Wearing: handmade flower crown headband + vintage necklace, silk top, floral skirt, bag and sandals {photos: Rowena}

Hi friends! I’d like to extend a warm, warm welcome to my new blog @ www.kisforkani.com. If you happen to have a different bookmark saved, be sure to update it with this domain :-) I have decided to leave FELLT network and am excited for what lies ahead. After deciding I couldn’t afford a website developer just yet, I spent countless days and nights drafting designs and brushing up on my coding skills. In the end, I came up with this! And might I say, I can’t wait to start a new chapter of K is for Kani on this slice of the world wide web. Hope you all like the design. To kick it off, this is the debut post!

Today, I caught up with a couple of friends over lunch and spent the evening shopping for Christmas presents. I was looking for something that was comfy enough to wear for long drives in the car, cool enough for the daytime outdoors and yet warm enough to roam through the air conditioned shopping centre at night. After much deliberation, I came up with this. An outfit which got me reasonably excited as practically everything I wore was vintage, which I find quite funny but not at all surprising since I have so much of it in my wardrobe. I’ve had this silk shirt in my wardrobe for ages and this skirt was one of the first vintage pieces I had ever owned. It had never crossed my mind to pair the two together however yesterday, whilst shopping online, I was busy planning an outfit in my head for European Winter which consisted of a navy jumper and green floral skirt. Funnily enough, that inspired my outfit today and was what made me want to pair green and navy together. These shoes were bought from the market recently and were a major impulse buy. I just needed sandals for Summer and have been wearing these most days ever since. Don’t you just love when that happens? Exit cognitive dissonance, enter instant satisfaction!

Recently, I have been so busy working in my Etsy studio and running (and flying) around for blog work. I even hosted a fashion show, Fair Fashion @ Federation Square last week – something I didn’t know I had the ability to do until I finished! I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone’s support this year and in particular, thank you everyone for your lovely words and emails on the Peppermint magazine cover-shoot. You guys, my readers are most wonderful and I can’t wait to have you on the journey ahead :-)

Have a happy weekend!

    Oh! I guess this has been a great start. Looks great having dependence away from Feltt. And I’ve been following you and liking all your instagram posts. Its crazy where’ve you been going lately. From Sydney to Melbourne,  etc. 

    I hope you find balance in this crazy lifestyle and have time to relax too!

      You are too kind! It’s just a little bit crazy as every time I head to Sydney it always seems to be with such short notice. But it seems like things look organised from the outside.. but I am not quite sure if I could vouch for that from my side :-)

      Thank you Emily! I was trying to design some cute buttons other than the generic social media ones. I started with squares, then I ended up with scallops!

      I am sure you would look WONDERFUL in floral print! I think I have always liked to dress a bit feminine. I am not sure if I could rock a graphic print..

      Hi @Shanna89:disqus  I didn’t feel so comfortable with being on the FELLT network and really missed my own independent slice of the net. It was very difficult to start from scratch again to get my blog running with its new layout and all, but I think the blood, sweat and tears was completely worth it. Things might run slightly slowly at first whilst I am still smoothing out little bugs here and there but not for long! Thank you so much for your support and words :-)

    Love the fresh floral but minimalist look you’ve got with the new design and independent blog Connie – kudos :) 
    Always happy to see fellow bloggers try their hand at web dev to spruce up the blog’s look/ feel, I think it’s really important to nail an aesthetic that is presentable and harmonious. Okay I’ll stop with the tech speak.. it is Saturday after all. Loving the outfit, hope you have a great weekend!
