Daily Grind

Simple, grey ensemble for a casual day of running errands. I chose to dress down the tight- fitting skirt as I am certain that the majority of people on here would know how to style such a piece for a dinner, or a night out in town (amirite?) Even though in essence, if you substitute the sneakers for heels, this could be your ideal outfit for an evening.

This is just a short post as my way of saying hello to everyone who is currently reading this blog. And yes, in case you're wondering, I have been a little more busy since uni has started... Apologies!

P.s. How beautiful is the henna on my hand?

Crisp


I thought this was the perfect outfit to welcome the Autumn/ Fall season here on the blog. Alas, those three, awesome Summer months have finally reached its ending and eventually, I won't be seeing many bare legs out in public. 

I always tend to think quite ahead, not just in terms of fashion or my personal style, but everything. However staying on topic, I knew I had to occasionally scout for new, staple pieces to add to my seasonal wardrobe throughout the Summer. I fell head over heals over these cropped, tapered trousers. There are so many options of outerwear and tops that could look great with these effortlessly- chic looking pants: jumpers, sweaters, crop tops - you name it. If you're after something that would complement your minimal, and relaxed style, this is the answer. 

I am actually trying to find a flattering black pair to have more pant options once Winter hits. (Can't be seen wearing jeans everyday now can I)? Even so, I wouldn't be surprised if you catch me mid- Winter wearing a short skirt or a pair of shorts. I've never really listened to what the weatherman had to say anyway...

Whilst shooting these photos, I have came to the conclusion that sunglasses are a blogger's best friend. Trying to take photos on a busy schedule can be quite difficult, especially if you're out for the entire day and do not have the time to reapply your make up. The process of make up reapplication is quite pivotal since the digital camera is able to capture extremely clear images, and therefore highlight unwanted flaws, if there is any. For example, imagine having that random pimple pop up one morning on the day of a shoot. And for your information, that scenario happens very frequently for me... Another occasion where sunglasses are helpful is if you're actually tired and it is physically evident through the photos. For such case, it'll be something along the lines of having minimal sleep the previous night. Thus, putting on a good pair of sunglasses will prevent and solve all these minor problems, whilst still act as a great accessory to any outfit. What an excellent inventory - and yes, I am wholly aware that there are numerous other, positive reasons as to why sunglasses could be your next best friend.

On a personal note, this week marks the first week back at Uni and I'm actually enjoying it. One of the perks of starting school again is buying new stationery. Yep, forever a student at heart. Annual trips to Officeworks will always be a fond primary/ high school memory. In saying so, the amount of stationary bought each year does reduce significantly. I still remember how I stopped using a pencil case last year because at some point, someone stole mine - tragic by the way. I resulted in just putting the pens and highlighters into the bottom of my bag, and trying to find whatever one I could when I needed to write something. However it's alright, I am more organised this year (inb4 someone steals it again).

I feel that this year will be an interesting one (in a positive way of course). I can't wait to see what will actually unfold, and what opportunities will arise before me. Regardless, I'll definitely be putting 110% into all my assessments, even if that means I will be at uni past midnight on a regular basis again.

Thanks for reading,

Rooftop Vibes

When I found this aesthetic rooftop view, I couldn't help but prance around with high levels of enthusiasm. I love overlooking the cityscape, and sighting such a scene during the evening was even more beautiful, as I got to witness the picturesque sunset.

On the other hand, my sister, (the photographer), could not care less, and just wanted the shoot to be over as soon as possible. I don't blame her. I mean, in essence, she could be shooting more interesting things than her sister, right? Soz lil' one. Yet being the kind sister that I am, a large sized Chatime, filled with peach black tea was sufficient enough for her to not complain whilst we tried to capture decent images for this post. Jokes aside, I am sure she loves our intimate, sister bonding time...

Seeing as though it was approximately 35 degrees that day, wearing this playsuit with a pair of sneakers was the only way to go. This is definitely my go- to type of outfit on warm days where I don't want to focus too much on what I'm wearing, as I'm walking down the streets trying to brave the heat. Moreover, the playsuit's loose- fitting cut made everything a hell lot comfier.

And how cute is my bucket hat? I've had it for months and the only time that I managed to publicly wear it was on the second day of Perth's Stereosonic last December. It was about time that it made an appearance on the blog.

On a different note, how is uni already starting next week? Somehow my (awesome) summer holidays, which were three/ four months long have almost reached its ending... Alas, I'll have under a week to procrastinate as much as I want without feeling guilty that I have an assignment waiting to be completed. I will be entering into third year, which means that I am now half way through this five year course. It's about time that I go hunting for more internships and clerkships because before you know it, this year will fly by and I'll be a fourth year. I just know it... I mean, it's slightly terrifying that March is just around the corner. Time, please slow down a little.
