Gorman lime t-shirt, Finders Keepers ‘pretty thing’ skirt, ASOS wedges & belt, vintage clutch & necklace

When I saw this skirt, I had no idea how it would look. I have always been quite familiar with the drop back asymmetrical style, but having two lengthy pieces of fabric draping on the sides? I had no clue. So what did I do? Of course, I made it mine. After experimenting with all sorts of combinations – jumpers, singlets, t-shirts, short sleeve blouses, long sleeve blouses, crop tops.. I settled for this casual look. A lime green (love) with navy polka dot t-shirt which as soon as I saw, I fell in love with. The cutesy very-Gorman print gives the good old casual tee a refreshingly girly look and has made me re-think and give t-shirts another chance in my wardrobe. One may say that these two colours put together conjures images of carrots.. but I hope the spots and accessories detract from that particular thought!

Wearing: ASOS hat, shirt, cuff, rings & platform heels and vintage necklace, pocket belt & skirt

Sometimes the best outfits are ones that you just throw together last minute, without the thought of what should go with what. I’m not quite sure why I decided to put bright red in this pastel blue outfit but I think I like it. There’s a lot going on here – embroidery on the shirt, print, an embossed belt. There’s also a lot of textures involved – suede, felt, chiffon, leather, metal. And it’s putting these sorts of pieces together that get me really excited as I really wouldn’t have planned to put something like this together otherwise. These gold accessories, which have been in my kind ownership and care for ages now, have been on my hands and neck pretty much everywhere lately but have only just made their blog debut. These navy platform heels have subtle bows on the front which I also adore. With a deserted courtyard in the city as my backdrop, hello to my latest loves.

Wearing: Kani birds nest headband, top, Chicwish petticoat, ASOS wedges & belt
One of the things that I am really loving at the moment, aside from usual dashes of colour and print, is neutrals. And if it’s on a colour of a petticoat or embellished with beads and sequins.. even better. These photos are the last set of photos taken at Venus bay. The wild grass field behind our holiday house begged for a few photo snaps. I loved the endless spans of bush and land behind the properties! There was plenty of trees and grass, fruit trees and and even a few mountains which had a really narrow sand path that led to the beach. I took it once (I think it was about four mountains worth of walking) and I was positively scared out of my mind by the suspicious rustling noises in the bush, spiderwebs & bull ants and the fact that I had no idea where it would lead us!
