How can it be the first weekend in March already!
For me, February was an exciting month. I started my Stylist course at Australian Style Institute, continued my minimalist lifestyle by buying less, curated my wardrobe to be full of well loved, quality pieces and created a space that I can relax in.
The important thing for me this month was to do only the things that I love to do! That doesn’t mean that I just sit on the couch all day eating chocolate (the dream!) but to do things that make me feel full of energy and are productive. Things like: photoshoots, spending time with my partner and cat, writing content, curating my Instagram and walking home from work.
I am actually really looking forward to the cooler months, this hot weather has gone on for too long and I am missing my knitwear and jeans!
March also brings us VAMFF, which I am really excited for! I have two shows so far. Unfortunately, work commitments meant I couldn’t attend more. But there is always next year! I’m currently browsing my Pinterest for outfit ideas and the temptation to buy a new outfit is almost too much! I’m thinking of a relaxed, yet classic vibe this year, but we shall see what I come up with!
Back to the Stylist course with ASI. If anyone is wondering if they should pursue a career in personal or editorial styling, I would highly recommend an Australian Style Institute course. Not only is Lauren Di Bartolo extremely knowledgeable and inspiring, there is such an amazing amount of support from staff and past students! I’m looking forward to continuing my studying and career with them. On that note, I am looking for 3 people to style for free, so if you know anyone or would love a new outlook on your style, contact me!
Well, that is enough rambling from me! Leave a comment below with any highlights from your February.
In my ideal world, these 3 outfits would be the only ones I needed for the rest of 2016.
THE EVERYDAY EDIT
SHIRT | JEANS | SHOES | BELT | CLUTCH
THE BEACH EDIT
SWIM | HAT | SUNGLASSES | SHOES
THE NYE EDIT
DRESS | EARRINGS | BAG | SHOES
This dress is a perfect LBD for me, (and it was actually an H&M sale item!). Its long sleeves and deep v work together to create a sexy, yet low key vibe. Safe to say it’s now a wardrobe staple! As usual, I’ve paired it with my leather jacket, a choker necklace (actually a ribbon) and Ray-Bans to toughen it up. Black suede mules and my Nakedvice Olivia bag add a touch of difference to the outfit. And a lace bralette peeks out to add texture.
I’ve also noticed that I rarely wear my jacket as an actual jacket, I just sling it over my shoulders! #Fashun
Have you ever had a sale bargain that turned into a wardrobe staple?

I’ve recently noticed a lot of velvet items appearing on my insta, being worn by bloggers and on the street.
While it may be more of a winter fabric, it can definitely be worked into summer, a floral dress teamed with a velvet boot/bag or a velvet cami dress worn over a white tee.
It’s also the perfect fabric for the changing Melbourne weather!

Yes, it’s true, I’M WEARING COLOUR!
I discovered these ABBA-esque pants on Asos and feel deeply in lust.
I have slowly been adding touches of colour to my wardrobe over the past few months, it started with an army green bomber jacket and has now moved on to a light pink shirt dress and these blush pants.
As always, I will still pair them with my minimal toned pieces to keep true to my monochrome stylings.

Although it is technically Spring, I am pretty sure that Melbourne hasn’t quite got the memo!
Today was overcast and cloudy, but hopefully the rest of the week will bring some sunshine!

Just a few of my current favourites helping me to survive the Melbourne winter chill!
Topshop Leather Jacket | H&M Roll Neck Top | Dennie Yeap Linen Pants | Tony Bianco Oskar Boots | Ray Ban Sunglasses |
I am totally OBSESSING over these on trend blush shades at the moment.
Which is very unlike me as I am strictly a black, white and grey girl, but I guess there is nothing wrong with stepping out of my comfort zone once in a while…

New York Fashion Week…. 4 little words that can quicken the pulse, make a fashionista’s heart beat pitter patter and drain the wallet.
Take a look at my pick of this year’s Street Style. Overall, I feel that the stylings were more casual than the years before, think slip dresses, elongated/flared sleeves, toned down colours, and sneakers.
What are your thoughts?
Love this pinstripe suit
Neutrals with Sneakers, a tick in my book!
Zanita <3 (who I once meet!)
The addition of the choker necklace really adds some interest to the outfit
Flare upon flare
Ummm… Where can I buy this top?! It’s a need!
The fray life
Can do no wrong!
I love the addition of the sporty shoe, adds some interest to the outfit
“Go Zhang Your Self”
All white is all right
Loving the tie detail on the slip dress
This clutch would make me hungry all the time
Pj’s for Fashion Week? Yes Please!
On trend detail
“I’ll take one of this outfit to go please!”
That ring detail
Tuesdays are the new Sundays – laze in bed until noon, eat a late breakfast (all day breakfast anyone?) and then back to bed wishing the day could last forever.
