Don't Waist Your Time - OOTD



Top: Target  |  Faux leather shorts: Ynot  |  Chambray shirt: Sheinside  |  Sneakers: Forever21


It's been a while since I've blogged (understatement of the year). In fact, these photos were actually just taken with my iPhone while we were filming for my next #StyleDiary. I won't bother with trying to explain my hiatus from the blog, but I will post soon to recap on how my 2014 resolutions went! 

I love this top - not just because of it's texture and incredibly boxy cut - but also because it set me back a total of $3 at Target. When I came across it there were a bunch of these $3 tops that hadn't been discovered. Poor top. You were simply placed in the wrong home. In the right store with the right market you would have easily been snapped up at retail price without having to be reduced down to a sad $3. But as a result, I'm #winning!

Stay tuned on my channel for my new #StyleDiary featuring this #OOTD.

Somedays Lovin "Off Duty" Style Challenge











Kimono, Somedays Lovin  |  Crochet chiffon top & Faux leather shorts, Ynot  |  Fedora, UNIQLO  |  Heels, Dotti
Special thanks to Somedays Lovin, Arrow Divine, and Shambhala for the opportunity to enter.

To enter the Somedays Lovin "Off Duty" Style Challenge, I picked out this gorgeous kimono which I thought would be perfect for an 'off duty' look. I was inspired by the monochromatic print to keep the entire look black and white and I love how it turned out. Of course I had to complete the look with my current fav accessory, the fedora.  

What's your go-to "Off Duty" look?

Popbasic Paloma Collection















Tee, Infinity Scarf & Clutch, Popbasic Paloma Collection  |  Skirt, Popbasic Sherwood Collection  |  Heels, Zu

I'm going to start by saying I am a big fan of Popbasic. I've loved almost every micro collection so far and love opening a box that I know has quality items. When trawling through my over flowing closet for inspo on styling the Paloma collection, I found myself gravitating towards this beautiful green pleated skirt, also from Popbasic. I promise you that was not deliberate! 

You can never go wrong with basics. And a basic white tee should belong in every girl and guy's wardrobe. This micro collection is so classic it can be worn in hundreds of different ways. Style it with your fav pair of skinnies and you'll look effortlessly chic. 

Love love. Big tick of approval from yours truly.

WISH "Winter in the City" Style Challenge












'Unique' top, WISH  |  Track pants, Romwe  |  Clutch, Seagulls  |  The Solitaire Shoe, Jeffery Campbell

A big thank you to WISH and Honda (@honda_australia) for the opportunity to participate in the 'Winter in the City' style challenge. The shape and cut of this top is feminine, flattering and unique so I wanted to style it with a fairly simplistic outfit to allow the top to be the star of the show. The result is a classic chic look with a bit of a sporty twist. What do you think?

Closet storage solutions - Room Tour

As requested by some of my lovely viewers, I've finally filmed a room tour! Here's some additional/details tips to my closet storage solutions which you may find useful.

CLOTHES HANGERS
...have changed my life. If your closet space is too small for the amount of clothes you have, you want to invest in some space saving hangers! The below hangers are what I have in my closet and they have helped immensely. You can find all of these from eBay, but here are some links I found:

Top row:
Right - Velvet space saving hangers. You can hook these on each other to save space, and you'll never have anything fall off a hanger ever again! Life changing. I got mine from Lincraft.
Second row:
Left - Tie hanger. Great for hanging your belts that don't have hooks.
Right - 4 tier skirt/pants hanger. I LOVE THIS!!!!!
Bottom row:
Left - Space saving hanger. Have multiple items hanging vertically rather than horizontally in your closet.
Right - Alternative space saving hanger. It's the dodgier version of the one above!






This one deserves a mention on it's own - for all you scarf lovers out there you have to get your hands on the IKEA Komplement scarf hanger! 28 scarves fits on this baby. You're welcome.



SHOES STORAGE
I love this thing to death! The perfect shoe storage solution if you don't have the space but have a lot of shoes. You can fit 14 pairs on one level with this IKEA shoe tree (OMSORG), and if you build this to the top within the frame, you can fit 5 levels = 80 pairs!!!! 


MAKEUP AND BEAUTY STORAGE
If you're like me, then you need to see all your nail polishes in order to actually use them. Find a nail or beauty salon wholesaler in your area because they might sell their items to the general public. This is the one I went to in Melbourne. Otherwise try eBay for something similar. 

Next is my makeup/vanity storage (MALM), which of course is also from IKEA. There's ample space for my makeup and beauty items but I would recommend that you use draw separators, otherwise you end up with a bit of a mess in each drawer! 


JEWELLERY STORAGE
The hubby bought this jewellery cabinet for me because he saw how much I struggled with finding a storage solution for my mountains of jewellery. It's perfect for me because I also needed a full length mirror!



ADDITIONAL CLOSET
I don't think I have a lot of clothes until someone comes over and has a melt down when they see all the clothes I have. Don't all girls have lots of clothes?! In any case, I needed an additional closet because my built-in wardrobe isn't big enough to house all my babies. This frame and drawers is also from IKEA. Search PAX and go nuts building your own closet.


DESK/STUDY AREA 
This IKEA desk (MICKE) was nice and cheap and I liked that it came with a hole to fit your cables through. The long drawer is also the perfect place to store my sunglasses collection (despite only wearing one pair all the time!)

OOTD - Autumn Florals








Floral dress, Romwe  |  Chunky knit, Sheinside  |  Boots, Wanted Shoes |  Leather bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs  |  Knee-high socks, Topshop

Although we love to whinge when it's that time of the year to bid Summer farewell, those of us who love fashion are secretly excited to be able to finally pull out our chunky knits and winter boots.  That was exactly me last weekend because I got to wear my brand new pair of winter boots that had been sitting in my closet, looking awkwardly shiny. 

My default 'uniform' in Autumn is pairing a particularly girly dress with a chunky knit and boots. It's my go-to when I can't think of anything to wear and I just want to be comfortable. I love that my dresses can be trans-seasonal and versatile. In summer, I'd be wearing this exact dress at a garden wedding, and here we are in Autumn with a completely different look.

That's a style win in my books!
