outfit

in our world

On Thursday afternoon, I touched down in Sydney to celebrate the launch of ASOS’s exclusive to Australia Spring/Summer collection. As always, without fail, Sydney graced us with its beautiful weather and after a relaxing overnight stay I happily indulged in Friday’s sunny 32 degree weather. And at the end of September, barely into Spring – who would have thought? Over breakfast at the Sailors Club in Rose Bay, we were introduced to ASOS’s super special collection which is launching so very soon, ready for the Aussie Spring/Summer season. It covers everything from beachwear, formal outings and music festivals. For me, a self-confessed ASOSholic (a term which should totally be a real word), this is fabulous news, and probably something which will undoubtedly make my wallet weep. I’ve always found it a little bit disheartening when shopping at online European and American stores, I have to scroll through pages and pages of amazing clothes – but of the opposite season’s collections. Although, sometimes this means we manage to snap up a good bargain in the clearance sections! However, it’s going to be so refreshing now that we can all browse through Summer ranges exclusive to Australia. In particular, I have my eye keenly on the lace and floral number above. A little birdy also says that there will be a special vintage inspired capsule collection – ‘ASOS Salon’, popping up on our screens soon. I’m counting down the days..!

In celebration, we were asked to select a few pieces from the site to wear to the event and these are just a few of my favourite pieces from this exciting new collection!

Wearing: Catarzi lilac pillbox ribbon hat, ASOS cream scallop bib blouse, ASOS white pephem skirt, vintage sweater guard, Topshop puppy print socks, Topshop ACTON buckle boots and vintage & handmade bracelets {Photos by my sister}

While this semi-sheer white blouse and pephem mini skirt ensemble was perfect for the balmy 32 degree morning in Sydney, I didn’t quite have time to shoot this outfit in Sydney. Instead, I managed to brave a 14 degree Melbourne morning to shoot this outfit, looking and feeling ridiculously under-dressed for the icy winds that threatened to topple my pillbox hat off my head! So my ASOS saved items list seems endless, and when choosing which pieces to wear, it took me so long to single out my three favourite pieces – the pillbox hat, cream blouse and white pephem skirt – hoping that I could attempt to work them together. Some vibrant pink puppy print socks and a vintage sweater guard later, I was off and out, without realising that this outfit has brought together a few of my most favourite things at the moment: Vintage inspired pillbox hats, whites/creams/pastels, sweater guards, quirky prints, pephems (peplum, on a hem!) and some staple brown leather boots. All pieces which I believe are must-haves for this Summer!

    I guess very often people momentarily forget about the fact that the seasons are not the same in different parts of the world. I sometimes do that, too :P

      Indeed! It’s such a quirky take on the usual peplum, which I’m not sure is for me.. but the pephem, I just love it.

    Hi Kani! I really love the cute beret hat kinda thing, I think this would look incredibly cute for school (new school year for me and I’m currently redoing my wardrobe!!) Wish the weather here was as beautiful and nice as yours…I’m already missing my Summer days! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
