Sweats + Denim – OOTD

Hi Everyone,

If I was to describe my favourite way of dressing with one word it would definitely be:

C O M F O R T

Until a couple years ago, wearing trackies/sweats was considered unfashionable. Well to be completely honest, it still isn’t fashionable. I know many people who wouldn’t be caught dead in them and others who basically wear them everywhere.  I have seen people style amazing ootd with trackies and it inspired me to do the same.  I could probably dedicate a whole blog post to trackies ❤

Outfit Details:

Jacket: Coles [Mixed Apparel]

T-shirt: Kmart

Sweats/Trakies/Pants: H&M

Shoes: Converse

Bag: Target

So if you are from Australia, I highly recommend you take a look at the Mix Apparel website for amazing basics. You will be surprised at how affordable and the great quality of the items they sell. I was just doing grocery shopping at Coles and saw this denim jacket on sale for $15.

I am so glad that converse is back in style! I remember wearing them every day in my teen years, and having the most random and unique styles. Black and white Chucks go with every look. I especially love the edge it gives to an outfit with a dress or skirt.

Maroon + Strips – OOTD/OOTN

Hi Everyone,

Since my previous post did so well, I thought I would continue with the topic of:

F A S H I O N

I am not a fashionista nor a stylist, just someone who enjoys dressing up for the odd occasion. [Well that’s if I’m not in my pyjamas or work uniform]. Today my lovely beautiful niece/best friend/photographer/stylist was home so I thought I would take advantage of this opportunity before uni starts and I once again neglect my ‘Creative Outlet’.

Outfit Details:

Necklace: Baazar in Turkey

Dress: Kmart

Blazer: Kmart

Shoes: Op Shop

Bag: Orginially from Forever 21 but I bought it from the Op Shop

This bag.

How beautiful is it. You can also use it as a clutch if you place the chain inside. There is nothing I love more than a versatile item.

So I was working around Chapel Street for the last 3 weeks and during my lunch breaks I went around to the numerous Op Shops in the area.  Let me just say it was amazing and I was in heaven. I bought these shoes from a Salvos store and they were:

~BRAND SPANKING NEW

~LEATHER

~COMFORTABLE

~FORMAL

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!

Family Weekend Getaway to Inverloch – Photo Diary

Hi Everyone!

This blog post includes photos from my weekend getaway to Inverloch. During the Labour Day long weekend I was fortunate enough to go away for a few days to a holiday house with my amazing family.  Inverloch is a seaside town located in Victoria. As it is on the edge, you can see spectacular views from everywhere you go. Those few days away were a much needed relaxation period away from many things such as university and social media. You realise how attached you are to technology and social media once you go to a place that does not have cellular reception.

*******

This holiday was an amazing chance to spend time with my family. We spent a lot of timefishing and, surprisingly enough, I was much better at it than I expected. I caught three whiting fish! My brother, dad and I enjoyed fishing so much the day before that we woke up at 6am to go fishing again. Much to our advantage, we caught over 10 fish over the two days.

aaaaaaThese small towns have quirky and unique shops that have an amazing display of carefully thought out items. I have taken photos from one shop that was truly my favourite. They used science lab equipment to create beautiful home decor. There were beakers used as candles, flasks for pot plants and test tubes for flowers. It such a clever idea that would add a different feel to one’s house.  DSC_4005DSC_4009DSC_4006DSC_4008

While I was taking photos for my blog, a man stopped me to ask why I was taking the photos. I informed him that it was for my blog, he handed me a soap as a present. This man’s kind gesture touched my heart!

Botanica Rustica Soaps

While we were away there were events in the town center that were quite entertaining. There were markets and parades which was an opportunity for the town center to be blocked off. The market was a great chance for exquisite sellers to showcase their amazing creations such as soaps, jewellery, candles and much, much more.

 My parents really wanted to go somewhere that had fresh organic produce. I had my doubts because we were located right next to the beach. But with the help of Google, I found a farm that sells organic produce and has a cafe as well. Unfortunately, we went in the late afternoon which meant that most of the produce had run out.

3 Ingredient Semi-Healthy Snack

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are all having a wonderful week.  This is a quick and easy recipe that I wanted to share on my blog for your benefit as well as mine. My friend shared this recipe with me and I wanted to share it with you because it is truely delicious.  This snack is perfect to nibble on and may be suitable for candy buffets or served as a dessert for guests. Another reason why I love this recipe so much is because you can just use what ever ingredients you have at home. For example  I used milk chocolate but you can replace that with dark chocolate. Likewise, you may replace the peanut butter with almond butter or what ever spread you like. It is a great opportunity to use the bananas you have at home that have started to get spotty.

Quick Tip: If you have any left over, put them in a zip lock bag and place them in the freezer. They will be amazing in smoothies!

INGREDIENTS:

Bananas

Peanut Butter

Melted Chocolate

METHOD:

1. Chop up the bananas.

2. Spread peanut butter between two pieces of banana.

 

3.Dip the peanut butter filled banana into the chocolate.

4. Place the banana onto a tray lined with baking paper and put it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

 

And Voilà!
