | ZARA jumper | ACNE STUDIOS Skin 5 Jeans
PROENZA SCHOULER PS11 bag | DANIEL WELLINGTON watch | JO MERCER Sneakers

Here's a quick post of an outfit that I've been wearing on repeat over the last week or so. The oversized coat silhouette is perfect to stay warm in, but it's not too restrictive to wear for long periods of time (great arm movement).

Skinny Jeans + A Denim Bomber

WEARING: G-STAR RAW Tahi Bomber | G-STAR RAW 3301 black Jeans | AUGUST STREET T-Shirt
 ALEXANDER WANG Rockie bag | KOMONO Sunglasses | FIFTH WATCHES timepiece 

Skinny jeans are a staple item in any wardrobe- for both guys and girls, but nothing is harder than finding a pair that fits perfectly to your body, is comfortable and doesn't lose its shape or colour after a few months of wear. 

Over the years, I've accumulated numerous pairs of black skinny jeans and because they never fit like I want them to, they've been neglected after one or two wears. For me, comfort is key so I look for stretch and mobility in a pair of jeans, which is why I opted for the 3301 skinny jean from G-Star Raw's denim range. 

My advice is when looking for the perfect pair to fit you, know how you'd like the jeans to sit around your waist (high rise, low rise, regular), the level of stretchiness as well as the length of the actual jean (cropped, full length etc.). It's always handy to have your measurements on hand too, otherwise most shop assistants in a denim specialty store should be able to give you a hand.
