Fluffy, Warming, Fur Vest

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous Thursday! Melbourne has been extremely kind to us this week with the weather. Ok, so it's still chilly out there but at least the sun's out most days during the week, and everything is just so much better when the sun's out! =) As we move well and truly into winter, one wardrobe item I find that is glamorous but also incredibly functional is...the opulent fur vest. I purchased this luscious little number a while ago in preparation for the winter and have been waiting for the perfect climate to showcase her. As you can see, she thrives in the cold, strengthens against in the wind and embraces the "wild".

In Love with Pink Orchids

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed some wonderful sunshine that Melbourne has put on for us! I felt great over the weekend knowing that the bulk of the house move was completed. Whenever you move, no matter how pleased you are with the new place, you will always need some additional time to grow into the new abode to call it 'home'. I like to speed up this 'break in' process by buying a fresh bunch of flowers to put into the new house. To me, flowers bring a breath of life to the new home, and marks the start of a new beginning that lingers with a mild but delicious scent to savour for days to come. This time though, I didn't just bring home the traditional bunch of fresh flowers, instead, I thought a few beautiful stems of pink orchids will be even better. My orchids stood nice and tall in its pot, happily blossoming and flaunting its beauty for everyone to see =) Seeing the joy they projected and inspired by their intense flush of pink hue, this weekend, I decided to wear something in that same intense colour.

Winter Blossoms & Prada Baroque

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great Thursday! Just wanting to thank you for your patience with recent delays in updating the blog. I have been travelling in the last couple of weeks and since returning home, it has been an absolute chaos trying to move house. Having gone through this rather painful process, I am now more convinced than ever that 'Simple Living' shall be my new motto going forward in order to stay sane the next time I need to move again. I am just utterly amazed with the amount of possessions one is able to accumulate over time =P 

Now that I am back home and moved, postings will become more regular again. One of the harsh realities of coming back home is bracing this bone-chilled weather and the constant rain. Melbourne is not incredibly equipped to deal with cold weather because we are just not really "known" to have cold winters, despite the reality. To brighten the mood in this sombre weather, I pounced at the opportunity to wear something cheerful even if the sun only peeped out for a brief moment. I thought a splash of burnt orange with some floral printed jeans, along with my new favourite - the Prada Baroque sunglasses-, would suffice =)

Summer Travelling Outfits: Brights!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you are having a fabulous day so far! This posting is a postcard all the way from NYC. Sorry it has taken slightly longer than expected to post. I have been travelling the last week, and accessing the internet revolves around the random and quick drop ins to Starbucks (thank you Starbucks!). I want to thank you for your patience! =) As promised, this posting is all about travelling outfits, geared towards the hot weather. I tried to balance comfort, practicality, style and some local fun elements to prevent from looking like a complete tourist =P

Nice & Clean, White on White

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Next post will be from NYC...yay! Hoping the weather will be great there and I am looking forward to sharing with you some of my travelling outfits =) 

Last weekend was fantastic, for the first time in a long long time, I actually had some spare time to relax. The weather was a lot milder too, so I jumped at the opportunity to wear shorts without having to worry about wearing tights underneath to keep warm. Personally, I think tights and stockings are great, especially the interesting ones that come in different colours, textures or patterns, but I do find them a little less flexible in terms of pairing with a wide variety of skirts, shorts, dresses or shoes (particularly peep toes). Given the nice weather, I wanted to create a really clean look, so I decided on a white combination. 

Shirt: Anthropologie (great styles here and here); Jacket: Zara Trf (great styles here and here); Shorts: Asos; Earrings: Amrita Singh; Watch: DKNY (similar); Clutch: Forever New (similar, similar); Shoes: Mollini (similar, wedge style here)
