With the warmer weather finally heading this way (aside from the thunderstorms for the rest of this week), i’ve finally managed to unearth all my summer clothing. I am a big fan of floaty vintage dresses, platform wedges (with socks!), lace everything, bows and hats. So i guess this is what i will be wearing this Summer. Also on my list are some blazers but right now all the ones i own feel too big for me.

I took these photos the day i took photos for my store listings, after a long day of finishing, tagging, photographying & editing my new items, i finally got the chance to take an outfit pic too – hence the sunset glow – it was getting late!

The headband i am wearing is one of the first ones i’ve ever made. It is very similar to the Eva headband in my store right now and also one of my favourite designs. I am completely in love with anything bow adorned and also luxurious creamy neutral colours like champagne and muted pinks.

I am actually wearing two necklaces here, they are layed upon each other and both are up there in my favourites :)

I think i am spending too much time working and too less time enjoying my holiday. Have done almost nothing exciting to report back. Except I did go to Sofias to enjoy their avocado seafood salad – man that is the most amazing salad i have ever tried and everyone should give it a go! I’ve listed 15+ new items on KisforKANI.etsy.com in the last couple of days. And i’ve also decided to keep one of them for myself :) It is not the one in the outfit photo above, but another one of the same style, but made out of the fabric of Ziggy.I really couldn’t decide between the two but in the end went for the other one because it had more green shades in it. 
ANYWAY. Today Chadstone is having one of their VIP Shopping days and i might just go have a peek. After i do the laundry. After i clean my room. And after i unearth my summer clothing.
Oh and about the outfit. This collar is breathtaking!!
