Did anyone see the Game of Thrones “Purple Wedding” the other night? I’m still mildly freaking out. I’m sure if you’re not a Game of Thrones fan I’m sure you’re well and truly over the hype and hearing about people’s rants about these things… but to be honest you are missing out though.

In other news I’ve been really busy this week, but I will always make time to write about useless nothings in my life. Too bad I have nothing interesting to report. Let’s see… Sydney is slowly flooding itself and I’m okay with that as I’m stuck inside all day. My friends and I are making ourselves feel better about living in our mid-twenties thanks to Elite Daily‘s regular articles to keep us from having quarter life crisises (crisi?) My personal fave being “You’re old enough to think YOLO is ridiculous and young enough to still yell it.” YOLO!!

In saying all this I’ve taken a turn in my style and I think that’s a good thing. I like growing up and also resent growing up. Last year I’m pretty sure I turned my nose up at every blazer and stiletto and now blazers and skinny heels are the shit. Gimme that faux corporate look.

In this outfit I am indeed in stilettos and blazer both from Zara… a baby step towards owning that Balmain blazer and those Saint Laurent heels, of which I swear to you will sit in my closet sooner or later (later being more realistic) but yes I went all street and paired it with THE best high rise jeans from Abrand, bag from Coach and printed tee from All About Eve.

We shot this a couple weeks ago when the weather was still scorching and I was sweating in my outfits, nek minit the winter clouds come in and I’ve got my chunky knits and high socks on (today’s insta post). No complaints, I’m embracing the cold because I’ve bought myself some epic coats I’m yet to bust out.

Needless to say I’ll be missing lazy days on the rocks like these where I don’t have to wear pants. In this look I am wearing Talulah one-piece, and sportsgirl hat. Minimal. Haha.

Transeasonal dressing. I love it. Coordinating your summer florals with boots, knits with silks and scarves with dresses. Easy farshun. In this look I am wearing a velour burn out crop top I made last year layered under a floral romper from Lace & Whiskey, jacket from Pull & Bear I got on sale earlier this year (it was their last one and it’s a size large) with boots from ZU Shoes.

I haven’t been looking forward to this day. This day being my birthday. The official turning of the tides that now make me officially in my mid 20s (!!!) are you serious. Ugh. I’ve barely scratched the surface and I’m already over ‘adult decisions’ like car rego, health insurance, super, which bank with what interest, phone providers, rent, tax returns… general boring adult stuff. Curse this stuff that will be in the back of the mind until the day I die *shakes fist*. On a positive note I’m not married with kids yet so my disposable income is going towards good quality leather goods, bikinis, holidays, jeans and hair care instead of diapers and strollers. Winning.

Wanted to kick off this year of 24 with a casual beach look (a look very much in my element) with neoprene (scuba) sweetheart one piece from Shakuhachi and daisy maxi skirt from Forever 21.

Endless hues of bright blues, skies that meet the ocean. This has got to be a top 10 view point in Sydney overlooking Bondi beach. Unfortunately for you it’s privately owned & you’ll probably never see Bondi from this spot… but I am more than happy letting you into my little world & I wish I could share more.

This look is a preppy little number I put together with skirt from Lioness, plaid skivvy from MINKPINK, crop top from Kookai and booties and bags from Atmos&here. Layering tops under crops and skivvys under camis and tees in gonna be a big thing this winter. I can feel it in my bones. Even if it’s just my thing. It’s gonna be big for me haha. I was at so much lack last winter for fashion inspo but this winter I’m ready. Bring on the chills so I can layer my coats on jackets on skivvies on knits.

Short skirts and oversized tees. A staple silhouette I think I will continue on through Autumn, it’s an alternative to wearing a shift dress & a little more casual with more options to mix & match. I’ve never really been an open toed bootie girl, they never really made sense to me – how do you wear a sock? Still, I bought these boots off The Iconic as they were on sale and I do like the lace up trend. Still, I need some toeless socks! Where do I get them? Do they exist?

I’ve worn it with this tee from Sportsgirl,  skirt from AQWA (similar here) and leather jacket from Zara (similar here).

As summer is closing I’m taking all opportunities to get myself into the sun. I’m ready for winter, but I’m kind of not ready for that cold shudder when you get out of the shower or out of bed. It’s even suppose to be raining all this week to get us into the mood. But let’s not dwell on that.

In this look I’m wearing one-piece bikini from Talulah & sunnies I received from Seduce in their blogger goodie bag for their Winter range showings #soblessed

Foggy Day

It was an eerily foggy day when we shot this – but it turned out kind of fun and whimsical, even though the outfit is not whimsical whatsoever. I have though been rocking these checkered slip on vans, Circa 1999 for me (of which I’ve since got a new pair). Slip on sneakers are huge right now, you can see ranges from Topshop to Steve Madden, Superga, Senso and Seed and tonnes more.

If you don’t have a pair, no dramz, sneakers aren’t for everyone. But I am into them because I am into comfy and Vans = comfy. Mathematics, bitch. And my mum’s a maths teacher so naturally I know arithmetic. Don’t fight me on it.

Shorts from A Brand, Shirt from Elliatt & Shoes from Vans

Awkward. Sorry. I’m not a merderl. I’ll get over it if you do.

To be honest this was shot on a lovely summer’s night and this wool/mohair jumper is gonna work a treat for me in Winter because I was burning up (if you couldn’t tell from my overly concerned & sweaty face) thinking is it over, can I take this off now?? Gahhhhh… the perils of a farshun blogger.

I picked up this jumper on sale in Zara in Singapore, I actually have no idea why it was on sale there at all, it’s way too hot for their ridiculous climate. Tourist wins I guess. I’ve paired it with these cute shorts from Market HQ and ZU shoes which I am currently wearing to death.

Go Jock.

In this look I am wearing Kilter dress from Wish paired back with chunky platforms from River Island.
