Hello Autumn!

Image
Well, although it is technically autumn here now, it sure doesn't feel like it!  This week has been another hot and humid one and it just feels like it is never going to cool down!  Even though I have been sweltering, sartorially I've been desperate to start wearing autumn clothes like cardigans, jeans and long sleeves!  Although it is still too hot to wear the aforementioned, it's never too early to wear autumnal colours!  Maybe wearing such colours will encourage autumn to hurry up and make an appearance!  Worth a try, right?

I bought this ombre orange skirt last year on a mini getaway to Byron Bay and it has become a firm favourite of mine.  The store I bought it at only has a few sizes of each design, so you are pretty much guaranteed to not see anyone else wearing the same thing!  Always a plus, I'm sure you'll agree! ;)
I knew that my recently thrifted bag would be perfect to keep the autumn vibe g…

Ahoy Sailor!

Image
Long time, no sea!  Sorry, I couldn't resist starting with a pun, but I promise I'll try to keep them to a minimum!  It really has been a long time since I've published a post though!  Life has been busy, I've been unwell and just when I was about to publish a post the other night, the power went out for 7 hours!  Grr! 
Anyway, I'm here now.  Better late than never, right?!  I apologise for not visiting your blogs or replying to comments.  I promise I will catch up soon! 
I decided to call this post Ahoy Sailor, as I recently welcomed another pair of shoes to my collection called Sailor!  I'd had my eye on these shoes for quite sometime and when I saw they had finally gone on sale, I couldn't resist!  Like all HCD shoes, they are fun and quirky and extremely comfortable.  I really can walk all day in them, which is no mean feat (feet!) with my old flat feet, that's for sure! ;)

All The Colours Of The Rainbow!

Image
Some days I wake up with a certain colour or style in mind, which makes putting an outfit together easy and stress-free.  So, what do you do when you wake up with no idea what colour you want to wear?  Easy, you wear them all of course!!
I love playing around with different colours and prints and creating new combinations out of well-worn favourites and new purchases alike.  It's so fun to create new looks from existing pieces, as it makes you realise how much you already have and how versatile pieces can be, with a little creativity and imagination!  Blogging really does encourage me to play around with what I have and make the most of everything I own.  You are never too old to play dress-up, right?! 
My outfit is a mix of my favourite colours and pieces all worn together in a vibrant outfit featuring (almost) all the colours of the rainbow!  This kimono is such a gorgeous and versatile piece that I wear as much as I can!  I paired it with my trusty violet skirt, which is also …

Bag Inspired Outfits!

Image
As you know by now, I absolutely love accessories!  Shoes, jewellery and bags! They are my top three! Nothing makes an outfit more unique and fun to wear than the addition of some quirky and cool accessories!  
When I am having one of those mornings staring into my wardrobe thinking that I have absolutely nothing to wear, I turn to my accessories for inspiration!  The colours, patterns and styles of my fave accessories never fail to provide the necessary inspiration to create new outfits from my exisiting wardrobe.  
Today I thought I'd share some of my recently worn outfits that all have one thing in common.  They were all inspired by fun and colourful bags!  

The Bag: Colette Hayman This bag is a recent purchase that I bought on sale.  I just had to get it, as I do have a bit of a thing for cherries!  I have a cherry necklace, earrings and shoes, so I was definitely overdue for a cherry bag!  I love this one!  I decided to take direct inspiration from this bag by wearing block c…

Burgundy & Beads!

Image
Can you believe it is almost the end of February?  I am still getting used to it being 2019, and the second month is already almost over!  This is my last week to get everything sorted out before my postgraduate studies resume again next week.  I haven't even ordered my textbooks yet!  I really need to get organised!  
In the outfit I'm sharing today, I'm wearing one of my fave maxi skirts that I've had for many, many years!  I've worn it with many different coloured tops over the years, but this was the first time wearing my new burgundy coloured top.  I love the burgundy and wine colours that are around at the moment.  They're so pretty!

The outfit: Top: H & M Skirt: Tree of Life Sandals: Gino Ventori

Necklace: Diva
I've had these beads for so many years now, but I never tire of wearing them!  They add a bit of colour and cheer to every outfit.  
Bag: Marikai
This bag is a new purchase.  I had been on the look out for a slouchy tan bag and I spied thi…
