Parisian Vibes

Despite desperately feeling the pressure of getting an assignment completed as soon as possible, I had to pick up my blogging game, open Blogger and actually publish some content.

This is my entry for the Staple Style Challenge, a competition hosted by Staple (the label), in conjunction with The Minimalist, Naked Vice, and QT Gold Coast. I was one of the few Australian bloggers to be selected and seriously, winning return tickets to the Gold Coast would be such an honour.

I picked up these tapered trousers from Staple's newest collection. I've noticed that I am often decked out in monochromatic colours when it's cold. I don't know why, but my eyes are always attracted to such tones when I buy winter pieces. As such, I've been documenting a mental checklist as to what new items I would possibly want/ need to last me this season. And let me tell you, chunky turtle neck sweaters are right up on that list. Another factor that I've taken into a lot of consideration is the need to invest in more bright, yet staple items. Fortunately for me, I am slowly ticking off that list since these bright, red pants are doing its job perfectly. 

On the topic of travelling, I need to inform you guys that I was accepted into a two- week study tour in Kyoto, Japan this July and there are no words to describe my excitement! If anything, excitement is an understatement. I try to write relatively formal on here but if I was to describe my feelings through colloqiual texts, it'll look something like this: "OMGGGGGG IM GOING TO JAPANNNNNN!!!!!!!"
I've never been to Japan before so this will be an incredible experience to add to this already, fantastic year. I'll keep you guys posted on that one when the time is closer.

Under Control

Hey everyone! Here's to another quick post because I've missed writing about random thoughts, and really, I just wanted to ensure that the blog is updated to have some consistency.

Moreover, long, overdue updates tend to mean that I get to express myself sincerely, as opposed to the usual struggles of thinking about what I should write to accompany the imageries I have just uploaded. (Or is writing nothing sometimes accepted? Thoughts?)

To roughly brief you on this outfit's journey some time last month, I spent my Saturday night trying Ginza's 'Wagyu Shabu Shabu' (Japanese- styled hot pot) for dinner with the loveliest of friends. (Again, thank you Johnny and Iris for making this happen).

If you're sitting here pondering as to how my dinner went, stay tuned for a food review on my personal experience within the next few days. And hey, I'd say it's good timing that the food review falls within the colder months, seeing as it is now autumn. Eating hotpot is always more desirable when you're layering on the woollen clothes, and granny knits.

In regards to these jeans, I am in lust for another similar shade as Acne can do no wrong. The fit and cut is to perfection, and when paired with a subtle, backless cami, and some minimalistic, black heels, I'd say that this is your go- to dinner date ensemble. But yikes, I was not aware that I had such a visible tan line on my back...

And if you're still reading, which I must firstly congratulate you for, and that you have came to read this post from being directed on my face book page in regards to some 'announcement', I will have to apologise for making the lamest April Fools joke, as there is no serious announcement to be made (besides, the fact that I've updated the blog :P) Happy April Fools anyway!

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?
