off duty

off duty

(1)  J Brand leather pants
(2)  Isabel Marant Luz Handknit cardigan
(3)  Mango heels
(4)  Ray Ban Classic Aviators
(5) Proenza Schouler PS11 Classic Bag

I know most of the world is getting super excited for spring
But for those of us living upside the world
we don't really have that luxury
to be honest, it's kind of killing me that everyone is getting ready for summer- Sydney's summer was the biggest disappointment
and before it really even began, we're getting ready for autumn

Although, autumn is my favourite time of the year
The sun is still balmy, the days are still longer 
and it's the beginning of light layering.
To me, Miranda Kerr is the queen of the perfect autumn layering
A touch of class and a lot of street cred

This was meant to be a autumn layering collage but I got distracted by those J Brand leather pants

bassike white tee // asos leather skirt // jeffrey campbell heels // alexander mcqueen scarf (similar here) //
michael kors watch // mimco yellow bracelet (similar here) // witchery bucket bag (similar here)

This is pretty much my go to outfit for days when I'm running late for class and when the weather looks like it can go either way.
I love anything that's leather, because I think it just gives it that extra edge and makes getting dressed that much more fun

Although, if I was going to be completely truthful...leather makes me feel rock'n'roll :)
especially worn with one of my mcqueen scarves

I feel very old school wearing the skull scarf
A few years ago they were everywhere you look; my mum and I went cray-cray and bought a variety of the colour combinations
The other day when I dug them out and wore it again
My mum sat me down and very seriously asked me why we had so many and why we didn't have the most basic combination (white & black)
She had that look on her face, the one she gets right before she tells me to scour the internet to try and find something

But then we couldn't agree on whether we wanted black with white print or white with black print. She thinks black with white is too rock'n'roll and I think white with black is too boring.
Then we realised why we had all these colour combinations and no monochrome.

My mother is a terrible influence on my shopping bang
I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all

bondi wanderings.

(1) bondi beach
(2) & (3) loving the palm trees
(4) the mosaics seats dotted along the street
(5)& (7) asos skirt, sportsgirl knit, lv petit noe
(6) i love the colours! need it in my room
(9) one of the best burgers i've had in awhile
(10) sydney's answer to pinkberry
(11) how very retro

I know I haven't been the most dedicated blogger as of late. 
But I figured I better post these photos before another weekend comes and goes
The past saturday, I went to Bondi Beach with my other pea ( because we're two peas in a pod)for a catch-up session and good food
It probably wasn't the best idea, eating so close to so many shops

Now, don't get me wrong. I love shopping in big shopping centres (or m-alls) as much as the next girl. But, there's something so intimate about shopping at boutiques and walking down the street search for the next store. Especially when the sun is bright and everyone around you is dressed so well. 

the other pea came armed with a list of things to do and buy...
he ended up with a new pair of chinos
whilst i ended up another shopping bag from tuchuzy and a much much lighter wallet

But there's something about bondi beach and the surrounding streets that i enjoy so much. there's so many cafes to try and chill at- and so much things to do and buy

and just walking down the street, people are so well-dressed
but not in the stuffy way. it's all very effortless chic

Visual orgasm.

not enough days of summer.

random dress // mr kate swirl ring // rmk boots // miu miu bag (similar here) //  michael kors watch 

I found these photos in my computer when I was trying to clean out some of my photos.
They're really just a cruel taunt about the short summer that we just had
Although, I'm super excited for autumn to come, I can't wait to layer all the clothes that I've accumulated during the summer in preparation!

In the meantime, I'm going back to my insolvency law notes making a wish list for all the things I want to buy in the near future

shopping | on my mind

on my mind
The only thing on my mind recently has been floral anything and neon. I'm so addicted to wearing pants these days, it's perfect for the ambivalent weather that we've been having recently. There's so much choice and I feel like a kid in a candy store. I'm kind of in love with the Current/Elliott pair of neon leopard print jeans. But I think it's too ccrrrrazy. 

But it's love.

What do you think?

inspiration | monday blues

sources:, tumblr

If you've read my blog before, you know how much I complain about the weather and how much it affects my mood.

Well, it's Monday and the weather is in the sh*ts
so, here's something you cheer you me up

outfit | candy gal

Witchery coral cardigan // Nude Lucy white tank // J Brand shorts // Aldo shoes // Chloe sunglasses (similar here) // American Apparel yellow leather clutch // Kenneth Jay Lane tiger head bracelet (similar here) // OPI what's with the cattitude?

These photos were taken earlier this week when the sunshine was beautiful and I wanted to dress like I rolled around the floor of a candy store and leave wearing the wrappers. My mum took one look at me in the morning and said that I make her want to eat candy hahha

I'm enjoying the last remnants of the weekend by chilling to some Kenny G and an Aloe Vera facial mask. It's not actually driving away the impending Monday Blues but it's definitely not hurting. 

How are you spending the last of your weekend?
