Sport Luxe

If done well, wearing a nice pair of sneakers to complete an outfit is such an effortless and chic look. Despite the continuous heat waves, I have decided it was time that I wore this burgundy vest out in public, as waiting for the weather to cool down seemed highly unlikely in the near future. As much as I do appreciate this warm weather, I am looking forward to when the weather significantly drops so that I can layer this vest with other apparel.

As I'm slowly cleaning out my wardrobe, clearing out any items that will never be worn again, I have realised that my style is once again, evolving. It is slowly becoming a mixture of basics and timeless pieces that can be re- worn several times without any hesitation. I'm also getting better at shopping, and am no longer the girl who buys anything and everything that looks cute (which by the way, ends up being in their wardrobe for months untouched anyway). Nowadays, I think more carefully before I make a purchase by creatively imagining what I could style it with. This technique has helped me stop making impulsive purchases that I may not ever wear, and instead, use that money to eat something fancy instead. That logic.
On another note, my friends and I are going to have another stall at the Gilles Street Market next month (March). If you reside/ will be in Adelaide then follow me on Instagram to keep updated with when we're having it! We will be selling our pre-loved items, accessories and shoes. Hopefully everything will go well!
Thanks for reading and of course, enjoy your week by doing something interesting. I'm really looking forward to the Fringe festival (as well as the garden of unearthly delights, the festivities, international tourists, pop-up bars etc.) yet am clueless as to what I should watch. Any suggestions? x
