wearing: Quirky Circus striped t-shirt, vintage overalls & Urban Outfitters pocket boots
Ah, hello! I’ve just returned from a four (slightly too short) day holiday, cruising 10km above the ground on a one hour flight to well, what could be described as Melbourne’s rival city, Sydney. Sydney weather for the week before had been pretty rough, but thankfully the weather upon arrival was more than fine! On the first day, the touristy activities on hand included checking out the Harry Potter exhibition and visiting the Sydney Tower. I brought along this pair of vintage floral denim overalls that I was just dying to wear. It has a gorgeous subtle print which I paired with a striped t-shirt I had never before found the chance to wear and my trusty pocket boots which ended up being more comfortable than the only pair of flats I brought along. They ended up being my shoe-of-the-holiday and I wore them every single day, 9am-9pm and did not land a single ouchie. Amazing. The top photo is my desktop wallpaper at the moment and was taken whilst on the plane. The view of the city is simply breathtaking and is probably one of the things that I love about Sydney the most!
Kani hair wreath, Samantha Wills necklace and stone cuff, Wish ‘Angelica’ dress, ASOS belt & wedges
I just wanted to share with you a couple of photos of this dress which I also used as part of the White Bohemia Blogger’s Edit. It’s a midi-length dress and hits just at my knees. And I’ve never owned a midi-dress. Ever. Mainly because I feel like they make me seem short and I don’t really need that when I’m already not so tall to begin with – 160cm to be exact (I always seemed to get asked this and suddenly wonder how tall/short do I look?!) But this Wish dress, for some reason, just feels so flattering on. It’s made out of a very flowy, dusty pink material & has beautiful cut-out detailing on the front. It’s name, the ‘Angelica’ dress which I think easily embodies the dress’s design. Wore this on my birthday & loved it. Officially 20, which makes me have the urge to pack away anything teenager-ish as I venture into the world of…hm being ‘old-er’!
Wearing: Samantha Wills jewellery, vintage blouse, Chicwish petticoat, The Story Of button down top, Wish dress, Betts Wedges & ASOS belt.
As a lover of fashion, I’ve always got my eye on certain designers and brands that I like. Whether it be a certain trend that I really love, the general aesthetics and style of their collections or just some beautiful piece that I decide to stalk until I can’t stand it anymore and just have to get my hands on it. I can’t quite remember how I first ran into Samantha Wills but I do remember this piece that I fell in love with, a gold lion chain bracelet that stole my heart and never gave it back.. So when I heard that Samantha & the team liked my blog and were keen on having me involved in the Australian version of the Samantha Wills ‘Bloggers Edit’, I was more than happy to participate :)
We were asked to shoot our interpretation of the theme ‘white bohemia’ in a ‘style off’ competition and readers and fans are invited to vote for their favourite blogger looks to crown a special winner! I chose to style my Samantha Wills pieces around a neutral white colour scheme with lots of delicate eyelet details, scallop edges, tiers and textures. I would be absolutely thrilled if you could vote for my photos, simply by clicking the ‘like’ button for each of my five photos starting from this one here.
Thank you, with love <3
