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?
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.
Shirt: Op Shop
Skirt: David Jones
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
These 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.
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!

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.

Sorry for the inconsistency in my posts in the past week. I have been very busy with training for a volunteer position and went on a weekend getaway with my friends to the beach side. I am fortunate enough to have this opportunity to go away for a few days to a holiday house that we booked. Our house was located at Rye in Mornington Peninsula. It was definitely very relaxing and it felt good to get away from reality for a couple of days. Our house was very big with 5 bedrooms, a tennis court and even a swimming pool. Although the house was not clean, we all tried to make do with what we had, but it was very hard. It was possibly the worst house I’ve been to in terms of cleanliness. Since getting back from the holiday house I have discovered numerous mosquito bites everywhere. I am so annoyed because I can’t stop scratching! On a positive note, as it is Summer in Australia the weather was spectacular! The beach was beautiful, the water was crystal clear and shallow.
My outfits over the past couple days were very light and simple. I made sure that when I was packing, I included clothing that did not require ironing and was versatile. Shirts are a girls best friend during summer. They are so thin and perfect for a Hijabi (someone who wears a hijab). During Summer, I find it difficult to wear socks so I was basically living in my sandals. Likewise, I try not to carry around a big bag when I am going to do quite a bit of walking. I generally carried around my purse that I mentioned in my Khaki & Floral – OOTD post. It is so light weight and I can pack so much inside. Similarly, I was always wearing sunglasses outside. If you are anything like me, you will start crying every time you look up to the sun if you do not have sunglasses on.
During this holiday I have understood a lot about myself and the strengthening of friendships. Living in the same house with friends will either make you or break you. Thankfully I did not have any mental breakdowns during my break but I certainly improved my friendships. I am extremely thankful for all the supportive and loving friends I have, without them I would not be able to continue with this blog. Thanks to them I have so many amazing ideas for my blog! These girls truly made me feel special with all their supportive words, jokes and kind words.
I love you girls! ❤
I hope you enjoyed this blog post ❤
