Winter Finale

me 2
Winter is officially over down here in Australia. Sad really. I do love the cold. Not that we really get much of it over here. But still …
I took some photos about a month ago wearing (surprise, surprise!) almost all black. I bought the boots last winter and I’m afraid I didn’t really get much use out of them this season as it wasn’t really cold enough. Alas, I did get to wear them at least once. This is the second time I will have a crinkled skirt in my posts which is really annoying, so please don’t judge me. I only really noticed it afterwards when I was going through the photos but I just never really think about ironing skirts. Oh well, next time I’ll learn.
And now for my last outfit of the winter. Bring on summer, I say!

Winter Monochrome

ootd
I have never kept secret my love of simplicity in clothing. My wardrobe does rather resemble a chess board, but that’s just me. I have never been brave enough to delve into the more violent shades, but I would not say that monochrome must always be bland and boring. In fact, it can be very daring. Exciting, even. The textures, the cuts, the fabrics, the details. So many possibilities…

My Little Lost Blazer

It’s been so long since my last post! My life has been so hectic recently with uni and everything. Finally, it’s all over and I’m on holidays for a month. Phew! A while ago I took some photos of an outfit I wore out to lunch. It was so long ago, I can’t really remember the circumstances but a cafe catch-up sounds most likely – it’s probably one of my favourite things to do. Since then I have actually lost the jacket. I think I left it behind somewhere. Hopefully, someone somewhere in Brisbane is happily enjoying their life one jacket richer. I only had it for a few weeks, so they got it in perfect condition.

I realise the skirt in these photos looks horribly creased and abused, but I swear this is just how it looks. I have tried ironing it – to no avail. So no judging!

University Market Day OOTD

Image

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted! Uni is proving to be a lot of work, and it seems like I don’t have time for anything. My schedule is completely packed and I have all this study to catch up on. In fact, I’m supposed to be doing an assignment right now. Oops! 

Before all this mayhem started, I took some snaps of an outfit I wore to ‘Market Day’ at the university, which was basically just a whole bunch of stalls crammed together advertising ‘free cotton candy’ and whatnot. Very hot and unpleasant I must say! However, as always, I cheered myself up with some shopping therapy. Ahh, there’s nothing quite like fashion to take your mind off a hot, busy day.

Top – Sportsgirl, Jeans – Sportsgirl, Shoes – Pied a Terre, Necklace – Lovisa.

The one thing about university which I’m particularly struggling with at the moment is the lack of a social life. I feel like I’ve lost all my friends from high school, although we do try to keep in touch, and now I have to start from scratch all over again. And it’s proving to be difficult. I just can’t seem to meet anyone who I connect with in any way. I have extremely mild acquaintances in some of my classes but nothing at all to be considered ‘friends’. Everyone else seems to have met their lifelong best friends and then there’s me without anyone. Oh well, perhaps in a few weeks everything will be different. Who knows, I might meet my future best friends in a few hours! 

Love as always,

OOTD: Shopping Day

Image

I wore this outfit out shopping today … and of course now I’m broke. Oh well, there’s nothing I like more than to spend my hard-earned cash on some lovely new outfits! And I bought three pairs of shoes today for an absolute bargain. What a successful day!
