Co-ords

Co-ord: Another Store
Coat: Zara
Clutch: Commes des Garcons
Shoes: Windsor Smith 'Gillie'

Co-ords- a top and a coordinating bottom piece; it looks like you're wearing a dress when worn together, but to get more wear out of it, you can pair it separately . I love the cutouts on this set as it makes what would've been a plain black skirt look more exciting, and who can ever say no to polo necks?

Ivory Whites

Skirt: Asos (old) similar here and here
Shirt: Another Store
RingsShashi Dillon ring & Sportsgirl

Excuse the micro length of this skirt; I don't really wear really short things, but this was the only plain white skirt that I own and it's fair to say that I've grown a few cm (fist pump!) since I last wore it. Whenever I'm stuck for outfit ideas, I opt for a one colour outfit because it usually looks
OK and white or ivory is a crisp colour that looks good as a statement or as a base item. Besides, that means more attention goes to the details, such as the zips on this coat

Dusting the Duster

Top: Uniqlo Merino turtleneck sweater (similar)
Boots: Asos

I'm not sure why, but I feel my outfits that are taken spontaneously as opposed to planned shoots encapsulate my personal style better (and are also taken in a fraction of the time). So here is what I wore today taken on my phone. 

This duster coat arrived a couple days ago and it's something that I''m planning to wear 24/7, well I'll strive to get as much wear out of it as I can. It's a lightweight material which will be perfect for warmer weather, but for now, it' works well as a layering piece. I bought this from the ASOS' tall section (I fall 2cm short of the 175cm guideline, but for me, the length is perfect), they also have it in the normal range and petite.

Innovative textures

Top: Vintage (similar)

OK let's be honest, I'm on semester break, which means 5 weeks of doing nothing and unless you're going overseas or going on a road trip, there's not much to do. Once you've finished watching movies, having brunch, shopping, sleeping and spending hours aimlessly surfing the web it gets pretty boring. Scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed becomes depressing too because whilst I'm freezing in Melbourne's miserable weather, my friends are in the northern hemisphere soaking up the Mediterranean sun. But next year, I'll be proactive and organise a trip somewhere exciting too instead of sulking at home!

When I first wore this vest my friend asked "Are hair extensions attached to your vest?" and I totally don't blame her for thinking that as I thought the same thing. It's great to see such innovation in material department and it's fun to stroke it you know?.. I'm not sure about you, but when the temperature drops I become pretty lazy, and adding a new pair of boyfriend jeans to my wardrobe means I can stop wearing trackies out all the time. I'm yet to find the perfect pair yet, but these will do for now.

The Month That Was June

Now that we're in July, here are some photos of June from my Instagram here.

June was a month that felt like it went on for ages. No kidding, I unconsciously wrote the month as July on my exam paper more than once.. Although June was a month of studying (or cramming) for exams, it looks like I went out a lot more than I should have and spending most of my time at home meant a lot more online shopping happened too.

Muted Coloured Coat

Pants: Sportsgirl 
Boots: Zara 
Bag: Proenza Schoulder Classic PS11

 I don't wear much colour, especially when it comes to outerwear as I find neutral colours much more versatile, and when you're spending a lot of money (usually which coats are), you'd want to be able to wear it as much as possible right?

Contradictory to what I just said, after spending hours in front of my computer bookmarking different options, as well as spending a whole day in the city, searching different stores for a grey coat, I found this 'mushroom' coloured one (or so the tag says). It's a muted colour and makes the outfit that little bit more feminine, which you sometimes need when you've got too much leather or black in one outfit. The vest/turtleneck lookalike attached inside the coat also has been perfect for Melbourne's weather so far, which has been way too cold, not to mention windy for my liking. So, right now the warmer my clothes are, the better.
