Today’s post is is probably the fastest screen-to-blog outfit I’ve ever posted – you know when you see something and you instantly know that you need it in your wardrobe? Well this happened when I first saw this structured two piece set in ASOS’s new arrivals. I’ve been looking for a shell top like this for months now – my wishlist pieces are always so difficult to find and so when I do come across them I make them mine straight away.Β I just love the boxy look, it gives futuristic vibes which I adore and the bold wide stripe pattern make them a piece that will co-ordinate with many other separates. These glowing holographic pumps (a happy twist on the statement white heel for Summer), my new wrist love – a tortoise shell Michael Kors (a most kind festive gift from Ice Online) and some warm afternoon light were the perfect companions to debut this two piece which I just know you’ll see again soon.

Over the past couple of days after Christmas I have been enjoying my own company planning exciting new ideas for my blog in 2014. Clearing your thoughts is so much more easier when it’s a public holiday and everything is closed. Last week, I finally found my dream white hanger in the most unexpected of places – my local Woolworths. Whilst reordering my wardrobe I’ve had to say goodbye to lots of favourites which sadly have to go to clear out space and soΒ I’ve started a tictail shop to clear out some pieces after the move, which you can now shopΒ here. Most pieces are being sold at heavily reduced prices and are in excellent condition. I know many of you have emailed about having my blog shop online again. I finally found the time this month to get this going and I hope you are able to find some pretty pieces to adopt into your home :-)

    The “okay” kind of clothes to me always ends up looking pretty when you wear it. Didn’t think I’d fancy wide stripes!

    • kisforkani

      That is exactly what pulled me to it. I love the fact that it looks like a square, strange as it seems that is what drew me to it in the first place X

    Ohh you are so determined when you’re shopping. I tend to just look out for certain styles or prints… And it takes me months to years to find it the way I want it. And its a prefect summer look. I have a thing for holographic…

    • kisforkani

      Oh I have a major thing for everything holographic right now. Ever since I saw it in the Shakuhachi ’14 runway at MBFWA13, I’ve been on the hunt for holographic pieces. They’re just so much fun and a tad psychedelic too! X
