Striped Maxi Dress

This lightweight maxi dress is perfect for Summer days and you can easily dress it with a pair of sneakers for a casual feel as I've done in this outfit, or throw on a pair of heels or even boots for a dressier look (and you can never have too many striped clothes either). These Adidas Superstars are a new addition to my wardrobe, and you've probably seen them all over Instagram, but they're the perfect pair of sneakers to wear with non-gym clothes and are a fresh twist to the classic Converse chucks that everyone loves.

Summer Essentials

Tis' the season of finding sand in random places weeks after a day at the beach, sunglasses inconveniently being caught on your hair after putting them at the top of your head, (not enough) gelato trips to Messina, days lounging around the house simply because there's air conditioning and days that go on forever. I've compiled some essential items to have handy/wear because even though you're sweaty most of the time, you don't have to live in denim cutoffs and thongs (aka flip flops) every day- save those for the beach.

The Oversized Cardigan

Wearing: Tobi Verona cardigan (similar), May the Label December top, ASOS cropped trousersJolie & Deen ring & knot bangle

An oversized, thick cardigan is my go to outerwear when I need the warmth, but want to feel uber comfortable and presentable at the same time, and let me tell you now, oversized cardigans and I go way back. Back in the day when I went thrifting/ op shopping on a regular basis, I'd come across racks full of cardigans every time; they were unavoidable, like bread in a supermarket, you kind of just expect it to be there. Whilst a large proportion of cardigans in op shops were the short type, ones you would typically find to have a matching a knee length office skirt or a ruffled white blouse, you would see a lot of thick, oversized knitted cardigans too, which were the ones I typically liked to buy, and were what my mum used to call the 'granny cardi'.

A few years later and mothball-scent free, oversized cardigans are still a staple in my wardrobe; they're somewhat like a bathrobe (sans fluffy white towel material), in the sense that they allow unlimited movement and come in endless lengths and colours, a perfect alternative to a leather jacket or a structured coat. Here, I've paired a pair of heels with this Tobi cardigan, so the outfit looks less "I'm just lounging around home today" and more "I'm smart because I can lift my arms up comfortably, yet I'm not wearing sweats or sleepwear".

2014, You've Been Good

2014 was a big (but exciting) year, so here are a few of my favourite outfits from the year.

Clear Blue Skies

Maven the Label sheer pullover, Rayban Aviators (from Vision Direct), Kookai bralette, Vans 'Old Skool' (from Platypus), Zara bag

It's New Years Eve, and because I never got around posting this when I had originally scheduled to post yesterday morning, I now have to finish my makeup on the car to NYE's celebrations to be able to squeeze in ONE last post before the year officially comes to an end (sad face).

 2014 has been an incredible year for me- both life wise and blog wise; I've met SO many amazing people over the last 12 months, and have had opportunities I would never have thought possible, (i.e. being featured in magazines and working with brands that I've been fans of way before I even existed on this whole bloggersphere) and without your support it wouldn't have been possible. I'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to each and every one of you for keeping in touch and for following me; whether it's popping by and reading my posts here, liking my photos on Instagram or Facebook, or even saying hello on the street, it really does mean a lot to me and I'm so incredibly blessed and grateful for what I've been able to achieve this year.

All the best for the rest of 2014, if you're reading this from the other side of the world (aka not the Southern hemisphere). I'll see you in 2015!

Much love,
