Recently, I was invited to the media preview for the new Zara store in Chadstone. It’s really exciting to see more of my favourite international brands becoming more accessible as they make their way around Australia. The layout of their new store was so spacious and clean, making navigating your way through the store a breeze. Amongst the glittering array of their newest collection, it was the printed white blouses which caught my eye. I have a thing for nature and when shirts start throwing images of birds, zebras and puppies at me, I really can’t help but want to take them home. I had a hard choice choosing between the bird print, zebra print and puppy print – they were all essentially the same shirt and in fact, I already have the the plain ivory silk version of it from when I was in London earlier this year! But another shirt just can’t hurt. I ended up buying this zebra print one, and it has been serving me well paired with my pinafores and overalls, under vintage jumpers or even on its own as shown here!

Also, I seem to go through this major denim phase every now and then, which is so unlike me but so me at the same time. Sometimes it’s just the practicality and sleekness that emanates from the skinny cut jeans. Just last week my friend looked at me in class, puzzled, and exclaimed, “You’re wearing jeans two weeks in a row?!” Well little did she know, the week before when she skipped class, I was wearing jeans as well! So yes, it’s safe to admit that I am in another denim phase and if you’re looking to add one soft shade of denim in your wardrobe this season, I’m voting lilac for you!

A little bit of muted colour fun. Very rarely do I dress in such dull shades as I’m always one for all things bright and cheery. I really don’t know what I was feeling when this mix was put together but I sort of like the look. Melbourne has been quite cold lately so a really warm coat is always a necessity here! I’m still on the hunt another perfect winter coat. I bought this coat a couple of months ago though after wearing it non-stop in London, I now feel like it’s a little bit dull in colour for me. So far, I have just one coat that I am completely, utterly in love with – my dark orange coat from a couple of posts ago. So I’m still on the look out for another and have been using this “need” as an excuse to trawl the shops online. Next week, I’m going to be having dental surgery to have all four of my wisdom removed (*cries*) so I think I shall have plenty of time in bed to go shopping online. Feeling delirious on anaesthetics/painkillers would probably also speed up the justification journey to “check out”!

Time to bust out the colour for another cold and gloomy Melbourne Winter! These pastel pink See by Chloe wedges that I ordered right after I posted my latest “Currently Loving” post, have really inspired me to play around with the pastel palette. I’ve been constantly decorating my collared shirts with vintage sweater guards. I’ve been collecting them for over a year now and now have quite a collection. I think I love them so much as it’s just so much comfier to wear something clipped onto a collar than to throw a necklace on. I especially hate putting on a necklace on a cold morning only to have the cold metal against my skin give me the chills. I decided to break up the apricot, lilac and pastel pink with some printed pants from Topshop which are actually surprisingly warm! They were from the Summer collection and was also done in a bandeau as well – but I just find the bright colour so fitting for brightening up a cold day! So I wear them in Winter :) And these wedges? I am so happy I bought them. I should really do more of those posts every time I want to convince myself to buy something, because by the time I finish writing about how much I like something, I have totally convinced myself that the purchase is justified. Now they’re supposed to be sneaker wedges but I refuse to see them as that. I like to think that they are a bit more polished up and refined than your average sneaker on a wedge, but I must say, that I can literally run in them like as if they were sneakers.
