Happy Monday everyone! It’s just another start of a long and dreary week. Today is the last week of the semester for me, with SWOTVAC next week and exams the week after. All I should be doing right now is studying, which is kind of what I am doing, but also, kind of not really. After a long day of reading bland words on even blander paper, I decided to reward myself with some online shopping. I ended up leaving the library with three new lipsticks travelling on their way to me. A purple, plum and coral-orange colour. A great way to finish the day!

Anyway, here’s an outfit from a couple of weeks ago. I got a little overexcited when I discovered a rotunda in some gardens that I just had to take some photos with it. I’ve been wearing this digital garden print top quite a bit recently (in fact, I’m wearing it again today as we speak!). And it’s funny, because it sort of looked like the flower bed behind me in these photos. Don’t you think?

Before I get back to what I am doing, I just wanted to say a huge thank you again to everyone who dropped by my pop-up @ Topshop Chapel St this weekend. I’d love to see photos of your new floral headpieces, please tag #kisforkani on Instagram or send through to kisforkani@gmail.com. And the highlight of my Monday? Being in Amy Molloy’s ‘Ed’s letter’ column of this week’s issue of Grazia magazine. Thank you! (Speaking of thank you’s, check out Thankyou water’sΒ new campaignΒ & be inspired on how a simple bottle of water can help change the world :))
