Momentary

Exams are less than a month away, but thank god for the two weeks of holidays (aka non-instructional period) that lets my brain relax a bit before it completely breaks down and goes MIA on me when I need it the most.

If you're anything like me, being able to wear something for more than one type of weather is a bonus and although this sweater/jumper/knit (what's the difference?) is big and probably not what you'd think to wear in Summer, wear a short skirt , or skort in this case on the bottom and keep the top minimal to allow air to breathe through (a singlet is recommended in case you DO overheat and then you can take the jumper off. Luckily for me it hasn't gotten to that stage yet so I got away with wearing it.)

Wearing: Shakuhachi Ribbed Crop Sweater, Zara Skort, Windsor Smith 'Gillie' Heels (here)Acne 'Olivine Clutch', Asos ring (similar here)

 If you're on holidays like me, I hope you'll get that list you made at the start of the holidays done.
PS: I feel that little bit more sophisticated every time I wear these heels.

What's your smell?


1. Diptique 'Olene' 2. Clean 3. Maison Martin Margiela 'Replica' 4. Diptique 'Baies'
This morning, my usual perfume Daisy Oh So Fresh left me with a headache and in need of something new. I'm not quite sure what these smell like, but I'm sure it's anything but the sickly sweet and overpowering scent that lingers around crowded spaces (in particular change rooms and locker bays). I'm now on the mission to find the one fragrance that embodies summer days by the beach, the feeling of freshly coming out of the shower, a bouquet of flowers (preferably not roses) along with a touch of fruitiness. 

I'm open to any suggestions!

Spring

WearingAmerican Apparel cropped long sleeve top, Kookai knitted maxi skirt, Cotton On felt hat,  Windsor Smith boots, Romwe bag

Bidding farewell to the miserable month called Winter, we welcome the sweet days of hayfever stricken eyes, tranquillising sunshine and generally happier people. Spring is a time when nature resumes its loveliness, we can shed the dullness imposed by the gloomy days of Winter and revive our radiance.

Making most of the little free time I had, I decided to take advantage of the momentary sunshine; knowing Melbourne we'll be back in thermals tomorrow.  Contrary to the pastel palettes and feminine lace embroidery associated with Spring, I opted for an all black outfit with a touch of grey on top, somehow in mourn of Winter (and also because all that I can seem to find in my wardrobe right now are dark colours). The transition is slow and gradual, but I'll get there in the end.


Fingers crossed this weather lasts longer than a couple of days
