Meet the newest addition to my denim family. She's called the mom jeans. A month ago, I found the perfect boyfriend jeans. Now I'm searching for my daddy jeans (does he exist?) to complete my family.

Golden Hour

Yes to another monochromatic look. This time, I decided to whip out my fedora and tie my leather jacket around my waist to dress down this girly, skater dress. As the warm weather significantly dropped to around 13 degrees yesterday night, it was a wise idea to incorporate the jacket as an accessory to begin with. 
Also, do you like my new hair? After going through a stubborn year of not wanting to trim my hair, I finally did it, and it feels amazing. I can finally brush through the ends of my hair without seeing a copious amount of split ends, begging to be cut off.

My 16 year old sister had her school formal yesterday, and being the nice sister that I am, I drove her to her hair and make up appointments. Oh, the life of a being a lady. This would greatly explain why my car is full of shoes, ranging from extremely high platforms to sneakers. I had to constantly change shoes in between driving and quickly leaving the car as sneakers did not suit what I wore. However I did manage to find sandals hidden at the bottom of the back seat as I was heading to Chinatown for a drink. Aaaaand to live up to the many established Asian stereotypes, I randomly bumped into my cousins from Perth whilst I was there, who have just flew down to Adelaide yesterday evening. We ended up having a spontaneous lunch together before I had to pick up my sister. Trust me, I was tripped out.

All About Balance

Winter calls for layering, a lot of layering. Winter also calls for a new seasonal wardrobe. I am slowly trying to achieve that goal by constantly brainstorming exact pieces that I need for the upcoming Winter - think black hats, black boots,  oversized coats, woollen sweaters, black scarves etc..
Are there any must- have winter essentials on your list?

Whilst being a wardrobe staple to many for years, sneakers are undeniably becoming a massive "it" thing for high street/ high end fashion. It's no longer just casual sneakers, a pair of skinny jeans, and a shirt. Sneakers are now the substitute for heels and stilettos. I am not complaining though, having to sometimes work for long hours, and knowing that I'll find myself at University after to study, sneakers would be my automatic go- to for shoes. Heels on the other hand, whilst beautiful and feminine, are too impractical to wear during the day, let alone imagining myself on Uni grounds with them on. Weird stares - come at me. I won't lie if I say that I haven't worn massive heels/ platform shoes to Uni before though. I mean, come on, I can wear whatever I want.

I had a great weekend to say the least, feasting at sushi train for brunch after a big night out at the University of Adelaide's Engineering pub-crawl (one of biggest pub-crawls in the world) on Friday night. There were more than 5000 intoxicated kids roaming around the east and west ends of Adelaide's CBD in their bright, green Scrabble- themed shirts. Ah, great memories - especially when all the toilets at the London Tavern were flooded. Um... (Don't worry though, we moved to a different venue shortly after).
