Spring into Spring – Ombré Jumper, White Shirt & Bows

Hi Everyone,

I haven’t done an outfit related post in so long. These photos were taken a while back when  I used to randomly get inspired to dress up and ask my niece to take my photos. (Thank you Aleyley) I absolutely love this outfit and could wear it everywhere.

Is it me or do you just feel so much better about yourself when you are dressed in an awesome outfit?

Outfit Details:

Necklace: Ottoman Treasure (Thank you to my dearest friend Dee for this beautiful necklace. It is a little heavy but worth the pain because it looks amazing with everything.

Jumper: Kmart

Shirt: Op Shop

Skirt: David Jones

Bag: Typo

I am actually wearing  a men’s jumper but I got a smaller size and folded it up to make it a “cropped” jumper.  I always check the men’s section for awesome pieces like this one. It is  generally cheaper and the smaller sizes are usually available.

And you have probably seen this shirt in one to many posts. So it is kinda obvious how much I love it.  My favourite all time combo for all occasions would have to be:

Over sized shirt + Cropped Jumper +Pencil Skirt

Thank you to my darling friend Selda for this amazing gift. It goes perfect with everything and everyone knows I love a well structured bag with double straps. I have linked the bag below so if you are looking for an amazing laptop or uni bag, go ahead and check it out.

Summer Lovin’ – Floral Blazer, White Shirt & Emerald Skirt

Hi Everyone,

WOW!

I can’t believe it has been five months since my last post. What can I say, life just got in the way and blogging was thrown on the back burner. At the end of the day, blogging is my hobby and unfortunately I have not prioritized it well.

I am happy to share that I am currently employed and doing the job I love. Over the past five months, it has been difficult to balance work, school, family and friends since I have been working almost everyday. As it is approaching holiday season, I have countless special occasions coming up and I only thought it was right to share my outfits/ideas on my blog.

I had taken these photo months ago but did not want to post them without writing anything to accompany it.

Outfit Details:

Blazer: Cotton On

Shirt: Op Shop

Skirt: Op Shop

Bag: H&M

Shoes: Rubi Shoes

I absolutely LOVE this skirt!

I can’t remember if I posted about it previously on my blog but it is a favorite.

High wasited skirts are so flattering and I believe they make me look slim. And who doesn’t want to look and feel skinny?

A white shirt like mentioned on numerous occasions is a MUST HAVE! It would be an understatement if I say it goes with everything. When wearing a collared shirt, a statement and extravagant necklace turn your outfit from day wear to evening wear in seconds.

    Blazers

If it was up to me I would wear them every day. If you have been following my blog from the start, you will know that once the word ‘Blazer’ is mentioned, my heart skips a beat. I have provided the links to my previous posts about this amazing clothing type.

Bags with double straps are the new thing. FINALLY!

Use the small straps for an elegant look and if in a rush, throw over the long straps  and run. Well that’s what happens to me.

Each-to-their-own

P.S. As you can tell, most of my wardrobe is from the second hand store. I am looking into doing a post about tips and tricks to shopping at an Op shop. If you have any questions, leave them in comments!

Clothing HAUL – Vintage, Op Shop and Brand New Items

Hi Everyone,

It has been a long time indeed. I tried to prepare blog posts for times that I knew I would be busy but it has been extremely hard. As blogging is only just a hobby, I realised that there is no point adding extra pressure on myself.

I hadn’t bought anything new in a long time. I figured it was time to add some new pieces to my wardrobe. I love watching clothing and makeup hauls on Youtube so I added my own little spin on it and decide it is only appropriate to include it on my blog.  These are the items that I have bought over the past few weeks from all sorts of stores. As you can probably tell from the title, some of these items are brand new while others are second-hand.

All the items in this post were extremely affordable.

 BRAND NEW:

KMART

These items are from a department store in Australia known as Kmart. This store has affordable items that you actually get great wear from. Both of the jumpers below were less than $10.  They are perfect for the winter weather at the moment. I was also looking for crop jumpers that I can wear over long shirts (A trend I am currently loving, over jeans and slim fit pants). These sweaters/jumpers are just perfect for that purpose.

OP SHOP:

One of my favorite second-hand stores was having a 50% off sale and I seized that opportunity to pick up some staple pieces. I have been looking for a denim skirt for some time now. I really wanted one that had buttons going down the front of it. Although this skirt is a little too big for me, it only needs a few stitches to alter it. This is one of the many things I love about buying clothes from second-hand stores. It is cheap, you find unique items and even if it does not fit you can fix it.

VINTAGE:

As I was browsing my social media, I came across a ‘Vintage Sale Warehouse’ invitation that was held really close to my house.This sale was only on certain days and I finally found an opportunity to see what all the fuss was about. It was a huge warehouse full of vintage/second-hand clothes for only $5 each. Although these are dresses, I am planning on pairing them with slim fit pants or a pencil skirt. I will definitely be including all of these pieces in future blog posts.
